What You Need To Know About Wedding Hats

March 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 163

Wedding hats should be worn with grace and elegance. It is important to know the right etiquette when wearing hats to special occasions. If you are thinking about wearing a hat to an event, here are some points you need to know:

Wedding Hat Etiquette

Hats are usually removed at the reception. If you are unsure about when to take it off, take your lead from the Mother of the Bride. When she removes hers, you and the other guests should follow.

This may be unfair, but traditionally, hats are acceptable even when indoors when it comes to women only. Men should always take theirs off once they go indoors.

Headpieces are not considered as hats, so they may be worn throughout the event, whether indoors or outdoors.

If you're attending a ceremony, make sure that you do not block the view of the people behind you. If your hat is too big and would inevitably block their view, make sure that you apologize. Or better yet, move to another seat.

Handling Your Wedding Hats Well

If you want to extend their life, make sure to handle them properly. They can be worn to many events, so it is best that you take care of them.

Avoid picking up a hat by the edge of the brim or the trim, as it is not the strongest part of the hat. Instead, hold them where the brim meets the crown.

If the hat's brim gets slightly bent, you can usually have it gently coaxed back into shape.

If your hat is adorned with delicate beadwork, veil and other jewels, make sure that it does not get wet.

Remember to store your hat in a dry place. When purchasing one, the store usually gives you a hatbox where you can store your hat for future use. Make sure that you store your in an area with low humidity. High levels of humidity may cause them to deform, depending on their fabrics and quality.

Perhaps, the most important thing to know about wedding hats is to wear them well. The front of the hat should come to your mid-forehead, as this great angle complements the face better. Tilting the hat or wearing it on a slight angle makes you look more chic and feminine. If your hat comes with elastic, make sure that it goes under your hair and not under your chin.
