The tiara you choose should echo the embellishments on your dress. Tiaras are available in a wide variety of styles and materials, including sterling silver or gold-plated metals and wires, high-quality glass pearls, glittering Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, rhinestones and elegant glass seed beads. To expedite selection of a tiara, it's best to have selected both your dress and hairstyle. Tiaras for a bride should echo the embellishments on your dress and compliment your hair.

The colour of the gown is a key determining factor for a tiara. If your gown is white, rhinestone bridal tiaras in silver or silver-tone are appropriate. For ivory gowns, gold bridal tiaras are the best choice. A champagne or dark ivory gown needs a gold or gold-tone tiara with embellishments in either ivory or champagne. Consider your face shape when wearing a tiara. If you have a long face, choose a tiara with a low profile that won't add height. For a round face, a tiara with some height or a peak will add needed length. An oval face can wear any style tiara.

A gown lavishly decorated with pearls needs a pearl tiara to finish the look. Pearl tiaras also work well with sequinned gowns. If you're partial to crystals or rhinestones, that style of tiara can be worn with just about any type of gown. Another style strategy is to match the tiara it to your jewellery. If you're wearing a classic string of pearls and pearl earrings, a pearl tiara is a great choice. Just remember to match the colour of the pearls in the tiara to the colour of the pearls on your dress. A crystal-accented tiara works well with diamond earrings and a solitaire pendant. For shorter hair, wear a tiara with a more diminutive shape that won't overwhelm your hairstyle.
