Hats don’t only complete the look, but they can really help a bride stand out from the crowd. A bridal hat can add a touch of style and class to your outfit, or some flamboyant fun or a vintage-y feel to the wedding.
Did you know, that women were not allowed to expose their hair until the 1950s? Therefore, hats are part of the protocol for every royal wedding.
Now lets face the most difficult, but fun part – picking the right hat!
Not to worry, The Hat Circle team have already done the hard work for you. All you have to do is pick one from the very best ones.
Hatinator - The term 'hatinator' emerged in the early 2010s which is used to describe a headgear that combines the features of a hat and a fascinator. It is popularly worn by Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. So, go ahead and pick your favourite hatinator if you are a fan of Catherine’s style.
Pillbox Hat - If you want to be a vintage inspired bride, then a pill box hat is the right pick for you. A pillbox with a simple veil or lace trimmings, what could be more romantic than this on your wedding day?!
Straw Frayed Hat – Who doesn’t love big straw hats? Especially when it’s a summer wedding, by the beach! A Straw hat would look just perfect on a sunny wedding day in Spain or Bali. When the sun goes down, you can switch your straw hat for a pretty floral crown.
Fedora – Ever thought of planning a wedding up in the mountains? We imagine it would be beautiful and adventurous. And a Fedora to go with it, would be a perfect hat to match the mountain theme. But if you’re not a fan of the idea of being an adventurous bride, then a chic fedora for a countryside wedding would be also delightfully mind blowing.
The last but not the least is a Fascinator. These pretty pieces are lightweight and sized between a small veil and a hat. It’s less formal, less bulky and can be affixed with a hair pin or hairband and usually comes with some fabulously ornate decorations. And, the best thing is that the bridesmaids can wear them, too.
Until next time,
The Hat Circle
