    I don’t think it’s necessarily offensive, but I find it a little odd to wear a hat indoors??  Maybe he can just wear it for a few pictures and the reception rather than at the ceremony if it’s going to cause waves?

    IMO, it’s a bit much to wear during a wedding ceremony, of any sort.  Could he just wear it afterwards?

    Sorry, but, I’m a Christian, and if I went to a wedding and the groom wore that (granted, I don’t know the groom in this situation and if I was going to the wedding I probably would!) but I would find the hat…creepy…at the very least. (a skull in the middle of a cross?)

    I agree with SapphireSun, I don’t think he should wear it indoors.

    I think its fine, it is so small, he probably won’t even notice. I didn’t notice it until after I read your post, when I just looked at the photo I didn’t see it.

    It’s not offensive but it may be inappropriate for the ceremony. What about just putting it on for the reception? and pictures?

    Yeah, I still say not offensive, but I think to wear that ON YOUR WEDDING DAY, you’d have to really feel like it was an expression of who you are, not just like a random accessory.  It’s definitely a statement piece, and these pictures will be what you look back on for years.  I have to say that has definite “what was I thinking?” potential.

    I don’t find the hat itself offensive. I am one of those particular people who find it odd to wear a hat indoors at a wedding ceremony, however.

    I thought it was rude / bad etiquette / un-gentleman-like to wear a hat indoors period. At least that’s what I’ve seen / heard from family that live down south.

    Honestly, I barely noticed the skull… However I agree with pp’s and wearing a hat indoors for your wedding feels a bit innapropriate. IF he wants to wear a hat indoors for the ceremony I say keep it simple and unremarkable (a simple palm leaf would do) and change into that hat for the reception and some pictures.

    I wouldn’t say it’s offensive but I don’t think I’d be okay with my future spouse wearing something like that on our wedding day.  There are so many other choices of hats and I would prefer no hats in doors.
