The Royal Wedding: Last Minute Thoughts & What I’d Wear!

It’s HERE!!!!! Tomorrow morning I’ll be up bright and early to watch the event of the year.  Of course, I had to post today about my final fashion guesses about the dress, hair, etc. but also had some fun dreaming up looks for guests (ahem, MYSELF). So here we go!!!

THE DRESS DESIGNER:  BURBERRY

I think it’s going to be Burberry– no label is more British and yet also offers goods to the masses. Megan wants to be the new “People’s Princess” and this choice would be brilliant.

THE DRESS STYLE: SIMPLE & CHIC

(Something in between these two Amsale gowns, perhaps?)

I don’t think she’s going to do a big ballgown with lace a la The Duchess and Pippa.  I think it’s going to be a more modern take on a royal wedding dress– long sleeves, satin with a little embroidery and a elongated semi-mermaid silhouette (but not crazy fitted).  A high neckline. The tiara will be subtle and the veil long but simple as well.

(My back up bet is a sheer sleeve with embroidery, like her engagement photo dress or a simple bodice and skirt with lace sleeves only).

THE HAIR: UP

Kate wore her hair half up half down but Megan seems to like her hair up, so I think it’ll be a simple bun/updo. Nothing severe, more loose but tidy.

THE MAKEUP: HER EVERYDAY LOOK

I think she’ll look like herself, just at 110%.  Pink cheek, sheer pink lip, slightly smokey eye. Dewy, fresh and pretty. Nothing severe.

Now, if I had been invited, what on earth would I wear?? Well, there are rules.  It’s a daytime wedding so nothing super formal, most women wear knee length dresses.  Fascinators and hats are a must, as are covered shoulders.  And no black or white (unless a print).  Covered toes too, so no strappy sandals at this fete!  Here are four outfits that I think would pass the Royal Wedding Guest test (and since this is hypothetical and, ya know, ROYAL— these are pricey items!)!

WHAT I’D WEAR

Colorful: dress // hat // shoes // bag

Bold: dress // hat // shoes // bag

Garden- Inspired: dress // hat // shoes // bag

Classic: dress // hat // shoes // bag

Now, for the evening event you can go a little sexier and formal– remember Pippa’s INSANE green dress???

These two looks would be SO much fun to wear (especially the 20k earrings) :)  I am particularly fond of that pink Oscar de la Renta.

WHAT I’D WEAR: RECEPTION

Elegant: dress // earrings  // shoes

Statement: dress // earrings // shoes

OMG GUYS I AM SO EXCITED.  I’ll be Instagramming tomorrow (Stories most likely so be sure to follow me so we can freeeeeeeaaaaaak out together starting at 6 am!)
