    I actually really like the hat idea, have you checked ebay?

    I looked through a few pages on ebay and there are all sorts of bridal hats.. not sure if you would be interested in any of those.

    @Eckle:  I think this is a great idea and I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the first hair inspiration picture you posted. I think it would suit you because it would give you volume at the sides rather than on top, which would work with your oval face shape. I also like the hats perched on the side of the models’ heads, c’est tres chic 🙂

    Although I really love the 1940s style, black hat with the ivory flowers that you posted, I have to be honest and say that I am not as much of a fan of the white hats you posted.  Part of it is the shape of the hats, but I also think part of what I don’t like is the starkness of the white.

    I’m thinking that I would prefer a hat that is not so bright — perhaps one that is a champagne or blush colored instead? You could still have white or ivory flowers on it to match your dress.

    YES!!! This is better! Love seeing the pics of you smiling, too! I love the black hat, and the hairstyle right above it. I agree with the PP about not doing white though.

    @Eckle:  =( I had a reply with about 5 links that you might like, but I accidentally exited out and lost them. Poop.

    Here’s one that I had still up though. Its in black, but it says she’ll customize them, so maybe she can make one in white for you.

    I dont know if this is the style you’re looking for. It might be too big. But I think it would look nice if you put some lace on it.

    I’ve been lurking your threads and I have to say I LOVE this idea! I think it would be perfect for you. I think you should keep searching for the perfect hat though. The 1940s one you posted is amazing.

    @Eckle:  I’m not sure about peach (I lived through peach bridesmaids dresses in the 1980s and 1990s. 🙂  However, I think something that is a medium-toned, neutral that would go well with your hair would be best.

    ETA:  What do you think of this? I know it’s technically not a “hat,” but I think it’s beautiful:

    i love the hat idea. to me it sounds best to DIY. i would pick color based on what looks best with your hair–maybe buy a few swatches of fabric to see. ivory would be beautiful with your haircolor–peach i’m not sure and i’m having trouble picturing it.

    I think you should avoid any heavy headwear and just go with a sparkly hair pin! And for the record, you look better without a hat, your hair is gorgeous and you look like Amy Adams. Own it!
