You can certainly tell it is wedding season here in Britain. Every weekend, wedding guests can be seen walking around London in their wedding finest - summery dresses, teetering heels and fascinators abound. After the Royal wedding, even North Americans seem to have caught the British fascination with fascinators, so I thought I'd share a few tutorials to help you make a fascinator yourself.

This felt flower headband tutorial by British blogger Laura of Bugs and Fishes by Lupin would be more suitable for everyday wear.
Interestingly, most of the fascinator tutorials I found were designed by Americans and so were slightly more conservative than the styles we see and wear here in Britain, but this DIY fascinator tutorial from the Guardian has a slightly more British feel to it. Slightly quirky. If you want to see just how quirky hats and fascinators can get, check out this slideshow from Lady's Day at Ascot. Millinery madness, my friends.
