As for any high-society British wedding, a guest attire staple is a fascinator, and today's Royal wedding was no exception. Guests at the historic wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry pulled out all the stops for the royal occasion.
Marie Galvin of Marie Galvin Fine Millinery told BRIDES that these headpieces can represent a status symbol, tradition, or just be for pure fun. She said it's the equivalent to a pair of Louboutins, which is a universal comparison we can all understand. Galvin said anything from perchers to bold and unusual architectural shapes would be in demand for the wedding.
Her predictions definitely came true. Many guests wore headpieces to perfectly match the rest of their royal wedding looks while pushing the bounds of gravity with their intricate styles.
From fellow royals, like Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to state-side celebs like Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra, fancy fascinators were in abundance at St. George's Cathedral. Scroll to see all the best fascinators and hats from the royal wedding.
