Bohemian bridal hats are a big new favorite. More and more women want a natural and whimsical look for their wedding. Big hats with a veil or flowers can add an extra touch of the unique. A big cowboy hat or garden hat covered with tulle can also achieve the same feel paired with a boho style sheathe dress.
