Hats are considered as an element of elegance, which bring grace to one’s style. Married women are usually more concerned about the type of the hat they wear, and thus they spend a considerable time in buying one for themselves.
However, a hat for mother of the bride has to be a unique piece that needs to be purchased carefully.
Following is a brief, but useful, guide for buying an appropriate hat:
Do not just pick your hat haphazardly, but consider how it may look on the mother of the bride. Like clothing, hats too are person specific and not all styles suit everybody. Apart from considering the style and comfort, you must look at the length and height of your chosen hat.
For a taller woman hats with wider brims are more suitable, while the same may not suit a shorter woman. Thus make sure that you buy a hat intelligently!
All hats are usually enhanced by adding feathers, flowers, and other similar items to make the hat look more attractive. While you buy a hat for the mother of the bride, make sure that the items match the personality of the bride’s mother. Add flowers of her choice and even choose colours that will please her.
Additionally, it must never be ignored that the amount of these items also matches the personality of the bride’s mother; too much of flowers, or too less of them just may not please her!
Don’t forget Etiquettes
It is a universally accepted norm that the mother of the bride should wear hats that are larger than that of the groom’s mother. This is indirectly a sign of respect for the bride’s mother, who has to outshine all. Thus, do consider the groom’s mother’s hat before you buy one for the mother of the bride!
