A Mother of the Bride Hat - A Special Bespoke Hat Commission

Updated: Feb 11, 2022

Weddings have long been a classic opportunity to wear a fabulous hat, and this is certainly the case for the mothers of those getting married. It's the perfect excuse to have a bespoke hat or fascinator made just for you.

But what happens when the mother of the bride (or groom) thinks that just hats don't suit them? Or indeed, when they are not someone who naturally gets all glammed up?

Well, this was the exact thing that occurred when I got married. My mum isn't the dressy type, being happier in casual loose tops and trousers than a dress and heels. I could probably count the number of times that I've seen her with a full a face of make up. However, as the mother of the bride she found a dress she loved, and figured she best have a hat to suit - especially as her daughter is a milliner!

I was thrilled to have the chance to make some bespoke headwear for my mum. As she was travelling from Australia to the UK for our Kent wedding at Little Hermitage, I had to wait until fairly close to the big day to get started.
