Often at rehearsal dinners, the bride and groom are given some type of fun hat to wear. Whether it be a crown or in my case a cowboy hat, this is a great time to get creative.
I wanted to share the beautiful hats my mom and sister created for my rehearsal dinner.
They took two basic straw cowboy hats and customized them with trinkets representing different parts of Doctor J and my life. All of the items were glued on with a hot glue gun.
Is that a REAL bagel you may ask? Yes it is! It is an essa-a-bagel from my favorite bagel place in New York. The bagel was shellacked before being glued it on. This was done with a product called shellac that you can buy at at craft store, such as Michael's. All other items were treasures from the past including mardi gras beads and masks, toys from happy meals, buttons, and even a surf board shaped nail file.
Hats off to the wedding hat designers!
