Guest outfits also depend on the time of day

At Prince Edward's wedding, women wore long gowns (but no tiara's) as they got married in the evening. Prince Charles and Diana and Andrew & Sarah both had daytime weddings (I think they were both morning.)

The couple set the dress code. They can choose to be formal or VERY formal.

I hadn't realised this - do you know if any Royal guests wore long?

Yes, they did. The Queen wore a long lilac dress with lots of beading. Here's a link to a picture of The Princess Royal. The young York girls wore day coats, but they were in a shiny fabric.

The Queen Mother was the only lady who wore day clothes and a hat. At her great age, perhaps a long dress would have been difficult for her to get around in.

Ooh about Edward and Sophie's wedding since it was an evening wedding then does that mean they had a reception instead of a wedding breakfast?
