Admission, I’m shopping for summer hats to lounge daily on my deck. But that doesn’t mean these hats aren’t ALSO perfect for your wedding or elopement. (Especially of the cottagecore persuasion…)

In fact, I’d argue that most of my wardrobe shopping is inspired by all of you brides anyway. Once a bride, always a bride (am I the only one who wants to be a bride forever?)

Okay, anyway, back to hats. Christina and I have a wee little obsession with brides in hats & general “cottagecore” wedding style.

What in the world is cottagecore? I think this styled shoot will visually explain it well – imagine cool-girl-meets-French-countryside. Which is basically what I’m forever aspiring to be!

So while we may be donning these hats for our future wedding flower gardens (growing loads of Dahlias to spoil you lovelies with more IGTV DIY Wedding Flower Tutorials) we think you should definitely add one (or two, or three) of these hats to your spring or summer bridal ensemble. Eloping or doing the whole shebang, I think your wedding weekend deserves an extra trendy accessory – if only to aid in your bridal skincare routine!
