If I were Meghan, I'd opt for hair jewelry instead of a tiara.
It would be something different. I'd love to see some of the brooches in the collection used in this way.
For those that will criticize her for a veil, they will also criticize her for wearing white. And this being her second marriage is being treated as a non-issue here. She will have everything that a first time bride will have. The only reason she'd forego something is if it doesn't go with the entire theme of what she and Harry wants to do with the wedding.

This is a royal wedding in a large and old/historic Church. My feeling is that she is going to go all out..tiara, veil and a shade of white/cream/ivory dress.

I never thought she'd wear the Halo for this reason.

I do not believe that Meghan will wear the Halo Tiara. This is to be her wedding day. There would be too many comparisons between her and Catherine. After all, Meghan's wedding is not a contest. The wedding is a religious and sacred event.

I would imagine 99% of people wouldn't even think of the idea that Meghan shouldn't where a veil at her wedding and so I think it is a mute point.

However, I personally quite like the idea of a royal bride opting to forego a veil - but if she did, the tiara would have to be quite elaborate I think.

Brides born royal (including Princess Anne) in the British Royal Family traditionally do not where a veil that covered their face. I fully expect Meghan to wear a diamond tiara and a veil covering her face.

Actually, I think wearing a veil with no blusher is the best option for a second wedding, and the idea of a lower anchor for the veil certainly has its merits. Mette Marit and Stephanie pulled that look off with class and Clare wore a beautiful veil attached either to or behind her tiara and wore no blusher.

I don't know when blushers entered into common usage in the UK and such countries because they rarely look good. I am going to step out on a veritable twig to opine that Princess Grace really kicked-started that custom and if it is made the same way and with the same fabric maybe it will work. Mostly though I find them an annoyance e.g. Sophie and Catherine's were awfully heavy and droopy.

If I have to pick a lasting impression of a wedding party then, without a doubt, it would be Sarah Chatto's. And I think she had the very best tiara. Perhaps she could lend it to Meghan as "something borrowed" since she has no daughter and Harry is her Godson.

That photo, for me, encapsulates everything good about a bride. She looked like a swan surrounded by signets. It is a serenely self-confident bride who dresses her adult bridesmaids so very like herself and that particular "look" is inspiring.

Eh not a fan of the Floral Tiara won by Sarah Chatto. Reminds me too much of the Strathmore as well.

I ran across the wedding dress of Lady Sarah Armstrong Jones and I like the bodice on that one too. Lady Sarah Chatto's bodice was lovely except for that pronounced point at the bottom..that was kinda off for me.

I stand corrected, her daughter and daughter-in-law did but she didn't.

Sophie and Kate has the same problem which the veil kept rubbing their faces. I don't know it's because the fabric is too soft or too heavy. Zara's veil, even though it is messy to me, is airy (or hard?) enough to keep certain distance from her face.

btw I pretty like Zara's tiara-veil-hair combination (although I still think the veil is awful), I hope Meghan will go for similar style.

It would be amazing if she wore Margaret's turquoise tiara. I think it would be a great wedding tiara. Of course, I am not expecting it. It's just too bad it has not been seen in years.

camilla herself wore grey to her ceremony with charles, and i guess that is precisely given she was married before. whether meghan will choose the same is to be seen. my guess will be she will still wear white.

This thread is about a wedding tiara, not about slants -imagined or real- about the colour of Meghan's wedding dress. Or slants -imagined or real- about her wearing a veil or not.

Further posts about the colour of the wedding dress will be deleted without notice.
Further arguments with absent or imagined critics will also be deleted without notice.

The DM is now claiming that Meghan will wear the Halo (though I don't see how they could possibly know that).

Evidently the DM is unaware that the Halo is going to be out of the country during the time Meghan is getting married....

The Spencers are an old family and tradition is important. Traditionally the tiara is worn only by either the wife or the daughter of the earl (or daughter in law). That is why Diana wore it. Even the earl's future granddaughters from Edmund (the younger son of the earl) who would be Spencers in name, would not likely wear.

Besides wearing a tiara at the wedding is an introduction into the royal family not the Spencer family. It would be one thing if Meghan had a family tiara like Diana did, or Camilla does (though obviously didn't wear at wedding). But she doesn't.

I might be wrong, but didnt Prince Harry inherited the Spencer tiara on his 30th birthday together with Prince William ?

The Spencer tiara is owned by Diana’s brother, not Harry and William. While she may have worn it many times, it never belonged to her.

No he didn't. It didn't belong to his mother, it belonged to his grandfather and now belongs to his uncle.

Sorry, my mistake. I just read somewhere that Harry inherited it
