I don't like them. If someone else wants to wear one, more power to them, but I don't like the look and I especially hate the feel of wearing a hat!

i'd do it if everyone else was (ie i was in britain at a wedding) i think it would be super fun to choose a fancy little hat

I think it looks classy, but I've never been a hat person.

As I said, "American women (namely me), don't get the tradition of wearing decadent hats to weddings," so I was not trying to speak for all American women. In a quick conversation I had with some Sugar employees (think young, secular women in California), none of us knew exactly why, which is what led to the post. I know some American women do this, but I was writing about the royal wedding and the British tradition of women wearing hats, which seems more pervasive and extravagant than anything I've seen in the US, having lived on both the East and West Coast. I apologize for leaving anyone out, because honestly I'd love to hear about any religion or culture that does it!

Yea I have to agree with honeybrown. Majority of the black members in my family have tons and tons of hats. Every Sunday when they go to church they wear some kind of hat.

I was going to say the same as HoneyBrown1976 - you are NOT speaking for all American women...I have tons of black friends and, more particularly, their moms and grandmothers, who have more hats than shoes in their closets!

Well, apparently, you don't visit black churches in America. The hats are there and lovely!!! I think it's an awesome British tradition.

I saw a wedding of two British people in Central Park the last time I was in New York and from that day on I've wanted everyone to wear hats or headpieces to my wedding. It just looks so fun and festive.
