Royal Wedding - the unique hats of the guests -

by Nozomi U.
(Tokyo, Japan)

On 29th April, 2011, the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton was held in London. It seems like 2000 guests were invited. Two of the guests there were Mr. and Mrs. Beckham. They are so famous, even in Japan. The wedding was broadcast in many countries and a lotta people congratulated them from all over the world.

However, what I noticed is that all of the guests were wearing soooooo beautiful hats. In their twenties through old women, I say again "all of the guests"!!! I was so surprised and thought that it might be the custom in England to wear beautiful hats at weddings, at the moment. Actually it's a manner that a woman who is invited to wear a hat at a wedding in England. Then it seemed the invitation informed that the guests must attend with a hat.

In Japan, people attend with various dresses or kimonos. Still we don't have the customs like English ones. Frankly speaking, I like this custom because it makes a wedding brilliant. If I have a chance, I wanna try it. :))) ha-hah

Nozomi in a beautiful wedding hat
by: Gary Wolff

What a great story, Nozomi, and what fantastic pics!!

I didn't see the royal wedding, but I did see all the great hats on the news afterwards. I agree with you....those hats really made the wedding brilliant.

And Nozomi, I've seen you wear some very nice, stylish hats to our class, so I know you will look beautiful in one of those English wedding hats.

Of your photos above, I like the pink hat best (top right). Will you wear one like that to our class in September? :-)

Which hat is YOUR favorite?

Thanks again, Nozomi, for your very entertaining story...
