As many of you may already know, I am getting married in June. With a Summer wedding comes a Summer bachelorette party and a Summer honeymoon. One thing I MUST have when in the sun is a big brimmed hat to protect myself from the sun (and of course to look cute in!). I’m absolutely loving the big floppy sunhat trend happening this season. Seeing all these fabulous hats inspired me to get a customized hat with my future name on it.
I looked high and low to find a place that creates these amazing hats. As often happens, my search led me to Etsy. I spent a couple of days deciding which Etsy shop had the exact style I liked, and which shop I felt could make my vision come to life. In the end, I decided to purchase my hat from Panmilli. The hats in this shop are outstanding and can be custom ordered with a variety of options (from size, sequin color, hat color, etc).
I chose to order the ivory colored hat with a 5 inch brim and Pom pom ribbon. I think the craziest thing was how quickly my order arrived! I ordered way early, anticipating it to take a while, however my hat arrived at my doorstop only a couple weeks later. I have to say, the quality of this hat is amazing. I can tell that so much thought and craftsmanship went into creating my custom hat. I was also impressed with the packaging to make sure my hat arrived in good condition.
This hat is possibly one of my favorite things ever, and something I will treasure forever! For now, it is hanging on the wall in my office because it is much too beautiful to be tucked away until the Summer. I just love looking at it daily and dreaming of the memories to be made in it with my future hubby!
