Hats are making a fashionable comeback in the bridal world, if you're looking to add a unique and stylish twist to your wedding ensemble! 

In this post, we share some tips on how to wear a hat with your plus-size wedding dress to create a stunning and unforgettable look.

Choose a Hat That You Love!

First of all, let’s just say that there are absolutely no rules when it comes to how you want to express yourself! If you love a hat- go for it!

Maybe you want to make a statement, are having a boho or rustic wedding outdoors, or have an heirloom/sentimental piece…it’a all about what you love and are comfortable with.

Match the Hat to Your Dress

Consider the dress's fabric, color, and style when selecting a hat. For a classic, vintage look, opt for a pillbox hat with lace or silk that matches your gown. If you have a more casual, bohemian dress, a floppy hat with natural textures could be perfect.

If you already have the hat before your bridal appointment, don’t forget to bring it with you to try on with differest gowns!

Coordinate with Accessories

Glam up your hat with embellishments! There are no hard rules…popular ways to embellish include using lace, pearls, beads, embroidery, or crystals. If you’re going for a more natural look with a wide-brimmed hat, consider adding a special band or tucking flowers or feathers into the band.

How to Wear Your Hat 

No joke, the angle at which you wear your hat can dramatically impact your appearance. Tilt it slightly to one side or wear it straight on, depending on your style and the hat's design. Experiment with different angles to find what suits you best.

Consider Your Hairstyle 

Your hairstyle plays a significant role when wearing a hat. For example, a low bun or loose waves can work well with a wide-brimmed hat, while an updo can complement a fascinator or pillbox hat. Consult with your hairstylist to create the perfect look for you!

Ensure that your hat is securely fastened and won't easily come loose during your ceremony or reception. This can be done using hairpins or a headband.
