See what the stars wear to watch their friends say 'I do'.
When it comes to alternative wedding guest outfits, Kate Moss’s iconic look from the 2006 wedding of friends Bobby Gillespie and Katy England is always go-to inspiration. The supermodel eschewed dresses in favour of a breezy silk short suit, accessorised with a boyish fedora.
Through the years she’s served up plenty more wedding guest outfit ideas, from the pretty coral mini she wore to the high-fashion wedding of Jess Hallett and Pietro Birindelli in 2009, to the high-glamour oyster hued silk floor length gown and sapphire coloured shrug she rocked for Leah Wood’s big day the year before.
More recently, the royals have given us plenty of #inspo. Kate Middleton looked amazing in a custom Alexander McQueen dress to attend sister Pippa Middleton’s nuptials. In fact, the pair are regulars at high society weddings and always nail it when it comes to formal wedding looks. Fascinators, wrap dresses, blazers and LK Bennett courts are a signature wedding look the sisters.
Of course, you can always trust Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne and pals to pull out all the stops at weddings. Think floral gowns, chic suits and co-ords, designer heels and accessories. We’re still in love with the ruffle dress Poppy Delevingne wore to the wedding of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo in Italy in 2015.
It’s not just the UK set that does wedding guest style well though, special mention to Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Bosworth for always bringing some serious fashion game to the aisle.

Guest: Naomi Watts
The details: A-list actress Naomi Watts was the maid of honour to her longtime pal Emma Cooper when she said her vows in Sydney at the end of 2010.

Guests: Prince William and Kate Middleton
The details: Kate and William looked very much an item as they stepped out to attend the wedding of Harry Meade and Rosemarie Bradford in Northleach, Gloucestershire. Unusually, the pair arrived and left together, and were happy to be snapped for photographs, fuelling speculation an engagement announcement could soon be on the horizon. And of course, it was.

Guest: Kate Middleton
The details: Having such a high-profile guest as a royal bride-to-be at your wedding is always bound to be a limelight-stealer, but Kate avoided upstaging the bride by pairing down her styling in a demure black frock and Libelula dress coat, teamed with cute pillbox hat and matching plum clutch and heels. With beau Prince William busy with usher duties for the event, Kate arrived on her own, and spent the early 2011 ceremony accompanied by Prince Harry.
Guests: Princess Beatrice and Dave Clark
The details: Princess Bea and her beau Dave Clark were also on the guestlist for the lavish Yorkshire nuptials. The young royal kept warm at the wintry wedding in an elegant grey dress coat, adding a pop of colour with her purple fascinator and navy heels.
Guests: Sarah Ferguson, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie
The details: The glamorous royal three were in attendance to see Fergie's half-sister Alice, tie the knot to her banker beau in a country ceremony in Hampshire earlier this year. And you could fail to notice this glamorous mother-daughter guest trio as they arrived, with each donning oversized feathered fascinators to match their individual dresses.
Guests: Stuart Townsend and Charlize Theron
The details: When Salma Hayek tied the knot to millionaire businessman François-Henri Pinault in 2009, it was always going to be a glittering affair. Leading the pack of glamorous attendees, Charlize Theron looked radiant in a frilled, tiered grey dress, and made a stunning wedding guest at the extravagant Venetian nuptials. The actress attended alongside long-term (and now ex) love Stuart Townsend, and was spotted on the way to the couple's masquerade rehearsal dinner. A romantic look, for the ultimate romantic ceremony.
Guests: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
The details: Salma and François-Henri's glittering wedding guestlist was completed with two of Hollywood's hottest starts - a couple who tied the knot a year later, themselves. Penelope and Javier hopped into a boat to reach the swanky rehearsal nuptials, held at the Palazzo Grassi, a white marble palace built in 1748-1772 and owned by the Pinault family since 2005. Sounds nice, no?
Guest: Stella McCartney
The details: Stella McCartney may have been kept her masquerade ball mask close to her face, but there was no mistaking the designer's signature look as she stepped out for Salma Hayek's star-studded nuptials. Never one to be outdone, Stella styled it up with the best of them, in a chic black blazer and oyster satin dress.
Guest: Anna Wintour and Charlize Theron
The details: She may be one of fashion's most powerful women, but Anna Wintour isn't above recycling a great dress. The style maven sported a glamorous Chanel beaded monochrome dress for Salma and François-Henri's Venetian ceremony, the same she wore to the Dolce & Gabbana party during Milan Fashion Week. The perfect A-list guest ensemble.
Guests: Lily Cole and Enrique Murciano
The details: One of the many fashionable faces at the glittering Italian wedding of Salma Hayek and fashion mogul François-Henri Pinault, Brit beauty Lily Cole looked ravishing in a midnight blue maxi dress. She attended the famous couple's rehearsal dinner with a whole host of Hollywood A-listers, and handsome date Enrique Murciano on her arm.
Guests: Lee Mead and Denise Van Outen
The details: There were no end of familiar faces descending on Claridge's for the superstar couple's big nuptials earlier this year, including Denise Van Outen and husband Lee Mead. Who would of thought that the gorgeous Denise gave birth to baby Betsy just two weeks before - donning a pretty, printed tea dress, she looked positively glowing! Denise and Lee celebrated with the bride and groom at the lavish ceremony at Claridge's in London, before moving on to swanky Soho house with fellow guests to party the night away.
Guests: James Corden and Julia Carey
The details: Unsurprisingly, there were plenty of our favourite comedy stars out to celebrate the wedding of fellow funnyman David Walliams, including Gavin and Stacey's James Corden, who arrived alongside girlfriend Julia Carey.
Guests: Alan Carr and Natalie Imbruglia
The details: In a slightly unusual pairing, Natalie Imbruglia arrived on the arm of comedian Alan Carr for the nuptials. The Aussie starlet looked stunning in an understated ivory pleated dress.
Guest: Tom Ford

