Royal Wedding Hats

Celebs at the Wedding
The Beckhams, Elton John among the big names!
It wouldn’t be a Royal Wedding without the outlandish head gear!

From the royal wedding party and guests to fashion royalty Victoria Beckham, check out the hats that made their way through the church. British women wear hats to weddings as a religious tradition…

Though it isn’t required by the Anglican Church, it’s more of an unwritten rule that ladies are to wear their best (and sometimes most outrageous) head dresses! Kate Middleton and Prince William wed at Westminster Abbey on Friday.

Kate chose a tiara (royal family heirloom) and a veil to wear on the big day. Prior to the highly anticipated kiss, Kate arrived at the church in a stunning Sarah Burton gown — complete with lace sleeves with a plunging neckline and full veil. She entered the Abbey led by her father, while sister and maid of honor Pippa held her train.
