      Greetings all! I am new to the list & was wondering if anyone could
      point in the right direction. I have been looking for a crown for my
      upcoming medieval themed wedding, but as of yet have not been very
      successful. I was wondering if anyone knew of a site or store that
      might be helpfull, or if there is another head wear alternative you
      could suggest.
      Thanks ever so much!

        I found that if you search under crown coronet etc. you can find a lot of fanciful tiaras especially designed for this type of occasion. Jessamyn

              Aye, there's the rub. Have you considered various ways of making your own? Gilded leather, carefully contrived gold lame on buckram frames, bugle beads laid down carefully, very fancy trim.... crownlike things can be made by those who aren't jewelers.

                I don't know what period you are trying to portray, but the bridal
                crowns of 16th century Germany are often pearl encrusted hat
                shapes, generally without points. I thought that one alternative
                might be to purchase the pre wired pearl pieces available in the
                bridal section and carefully apply them to a hat.

                The book, "From the Neck Up" shows photos of a costume shop making
                their own wire frame with beads. I doesn't look too hard, and
                again, you could probably use wired pearls to create something.

                It would be easier if you could tell us what you had in mind and
                what your inspiration/source ideas are?

                  Well...

                  My original "dream" crown was the one from the wedding scene in the
                  Princess Bride. (If this gives you any indication, we aren't exactly
                  going with any particular exact time period. Kind of a conglomeration
                  of things we like. Don't tell the garb police on me!) Because I
                  couldn't really find this in production (go figure) I started to try
                  and make it myself, only in gold. I purchased the silk flowers (which
                  are actually around the crown,not part of it in the movie) and used
                  pre-wired pearl flowers. I also wanted to wire my own beads and
                  pearls for the taller "spikes", but I can't seem to find just the
                  right beads, and it isn't giving me the look I was hoping for. Now
                  that we are down to less than 2 months before the big day, and since
                  I still have to bead my dress, I thought I might try the "purchase
                  the pre-made crown" route again.

                    ok first...deep breaths....

                    I know it sounds like a short time but I planned mine in three months!

                    I am sure you can find the right head piece that you are looking for

                    putting in "pageant crowns" in the search engine

                    here is a nice place I found:

                    http://www.rhinestone-tiarasusa.com/


                    http://www.gigiofparis.com/MM007.ASP?pageno=1204


                    and from the same site although expensive they use SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL

                    http://www.gigiofparis.com/MM007.ASP?pageno=1459


                    and one more

                        Hi Folks,

                        Today we went to ToysRUs, and you know what I found there? A fairly
                        believable plastic crown, adult sized. It was in the Imaginarium
                        section, not the halloween section, cost $6.

                        It's not the usual plastic crown, with large expanses of over-shiny gold
                        plastic. The band has "engraving" on it interspersed with oval jewels,
                        and above the band, fleur-de-lys alternate with a scalloped diamond
                        shape which has jewels on it.

                        Now, I'm not saying it would be great for SCA wear, although if you
                        replaced the cheap plastic jewels with glass, it should pass a 10'
                        eyeball test. However, it might be just the thing for the wedding crown
                        that someone here was looking for.

                          decided to finish the one I started to make. Looked on-line for new
