I wore a hat to SIL's wedding this year because I bought a Hat (with a very definite capital H) for a wedding ten years ago, justified it to myself on the basis that I would wear it to lots of weddings, but had only ever worn it to that first wedding.
Mrs Badger, are that teacher from ladette to lady Thank you, I wish I had more knowledge of etiquette in these situations. It's an early afternoon wedding, very formal reception. I am mid thirties but short and love the idea of adding height
At our wedding last year we had a handful of Women Of A Certain Age wearing hats, including my mum. We did not have a Church wedding sadly as that fell through, but it was a nice place called The Great Barn. A few younger women wore fascinators but the most went without and I was a little disappointed. I love hats so if any of my mates ever get around to getting hitched I will relish hat shopping! At the very least I would wear a fascinator.
The Hat is pretty wide and fairly swirly, but its claim to the status of Hat is largely dependent on being an extremely bright shade of electric/royal blue. At SIL's wedding complete strangers (OK, one complete stranger. But that's one more than normally stops me in the street at a wedding) stopped me in the street to comment on it...
