Bridal Shower Fashion Inspiration: Hats

Its no secret the wedding of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge put the spotlight on fabulous hats and fascinators. However I am here to keep it real, fabulous hats and fascinators are nothing new, hats have been prominent in the African American community for as long as I can remember. There are not many Sunday's that I can't recall seeing my Grandmother going to church in a beautiful "Church Hat". Being from the south hats are a staple in the community whether its a "church hat" or for the Kentucky Derby.

I would love to style a wedding that request guests to wear their hats to the ceremony, how fabulous would that be? Another fabulous way to rock a "church hat" or fascinator would be a bridal shower high tea soiree. Requesting that guests come dressed in their Sunday best or chic attire including gloves & fans. Oh be still my little southern heart.

Be inspired by "church hats"!!

Wow, this is absolutely amazing for bridal shower parties! :D The girls will definitely love it if this idea is to be incorporated with the event. I particularly like the red one in the last photo.

Love this post! It's funny because I'm from the south as well and my grandmother wears her "church hat" faithfully every Sunday!
