“Hats are a sign of festivity for a British wedding. They are kept on inside the church, but people should be careful of the people sitting behind them,” Plaza Hotel etiquette expert Myka Meier told The Associated Press. “It’s not the Kentucky Derby. No huge brims. Nothing too high,” she said, of the royal wedding.
