Last weekend saw the largely awaited marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The pair tied the knot on Saturday in a grand and beautiful ceremony, becoming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Whilst Harry donned the traditional military uniform of the Blues and Royals for the wedding (for which he was granted permission from the Queen) and Meghan - a beautifully understated, three-quarter- lengthed sleeved Givenchy gown; eyes were also on the famous guests that attended.
Being a wedding guest can be quite tricky... you want to stand out without upstaging yet somehow not show up in the same outfit as another guest. One look that was given a royal revival was the morning suit. A morning suit is what it says on the tin – a suit that is worn for day-time formal events – when it is too early for a tuxedo. The suit is identified by a longer tail, a waistcoat and a pair of trousers – all made from the same material. One man who wore it so well was (of course) David Beckham.
Beckham paired his Dior Homme jacket with a lighter, dove grey double-breasted waistcoat which broke up the traditional look, making it a cool alternative to the usual go-to two-piece. And what style icon Becks does, the rest shall follow so cue an influx of morning suits appearing at weddings throughout summer.
However, Beckham was not the only guest in attendance...George Clooney
Sporting a light grey, check suit George complimented Amal's bright yellow dress - coordinating with matching pocket square and tie. Grey is a great colour for summer weddings as the colour is unstated enough as to not upstage the groom but also light and bright enough to ensure you don't fade into the background all while keeping in with the summer vibe.
Extra points for teaming it with a blue shirt - light blue and grey are always a winning combination.
Wearing Navy, Tom looked effortlessly cool in a tailored three-piece. Accessorised with a Gucci Lapel pin and a pair of sunglasses. A fine example of 'if it's not broken, don't fix it'
Navy was a very popular colour across the board - Jonny Wilkinson updated his with a pair of tan brogues and Nacho Figueras stood out in the sea of navy with a tailored double-breasted blazer. Each showing that Navy does not have to be boring.
Other ways you can update a suit to make it 2018 wedding ready is to use a colourful/ patterned tie to add a pop of colour, convert to a pinstripe trouser and even add a change of shoe (go for tan instead of black or a loafer instead of a brogue).
Finally, an event wouldn't be complete without Sir Elton John wearing a pair of quirky glasses...
