Mother Of The Bride

Mother Of The Bride

For any mum, the wedding of a daughter is one of the happiest days of their life and is the perfect opportunity to wear an occasion headpiece. If you are feeling intrigued about the possibility of wearing a headpiece to this special day, set on wearing a hat, or even just a little curious then the advice below may help make this process easier for you!

As Mother of the Bride you deserve to feel confident and look your best. Ailish McElroy Milliner can help you achieve this and provide that finishing touch to make your outfit extra special so that you are free to have fun and enjoy the day.

You will be in plenty of the wedding photos and will also be meeting and greeting all of the wedding guests. With this in mind, you should pick a hat that doesn’t hide your facial features or cast shadows across your face. It is notoriously difficult to socially kiss while wearing a wide-brimmed hat! Practicalities are important, as you’ll be wearing your hat all day so it needs to be comfortable, well-fitted and light to wear.

The process of choosing a headpiece doesn’t need to be daunting. A good Milliner will guide and advise you about hats, ease you in gently and give you the confidence to feel fantastic in them. If you are feeling a little nervous about the number of options out there, make An Appointment With Ailish for some advice and a good try on session which can make all the difference, and be a rather enjoyable activity.

My studio has a wide variety of styles and I encourage all of my clients to try on plenty of different styles to see what suits them best. What looks good on one person may not on another, so really keep in mind your own preferences when making this decision. Ailish McElroy Milliner offers a selection of Hats for Hire or made Bespoke for the individual.

And above all look after your hat before and after the wedding! A special hat can last a lifetime and come in useful for many an event. So, invest in a hat box to ensure your hat stays in good condition by protecting it in tissue paper, with plenty of room around any detailing in a hat box.
