Hat's off

Hat's off

Q. I have a vision of all of my bridesmaids in fabulous hats on our big day. However, I'm worried about the logistics as the only time all of my best girls will be in one place to try them on before the day is for my hen do weekend. Any tips?

A. Katherine Elizabeth says: I adore your idea of bridesmaids in hats – it will indeed look fabulous and create a real sense of occasion. It can be hard to coordinate bridal party shopping trips but perhaps there's a way to kill two birds with one stone. If you're yet to confirm details of your hen party, why not throw a hat-making party?

Get your hens to embrace their inner crafter and immerse themselves in the sumptuous world of fabrics, feathers, millinery techniques and beads to make a fascinator, headpiece or customise a trilby, straw boater or flat cap that you'll be able to wear at the wedding and time and time again. You could even combine it with an afternoon tea, drinks reception or dinner for a fashionista's dream day out.
