Wedding season is most definitely upon us.
I say this with confidence as walking through town on Saturday night involved navigating large groups of girls in matching neon leg warmers and boys in matching T Shirts. Once the Hen and Stag parties are out the wedding invitations start flooding in.
Whilst a hat is the traditional option for a wedding, something like a fascinator is an increasingly popular choice for wedding guests. Plus you can keep it in all night and you won’t feel like a muppet dancing in a hat at midnight because you have hat hair.
Fascinators can be so much more than a bunch of feathers stuck to a hairband. A couple of weeks ago I wore this Cherry trimmed creation to a wedding, but I’ve been off searching for the best of the rest out there on the big wide web. Some big, some bold, and all beautiful.
Pearls & Swine Seductress Fascinator £50 from Lady Lucks Boutique
This is a gorgeous molded felt fascinator with a 1920s feel to it. Wear it with a dropped waist dress and almond toe shoes.
2adorn Eileen Feather Disc Fascinator £33.75 from Cerise UK
Understated, but a bit different, this feels like a very small hat, but made of feathers!
Highlander Pheasant Fascinator £35 from AbiLu Creations
Are you Scottish, or going to a wedding in Scotland? Make it a theme and wear this striking fascinator with little tartan hearts and pheasant feathers.
Vintage 50s Black Cap $55 from Animal Head Vintage
Guarantee no embarrassing duplications and go vintage with an almost a hat fascinator.
Carnation Fascinator £7.99 from Flamingo Amy
Abandon feathers and crystals and adorn your hair with flowers. This one is unusual as it’s carnations. Orchids are another lovely choice.
Helen Bach Rose & Ribbon Beret £15 from Pin Up Parade
Another one with tartan accents, but a bit more girly.
Pearls & Swine All Seeing Eye Fascinator £50 from Lady Lucks Boutique
And finally, if you really want to stand out, they won’t miss you in this one. I, personally, would advise wearing a slightly more covered up outfit to a wedding though. It’s hard to outshine a Woman in a Wedding dress, but nipple pasties are probably one of the guaranteed ways to do it.
Do you have lots of weddings to go to?
Are you a hat or a fascinator girl?
