    My fiance started losing his hair young and is extremely self conscious about it. He wears a baseball hat everywhere.  It's his wedding too and I want him to be comfortable, so I think he should wear a hat.  He's not comfortable without a hat, but he's worried that wearing a hat will look stupid because he hasn't heard of anyone else wearing a hat.


    It's a small, casual wedding on the beach in Hawaii.  There are only 13 guests and they're mainly my family.  I'm wearing a fitted chiffon wedding dress, the groom will be wearing khaki pants and an ivory Hawaiian shirt and the guests will be wearing sundresses and Hawaiian shirts.  Some of the male guests will probably wear straw hats.


    I've ordered a few straw hats online and he hasn't liked them.  I'm running out of ideas and it's stressful for both of us.  Has anyone ever seen a groom wear a hat at a wedding?  Any suggestions for types of hats?

      I think there are plenty of BDW grooms who have worn hats for their ceremony. When my hubby & I were talking about what we were wearing he knew that he was wearing a hat because thats his style.


      The most important thing is for your FI to be comfortable. Instead of looking for a hat that looks like it'll fit the ceremony per say, try looking for a hat that will compliment what he is wearing. KWIM?

      It doesn't have to be a straw hat. Have you gone to your local department stores to see what they have.

      Or just google "mens hats". I just did that & saw this site that has tons of different styles:




      Good luck!

        Funny, after I posted my response, I saw this add on the side of my BDW screen:

            I have seena few grooms sporting fedoras. that might work! My fiance is bald and I think he looks great.. He's had time to get over it though as he started losing it very young. I think he would look wierd with hair!
