Bridal Caplets, Cocktail Hatlets & Wedding Fascinators

The new Duchess of Cambridge certainly wasn't the first person to don a fascinator, but she has thrust them into the spotlight like never before.  We love that the cocktail hat and fascinator trend has crossed the pond.  But why should the wedding guests have all the fun?  Here are some of our favorite new bridal caplets, cocktail hatlets, and wedding fascinators.  They're the perfect, fun accessory to pop on in place of a traditional veil or to change your look for the wedding reception.  Above, a new designer Jillian Marie Designs, creates gorgeous vintage inspired hats full of old school glamour.  My favorite?  Aptly named, Diana, $300, a silk hat with gentle pleats rosettes and a traditional tulle accent.

Toni, $160
This gentle piece features tradition tulle accented with a feather and soft fabric pouf.  Each of these pretty Jullian Marie pieces are made in the USA and come complete with fabric finished backs and two small combs for easy securing to your hairdo.

Diana sans tulle and petite pearl accents, $300
Shelly,  $240
A gorgeous petite fascinator with a vintage inspired crystal accent and gorgeous feather.  Wear these pretty pieces back and to the side of your head.

Lily, $150
This traditional style is edged with hand sewn crystal details and accented with Russian tulle.

Are you considering wearing a fascinator or cocktail hat to your wedding instead of a traditional veil?  How are you wearing these pretty pieces?  We'd love to know.
