So during a recent visit to Scotland I had the privilege of attending a traditional Scottish wedding. A few weeks before we left, my sister in law posted on my wall asking if I wanted her to make me a hat or fascinator to wear to the wedding. My stomach kind of dropped as I have never been one to enjoy wearing hats....I just can't seem to pull them off. Knowing how super-cool my sister in law was I knew that whatever she sorted out for me would be awesome so I decided I would live life on the wild side and wear whatever she made for me. Funny how hats are so common place in Britain but I have never really seen anyone wear a hat to a wedding in Canada.
Anyway, as we were getting all prettied up for the wedding, my sis in-law said she was going to bring out the hats and fascinators that she had made for all of us girls to wear. Well.....my jaw just about hit the ground when I saw what she had made. They were so amazing and creative and just beautiful. Here are a few of the ones she made for our other family members..........
Even my baby girl rocked a fascinator (not for very long though!)
Honestly, I had no idea that people wore such cool creations to weddings. It's almost as if the hat or fascinator is more important than your outfit. My sister in-law said that some people will even pay just as much for them as they do for their actual dress. So here is the super awesome one she made for me......
So needless to say, when we got to the wedding I was so interested in what everyone was wearing in their hair that I became somewhat of a paparazzi snapping sneaky shots of everyone's hair accessories. Excuse the camera work.....it's not easy to take sneaky shots....lol.
So here are some shots of some of the guests and their fabulous fascinators...............
Now......let's start a FASCINATOR MOVEMENT in Canada............it's just so fun to rock a fascinator!! Here are a few random pics.....just because......everyone loves a wedding!
