A Royal Recap: From Best-Dressed Guests to Honeymoon Style

You completely cleared your schedule for an (early) Royal Wedding viewing party, right? Us too. It was not only an excuse to bake scones and sip tea, but also an opportunity to gush over the sophistication that is British style. From fascinators to jewels, we had our eyes peeled for the latest and greatest from the big day. Ahead, we’re dishing on how you can get the royal look.

For the Best-Dressed Guests

There’s always that one couple that steals the show. Enter: George and Amal. A sleek sheath dress is the ideal silhouette for a conservative occasion. For your next big event, opt for one in a bold color (ahem, sunshine yellow) for a serious statement. A clutch and a fascinator are a classic nod to royal traditions. Top it off by color coordinating with your beau? A total fashion YES.

For the Bride

Looking (and feeling) effortless during the big day is a must for every bride. A chic high-neck gown for your reception makes for the perfect second dress. It’s classy, but its body-hugging shape subtly says, “I’m ready to celebrate.” Go with perfectly undone hair and natural makeup. Now, you’re glowing.

For Mom

MOBs – this day is about you, too. You raised her after all, right? Take a cue from this gorgeous mama in a matching set in a soft pastel hue. A bejeweled clutch and chic white hat adds a bit of glam to her wedding-ready look.

For Beauty

When it comes to beauty on your big day, less is definitely more. Think about it: you want to look back on photos and feel like yourself. Try a buildable foundation to let your natural skin shine through. Lengthening mascara is key for making your eyes pop. A light pink lip color adds femininity to your natural look. Hello, blushing bride.

For Prince Charming

William and Harry never fail to nail the polished-but-laid-back look. Mixing it up with separates (rather than a matching suit) adds personality and style to your outfit. Invest in luxe shoes and belts ­– they’ll act as the statement-makers to this relaxed vibe.

For the Honeymoon

Whether you’re heading on a safari or taking a weekend trip close to home, channel your inner royal couple when making your packing list. Throw-on-and-go pieces are ideal for honeymooners. You’re there to relax, after all.

For Jewels

Don’t have a family heirloom of your own? Get the look with a cocktail ring in an icy hue for your “something blue.” Classic diamonds and gemstones always add a royal touch. The more, the merrier.
