1.a lightweight, decorative head covering worn by women on formal occasions
Fascinators are simply fabulous hair pieces that make a wonderful addition to your bridal look.
They are also a fabulous accessory for bridesmaids,
and even the littlest member of your bridal party!
The word fascinator originally referred to a lacy head covering (think shawl) made from wool or lace but mostly made of feathers. Fascinators were worn in place of hats at formal occasions. Nowadays it’s a much broader spectrum of shapes, sizes, and materials that can be part of your fascinator.
Many brides opt for lace or feathers, and wear it in lieu of a wedding veil, or combine it to accent a birdcage veil. Popular materials include feathers, flowers, and beads. Fascinators can be attached to your hair by a comb, headband, or clip.
