If you’ve fantasized what it might feel like to wear an honest-to-goodness royal headpiece, there’s no occasion like your wedding to rock a regal crown or bridal tiara… as long as your overall bridal look can carry off this dramatic wedding accessory.

Tiaras and crowns are best worn without additional extravagant bling (keep the earrings and other bridal jewelry delicate and refined), and are most appropriately worn with classic ballgown, A-line and drop-waist wedding gown styles. Beyond that, you can rock a bridal crown with almost any hairstyle, from high up-do’s and elaborate twists to long, sleek, wavy locks. Become the queen you have always dreamed of being with one of these 5 regal bridal crowns and tiaras!
