    Its the style now.

    I just went to a wedding and wore the fascinator from my wedding. I also wore a blue dress though.   Several other people both young and old had them.

    I would say as long as it’s not white, let her! No one is going to think she is the bride. Why not let her have some fun!

    I think it is stylish nowadays. Let her wear it, but the “no white” rule remains!

    Not odd at all, especially if it compliments her ensemble. A white fascinator with a birdcage veil? Heck no!

    It may work at a tea party, but I don’t think it works for a wedding personally.  Though I’m not a big veil or fascinator person in the first place, so I may be biased.

    In the end, it really is no big deal, but I’d probably think it were strange – especially if someone was explicitly asking for your permission.  To me, that implies that they aren’t sure if it’s cool or not.

    It depends.  Like others said, its sylish and fine as long as it doesnt look like you could wear it.  But I think it depends on you wedding too.  It would work for a day wedding but not an evening one.

    I think it’s a great idea. Very stylish and classy.

    I think it’s odd if she’s the only one wearing one.  But otherwise, it’s very fashionable

    Odd, yes, but it wouldn’t bother me.

    Oh, let her.  Blame the British!

    We let my father and my father-in-law pick their own ties (the other guys wore matching ties) and of course, my father decided he was going to wear a bright purple bowtie.  I didn’t argue with him.  If that’s what he wanted then so be it!  My mother thought he looked adorable (of course she did).

    To each their own!  Who knows, she might change her mind about if by the time August rolls around.

    @ViaMinorViator:  Nothing wrong with hats at weddings! 

    I’ve given up on my mother in law. She’s not interested so she can wear what she likes as long as she doesn’t wear a ballgown.
