Here in Brazil it is not so common to wear a hat for an outdoor wedding, but there is always one or the other reader looking for this glamorous accessory for the wedding look, especially guests.
I imagine that anyone who is looking for a hat to wear for an outdoor wedding must already know the rules of use but it is worth remembering:
- Hat can only be worn at weddings during the day
- Hat should not be worn with a long dress. Worth midi dresses, shorts and even overalls. You just can’t wear a long dress (but there are those who wear it).

Note that in the photos above you can see some of the various hat models that exist. That is, there are numerous options of models, sizes and materials to be able to adapt to your personal style / look chosen for the wedding.
