Who says a bride has to have royal blood in order to rock a tiara on her wedding day? Bring out your inner princess with a sparkling headpiece that tops off your look with just enough bling.
There are plenty of gorgeous styles that enhance a variety of wedding hairstyles and gowns. Delicate pieces featuring one or two simple rows of diamonds look lovely as an understated accessory, while intricately designed tiaras will crown your coiffure with eye-catching sparkle. Whichever style you choose, do a trial run-through of your complete hairstyle before the big day to ensure your tiara is styled to perfection.
See how these real brides "crowned" themselves with gorgeous tiaras. They may not be Kate Middleton, but they look regal and beautiful in headpieces embellished with diamonds and crystals.
