HATTINI – a great gift or accessory for the uber-chic bride and bridal party

My friend Maddy just passed on one of her fashion secrets to me. Her friend Marga is the creator of Hattini, a company devoted to designing headpieces (similar to fascinators) for “well-furnished heads.” Marga custom makes each individual hat so there is love and attention in each unique piece.

I have just had a look at the designs and they are pretty spectacular and would make great gifts for your fashionable bridesmaids. Plus, they are pretty wedding-budget friendly.

Whether you like the blue butterfly, a flower made of netting, or an exotic white orchid, there are styles to suite all different tastes. If you are going for a vintage inspired wedding, why not pair a satin cocktail dress for your bridesmaids with one of these outstanding headpieces?

Or if you are going for a short dress yourself or a beach wedding, there are definitely a few choices that are bridal worthy and could be a cute alternative to a traditional veil…but then I would recommend giving the headpieces as a gift to your bridesmaids so that your style stands out.

  1. I was recently at a wedding where the bride wore a white lace hattini and she looked absolutely stunning in it. Big fan here!

  2. Cocktail hats and headpieces are not only great for weddings and formal occassions but they can be the accessory that highlights your whole outfit on a night out. The Hattini brand has produced a range of headpieces so diverse that regardless of the type of event there is always going to be a style that compliments your look; day or night.

  3. Love the article! Thank you so much... I wanted also to point out that the new trend for brides in Spain is to wear the classic veil during the ceremony and then change into a cocktail hat for the celebration. I think it's a great idea and it's worth giving it a thought!
