Weddings

Welcome to Floating Hat Events

Floating Hat Events is an event management company which specializes in the creation of celebrations that are unique, personalized, elegant and affordable.

Weddings are meant to be a joyous occasion in which you share your love for each other in the presence of your family and friends. But this magical, life-affirming special day can be preceded by a series of emotional, overwhelming, stressful and/or chaotic days, weeks or even months.
