Beach Weddings: Style + Sun Protection = Sun Hats

Sun Hats & Beach Weddings

Sun Hats & Beach Weddings on Polyvore

A Beach Wedding, what a dream!  The scenery, the sound of the waves, the sultry air, and the gathering of loved ones for a beautiful event: bliss.  But don’t let the Beach Wedding’s most dominant guest – The Sun – spoil the day.  Everyone present should protect themselves from the sun; its discomfort and harmful rays.  Looking fabulous at a beach wedding is also crucial, so how do you wrap style and sun protection in one gorgeous package?  With a sun hat!  

For the Bride
Instead of a traditional veil, the bride can don a luxurious sun hat.  Wearing white?  Coordinate with a beautiful white hat.  Stardust is white with a hint of sparkle.  A gold detail brings elegance to a white hat, such as Nexis’ gold trim or Portofino’s chain.  For a more playful vibe, try a Bimini ribbon hat in white, or a Forget-Me-Not with its natural trim and flower embellishment.
The bride could also go ultra-glamorous with an ultra-wide brim.  Morgana is a dramatic picture hat with a 6” brim and white and gold stripes.   Belladonna is a stunner in gold with a 7” brim. 

For the Bridesmaids
Play up your wedding colors with coordinating sun hats for your bridesmaids.  Chloe comes in several colors, including royal blue, black and red.  For some sparkle, look to Nauru in gorgeous turquoise or black.  Jackie G’s trendy fedora shape brings a playful attitude with several color options such as pink and gold.  Going with the beautiful Radiant Orchid color trend this Spring?  Try a fun cloche style Brixby in raspberry or a spirited Sammy D fedora in lilac. 

For the Guests
This is your guests’ opportunity to wear the glamorous sun hat of their dreams.  Beautiful Infinity goes colorful in pinks or blues.  Another colorful showstopper is MalibuBelle has 1940’s glamour with the comfort of cotton.  New for this year, Kismet’s white stripes in white/gold or black/gold would be perfectly stylish.  Bimini’s wide color selection and fun ribbon construction has something for everyone.

All of these hats look great, no question.  But high style is not all they bring to the (wedding) party!  They’re all packable, meaning you can easily stow them in your luggage.  And when you’re heading out for a day trip, beach walk or to lounge by the pool, just throw the hat in your beach or pool bag.  Most importantly, these hats take their job of sun protection seriously.  They are all rated 50+ UPF, meaning they block out nearly all of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.  Your face and eyes will be shielded from the sun so you can enjoy that amazing beach wedding.
