A wedding is a very special day for every mother and you're going to need the perfect hat. Do Mothers of the Bride and Groom need to wear a hat? The answer is, of course, yes! At The Hattery I am here to guide you with my expertise with a stunning range of headwear and if you do not want to wear a hat, why, there is the most incredible creation - the hatinator! Hatinators are worn like a fascinator, but look like a classic hat. Sassy and exciting, they are worn slanting across the right eyebrow, creating an air of mystery whilst looking incredibly chic.
At English weddings the etiquette is that ladies keep their hats on until the Mother of the Bride removes hers, which is normally when the formality of the wedding breakfast is completed, when the coffee is served and gentlemen can remove their jackets.
What do you do when you've removed your millinery masterpiece? You are still a very important guest - why not hire or buy a fabulous little fascinator to carry on the celebration into the evening?
Shoes, bag and hat do not need to match as long as your whole outfit coordinates; two out of the three can match, but this is the beauty of bringing your outfit along to The Hattery, we get to play with the colours to achieve the most stunning effect of elegance and glamour!
If there is one person who can pull off a hat it's the Mother of the Bride and as second to the bride (sorry Grooms!) the mothers outfit is as much as under the watchful eye of the guests as the brides - so no pressure Mum's. Here at The Hattery I am here to find you the hat that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Many are concerned that they will look overdressed, but this can never be the case. Your hat does not need to match the colour of your outfit exactly but you should choose a colour that tones well and that will bring the whole look together.
It's not very often that you get the chance to wear a hat - so absolutely go for it. Here are some of my own hats causing a stir as part of Mother's of the Brides special days......
