That Fair Maiden dress can be fancied up with using elegant materials instead of the basic cottons it's shown in. Using silks and taffeta and brocades will make it a dress a tiara will complement.

Like and exactly what I was thinking.

The link, Fair Maidens Dress - 100510 by Medieval Collectibles, is for a ready-made dress, not a pattern for a dress.

Or, am I confused and you meant something else?

Oh no! It is already here! Is my dress wrong?

With love,

No, your dress is NOT wrong. I think a tiara with your choice of dress will be beautiful.

The dress is beautiful. It is absolutely not wrong.

I just asked how well a tiara goes with that dress. I don't know.

Cat, it's your wedding and your dress. Whatever you choose is right

Oh, my goodness...so many things to stress over.

Okay, Cat, take a deep breath and relax.

Your dress is lovely and the tiara, especially since it will be "specially made," will look beautiful with it.

The most important thing to think about here is that you radiate your joy and happiness on your wedding day regardless of what wear or don't wear.

Just remember, you will be surrounded by your family, Catina's family (mates, etc.), your dear friends from school and, best of all, Carl will be at the end of your walk down the aisle to join your lives together to begin your adventure as husband and wife. That's all that really counts.

When it's all over, your wedding clothes will be packed away and the tiara will be carefully put away. Please try not to stress here. Focus on the joy and happiness of the event.
