Love wide brimmed hats? I adored designing each and every one you see here. Did you know the picture hat is the most classic for daytime formals and that definitely includes a wedding? Typically constructed out of straw or horsehair, these elegant hats are sometimes swathed in netting and organza. Picture hats can be so much fun too--they conjure up images of croquet parties at Jay Gatsby’s and all those 1930s movies situated in garden party chic. Whatever look you want to create with this style, here are a few things to consider when wearing it. Go ahead and put on your picture hat for the ceremony. Just do yourself a favor at the reception and take it off when you’re receiving guests. Unless your hat is made out of that bendy sort of horsehair with lots of give, when you reach out to hug and kiss people the hat will either fall off or scrape someone. Picture hats go great with most silhouettes, especially ball gowns. The wide brim balances the volume in the skirt.
