Wedding hats have been around for ages; a wedding ceremony had always been elaborate, elegant and a sophisticated function. Trends have widely changed these days and many people go for a casual style wedding or even a funky one. However no one is stopping you to go for the same rich and elegant look and one way of doing that is by adorning beautiful wedding hats.

If you are the bride then there is a large variety of bride’s hats available at online and offline wedding stores. These hats give a really nice touch to the wedding dress of the bride; usually the bride would have a veil on her head that is either attached to a clip or a band with which it is fixed on the head. The wedding hat that has a short veil attached to it will give a really unique touch to the whole ensemble and would add a lot more gracefulness.

It is not necessary for the bride alone to wear a wedding hat; important members of her family, too, can go for a sophisticated and aristocratic look. Usually the people who like wearing a wedding hat are the mother of the bride, maid of honor, bride’s sisters, groom’s sisters and of course groom’s mother. But again there is no hard and fast rule as to who can and cannot wear a wedding hat; anyone can do it.

In fact if you are the bride and want to make things interesting at your wedding, you can mention wedding hats as part of the dress code on the wedding invitations. This alone will help in creating a theme for the wedding.

Wedding hats are commonly available at wedding stores where you can get all sorts of things related to wedding like wedding favor ideas, china and table décor items. You can also of course buy them from clothing stores and if you are not ready to spend a lot on an elaborate wedding hat, then go for a simple one and there are tons of things that you can do to it to not only make it look unique and original but also to make it look exquisite. For example buy a simple plain colored hat that goes with your dress; then get hold of a beautiful lace, ribbon or piece of chiffon to tie around it in the form of a bow. You may also add a brooch or lace flowers; you can choose to adorn it with the help of wooden beads or stones too.

If your town or city does not carry a large collection of hats, then don’t fret; simply check out the huge collection of wedding hats online and you are sure to find something you can fall in love with.

The day of the wedding is undoubtedly the most important day of anyone’s life. And because of the outstanding significance that it holds, it also asks for similar protocol. As the day nears, a concentrated list of chores and tasks usually start to mount on the bride and the groom. However since in most customs it is the bride’s family which is organizing the big wedding reception, the main heap of the responsibility lies on the bride and her family.

But traditions have changed further on with the passage of time and we see less of the whole family gathering up to arrange the wedding of their beloved people. These days it is usually the bride along with her friends who arrange the wedding and the parents on both sides are merely informed of the date and venue.

However sticking to the topic, we are going to talk about planning the wedding. The most organized and fool proof way of arranging a proper wedding reception where everything is in place, is by jotting down the tasks to be completed in the form of a checklist well ahead of time. Sure, you must be thinking we have heard about the checklist a dozen times. But that is only because it really is the best way to follow if you want everything to fall into place on the day of the wedding. It is also the best technique of planning a wedding without taking stress on your mind.

One thing that you should keep in mind is that a real checklist should be activated some two months before the big day. The whole point of having a checklist is that you have ample time to assign different tasks to different friends and family members while keeping the time-taking duties and tasks such as booking the photographer and the wedding venue in the top ranks of the checklist so that you can make sure everything gets completed in time, you get married at the place you always wanted and one of the best professional wedding photographer is free to capture those unique moments.

Like most people, you must have also chosen the best season to get married and again, like a big percentage of people, you are going to pick one of the hottest wedding venues in town; therefore amongst all the statistics and the probabilities, you are going to be left with a very few choices. If you don’t want this to happen to you then you should take the lead, and if a wedding is eminent in the next few months, then it is best to talk it over with your partner as soon as you get a relaxing moment with him.
