A quick Google search reveals that
1) Kentucky Derby hats are the size of UFOs
2) They are best worn with sundresses or linen suits,
3) It's hard not to look matronly in a huge hat unless you're British, and
4) All the best Hats are made in the UK. When we threw off the yoke of monarchy, we also lots a fair bit of our style.
I quickly concluded that I would not be purchasing a full-on Kentucky Derby hat that would get worn once and gather dust in the closet. Maybe a fascinator is the way to go, but the ivory one I wore nearly a year ago screams wedding.
I turned to my best friend Etsy, which did not disappoint...... For brides who embrace color, some of these could be fun.
The closest thing I found stateside was this lovely from Pegasusmaiden.
