Oh this has been done to death on MN. It is widely thought on MN that fascinators are Naff with a capital N but I think it mainly applies to the feathery ones.
Does it match or complement your dress/outfit? Do you feel comfortable in it? Wear what you like. I wore a mini hat fascinator thing with loosely curled hair for a wedding last year and didn't feel self conscious or naff.
I think them being naff depends on what they are worn with. If one will compliment your outfit then go for it. I only think they are naff when they clash with or overpower what clothes someone's wearing
They may be 'out' fashionwise, but going to a friends wedding who doesn't give a stuff about what's 'in' or 'out' but just wants everyone to look lovely & dressed up, I would happily wear one if it looks right with the outfit.
In 5, 10, 20 years when she looks at her wedding photos who's going to remember if fascinators were in or out this year?
Though obviously, it depends on the friends & the wedding, & hats & other hair accessories will look just as lovely & if it makes you happy to wear what's in this year then there's nowt wrong with that.
