Many brides choose to pair their wedding veil with a tiara or other headpiece such as a jeweled headband. Tiaras are jeweled headpieces that resemble a crown, and should be purchased with the bride's wedding hairstyle in mind.

Typical costs:

  • Economy -grade wedding tiaras typically cost $50 and less. Often, these tiaras are plastic coated with metal, with simple rhinestone detailing. Generally, these tiaras won't have any precious gemstones or crystals. The Knot[1] sells tiaras starting at $25, with simple rhinestone headbands starting at $13-$16. Wedding-Veil.com[2] also sells many economy-grade tiaras.
  • Tiaras with precious gemstone detailing can typically be purchased for $75 to $200. Often made from metals instead of plastic, these tiaras have an expensive look and feel. David's Bridal[3] and Jessica McClintock[4] both sell tiaras in this price range, as well as some economy-grade options.
  • Designer crystal wedding tiaras typically cost $250 to $500 and higher. Swarovski crystal tiaras fall in this price range.

What should be included:
  • Tiaras may be silver or gold in color with crystals and clear or colored rhinestones.
  • Tiaras comes in two basic styles, according to WeddingChannel.com[5] . Large tiaras sit high on the crown of the head, while smaller tiaras are meant to wrap around a bun or similar updo.
  • Some tiaras will have combs attached to the ends for secure placement in the bride's hair. Other styles have small loops at each end, which can be secured to the hair with bobby pins.
Additional costs:
  • If you choose to wear a veil with your tiara, the average bridal veil costs $274, according to the Bridal Association of America[6] . Cheaper versions are available starting at around $20.
  • Many brides pay a stylist to create their wedding updo. The average cost of a bride's hair and makeup is $183, also according to the Bridal Association of America. On the low end, beauty schools and budget salons offer bridal updos for $30 to $50.
Discounts:
  • Look for tiaras on eBay[7] starting at $11 shipped.
  • InStyle Weddings[8] advises that many bridal shops have similar tiaras available at different price points. If the first tiara they show you is expensive, shop around for a similar style with artificial gemstones.
Shopping for a tiara:
  • The Knot[9] has a helpful glossary of bridal headpiece options.
  • According to Brides.com, some brides wear a floral headpiece rather than a tiara. Fresh flowers pinned in the hair can make an elegant statement.
  • If visiting a hair stylist, always bring your tiara or headpiece and veil to your appointment so he or she can work those elements into the updo.
