Buying wedding accessories online might seem like a scary business, since colours are not always accurately shown on websites. I recently ordered a pink dress online, and instead of it being pale pink as I thought, it was a much darker dusky pink – how disappointing!
So, if you want to match your hat or fascinator to the dress you have bought for a wedding/race day/special occasion, you don’t want to risk ordering something which is the wrong shade.
It’s a dilemma we are used to here at Simply Devine, and the solution is easy. Just buy a bobbin of cotton or a skein of embroidery silk in the same shade as your outfit and send it to us! Most supermarkets have a display at the end of an aisle with sewing cotton if you can’t get to a haberdashery or a shop which sells trimmings.
Let us know what part you will be playing at the event (mother of the bride/groom), grandma, guest, race day outing, and if you can also show us a photograph of the dress/outfit, so much the better. Let us know your hair colour and if you are petite or not. Owner Liz Devine-Wright has been dressing special occasion guests for more than 16 years and has a fabulous eye for colour, so the more information you can provide, the better match we can supply.
If we don’t have anything in stock which will match or complement your outfit, we can always make one to match or contrast – providing you give us enough notice (usually 3-4 months).
Here at Simply Devine, we pride ourselves on customer service, and will do all that we can to ensure you look a million dollars for your special event. Our customers come from far and wide – and we have shipped hats off to Africa, Australia, Dubai and the United States.
We know that most of our customers will only buy a handful of hats in their lifetime – as their children get married or have grandchildren christened or have naming ceremonies, so we want them to get the very best! Of course, we do have some lovely loyal customers who are regular race-goers, and they love to see our new stock which is designed by us each year. We even have customers who buy the hat first and then find an outfit to match, which is just fabulous!
So don’t be afraid to browse our stock online in the current circumstances – we will do all that we can to help you get what you want for that special day.
