Hats from the Royal Wedding

I know everyone is probably sick of hearing about the royal wedding already....but I came into it late as I was too busy most of last week to keep up with it, so I decided to go ahead with a little post. :)

I'll try not to go on about the lovliest of dresses.....or the fairytale-ish-ness of the pictures from the ceremony.

But - the hats worn by the wedding guests were simply amazing. Some cute or classy, some perfectly pretty, and some downright ridiculous. I had to keep blinking to realize these were pictures from now-a-days, and not from a movie or a wedding in the 1900s.....they were all so....well, so British I guess.  
I have no clue who most of these people are, but I thought it would be fun to have a little gallery of wedding hat pictures!
I hope the milliners in England are taking a vacation right now. They deserve one. :-)

Which are your favorites??

Isn't her whole outfit scrumptious?? Reminds me of Edwardian/20s dresses...

Then of course we have Cinderella herself, in the most gorgeous wedding dress ev-er.


But....wait....what would a Cinderella story be without two evil stepsisters???

Yep. They were there too. Love it.

Did you realize the girl in blue, in the first photo is the actress of the grown-up Susan in "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"? (I didn't figure that out.... someone else pointed it out to me.)

It *is* hard to imagine that people still wear awesome hats like these somewhere! :D

I really like #'s 1, 5, 6, 7. Any of the smaller. More fasinator type of things are pretty nice. I do love Carole Middleton's hat tho so classic.

Lol...The evil step sister's. :D So funny. :D I don't mind Princess Euginie's (sp?) hat so much, but Beatrice's on the other hand. Oh my goodness. :S I love her coat tho. I'm huge coat junky so I was really living in the moment. :D Never-the-less she was in extra in The Young Victoria which is awesome so I guess I shouldn't be to harsh. :D

I like the first one a lot. You are right, some of them are hilarious! I am not sure if I have ever commented, but I have been following your blog for months. I love your creations!

So many bizarre and incredible hats... I love this wedding tradition of Great Britain!!

Oh, why do we not wear hats like this is the U.S. of A.???

Erica said...

haha...we had to fight a whole war to gain liberty from the hats :)

I can't imagine wearing hats like those! Some of them are really quite silly! Ahh, I love America! The only hat I liked a little was the one the woman in the "scrumptious outfit". But that is mainly because it's Edwardian-ish and I love the Edwardian era!

Quite entertaining! The ensamble in the first picture is very elegant, but, I must confess, I couldn't help thinking the hat resembled a UFO! Oh dear, it must come from growing up with brothers! ;)

A lot of the hats were pretty ridiculous... I was wondering how some of them stayed on their heads! But it was such a beautiful wedding, wasn't it?
