Wearing pastels may not make you a risk taker but you can’t go wrong wearing them. Fabulous for spring and summer nuptials, shades of lilac, baby blue and soft pinks always work well. Look to the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Kate and Meghan for inspiration.

Opting for a daring, bold colour will undoubtedly make you stand out from all the rest. Don’t be afraid to wear hues such as purple and vibrant yellow, just like stunning Amal Clooney when she attended Meghan and Harry’s wedding in May 2018.

Just because you’re at a wedding, doesn’t mean you have to wear one colour only. Mix it up by wearing different patterns and colours, whether it’s a summer or winter wedding, patterns always look great. We especially love this Alessandra Rich dress both Kate Middleton and actress Abigail Spencer wore in 2018.

 A Royal wedding wouldn’t be complete without a guest wearing a fancy hat or fascinator! Don’t be scared to add some Royal style by adding a hat to your outfit. From traditional hats to delicate fascinators, they’re an easy way to fast-track your ensemble to being wedding guest ready.

At Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May 2018, a popular style was floral dresses – and it’s easy to see why. Naturally a go-to print for spring and summer, floral dresses always look chic and very easy to pull off.
