Fashion Friday: Modern Wedding Fascinators

We love wedding traditions, and one of our favourite British ones is the fascinator. As with many traditions, however, as they age they can tend to get a bit stale. Many modern brides and wedding guests are ditching the fascinator altogether – but we don’t think this time-honored tradition should die!

To do our part to save the fascinator, we’ve put together a collection of some of our favourite modern wedding fascinators (and close cousins), for brides and wedding guests alike. Happy Fashion Friday!

While these cover a range of styles and tastes, they all share some common elements: unexpectedness in design, simplicity, and a tasteful amount of volume. These all allow you to partake in the fascinator tradition without making national news. Jewelled hair pins or clips are also a great way to add a little something extra to your hairstyle if you don’t feel daring enough to sport a full fascinator.

What do you think? Would these fascinators convince you to get with tradition? Or do you still plan to avoid them? Let us know by leaving a comment, or via Twitter (@WestWeddingsMag). If you have some of your own to share, build your own pinboard on Pinterest or Polyvore and share them with us. We would love to feature it on the blog!
