    How in the world did some of the ladies at the royal wedding keep their hats on? They were on the front of their heads or hanging off the side. They must have been glued to their hair or something. (and WHAT were some of them thinking when they picked them out??)

    Some of them looked like they were attatched to a head band and yes some of them were very different looking.

    No kidding. If I were Kate and my friends and family showed up at my wedding with those goofy hats I would be upset. Guests at a wedding are not supposed to upstage (is that the word) the bride. It was tasteless. It was a wedding not a costume party! I just saw a little of some of the wedding clips, so I probably missed some of the hats.

    Combs.

    And the whole idea is to fascinate, hence the name "Fascinators." ;-)

    And I don't think they upstaged the wedding party at all.

    Kate has worn numerous Fascinators.

    Plus hats have a totally different rep in the UK than here in the US.

    Fergie's daughters had the worse looking hats. The blue and the beige.

    Hats were required inside the abbey for respect.
