If by now you aren't already aware of, admittedly excited for, curious, etc. about the Royal Wedding that is to take place tomorrow, then quite frankly: where have you been?! The world has been waiting not-so-patiently in the wings for this event, and more importantly, what Kate will be wearing. Much the topic of my flat's conversations for the past week, I predict a classic, fitted dress with a ridiculously long train to keep with Royal traditions. What do you think the blushing bride will be wearing?

The wonderful Sarah at City Girl's Fashion Box managed to *coughcough* nab me an invite to the wedding, so of course I'll be sharing my wedding-inspired outfits with you all. As well as myself, Sarah, Lucy, Lucy, Hannah, Emma, Gem and Hannah have also created wedding-inspired outfits and posts, so make sure you check out their take on the occasion.

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Showcasing my affinity for Topshop once again with my High Street look. I don't know how much of a no-no it is to wear brights to a wedding, or anything cream/white/ivory! But hey, I've gone out and done it anyway ;) I opted for this adorable sundress from Topshop, because it is sweet, prim and proper with a lovely cut-out effect at the waist which would look nice against a tan. (I can keep dreaming!) I couldn't decide between the cut-out waist dress, or this beautiful Peter Pan dress by one of Topshop's concessions. Oh lordy. It's so perfect. I chose bright accessories to liven the look up: the wedge heels are so beautiful and possibly even easy to walk in, and adding a clutch with scalloped details makes the look a bit more expensive and 'Chloe'. I couldn't not include a floppy hat, just for the lolz if anything!

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

When Sarah asked us to also style a designer look for the wedding, to keep up with the crowd and all, I immediately scoured Net-A-Porter for a fitting British designed dress, but true to my own tastes, I ended up selecting a Chloe piece. Much as it would be expected to turn up in an organza dress, frills and all, I think this shirt dress is perfect for the Royal Wedding and is still 'young' enough for a 20-year-old. Seeing as the Posh one herself should be in attendance of the wedding, I selected this clutch by Victoria Beckham for a pop of colour, complimented by similarly toned jewellery. I couldn't decide between these two pairs of heels: the Valentino pair are exclusive to Net-A-Porter, and are the most perfect pair of shoes I've seen all year.

What are your favourite pieces from these looks? I'm tempted to have a mini dress-up while I watch the wedding tomorrow morning, but we all know that all of us will be in our pyjamas, lounging around with a tear in eye, waiting to see Kate's dress. I hope you enjoyed this variation of W2W, especially if you are off to a wedding soon! Don't forget to have a read of the other girls' posts, I've linked them all below!

    Me too! I physically cannot pull off the floppy hat look though, fashion blogger fail ): Aw that sounds so lovely Danni, I think I'm watching the wedding at home or at the pub with the girls, then going to a student-organised street party which should be interesting to say the least!
