To answer a previous question, HM King Carl Gustav wasn't wearing the sash of the Order of the Garter (which was the senior British Order he was wearing in the form of the breast star of the Order), because he was in a naval order-of-dress (which means type of uniform, nothing to do with the orders of Knighthood), in which one does not wear a sash.

HMQueenElizabethII;

Invitations to functions generally state wheather or not guests should wear Orders Decorations and medals.

To try and summarise the rules for wearing:

Full-sized Orders Decorations and medals are worn in formal military dress during daylight hours (and in the early morning eg: dawn services etc).

Miniture decorations and medals are worn (on the left lapel) with full-sized orders (eg: a sash and up to four order stars) in formal evening dress, however, as mentioned previously, if one is wearing black-tie and a dinner jacket, one doesn't usually wear a sash.

In various orders of military dress however, one doesn't wear the full-sized medals and decorations which would otherwise be pinned over the left breast pocket, but instead wear the ribbon bars of the corresponding orders, decorations and medals over the left breast uniform pocket, while at the same time wearing the senior breast star and (in some cases), sash. A terriffic example of this was in 1980, when HRH The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales represented Her Majesty at the independance ceremonies of Zimbabwe.

TMK, the only sash Diana received was a junior Dutch one, orange with white stripes. There's a photo of her wearing it somewhere on the net.
