I had a tough time putting together an outfit for the official wedding ceremony. I am used to weddings in spring and summer, but I have never had a winter wedding before so I did not have a go-to outfit. Moreover, as the legal witness to the wedding and the matron of honor,  I had to be dressed for the part. I would like to stress the fact that I dress according to the traditions : my outfit would be very different for a jewish wedding, an atheist wedding or a modern wedding.

I absolutely love this hat from Willy’s Paris (1824) : it can be worn in 2 different ways. The most common way is with the flap down, and it becomes a perfect hat for summer. The other way  is to wear it with the flap up, like I did above : as such it can be worn during the winter because there is no sun, which defeats the purpose of shielding from the sun! A hat at Willy’s can be quite expensive but it is an investment.

As an example, below is an outfit for a spring wedding in which I was also the legal witness, this time early spring. Again, it was difficult to put together something appropriate when it is still cold. Basic rules when dressing up for a French christian wedding : always cover your shoulders in the Church, never wear white, off white, cream or any colors remotely close to the bride’s dress’, and do not be sexy.
