The Royal Wedding – Hats and more Hats!

Of course everyone has been talking about the Royal Wedding and the first thing I did this morning was fast forward to the moment Kate Middleton stepped out of her hotel to reveal a glimpse of the DRESS!  What can I say except it was classic, elegant and designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. It featured “traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship,” a lace technique that dates back to the 1800s.

Something borrowed was from the Queen.  Kate’s tiara is a 1936 Cartier halo.  But I could not believe all those hats!  I loved seeing everyone in hats!  How come we don’t wear hats at weddings here in the US?

Of course Victoria Beckham’s hat was brilliant!  I also loved Sophie, Countess of Wessex’s hat which looked lovely with her blond hair.  Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice hats certainly made a statement but weren’t my favorite.  My favorite was the mother of the bride – that blue color was so beautiful and it was created by Berkshire based milliner Jane Corbett. I want to go out and buy a hat now but where would I wear it??
