    I think they’re part of the outfit, so leave them on.

    It wouldn’t be rude or improper at all.  I take it you’re not having a church wedding (that’s the only place where I think it might be improper to wear a hat??).  But if the hat is part of the outfit, and your fiance wants to wear the hat, wear it the whole time!  Anyone who side-eyes that would be very stuck up.

    Here in the USA, if a cowboy considers himself a gentleman, he tips his hat or takes it off when he sees/meets a lady. If he is outside then he will put it back on, inside he can leave it off or put it back on.

    Now this is his cowboy hat if it is his ballcap then we have a whole nother story!! Wink

    I feel like if they’re left on, they may be more of a focus than you and your soon to be husband. I know if I was watching a romantic ceremony and a cowboy hat kept getting in between the man and the woman, I’d sure be paying a lot more attention to it!
