Some may feel that wedding crowns are for traditional brides—to a degree, they're right. After all, women have worn sparkling bridal tiaras for centuries.
Tiaras—Not Just for Royalty!
We all know about the crown jewels, and at Bridal Styles, we love the fanfare every time a new princess chooses a tiara from a vault. However, the bridal crown tradition isn't just for royalty or limited to weddings.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, ballrooms across Europe and the United States were filled with women wearing stunning tiaras with matching jewelry (these dazzling sets are called parures). These pieces were worn to impress, express status and wealth, and elevate a woman's beauty. In fact, many of the beautiful hair accessories seen on Bridgerton, the popular Regency-era romance series on Netflix (based on books by the same name), are tiaras.
As times changed and they passed from grandmother to mother to daughter, tiaras evolved into an accessory synonymous with elegant, feminine, romantic, and timeless style.
Modern Wedding Crowns
Just like back when women adorned themselves with parures, today's crystal wedding tiaras can convey the wearer's unique style. Minimalist brides, non-traditional brides, women who envision themselves in a flower crown, and those who wish to make a royal statement can all find the perfect finishing touch to their bridal look with just the right bridal crown.
Wedding Day Tiara Inspiration for Every Bride
Tiaras come in many different heights and styles, from soft and delicate to grand and elaborate. They can be worn with or without bridal veils and look fantastic crowning updos, downdos, and everything in between.
The tiaras in the following images are all handmade at Bridal Styles Boutique and encrusted in genuine crystals that glimmer and shine with your every move. Of course, you're not limited to silver bridal crowns or even glittering crystals! As you'll see, our tiaras can also gleam with soft ivory pearls and can be made in pale gold.
