A style enjoying a huge resurgence in the head covering department is a hat called the Fascinator. Fascinators are whimsical, frivolous headpieces, usually involving feathers, beads, flowers, and veiling and are worn on the head at an angle. These hats go back to the 17th century and were worn as an alternative to hats and seen as a compliment to the elaborate hairstyles of the day. In recent years, many brides had added a Fascinator for that elegant look. What do you think about this as an alternative to a veil?
