Wedding Style Guide: How to wear a hat to a wedding

Whether you are the mother of the bride or groom, the bride herself or just a guest wanting to make a statement, here is our guide to wearing hats to a wedding. The points listed below are just a guide, but ultimately we would always suggest you wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.

1. Hat etiquette/positioning
Ladies hats are traditionally worn on the right as dictated by old etiquette where the lady would wear her hat on the right, while her gentleman partner would wear his sword to the left, balancing each other out.

Our new designs for this year includes two flower range. Both types of hats are in our 'Chelsea Flower' collection.

This hat is available to buy from our Etsy shop, Adrienne Henry Millinery.

We are very excited about launching our Ladies Silk Turban range soon.

Having worked on three as a starting point we were extremely happy when the very first one we made was bought this week. It was not even completed, we had a couple of hours to make the lining and sew it securely inside.

Originally I wanted to make turbans for every day wear for ladies who have hair loss due to alopecia or ladies who are going through chemo therapy and like wise have lost their hair or their hair has started to regrow. These would not have been as suitable for special occasions but our new designs are perfect to wear both during the day and evenings.

The lady who bought the ivory silk turban was very please as it complimented her Edwardian outfit. Whilst we thought there would be an interest in the turbans I did not think there would be a demand with ladies who are followers of Jane Austen. It was a very welcome piece of information.

These ladies take dressing up in the correct Edwardian style very …
