What Are Some Common Bridal Hat Styles?

Posted on

There are many different bridal hat styles that are great for weddings and receptions, whether you’re a guest or a bride. Here are some of the more popular and common styles that you can use to bring elegance and glamor to your next wedding attendance.

Bow Fascinator Hats

A simple fascinator hat bow looks great on guests, brides, or other attendees, with a casual and modern style. It’s not the most complement for formal wedding dresses, but it does work well with tailored dresses and retro a-lines.

Subtle Veils

Rather than wear an actual full-length wedding veil, consider a fashionable fascinator veil as an alternative. There are many options that are more petite while still remaining unmistakably “bridal” in their appearance.

Adding Subtle Color

If you decided to go with a white wedding dress, nothing says you can’t add a little color to it to make it stand out. Consider a veiled fascinator with a gray hue or blush feathers, which can pair with pale blue or gray dresses in addition to white, while remaining subtle.

Go Big

If you’re one to show off instead of staying subtle, there are plenty of fascinator options that can stand out. Fascinators with extravagant feathers, for instance, are popular among those who want to maintain elegance while making their presence known.

Sophisticated Look

You may be considering a colorful wedding dress, and gold is a popular option. With dresses like these, you can incorporate a unique look with a metallic and showy modern fascinator hat as an accessory.

Classic Fascinators

In need of a more formal bridal accessory? Consider a classic black fascinator, which is a great option for not only weddings, but also for a wide range of other types of events. The brim on a classic fascinator can also help keep the sun out of your eyes when outside, making it great for outdoor wedding events.

Sinamay Hats

Sinamay, a stiff, woven silk material, is often used to form an original look for wedding hats. Sinamay hats are compatible with nearly any type of dress, but are especially appealing at garden weddings.

Wide-Brimmed Hats

For a peppier option, consider a wide-brimmed hat with a colorful hue that might be exactly what you’re looking for as an accessory at your next wedding event. However, those who wear these colorful, loud hats are better off sitting toward the rear of the crowd to avoid obscuring other guests’ view.

Vintage Look

Maybe a fascinator or hat isn’t something you’re looking for, but you still want to look fashionable for a special occasion. In these cases, you may want to wear a turban-inspired vintage headband, which was popular among Hollywood stars in the Golden Age.

While there are plenty of other bridal hat styles to choose from to help you look your best at your next big wedding event or other occasion, these are among the most common styles that are sure to impress. Gold Coast Couture carries many of these styles to give you the look you want, with enough unique designs and color options available to match any personality.
