MET Gala 2023 Wedding StyleMET Gala 2023 Wedding Style

Whether you’re planning your own nuptials or need a little nudge for your next wedding guest outfit, the 2023 Met Gala red carpet is the perfect place to pull a little (or a lot of) inspo. With a slew of bold yet surprisingly wearable looks alongside multiple homages to Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel couture bride, this year’s gala gave us no shortage of wedding-ready trends to try. Without further ado…

Monochrome

From Chanel’s iconic aesthetic to Lagerfeld’s own everyday uniform, monochrome ensembles were a major red carpet trend at this year’s Met Gala. A black and white wedding dress is a contemporary choice for your big day, while a black maxi dress is a timeless choice for guests. A white suit jacket with tailored black trousers (cc: Idris Elba) is an easy way for grooms to get in on the monochrome vibe.

Luxe Fabrics

Opulence was the order of the evening, and it can be the order of yours too. Black lace, sheer tulle, boucle and tweed are perfect for bringing an element of luxe texture to your wedding look – especially if you’re working with classic winter wedding colours like black, navy or deep red.

Embellishments

There’s no better day to dial up the glamour than your wedding day. An otherwise simple white gown comes to life when sequins, beading and feathers are involved – the devil’s in the details, after all. Whether worn around your neck or adorning your outfit, pearls bring an element of timeless elegance to your ensemble. Look to A-listers like Lizzo, Kim Kardashian and Karlie Kloss if you’re after some pearls of sartorial wisdom.

Elevated Outerwear

If you’ve got a cold weather wedding on the cards, don’t let your outerwear be an afterthought. A statement jacket or coat will make (rather than break) your look, with weighty textures, capes, faux fur and exaggerated shapes on the money if this year’s Met is anything to go by. Hot tip: a jacquard tie and pocket square combo creates a cohesive look even if you shed that outer layer.

Intentional Accessories

The secret to elevating any wedding look? A few key accessories. None more key in Karl Lagerfeld’s eyes than his signature sunglasses and gloves, with attendees paying homage with their own black frames. Choose a pair of black designer sunglasses, and you’ll never squint at an outdoor wedding (or have to pick up a pair from the servo) again. Gloves lend an old money vibe to even the simplest of suits – invest in a leather pair and you’ll get a surprising cost-per-wear.

Silver

While silver jewellery’s been simmering away for a while now, the Met Gala saw stars don the metallic from head to toe. With Lea Michele and Lil Nas X as your spiritual starting point, look for shimmering dresses, chrome accessories or silver shoes and build your look from there. Got a wedding party to shop for? Silver bridesmaids dresses are a sleek choice for day and evening ceremonies alike.
