With the wedding of the year taking place this weekend, and the wedding dress of the year under lock and key in Windsor Castle (will it be Erdem or Alexander McQueen; Burberry or Beckham?), we naturally want to talk about outfits.

Deciding what to wear as a wedding guest can also be a daunting task and, like Meghan Markle’s much-anticipated gown, your look has to suit the occasion.

Modern weddings can range from relaxed garden parties to retro-glam black-tie events, resulting in a bewildering set of options.

The Spree team adores weddings of every kind, so they’ve helped to narrow your choices while elevating your wedding guest game.

Here are some stylish options for a black-tie, church or garden-party wedding that should see you through wedding season in style:
