I really liked the emerald tiara she was wearing. Personally I think she had on way to much jewelry and think how heavy all that jewelry is and having to wear it for hours.

In a lot of Asian cultures brides, royal or not, wear a lot of heavy jewellery (you'll see this trend in Bruneian, Malaysian, Indian, Pakistani weddings, for example). It marks their status as a new bride and start of a new married life full of happiness and prosperity. Royal brides are understandably heavily bejeweled to not only reflect their status, but also that of their new husband and his family. It is all based on deeply rooted tradition.
I've seen pictures of non-royal Bruneian and Malaysian weddings and even those brides wear tiaras (some are real, some aren't).

I did note that the new bride, Princess Raabi'atul 'Adawiyyah, did not wear any notable new pieces. Both the ruby and emerald parures, for example, have been worn by several members of the royal family before.

The emeralds are stunning but I think the tiara is too much. Though, the necklace and brooch are amazing.

I don't think it's tacky but I tend to like over the top. It's their custom so it is fine for them.

Personally I'm not fond of tiaras being worn with head scarfs. But that's cultural diversity. The emerald parure is especially stunning. The design of the ruby tiara looks a bit to stiff for my taste, but the stones are whoppers as well.

Even the purses are diamond encrusted!

In the older pics Queen Saleha always wears the tiara in her hair, but in newer pics she wears it on her headscarf. When did she change her preferances? I can't say that I like the look of tiaras on cloth.
