Yes! But then I would say that wouldn’t I?
A wedding is a special day, indeed for the happy couple it’s probably the most important one of their lives so far, and they and their families will have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure everyone enjoys themselves.
So why wouldn’t you go to the extra effort of looking special too? If you have bought a beautiful new outfit, the icing on the cake is a hat or fascinator. Without it, the dress remains just that, a dress, but a hat lifts it to another level and finishes off the outfit.
There are also some events where a hat is obligatory. Most Royal events such as Garden Parties, Investitures, or Royal weddings require hats. You will be given details of the protocol for such occasions.
Another one is Royal Ascot in June each year. There are rules about the dress code for this race meeting so be sure to check, or ask me.
So, whether a wedding, races, collecting an honour – wear a hat!
