Summer wedding - hat, fascinator or good blow dry?
I went to one a couple of weeks ago. Out of about 150 guests there were 2 hats, about 4 fascinators and 144 bare heads. I prefer hats to fascinators myself but do agree that hat hair is a problem. I'd rather go bareheaded than wear a fascinator, was bareheaded at my own wedding.
The weddings I've been to recently have been more hatted than bare.
The important thing is that if you decide to wear something on your head, that it looks as if it really is meant to be there. Clips or wispy insubstantial fascinators usually look like an indecisive afterthought. A hat or a more substantial fascinator always look better.
Hatted or fascinatored Meditrina? I only seem to go to about one a year now, so not so up to date. Agree that anything you wear must look as though it's part of the outfit, rather than a fascinator or hair accessory that you've put on because it's a wedding.
I do like a nice hat myself, fascinators are very tricky to get right IMO, I feel over decorated in them myself (well, I've never worn one, but tried them in shops).
