A Fascinator for a Wedding

Updated on September 7, 2014

What a happy day that was in February 2011, when My daughter was married. I had chosen a beige fascinator very similar to the one pictured here (see below for the photo of me and mine.). I was the only one wearing a hat for the occasion. I have always loved hats. I was brought up in a little country hamlet in Devon, England and always wore a hat to chapel services from the earliest days.

My daughter and I spent a happy afternoon choosing a fascinator for me in Exeter. My outfit was green so the fascinator needed to be a neutral colour and I chose beige. It had a transparent part that came down over the right eye and had thin tall feathers standing up by about 6". I was delighted with the purchase. I could not wear it in the car on the way to the ceremony as the feathers bent against the car roof. I kept it on the front seat and put it on when leaving the car.

I was proud to wear it as mother of the bride. It did not phase me that I was the only one with a hat.. These fascinators are so light and delicate and lift your outfit where a full hat might, perhaps be a little heavy. You can see me below wearing mine.

The only problem I have with my fascinator is, what to do with it now. It's sits in my wardrobe waiting for me to find another day to give it an outing. I would dearly like to wear it again. It was light and comfortable on the head, kept in place with an Alice band. I wanted to wear it when I became an accredited Local Preacher, but it seemed a bit frivolous so I missed that opportunity.

You will find plently of choice on Amazon and I hope you have fun wearing yours at whatever occasion you choose.
