What to wear to a wedding, a christening and a funeral  dress codes and rules explained

There are some rules to wedding guest dressing Weddings are formal occasions, so it's a great opportunity to don your best: dresses and heels are perfect for the occasion. If you're not a dress kind of lady, smart jumpsuits, trouser suits or skirt suits will also work, depending on the time of year. Smart flat shoes are fine (ideal for dancing) but avoid trainers at all costs. Many women choose to wear hats and fascinators to weddings, so make sure you choose one that matches your dress perfectly. Christening outfits should avoid black and navy Christenings don't tend to be quite a formal as weddings, but it's still important to look smart, especially if you have a leading role. If you're one of the parents or possibly a Godmother, opt for a floaty dress paired with low heels or maybe a high-waisted trouser suit. Avoid black and navy, opting for pastels and lighter colours instead. For a funeral, stick to black unless stated otherwise Wearing black to a funeral is one of the longest traditions in fashion, with the dark colour symbolising mourning. The custom of wearing black funeral attire goes back to the days of the Roman Empire when the Romans would wear dark togas as a symbol for death. In some cases, families decide to eschew the dark dress code and ask their guests to wear colour, turning the occasion into celebration of life. Keep your look smart, opting for a dress, trouser suit, skirt suit or jumpsuit and possibly a hat.