Guests: Kate Moss and Liz Hurley
The details: The 2009 society wedding of Elle Perfect and Ben Caring was originally billed as a 'modest affair', but ended up packed to the rafters with famous faces, who all descended on the Caring family home, dubbed the Versailles of Hampstead. Kevin Spacey, David Walliams, Claudia Winkleman and Michael Parkinson were all among the wedding guests, as well as Elizabeth Hurley and Kate Moss. On this occasion Liz stole the show, in a glittering, glam black gown.
Guests: Yasmin Le Bon
The details: Yasmin Le Bon made a statement at the wedding of Patsy Kensit and Jeremy Healy donning a fuchsia-pink one-shouldered silk gown for the nuptials at One Whitehall Place, and reception at National Liberal Club in London. She kept her hair simple and sleek to let the striking silk gown do all the talking.
Guests: Liz Hurley and Arun Nayer
The details: Elizabeth Hurley was among a whole host of stylish guests - including Simon and Yasmin le Bon and comedian Katie Brand - at the Kensit/Healy nuptials, and was the essence of spring in a pastel-perfect frock with a pretty lilac floral print. She finished off the summery look with a ribbon sash around her waist - and hubby Arun Nayar on her arm.
Guests: Kate Moss and Jamie Hince
The details: Kate Moss arrived ten minutes late for the ceremony in central London, with daughter Lila Grace and boyfriend Jamie Hince in tow. But what she lacked in substance she made up for in style, dazzling dazzled in an oyster silk floor length gown, bejewelled clutch and jewel blue shrug.
Guests: Tyrone Wood and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
The details: The bride's brother Tyrone Wood and his then-girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley cut a seriously stylish figure, and took the gong for most glamorous guests at the summer wedding of Leah Wood and Jack Macdonald at Southwark Cathedral in 2008.

Guest: Kate Moss
The details: The supermodel kept it short and sweet at the quaint summer 2006 wedding of her pals in Cheshire, showing off her never-ending pins in an adorable two-piece suit. A quirky fedora and ever-important video camera completed the A-list look.
