The tiara is most certainly a crucial accessory of the whole “princess for a day” look. It makes the bride look a step above everyone else and really gives her that royal twist.
The tiara that we know today is nothing close to the tiara from ancient history. Today, the tiara can simply be a flat head band with pearls and rhinestones. Although they are not crown like, they still provide the sparkle and glow to the bride. In addition, today many brides choose to wear a tiara that’s more royal, one that has actual height like a princess. The princess is light, comfortable and has a comb so that it can be adjusted perfectly on one’s head. They usually have rhinestones and make the bride stand out.
In the olden days tiaras were a sign of royalty and nobility. The tiaras of some of the Eastern Kings were actually ornate and heavy. However, in more classic and simple times, the nobility often wore a band of cloth around their head and tied in a knot behind as a tiara. Yet, mush richer tiaras had been worn a whole lot earlier by the Egyptians. They were extremely delicate and beautiful. For example, one tiara which belonged to the princess was made of delicate flowers in gold wire set on stones. The Greeks on the other hand made their tiaras out of gold and silver and would wear them on special occasions.
Slowly through history, the tiara evolved into the tiara that we are used to today. Of course, the different styles of tiaras have varied a lot throughout history. They have ranged from royal crowns and princess tiaras to a modern trend towards side tiaras and asymmetrical designs.
So whether you are wearing your hair up or down don’t leave out a tiara on your special day. Today, they come in hundreds of different styles with a choice of any rhinestone, Swarovski, bead or crystal. A beautifully designed tiara makes a great bridal hair accessory to make a bride look and feel like a princess on her wedding day in addition to making her look extremely elegant and stand out in the crowd in her own special way.
