The most important item for a wedding …besides the outfit is the Hair accessories. For an event such as this (i.e a Royal Wedding), it is generally advisable to wear a hat or fascinator.

Thoughts: I love, love, love, love the display of hats at the royal wedding!! Key trends seem to be floral details, netting, wide brims and structural designs…not too many feathers this time. The majority choose matching head to toe colour scheme for their hats while some choose hats that had colour accents of their outfits.
Which are you favourite hats?? I love Princess Maxima of the Netherlands’s unusual shape, Victoria Beckham’s gorgeous jewelled details, the netting on Marina Fogle’s hat, Sophie, Countess of Wessex’s combination of flowers and feathers, Princess Letizia’s old fashion hat that matched perfectly with her outfit and Lady Amelia Spencer’s combination of flowers and structural design.
