Royal Wedding , and "The Hats"
Original post made by Paul Losch on Apr 30, 2011
The thing that got me was the hats the women guests wore. What I see women and girls in this country wear are ball caps with a pony tail pulled in the back of the cap. Not good wedding attire, even as a guest.
Why don't women wear hats in the States like we saw in the UK at this wedding?

Hats are a big tradition in the UK. The first thing an English lady thinks when she receives a wedding invitation is "oh I must get a hat". Because of this, hats are readily available to buy in every department store and village shop. You can also go to London and have a milliner design one for you if you have the means. Hats, especially affordable ones, are hard to find in the US and even trickier to find one appropriate for a wedding. I shopped far and wide for a hat to wear to a British wedding once. It was nearly impossible to find a hat that was not a ball cap, sun hat or hiking hat but I finally found a simple blue one to match my dress. However I had the plainest hat there and it was slightly squashed during the trip too.

Oh dear, Gentlemen.
These are not hats, they are called fascinators. And everyone knows that one should not wear trousers to a church wedding unless one is male.
