Hat Rental for a Wedding or The Races

A few readers have been asking about what to wear to a wedding so I thought I’d share an outfit I wore to a summer wedding last weekend.

I’m a huge fan of hats for the races, having worn Martha Lynn, Aisling Ahern and Fiona Mangan to races in the past. We have so many brilliant milliners in Ireland so it’s great to know that you can also rent their hats as well as buying them. So I decided to rent a hat from Frock n Fabulous for this wedding.

They’ve got hats by their own in-house hat maker, Fiona Mangan, Aisling Ahern, Sarah McGahon, Edel Staunton and Jennifer Wrynne.

If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram you’ll know that I couldn’t decide which Aisling Ahern hat to choose and you gave me your vote. Votes were even, so I went for this one, which I figured might be easier to transport on the plane to London!

Hat rentals cost from €60 for a 3 day rental. I’ve written about them before here.

Here’s what I wore to a summer wedding last weekend. This would also work as an outfit for the races.
