This is a one time FREE course

The upcoming wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales to American actress and Northwestern University alumna Meghan Markle has ignited anticipation in fashion circles around the world. Threaded through the speculation of who will design the bridal gown, there is a lot of curiosity about the dress code for guests.

Will men be instructed to wear Uniform, Morning Coat, or Lounge Suit? Will women conform to the formula of pastel dress and jacket, augmented by a truly fabulous hat? What does “morning dress” mean? What’s the fascination with fascinators? Where did these rules come from and why are they still in force? 

Just in time to spruce up your wardrobe, this talk traces the origins of wedding wear conventions in a light-hearted overview of the decorum and dictates, the rule makers and breakers, and the most sensational fashion faux-pas from the time of Queen Victoria to the present day.
