That hat (definitely not an advent photo!)

Some more wedding photos have popped up on various Facebook pages including me and That Hat


I can't wear a fascinator - hair to short! So it has to be a hat. The hat came off eBay (£5) it was navy and cream- the colours I wanted and looked OK but had a HUGE papery flowery thing on the side which was silly. I took that off, then the hat was too boring, so I fished about in my ribbons and bow box and stuck this bow thing on. I thought it looked much too daft to wear but went with it. Everyone assured me it looked very suitable for a wedding but I think they were just being kind!

And our son looking super-douper slim - he lost 2 stone for the wedding!

I think that's all for wedding photos.


I'm running out of ideas for Advent photos and there are still 8 days to go so I may be back tomorrow or not.

  1. Beautiful hat. I can't wear hats or fascinators as they make my head it for some reason.

  2. hope you're back tomorrow. The hat looks just the ticket and your look great :) I have a HUGE head lol, so I can't wear hats like this. My horse riding hat drowns even my hubby.....rather embarrassingly. Great photos and it looks like it's been a brilliant day

  4. I only wear a hat when gardening to keep away the sun and bugs but I do like to see ladies in hats. They look so sophisticated. You look lovely in yours.

  5. You look just as stylish as Queen Elizabeth or Kate Middleton in your lovely hat. And what a bargain! I don't know why we don't wear hats here in America. I think that hats add so much to an outfit.

    Your son looks very handsome.

  7. I love your hat, and the 'bow thing' stuck on it! What a great description!
    Your son needs to share his diet tips, two stone, that's pretty good going!

    Thanks for your comment today. that post made me nervous, though reading back, I don't really know why.
    Oh the comments. Back in the summer. Firstly telling me how I should have reacted to the way Violet had been treated at school. Written in such a stupid manner they clearly hadn't read my words properly, and obviously not a parent themselves. The second was criticising - and expecting me to answer - why Violet had left learning to ride a bike 'so late'! The fact that she'd made up her mind, got a new bike, and determined to learn in days was lost on them. Anonymous of course. So yeah, I'm going to answer to some clown like that!!! There were a few others too, but I delete and ignore, but these are the ones that really stick in my mind.

  8. The hat looks great! There seems to be less and less of them at weddings now. You look very smart sitting there in your outfits!

  12. You look fab. I think the hat suits you. Your son is a handsome chap - to be honest he very much resembles my middle son - if you saw a photo I'm sure you'd agree. Talk, dark and handsome! Well built with a big bushy beard.

  13. Lovely to see the photos of the wedding. Your son did well to lose 2 stone for the wedding. Your hat looks great!

  14. I think you look lovely! I remember when hats were always worn at church and weddings here in the U.S., but it's been a long time since anyone did that. The last hat I wore was when I was about 12 and I'm 60 now!

  15. You lok smashing in that hat. I like to wear hats if I can find one that's big enough for my head. My head is biggger than my husband's head. Men around here where mostly baseball style hats or cowboy hats. I like knitted hats in the winter. My daughter and DIL like hats. Handsome son you have. I pray he and his wife have a wonderful life together.

  16. I can assure you Sue that you look absolutely super in that hat (and as I have seen you in person, I can vouch for the fact that the photograph is a true likeness).

  22. Hi Sue, sorry late again (having cuddles with youngest grandson on days off) so have only just read this. I wore a navy 'proper' hat for step-sons wedding a couple of years ago. I was the only one with a hat, and felt very self conscious but I did think it looked ok!
