Tiaras really can look elegant and sophisticated if you choose the right design, shape and size.
Don’t choose a large tiara that looks like you are wearing a crown. A simple, small, elegant tiara will do in order to get that princessy look every girl dreams of. You can even combine the tiara with a veil just like Kate Middleton did with her long hair and we are sure you will look stunning as much as she did on her wedding day. She could have chosen the biggest tiara there but she opted for a small sophisticated tiara that we will all remember.

Same as chignon bun only placed a bit more between your head and your neck. We suggest you leave your chignon bun a bit messy to get that rustic look everyone’s into in the wedding industry.

This flower crown will be a knockout with a simple low chignon.
42. Knotty Hairdo Wedding Hairstyles
