    It’s not my style personally, but it sounds like it’s something you really want/your style and look you’re going for. If I had to choose, I like the third one 🙂

    I voted no, but then I tried to think of it with your boots and bustle and at the reception. It depends on your personality and that of your guests. Most people will find it weird, but not everyone will. I can kinda see it in the right kind of atmosphere.

    @dewingedpixie: what color are your bridesmaid dresses? Maybe the black ones for them, and a statement fascinator for you?

    I love the idea! If that’s your style and personality, and my guess is it totally is given the boots and details you mentioned, then it will look awesome. I voted the ivory one, so it will still look bridal 🙂

    @dewingedpixie:  Yes! Because it’s about you and I have a feeling your friends and family won’t even blink an eye. They know you, your style, your FI. Do it and take amazing, unique photos!

    @dewingedpixie:  I think it’ll look amazing! 😀 Don’t worry about the poll results. Especially if this is your signature style. It’s your day and this is totally a fabulous way to personalize it. I voted for the ivory 🙂 Are you doing a veil for the ceremony? I wore a veil for our ceremony, then switched to a fascinator (just a flower with feathers, not nearly as cool as a top hat) for the reception. What colour are your bridesmaids wearing? Maybe you can wear an ivory fascinator and  they can wear matching ones in purple or black?

    I found the Bee to be pretty anti-hat. I like the wedding hat idea, but I would personally get a smaller top hat fascinator than the ones you posted. I plan to wear a wedding hat. I’m currently trying to decide between replicating this one in ivory

    or buying this one who’s lace matches my dress pretty well.

    @dewingedpixie:  It fits with your personality, so why not! It’s great when the couple really infuses their personalities in to their wedding. I voted black with purple- looking forward to weding pics:)

    I love hats and fascinators for weddings, but I don’t love the top hat, personally.
