@BeckyS0:  I say to go with a fascinator.  Lots of Etsy sellers make them at different price points.  I think a bright pink one would make the flowers in your dress pop.

What kind of budget are you looking at?  Etsy has a lot if you search “derby hat”.  The price ranges from about $50 to over $300 depending on how intricate the hat is.  I would probably look for a yellow hat with some flowers to go for best co-ordinated.

If you’re trying to coordinate with the dress, I’d go with a bell shape to mimick the dress.You could get a base that was yellow, white or black and then add color accents with flowers, ribbon, feathers, beading, etc.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s! In fact, that specific hat is what popped into my mind because it’s so iconic! I have a red one at home that I wore to the Kentucky Derby years ago. It’s actually a pretty flattering shape for most people.
