Some might trace the tiara trend back to the wedding of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and the resurgence of young royals. (Will Megan Markle wear a tiara?! Only time will tell.) Others give props to the Game of Thrones costume department for the serious headpieces worn by queens both good and bad. Whatever your inspo, it's not every day a woman gets to wear a crown, so take advantage, brides! Here are 10 stunning picks from minimalist to major drama!

It'll be hard to take off this 14K gold-filled tiara at the end of the day. (Want my advice? Dust it off for New Year's Eve!) A beautifully undone up-do will keep it from feeling too precious.

BHLDN Francesca Tiara, $615 USD, bhldn.com

If your gown is Grecian-inspired (or you're an authentic Greek goddess), this is the final touch you deserve – laurel wreaths were worn by Olympic heroes in ancient times.

For the celestial bride who loves a bit of whimsy, this vintage-inspired tiara comes on a velvet ribbon in a variety of colours to match your hair (practical and pretty).

Don't let ubiquitous festival fashions ruin the flower crown – it's still a delightful way to showcase your boho style, especially when exquisitely handmade using silk flowers and pearls.

A unique stunner for the non-traditional bride, this studded headband is set at a slight angle to create a halo effect that manages to feel both medieval and modern.

A gorgeous, dramatic crown with a bit of a Black Swan feel, which includes hand-crafted filigree medallions and blooms studded with Swarovski pearls.

Shhh, don't tell the others, but this circlet with intertwined leaves and flowers may be my favourite. If you're the earth goddess type who also really loves the finer things in life, this is the one for you.

Mignonne Fauna Crown, $265 USD, mignonnehandmade.com

This one has princess bride written all over it. A small-scale, traditional tiara that won't steal the spotlight from your bridal beauty.

Hundreds of freshwater pearls make up this sweet halo – a sophisticated upgrade on that standby wedding staple, baby's breath.

BHLDN Cordeline Halo, $250 USD, bhldn.com

You can't beat the price on this muted flower crown. The subtle shades have an antique, yet hipster-y feel – I imagine the groomsmen wearing bow ties and suspenders (no shade, it's a popular look for a reason!)
