By Azure Nelson, Published May 2, 2011

We know that the royal wedding will have a major impact on trends to come. Bridal designers are already rushing to create wedding dresses reminiscent of Kate Middleton's Sarah Burton stunner. One trend that everyone is holding out for (and royally excited about) is the high-fashion millinery trend. From bright and bold to dramatic and ornate, hats were the must-have accessory for Friday's royal nuptials! While Philip Treacy was the go-to designer, royal milliner Stephen Jones made a splash, too! He's excited about the renewed interest in high-fashion headwear. 'I think for a younger generation — somebody in their 20s — they will see that there are many hat options and a world outside a baseball cap, a little fedora or a beret,' said Jones. For the first time in decades, hats will make a major comeback but the impact won't be instantaneous. Expect the royal wedding hat craze to hit the US next spring. Which hat pictured above is just your style? And for your fairytale wedding, will haute couture hats be appropriate accessories for wedding guests?
