The tiara is a common type of European crown often associated with Catholic popes. The papal tiara is usually shaped like a beehive with a small cross on top and was worn at least as far back as Sergius III in the early 10th century. Another type of tiara, which look quite different from papal ones, is often worn by European queens and used to crown beauty pageant winners. Queen Elizabeth II has the largest collection of historical tiaras.
Tiaras can really add to the whole fairytale factor, and loads of brides choose to wear one at the alter. If you’re one of them, select your tiara with care – some of them are quite tacky looking.
Wearing a wrong tiara can alter your face shape by making it appear too thin or full. A tiara should frame your face by drawing attention to it.
Those with a long face can opt for a wedding tiara with little or no height that extends from one side to the other at an even height.
For an oval face, avoid tiaras that peak at the top. Wearing a headband, forehead piece or a back piece will make your face a little rounder.
If you have a round face and wish to make it appear longer, choose a wedding tiara with some height or one that has a peak. To make a full face appear thinner, wear a tiara that peaks into a V at the top.
