15 Mother of The Bride Hairstyles With A Hat or Fascinator

The mother of the bride can be said to be the most important person after the couple, and the hairstyle is unavoidably a make-or-break factor in one’s wedding guest attire. Some mother-of-the-bride hairstyles use the timeless and sophisticated fascinator or hat as the focal point.

1. Beach Blue Mother Of The Bride Wedding Hat

If your daughter’s wedding is outdoors or on the beach on a hot summer’s day or at the beginning of spring, this bright blue straw hat is a beautifully bright yet casual look.

It looks especially pleasing on short hair like bobs or boy cuts since it almost compensates for a shorter length of hair or fine hair. If you want, you can throw in a final tropical hair flower as a finishing touch!

2. Blue Feather Fascinator Wedding Hairstyle

Blue is a statement color as it instantly lifts a neutral outfit and looks particularly dazzling in contrast to the wedding white or creamy beige colors. 

3. Black Woven Hat With Flowers
