Wear a crown and look like the queen that you are! You can wear a flower tiara if it is for your pre-wedding ceremony. You can wear a jewelled one for your engagement or wedding ceremony. But this will cramp your style if you are wearing a shawl over your head. So you will have to choose something different for the actual wedding ceremony.
