Easter bonnets
#1
Do the adults in your parish wear Easter Bonnets? Last year I wore my mantilla.
My youngest had an Easter Bonnet.
All other women had Mantillas.

I really want to wear an Easter Bonnet. I've seen some very nice ones at Macy's.  Since Easter is early this year I want to wear my spring coat and Bonnet and white gloves. Is this vanity? It's a light touquise that matches my dress.

I ordered some new color Mantillas. They have not arrived yet ..

I always wear my veil in church, even if I put it on after taking off a snow hat in the vestibule, and don't see a reason (for me personally) to change to wearing an Easter bonnet.  I did, however, switch to my gray veil, for which I have a strong dislike, at Septuagesima as an exceedingly small means to humble myself.

I had purchased what looked to be a beautiful, softly colored floral veil to wear the entire Octave of Easter, but when it arrived, it looked just like my grandma's couch when I was a baby -- and that couch was old then!

So that being said, I plan to return to my normal, white veil on the Vigil.  White is appropriate for Easter, I particularly like that veil, and I don't have to buy anything. :)

I do think an Easter bonnet is a nice tradition, but if it's not a good cultural fit and you'd rather not do it for one reason or athother, I don't see anything wrong with wearing your mantilla.  that could be your family tradition!

As Miss Shirley Q. Liquor says, Easter do not mean about hats.

Do you have pics of the Bonnets from Macys? ETA: Sounds so retro. Pics please! Actually, I did a search. Here they are:

We had a thing going a while back where some of the ladies wore hats (instead of mantillas) to the High Mass every second Sunday. It was fun to switch things up, but then it sort of fizzled out. Darned Kung Flu ruins everything, everything!

Anyway, I picked up two. I share for your viewing pleasure.
Below, my black one:

It's always been a goal of mine to have a Kentucky Derby party where all the ladies are required to wear outlandish hats. We'll drink mint juleps. Never had one, but they sound so fancy! 

Maybe I'll do it this year. I'll have to see what hubs thinks. Maybe one of these hats. Lol, they say you could wear it to church, too. What do you think, heheheheh! I'm liking the Burgundy, but Burgundy's not really a springtime color, is it? Perhaps purple would be best...When's the Kentucky Derby?

That is a hat in capital letters. Can't help but be reminded of the Irving Berlin song from Holiday Inn.

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said Throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen.

I mean what were they thinking?!?! Brits are so over the top, heheh, bad joke I know. That said, crazy hats are fun, just not at church. Usually the English are so tasteful....
