12 Modern Bridal Tiaras
This week let’s look at some tiaras. Tiaras and brides are a natural combination. They go together like milk and cookies or grooms and rented tuxes. And these days, there are plenty of modern options that can stand alone…without a veil backing it up.
There are more tiaras out there than you could even imagine and searching through them all can be quite daunting. The best way to narrow down your search is to try to stay away from anything that a reigning beauty queen or a princess might wear. Instead, look for unique creations that have little in common with beauty pageants and fairy tales.
Picture these first two tiaras without the tulle because it is completely unnecessary. These are fairly traditional, but the design makes them more modern versions.
Of course you want to be a star on your big day, but I’m not sure this is the way to do it. This tiara will surely have your guests talking, although they might be distracted by the fact that you seem to be channeling an angel. (Anyone else think it looks a bit like she’s got a halo?)
I adore the sparkling swirls on this tiara.
I like that this tiara lies close to the head without the peak of a typical tiara.
This tiara has a light, delicate feeling and resembles a hair vine, only with a bit more structure.
Usually I’m all about symmetry, but I love side tiaras. Side tiaras are asymmetrical tiaras that have the detail set to the side. Look for one that suits you and goes well with your dress.
Whatever tiara you do choose, though, make sure you don’t wind up with something like this. There is such a thing as too unique.
