    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.

    Yup, I'm with the others. There was no disrespect there...in fact, it's a way to honor the new bride because she's a fan of "the fascinators".

    I had no idea about this until I saw it on yahoo. And while I couldn't pull one off, I secretly kinda want one now. :D

    When I was growing up, we were required to cover our heads in church (Episcopal). I had the cutest hats and elaborate veils. Duel purpose-It was for respect and you really couldn't have a bad hair day when it was covered. I miss those hat days as my hair gets thinner................

    I loved the hats ... and I don't think anything could have upstaged this bride. She was gorgeous and what a sweet, sweet fairy tale wedding it was.

    I love the hats, but could not get away with wearing one of those in the Arkansas Ozarks. Step outside in one of those and guys around here would start shootin, thinking a new bird was in town.

    This is as close as I can get to the hats. Tried this mask on in Pier One oneday.

    Pam, Thanks for the chuckle! I love hats but we just don't wear them in the states much, do we?

    I wear one to church every Sudnay-I love them, but it's hard to find nice ones at a reasonable price, anymore.

    I find some nice ones at JC Penney - you just have to 'stalk' the store for selections. :)

    I love hats, have 27 of them, would love to go to England to shop for a hat. Have a Huge one made by someone trained by a Paris Modiste and yes I have worn it to church, get some stares but oh the liberation of being older (who cares!!) America has lost such fashion sense by not enjoying wearing hats. I love seeing hats on other ladies. Sure adds a touch of class.

    PT made a huge number of the hats that were worn at the wedding. He's like the Christian Louboutin of hats.

    Check out the gallery for some fabulously outrageous creations.

    And don't forget the British LOVE to show off hats at the Ascot races:

    I wore a hat that I beaded and veiled in my wedding in '84. Kept it on with bobby pins and combs and loved it!!!

    I stand corrected by you and many others. I'm just glad I wasn't sitting behind one of them. I'll have to google "fascinators".

    I read a funny quote the other day. I can't find the link now - it was a blog(?) linked to a UK paper.

    To paraphrase:
    You're right to fabulous fashion only exists as far your neighbor's line of vision.

    I thought it was hysterical.
    So if you're going to a play, leave it at home ;-)

    Thanks for the links. Fascinators, huh? Well it is fascinating. I just have to channel my old Granny and say--"if everyone else were jumping of a cliff, would you do it too?" :):)
