Approved By The Wedding Affair: Get Ahead Hats, Rydale & East Yorkshire…
We are back this Wednesday with another new supplier. Eek, we love welcoming new talent to our gorgeous family of approved suppliers! We are super excited to be welcoming Get Ahead Hats back to The Wedding Affair, you may have already caught up with the lovely Jane last Sunday at our luxury show at The Talbot Hotel & their brand new venue, York House. If you joined us on the day you will have being greeted by champagne on ice, canapes and a selection of hugely talented suppliers from the area and beyond. One of those, of course had to be *the most* gorgeous hats and millinery from Get Ahead Hats.
Jane from Get Ahead Hats supplies mother of the bride accessories, race day hats and just about anything in-between for any occasion imaginable. You will find Jane in her boutique in Snainton, near Pickering. If you are from East Yorkshire, or Ryedale, then visiting Jane’s beautiful boutique is a must.
Anyhoo, here is a little more about the business from Jane of Get Ahead Hats.
“Get Ahead Hats is a small but very lively company consisting of 16 showrooms across the UK all based in the countryside, this gives us space and time to create designs and colours in lovely locations for our clients to choose with ease the very hat that compliments their ideas for that special occasion.
Weddings Whether you are Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom or a wedding guest we have a fabulous selection of styles, large picture hats, smaller hats( for the ladies that worry about wearing a hat ) headpieces and fascinators, all available to hire or buy. Always try the hat on with the outfit you are wearing, have fun, experiment with different styles and look at the hat from all angles particularly from the back. You will never know how good you look in a dramatic wide brim until you try one on.
The better weather last summer brought out larger numbers of corporate guests at all meetings across UK but of course Ascot Royal meeting in June was the pinnacle with ladies really going to town in wonderfully stylish and some not so stylish outfits. This year our milliners are working overtime to make it more glorious than ever. At Get Ahead Hats we pride ourselves in giving our customers a unique style that echoes their personality be that classic, charming or really whacky – we love to see the confidence on the face of a lady once she has found, and had fitted correctly, a hat just right for her.
On the subject of size and fitting many ladies are worried about a hat being too big or too small and ‘will it stay on’ is a regular question. Having supplied hats for many events including for the windiest of locations all our milliners are trained to fit and alter hats so the wearer has complete confidence as she steps out on the big occasion.
Get Ahead Hats has had a remarkably successful 2016 nationally and all the omens are in place for an even more exciting 2017. As you will see from our new website our designers have really pulled out all the stops and have created a mix of elegance and sophistication highlighted by glorious colours plus some outstanding contemporary hand-made creations.
Our very diverse clientele, from duchesses to dairymaids, regularly compliment us on the vast selection of styles we have in stock. We have many styles which can be reordered in the colour of your choice if time allows.
Supporting Great Britain The vast majority of Get Ahead Hats are hand-made here in UK embracing traditional millinery skills, using an extensive colour palette mostly in sinnamay with embellishments of feathers, beading and silks sourced from around the world. Each completed hat or headpiece celebrates British craftsmanship of outstanding quality – our small company is proud to have been instrumental in the development of new millinery craft courses and apprenticeships over the past 25 years – producing and encouraging the very best of milliners in our industry
