How to wear a boater hat on your wedding day...

Updated: Mar 10, 2020

Coco Chanel was a fan of wearing a boater hat in the early 1920s and its versatility over the years has grown. Would you consider one as an alternative to a veil, flowers or bejewelled headpiece?

Coupled with a vintage cotton wedding dress, a boater hat looks dashing and quintessentially darling. Here's some inspiration for being a little bit different on your big day when it comes to memorable 'headgear'.

Styled here with a 1980s Laura Ashley wedding dress, it feels as if the two items are meant to be together - both are made from natural matter after all.

What works really well here is the small hand-tie of flowers - they are stunning without being overbearing and of course, one of my favourite looks too - boots!

So, if a boater hat has got you jumping for joy, go for it and dare to be different!
