The perfect wedding crown is like the cherry on top. It adds a punch of finality to your wedding look and marks the moment with a touch of regal flair. And gone are the days when crowns and bridal tiaras were sparkly one-note designs! You can go boho, romantic, chic, or full regal. There are dainty vines of flowers and halo headbands — we even found a stunning bridal crown with a golden bee perched on the side! No matter your wedding day style, there is a crown to suit you well. Let’s jump into a few FAQs before we share our top picks. We’ll start with our favorite question:

Is it weird to wear a crown on your wedding day?

No, it isn’t weird to wear a bridal crown to your wedding! You do you. In fact, while it’s more of a fun accessory now, bridal crowns are more traditional than you might realize. Historically, brides all around the world wore crowns for various reasons to do with heritage, faith, and tradition.

How do I choose a wedding crown?

Just like any other accessory, the crown should complement the rest of your look. An ornate crown might be better suited for a minimal dress. And the opposite effect is also true: a show-stopper dress may be topped off with a daintier crown. (But also more is more and, again, you do you.) Regardless, you may want to go more low-key with jewelry that complements the crown.

Can you wear a veil with a crown?

Absolutely! We suggest you get your crown before veil shopping so that you can take it with you when you try on different options. Alternatively, you could rock the veil at the ceremony and switch to a crown for the reception. It’s a simple way to sport a second look without doing a total dress change.
