Put a Bow on It!

This charming silver bow fascinator would work on guests, mothers of the bride and groom, or a bride with a more modern and casual style. While this style might not pair well with a formal princess wedding dress, it would go well with a tailored dress for a courthouse wedding or a retro a-line.

A Subtle Veil Alternative

Bridal fascinators are fashionable options for brides that don't want to wear a traditional veil. This petite birdcage option is unmistakably "bridal" but still tucks easily into an updo.

Add Some Pretty Color

Were you considering a colored wedding dress, but decided to go with classic white? A pretty veiled fascinator like this one is a lovely way to incorporate just a smidgen of color. We love the gray hue in these blush feathers. It's so demure that you could also pair this with a gray or pale blue dress without it being too overpowering.

A Big Statement

Not all bridal fascinators are so subtle. Some of them pack an impactful punch. This extravagantly feathered fascinator in white is definitely a statement piece and would best complement a structured, modern gown.

What's a Fascinator?

So, what exactly is a fascinator? Running the gamut between large clips to very small hats, fascinators also come in a wide variety of styles. Most popular in the UK, fascinators are also used in the South, where more traditional moms and wedding guests have adopted them. This cream-colored wool fascinator could work well for a city hall bride or for a mother of the bride in a suit.

Something Sophisticated

Will you be wearing a golden wedding dress? Whether you or your bridesmaids decide to wear something metallic and glowing, a modern fascinator like this one is a fitting accessory. Glamorous enough to pair with the slinkiest of Art Deco dresses, it can serve as your main accessory.

Classic Fascinators

Wedding guests and mothers of the bride or groom will love the formality of a classic fascinator. This black option can be worn again to an equally special occasion, and the brim will help keep the sun out of your eyes as you go from the ceremony to the reception venue.

Very Cheerful

Looking for a peppy wedding guest accessory? A wide-brimmed hat in a juicy summer hue could be just the solution! Just remember that you don't want to hinder the other guests' view of the festivities, so either sit towards the rear or on the sides or simply remove your hat for the ceremony.

Vintage Glam

As a bride or guest, you might feel that a fascinator or hat isn't really your style. But you still want to wear something "special" for the occasion. Consider a turban-inspired headband. These darling accessories were a favorite of the Golden Age starlets of Hollywood.
