Bridal hats: the hottest accessory trend this season?

Elaborate headbands and statement veils may have been the wedding accessories of the moment during summer. But with the weather turning chillier, you may be looking for more coverage if you’re planning to tie the knot this autumn or winter.

One trend that’s making quite the impact this autumn and winter is the bridal hat. This accessory is no longer reserved for the mother of the bride, here’s why.

Save your chic bridal hairstyle

Marrying during the autumn and winter months comes with perks. For all the beauty the cooler seasons have to offer, there are a few challenges that brides and grooms looking to celebrate in style have to contend with. One of the worst and most unpredictable? Bad weather.

Autumn winds and winter showers can wreak havoc with your wedding and, more specifically, your bridal look. But with the right accessories, you can embrace the season’s worst weather and overcome all wedding disasters.

Your bridal hat will provide all the coverage you need to keep your chic wedding hairstyle intact. Throw in a pretty umbrella and some colourful wellies, and you’re pretty much prepared for anything!

Change up your wedding look

You don’t have to splash out on two dresses to change up your bridal style throughout your wedding day. You can add something different and memorable to your bridal look by mixing and matching your big day accessories as Brides recommends:

“First of all, there’s a time and a place to wear such a hat, and we think that time is during the pre or post-ceremony portraits! Why? That’s the time to experiment with your look in a way that you won’t regret years from now. Also, who wants straw in their face as they’re reciting teary-eyed vows?”

Make a super stylish statement

Bridal hats are as non-traditional as you can get, but as they become more and more popular there’s an increasing number of styles to choose from. Brides getting back to nature on their wedding day will look great in a flower-adorned wide-brimmed hat. Feather embellishment is also big news on the bridal hat circuit, while brides looking for a simpler take on the wide brim can add texture with a classic straw style.

Those searching for a sleeker look or a style that gives a nostalgic nod to the past will love a felt, pillbox bridal hat. Some bridal hat designs also incorporate a veil – so you can have the best of both looks for your wedding ceremony.

Whatever your desired bridal hat style, be sure to choose a look that channels your unique personality, not forgetting to complement your venue and wider wedding theme.
