Hat for boho bride

Mariah, on April 22, 2021 at 10:49 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 7

My wedding dress is the one with the shoulders showing and open back. I think I want to wear a hat similar to the girl in the third pic. Any thoughts on wearing a hat? Pros or cons? I don’t want to lean in for our kiss and bump each other or bump my hat off LOL

Also wondering what you all think about jewelry to go with my boho style dress?

    As someone who frequently wears hats and has a collection of them, I was also on the fence. Decided against wearing one but it was a close call. I picked a specific hairstyle and veil combo that just wouldn't work with a hat so...eh.



    As for the hat falling off with kisses, there are a few ways to avoid that. One is to put one hand on the hat (crown or brim) while you kiss so it doesn't fall off I'd it gets dislodged. The other way is to set the hat further back on your head so the brim is angled up in the front, that way minimizing the likelihood you SO will hit when kissing you. Depends on the type of hat and personal preference.

    As for jewelry, I would go with a statement necklace and possibly dangling earrings as well. You could go full glam and sparkles or something more artsy like turquoise.

    Hats are cute! However I wouldn’t wear it the entire time or during the ceremony, maybe for some photos and during cocktail hour / reception. Plus hats darken your face for photos so keep that in mind 😉

    As politely as possible... brides should no wear hats! I think it would look ridiculous. Hats are for casual events, not weddings.

    My mom wore a hat for her wedding! It looked nice but it does make the face look darker in photos. If you decide to wear a hat, I recommend gluing or sewing hair combs onto the sides so it doesn't blow off in the wind or get bumped off when you kiss.

    This is the hat I purchased for my wedding. My wedding isn’t until July, so I can’t give you a first hand account, but I will be wearing it up and to the side - so will be avoiding any kissing or lighting issues! lol

    There are all kinds of wedding hat styles out there - if you are interested, I bet you can find something out there you like. And if you get something and it doesn’t work, you still have a hat you can wear whenever!

    I think this is a personal style choice -- definitely not for everyone, but if it's you, then go for it. I agree I wouldn't expect this look at a more formal wedding, and I absolutely agree about the potential for the hat to create all kinds of shadows in photos. If you go this route, I would definitely talk with your photographer about it ahead of time so they are aware of potential lighting issues that they'll need to anticipate and/or correct for. (I taught public speaking for decades and we recorded students' speeches. I NEVER allowed them to wear hats with a brim because the top half of their face disappeared from the audiences' view and the video.)
