The Magic of a Tiara
Whether it is a tiara to get married in, wear to a prom or a special occasion most girls love to wear a tiara at least once. It is different from what you are accustomed to and will undoubtedly make you feel very special, bringing magic and sophistication. At Carnmeal we have 100's of different designs of Tiaras to suit every special occasion. Our main range can be found on our tiara page on our web site.
But why a Tiara?
Is it just because Tiaras are associated with royalty - the wearing of a crown. What little girl does not dream of being a princess even for a day? In fact tiaras pre-date all of our modern concepts of royalty and can be traced back to ancient Egypt. Indeed much of the classic designs used in our modern tiaras owe their design to the ancient Pharaohs and Grecian.
Choosing a Wedding Tiara.
This is very much down to personal taste and budget however there are one or two simple rules:
Buy your tiara well in advance of the occasion. Avoid the last minute panic. It needs to be right for you and not just look good in a picture.
Decide upon your hair style for the day. Ideally, when you visit your hairdresser take your tiara with you. Your hair style and tiara should be one. Then if you are not happy you will have time to change it.
Above all feel comfortable and a million dollars when you wear your tiara.
Remember it is your wedding and you are the most important person on the day. Make your tiara special. Do not perhaps choose the same tiara as your bridesmaids. If you want a special colour crystal in your tiara to match the rest of your wedding day colour scheme always ask. This is only possible on the range of handmade tiaras for instance: Cascade Tiara stocked in 4 colours however available in over 40 different coloured crystal stones.
Tiaras for children
Most adult tiaras with be suitable for children. Before you choose tiaras for children ensure that they can be adjusted. Although there is often very little difference in the size of an adult head to a child's there is still a difference. Often the adjustment is just a careful bending of the metal band to fit.
Most of our tiaras are made around a soft metal headband. This means they are easy to adjust and suitable for children.
