My wedding cloche: The lucky last-minute find

Although I knew I wanted to wear a veil for the ceremony, since early in the planning stage I had been interested in wearing a 1920s-style cloche hat for the reception. I had even had a eBay seller make me a 1920s-style had. Although the hat was very cute, I was thrilled when we found a honest-to-goodness 1920s cloche at the last minute... and it matched.

My mom found the cloche quite literally the day before the wedding, at a flea market right around the corner from the bed and breakfast we were staying at. It was an astonishingly perfect match for the dress. I wore the cloche for some of the pictures taken before the ceremony, and then again for the reception. I got tons of compliments on it, too!

Enough said -- the pictures will do the rest of the talking:

Lovely!! I love your short flapper hair, but the hat completes the look! And you can really pull it off well. =]

Drisana, thank you! I agree, the hat was exactly what I needed to complete the look. It was meant to be! :o)

You look absolutely stunning. I love that cloche hat, the colour is so natural and suits your hair colour and the dress perfectly.

Thank you, Lesley! It was amazing how great it looked with the dress, considering it was total luck that we found it!
