Wondering what to wear to the big wedding? what are the best hats at wedding? Top off your look with the perfect hat in my article!

The good news is if you have to attend a wedding that requires you wearing a hat, there are thousands of styles to pick from, from traditional hats, dainty fascinators and embellished headbands. Inspiration can come from the catwalks (head and hair accessories in general are set to be seriously huge for SS19) or from some of our favourite female Royals, who, as etiquette dictates, must always wear a hat for official engagements.

When wedding bells are in the air, you'll want to look your best, whether it's your own special day, or you find yourself cast as a bridesmaid, groomsman, or simply an honored guest. Weddings tend to be very formal occasions that call for the utmost in style and tastefulness. Wearing a hat to a wedding is an effortless way to give your formalwear an immediate upgrade. Today, we’ll talk about the best hats for weddings and what styles will be best suited to the occasion.

Tip 1. Fedora Hats

A fedora is a style of hat that features a pinch near the front and a shallow indented crown. It also has a round brim that is typically wider than that of a trilby hat. The fedora originated in 1891 after the stage play of the same name and has since grown into a beloved accessory for both women and men.

The fedora is a classic style that is well-suited to pairing with dressier attire. Fedoras make a subtle, yet powerful statement and are perfect for spiffing up your look without worrying about upstaging the bride and groom.

Tip 2. Straw Hats

A straw hat is a brimmed hat that is woven out of straw or straw-like materials from different plants or synthetics. The hat is designed to protect the head from the sun and against heatstroke, but straw hats are also used in fashion as a decorative element or a uniform.

Outdoor weddings have become increasingly popular over the years as couples have become more adventurous in their choice of venue.

Even if you find that hot weather is anticipated for the day of the ceremony, don’t do yourself the disservice of skipping a fashionable hat as part of your ensemble! There are a number of straw and Panama weave hats available in classic styles to keep your style and your body feeling fresh and cool.

Tip 3. Top Hats

A top hat, high hat, cylinder hat or topper is a tall, flat-crowned hat for men traditionally associated with formal wear in Western dress codes, meaning white tie, morning dress or frock coat. The top hat, traditionally of black silk or sometimes grey, came about perhaps inspired by the capotain, and replaced the tricorne associated with the justaucorps tailcoats in Western fashion by the end of 18th century. It has remained a formal fashion accessory ever since. A collapsible variant of a top hat is known as an opera hat.

Tip 4. Royal hats and fascinators

Looking for the perfect wedding hats for ladies? Look no further than the fascinator! Fascinators are not traditional hats, per se, but they are certainly the utmost in elegance when it comes to women’s headwear. A fascinator consists of an elaborate design attached to a comfortable headband or clip. Fascinators traditionally have floral or feather-plumed styles and are a delightfully delicate addition your bridesmaids will love!
