When you think of British weddings, or royal weddings in particular, you probably think of fancy hats and chic dresses. Since Real Simple editors Liz Steelman and Sarah Yang are heading across the pond to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding (or at least that's their plan), they turned to milliner Lynn Paik of The Millinery Shop in New York City, and stylist Neil Timiraos of Rent the Runway, for some sartorial assistance.

They learned about the dos and don’ts of royal wedding dressing, from choosing a hat to picking a complementary dress that that makes a stylish statement but won't steal attention from the bride. Watch the video above—and take notes for any weddings you have to attend in the future, royal or otherwise.
