Our girl Kate Middleton loves hats and fascinators, and I hope it’s a trend that catches on – hats with the sole purpose of adding a little fun to your head!

 

How about a little fabulous for the bride?

I am so wearing hats to weddings from now on. Maybe something a little bit wild…

    I absolutely ADORE hats, own several, and wear them whenever an opportunity presents itself.

    However, perhaps it’s just a U.S.A. thing, but two summers ago, I wore a hat to a wedding and the bride’s mother asked me to remove. =/ She said it looked like my ensemble was competing with the bride’s headpiece. I’m chalking it up to her being a total jerk. I haven’t ever read or heard anything in MIss Manners that said hats at weddings were inappropriate.

    Anyhoo – yes to more hats!!!!

    I am completely over the moon for fascinators, and I can’t wait until I have a wedding or two (or some other excuse) to wear one at! I just love the black-feathered fascinator Kate is wearing in the lower right-hand picture. I really hope they take off in America post-royal wedding!

    These are all so fun and stylish! I wish that wearing hats was popular in the states! If it were I would definitely have a large collection :) Check out my blog for some Vera Wang wedding inspiration!

    Life is too short to worry about what others think – Be bold, be brave, do what makes you feel good! Don’t worry about it being trendy or popular. I always suggest starting off with a small flower, and as time goes by start wearing larger and bolder headpieces.

    If you simply can’t resist donning a huge hat, hold a High Tea Hat party.

    Long live hats!

    I’m in. I love these! I’ll TOTALLY wear a hat to the next wedding if you will. Now, all we need is somebody else to get married!

    Being from Scotland, I wouldn’t be seen dead without a hat at a wedding. Which ended up looking a bit odd at my American cousin’s wedding in Chicago 2 years ago when I was the only person wearing a huge hat. No one there seemed to understand why I was wearing one.

    I am so excited about this and truly hope it takes off. I think I might have to start wearing them to weddings to see if I can help add to this trend. So much fun!!

    I desperately want to be a hat person! Maybe I should move to England and work on honing that skill…
