Wedding Tiara Shape

Wedding TiaraA tiara and veil can enhance your natural beauty or draw attention to your flaws. The wrong wedding tiara for your face shape can make a long face look “horsey” or a full face appear fat. The general rule of thumb is your headpiece should balance out the shape of your face. If you have a full or round face, for example, consider princess tiaras with peaks at the top to elongate your face. Conversely, a long face requires a flatter (and perhaps wider) piece. Heavy beading or other adornments can help balance a long, thin face. Oval faces are pleasingly symmetrical and tend to look well with most headpieces (although you will probably want to avoid a peaked tiara). To break up an oval face vertically, try a bridal headpiece that fits low in front, across your forehead. The photo at left shows an Illusions tiara. You can see that tiara and more here.
