    I love the tiara, it's gorgeous (can I be cheeky and ask where you got it?) I think flowers would be great for the beach but as you're getting married in monastery gardens I vote tiara image

    You look absolutely gorgeous! Your tiara in pic 1 is lovely! x

    You look fab, and definatly dont look old!! Another vote for the tiara.

  • I am a 37 year old bride too and can sympathise with your wobbles. And then I saw your pics - you are stunning and do not look like mutton. Promise! I like both styles so I would say it depends on the dress and style you are aiming for. I think the flower would look great with a floaty dress for instance but if you are going for something more structured then the tiara. I think you can carry both looks though - you lucky thing!

    As a fellow 37 year old I can empathise with the age-appropriate worry but stop worrying you look amazing and fresh-faced. Cow! Only kidding, I love the flower but if you marry somewhere hot it might wilt very quickly, tiara is great prefer those two to the clip to be honest. When's the big day?

    You look fresh faced and very youthful. I would have put you at 30 at the very most.

    You look lovely, very pretty and natural.

    You look gorgeous and hair is lovely, very feminine!

    Another vote for the tiara (if you were getting married abroad I'd have gone for the flower) x
  • daisylozdaisyloz Posts: 3,109
    NO you are def not too old ....you look fab in the tiara and love the hair in that too x
  • omg really confused now tiara or flowers and mrscarney2b the tiara was from a local wedding shop on sale £10 but took it to pieces and rearanged it on the side(see im never happy lol) thanks for all the replys feelin a bit more lamb now lol and thanks for all the 37 year olds replys guess were all in the same boat lol.

    mrsneno2b, gettin married 30th sept but fly out on 22nd sept for Rhodes the flowers a silk orchid off ebay only cost me £3.50 but it does look quite real doesnt it, thats why its so hard im indecisive at the best of times and have to have everything just right!lol

    still not sure think gonna ask h2b but dont want him to see it lol x

    i think they both look lovely, what is your dres like?
  • you look gorgeous!! I think the flower is lovely but as a compromise you could wear the tiara for the service / day do then the flower in the evening for the party!!

  • TheNemoTheNemo Posts: 929
    Mrs PK2b has a very good idea. It all depends on your dress really. If it's a floaty, hippyish ethereal dress then the flower is perfect. If its a more structured look with beading or crystals then the tiara is perfect. Or you can do both at different times of the day,,,have your cake and eat it....

    you look 10 years younger and your hair looks so beautiful
  • You look fabulous (speaking from someone who is 41!!!)!!!

    I personally love the orchid - it does look real... and certainly won't wiltimage

    I think perhaps the tiara as well as the diamante clip (which I really like) may be a bit over kill.

    ..but as with everything wedding, it is the overall look that matters and whether it suits the decor & venue... (I'm so choosing things I never thought I'd like!)

    I nearly got talked into a dress that was 'ideal for the more mature bride' but just made me look fat & frumpy!!! LOL
  • Sorry - too old?

    You look 21.

    Loving the hair too
  • olisseolisse Posts: 1,280
    You definitely don't look too old. The only problem might be the curls wilting in the heat, I'm guessing it'll still be pretty hot in Greece. I vote for the flower, but then I'm not really a tiara girl.

    I was expecting someone ancient! 37 is young! And you look young too. Congratulations!

    Think the photos look great. Why not have the flower for the day/ceremony, and then change to the tiara for the evening.

    I had a birdcage veil and a tiara, didn't want to wear them at the same time, so I had the birdcage veil for the ceremony and afternoon, and then the sidespray tiara for the supper/evening.
