They may have a “day” for everything these days, but International Tiara Day is definitely a holiday I can get behind!
The first International Tiara Day was held on May 24th, 2005 in conjunction with Barbara Bellissimo’s Seasons of Success. In 2009 Lynanne White of American Rose Bridal along with a few of her employees decided everyone should be able to wear a tiara, not just brides. Lynanne researched to see if there was a tiara day. After contacting and receiving permission from Barbara, Lynanne took over International Tiara Day in hopes of helping all women feel like a princess. Lynanne thought May 24th was an appropriate day since it was Queen Victoria’s birthday. We hope to continue this tradition every year.
So happy birthday, Queen Victoria, and on this day, you get to feel like a princess, or a queen, or a fashionista with fabulous flair for headwear.
Brides, you may be thinking about how to ‘top’ your bridal gown look, and if your bridal shop has nothing but traditional tiaras that look like Miss America crowns (unless that’s what you want!) check out the amazing, ultra-creative tiaras and headbands from one of my favorite companies, Twigs and Honey:
