Weekly Inspiration: Brides + Bonnets

If you love weddings as much as I do, I'm sure you're up early to catch every minute of the Royal Wedding coverage. I'm most looking forward to seeing the bride's gown, but also the colorful assortment of custom hats worn by revelers.

In honor of William and Kate, I just had to share this picture of a bride who loved unique headwear as much as our neighbors across the pond. Commissioned by a milliner in France, she donned this miniature Swedish-style crown for the ceremony. It was made specially for her to replicate the one her mother wore on her wedding day. She then had a little fun by putting on a festive fascinator of greenery for the cocktail reception.

The Royal Wedding is sure to spark trends in the industry. I wonder if American wedding guests will adopt this British tradition in the months to come...
