The Fascinating Fascinator

Lots of fashion watchers have noticed that Kate Middleton loves to wear fascinators, the feathery, flowery rather large barrette placed on the side of the head, and at the first day of bridal market in New York we're starting to see various designs of fascinators for both brides and bridesmaids.  But a fascinator isn't for every wedding-day look.

The fascinator can be worn with an informal gown and probably won't look best with a ball gown.  Wear it with a tea-length, ballerina style skirt or have your bridesmaids accessorize their dress with a colorful one.  If you're changing into a reception dress after your wedding ceremony you can swap out your veil and headpiece for a fascinator.  But the general rule is that a fascinator is more fun than formal so use that as a guide when deciding if one will work with your wedding dress.

While we've seen the future Princess in them before, you probably won't at her wedding to Prince William.  For that it's rumored that she will borrow a tiara from the Queen.
