Making Your Mark with Wedding Hats
The focus of any wedding day undoubtedly falls on the bride and the groom. However, that is not to say that guests should not make their mark on the day with their own personal fashions. Wedding hats help top any woman’s outfit and add style and class to a lady’s ensemble. Whether they be demure and neutral toned, or colourful and brash, wedding hats serve to provide the ultimate fashion statement that lets other guests know that the woman takes pride and pleasure in her appearance at social events.
In fact, a wedding hat may also indicate the woman’s status at the ceremony. Mums typically wear hats that match their outfits in colour and style. Mothers do not want to detract from their son’s or daughter’s special moment and may thus wear accessories that do not call attention to themselves. Likewise, people who have special roles in the ceremony, such as cantors, lectors, or guest book attendees, may also wear wedding hats that are reseerved in colour and style. They also may want to blend into the bridal party’s appearance and keep the focus on the couple, rather than themselves.
However, friends of the bridal party may opt to wear more celebratory choices and wear wedding hats that invoke happiness and humour. Friends may realise that they do not have to adhere to the stricter fashion choices that family members and ceremony participants must. They can demonstrate their own joy in the day by wearing hats that appear to be whimsical, fun, and colourful. While their hats might bring the stares and wonder of other guests, their accessories might signal to their friends being married that they are joining in a symbolic way with their happiness and enthusiasm. A friend may not bother to coordinate her wedding hat with her outfit. Rather, she might choose a hat that makes her feel confident in attending the event and shows her friends at the altar that she eagerly awaits the post-ceremoney festivities.
With that, choosing the best headgear to wear to such an event can be quite fun. Women may take considerable time and effort to find the right hat to wear with their wedding clothes. Many choose to shop at their local merchants, although just as many increasingly shop online to find unique styles and choices. Still others wear hats that have been in their families for a number of years.
