Tips for Choosing and Wearing a Bridal Crown?

  1. 1. Ensure that your tiara won’t clash with your wedding dress and bridal jewellery.

  2. Remember, your crown should match, not overpower your bridal look. Your dress is the statement, the crown is the ‘cherry on top,’ not the ice cream.
  3. 2. Placement is key.

  4. There is a golden rule for this – no more than an inch and a half from your hairline. To check, first place your thumb on your chin and your index finger between your eyebrows. Then, move your hand up so that your thumb is between your eyebrows. Your index finger is now touching where the base of the crown should rest.
  5. 3. To maximise the advantages of wearing a crown, try to pick one that complements your face shape.

  6. As a rule of thumb, you should select a tiara with a structure that is opposite to your face shape. For instance, a pointy one will accentuate a long face, while a round, flat one may emphasise a moon-shaped face. Test shapes before selecting your preferred style to avoid this and get the look you want.
  7. 4. For optimal grip, avoid washing your hair before wearing your bridal crown.

  8. Because of added texture, having day-old hair will keep the tiara from slipping.
  9. 5. It sounds obvious, but finish your hairstyling before you put the tiara on.

  10. Make sure to apply your hairspray before wearing the crown to avoid damage to the crown.
  11. 6. Secure the tiara in place by using bobby pins for extra grip.

  12. For aesthetic purposes, ensure that the bobby pins are invisible so they won’t attract unwanted attention.

7. Last but not the least:

Enjoy your big day and flaunt your tiara like a queen!
