Of course there is a chance she could wear it..I just don't think it will happen. She'll have the York tiara on is my guess. No reason really to think she wouldn't.

That's not true. That's actually more of a recent development. Princess Margaret and Princess Anne both wore tiaras prior to being married.

She does look a lot like the queen mum. And the tiara would suit her worn on her forehead. I would love a dress inspired by that era.
It's an often repeated myth that only married women wore tiaras. Some noble families might have this tradition. But most royal families, the British included, didn't have this rule. Even in Princess Victoria, who never married, wore tiaras. And as was already mentioned, both Anne and Margret wore frequently wore tiaras before their marriage.

I somehow don't think that Eugenie will chanel her great-granny's look on her wedding day. Wearing a tiara on the forehead was quite 1920s, and I think she'll opt for a more contemporary look.

It can't be ruled out that she'll borrow a tiara from the Queen, but I don't think that she will. Neither Kelly nor Zara did, both wore one of Anne's tiaras. Sarah's tiara is really beautiful, and both girls are very close to their mother. So I'll be really surprised if she wears something other than Fergie's tiara.

Exactly and Princess Alexandra also wore tiaras once she hit 18, long before she married. In the same vein Alexandra wore the tiara worn by her mother on her wedding day as did Anne who wore the same one her mother wore and Helen Windsor wore the base of her mother's wedding tiara as well etc. I do think E will wear her mother's also as they are close and I think it will be beautiful.

I just can't even deal with the image of Eugenie stepping out of the bridal car, wearing some retro 20s bridal gown, and her great-grandmother's tiara on her forehead. It will be like the rising ghost of the Queen Mother! Kinda freaky, but amazing at the same time. I'm weird like that.
