A Victorian Wedding
If the 19th century is still too recent, nothing prevents you from taking inspiration from the Victorian and Regency eras to find your top hat! Scala's Mad Hatter top hat, with its non-convex and very high crown, is reminiscent of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, or even the costumes dear to the theatrical world of Dickens' literature.
