Tiara Tea by Susan Hanniford Crowley

Tiaras! Do you have one? Do you wear it? 

I’m wearing one. Here’s me in the tiara I wore at a Tiara Tea with some of my gal pals.

There are lots of myths about who can and when to wear a tiara!

Myth #1: Tiaras and crowns are only worn by royalty!
Answer: Not true! Tiara wearing for special events became popular in the 19th century and continues to grow in popularity.

Myth #2 Tiaras can only be worn by married women or brides!
Answer: Not true again! Tiaras can be worn by any young woman or older woman for special events. Royals have been wearing them in their teen years. Some royals who have never married, still wear them.

Myth #3 Tiaras are so expensive that they are out of the reach of most people.
Answer: Not necessarily! You can get lovely-looking tiaras that are made of inexpensive metal and glass stones. If you want to spend the bucks, you can go into a jeweler’s and say you want to buy one. (You’ve made their day! And no, my tiara is not one of the expensive ones.)

Where do you wear a tiara?

Traditionally, you wear a tiara to special/fancy dress events late in the afternoon but preferably in the evening. You often wear them to black tie or white tie events.

I’m all for making new traditions. Why not have a fancy dress event at other times! A Tiara Luncheon! A Tiara Tea!!!

Secret: I found everything at the Tiara Tea tasted even better! Smiles!

    I’ve never had a tiara, per se, but did have a chrome metal headband with a sort of cross-hatch design which featured many CZ settings along each juncture. Would be considered more of a coronet, but in my culture of course just a fancy headband or minimalist tiara-inspired headpiece. It was one of my all-time favorite things. Ended up selling it to another admirer. It was a really great design that could go almost anywhere. Amazing that I’ve found a place to talk about it here, lol, but this is the memory prompted by your post. I agree that these are definitely still worn. I see variations on Etsy for sale. I wonder if many brides wear the tiara they received in teen years for another special occasion.
