Tiaras aren't just for royalty

Posted by Nicole Grant on

There are lots of things you get to do on your wedding day that you wouldn’t do otherwise and wearing a tiara is one of them. Once you get that sparkling tiara fastened into your wedding hairstyle you’ll really feel like a princess! Here are some tips on wearing a wedding tiara.

Consider the position of your wedding tiara

If you are getting your hair done professionally your stylist should be able to position the tiara in exactly the right place for you. It should be placed at the crown of the head, or further back, not on top of the forehead.

Attaching your veil and tiara

Your veil doesn’t have to be fixed to your tiara; it can be worn at the back of your head by using a back piece if you don’t wish for it to cover your face. If you are going with a veil over your face, it can be attached to the tiara utilising fabric hook and loop closures so that your veil can be taken off without removing your tiara and ruining your hairstyle.

Check the size of your tiara

Your tiara should enhance your hairstyle and your wedding dress, not overshadow it. If you are a smaller person, find a simple narrow tiara to avoid looking top heavy. Don’t be tempted to go for an extremely large tiara even if you like the look.

Add colour to your tiara

If you are going with crystal tiaras, which are currently very fashionable, they can be found in a wide variety of colours and you are guaranteed to find something that pair wells or complements your wedding accent colour. Don’t be scared to use colour in your tiara – it could be your something blue.

Fix the tiara in place

Ensuring your tiara is secure will stop you worrying that it is going to fall off and fidgeting with it throughout the day. The majority of tiaras have two loops at the ends of the semi-circle which makes it easier for you to secure the tiara to your head. Pick something comfortable and lightweight and you won’t even notice it is there.
