Gem's Wedding Supplies offers hair fascinators in a range of colours and styles. These fascinators are the perfect hair accessory for weddings, events and racewear.
Although fascinators have been around for quite some time, they were thrust into the forefront of fashion after the royal wedding in 2011. Guests at the nuptials of Prince William and Duchess Catherine donned their fascinators for the event and it caused a worldwide stir! Everyone was talking about the fascinator again, especially the one worn by Princess Beatrice, whose fascinator was the talk of every media outlet from Joan Rivers “Fashion Police” to the New York Times.
What’s a fascinator and why are they so popular now? Originally a fine lacy head covering, now it is used as an alternative to a hat for formal attire. A fascinator is usually embellished with anything from feathers to beading. They can be attached to your head with a clip, comb or headband and vary in size from large to small. Some fascinators are extremely ornate while others are more understated and elegant. You can find them everywhere from weddings to horse racing events especially the Melbourne Cup. Fascinators can showcase your personality without breaking the dress code of a formal event. It’s the perfect accessory!
Fascinators are also becoming more popular in bridal fashions as well. For formal weddings, guests and bridal party members may choose to wear them in lieu of a hat. A fascinator can take a formal suit or dress and transform it to something fabulous just by slipping it on. Some brides are also choosing a fascinator instead of a veil. Not every bride wants to wear and carry around a veil all day. Even if you prefer to wear a veil for the ceremony, you can also use a fascinator at the reception. We currently feature a white fascinator with birdcage netting in our shop, which is a great veil alternative for any bride.
