Tiaras have been associated with brides since ancient
Although Diana Spencer wore an exquisite family heirloom tiara for her royal wedding in 1981, the bridal fashion for tiaras didn’t catch on again until the late 90s. By the time Princess Diana’s daughter-in-law, the lovely Kate Middleton, became a bride in the spring of this year— wearing a borrowed diadem from the queen’s family collection—tiaras had been back in vogue for years. Something about that “princess bride” sensibility had captured the fancy of the times and went deep into the hearts of many brides.
Whether you wear a diamond, paste or glass tiara; or a wreath of fresh flowers or just one fragrant rose tucked behind your ear; whether you wear a jeweled ornament, or a crown of vintage wax orange blossoms, or no headpiece at all when you are a bride; you wear a regal legacy!
Love. Listen. Let go.
....with love from Cornelia
