Mad Hatters

  |   By Nicole Keen

What’s the hottest bridal accessory in Europe? Hats in all shapes and sizes are taking the aisle by storm. Just yesterday I was speaking to a bride who is planning on wearing an elegant chapeau to her upcoming wedding in France.

And Jenn, who was recently on WB business in Bordeaux, spotted trendy toppers in several haute bridal boutiques. A hat may be something to consider if you're not a veil kind of girl. Hats are charmingly old-fashioned, hearkening back to a more glamorous era, and convey a sense of romance and mystery. As you can see, they've had a strong showing on the couture catwalks and bridal runways.

You tell me, is this trend a do or a don't? Would you wear a hat for your big day, or would it be too much of a threat to your hair? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
