Finding the perfect hat for your western-themed wedding is a fun, creative, and individual experience and process. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite hat companies in the Rocky Mountain Region that are top-notch in their craft.
Many hat companies prefer that you meet them in person to design your hat for your big day. Meeting in person ensures that the fit and style are perfect for you and what you’re dreaming of! The creative process can take anywhere from 3 months to a year, so if you’re creating a custom hat make sure you inquire far enough in advance! It’s also an option to purchase ready-to-wear hats from many of these companies so do your research and ask questions.
