Here are a few of Estee’s tips she follows when styling a celebrity for a summer wedding:

  • The White Rule: If you are going to wear white — because it’s summer and people often wear white — make sure it’s mixed with another color in a pattern.
  • Don’t look more important than the bride — keep it together, people! — but still stay beautiful and elegant because that exudes confidence.
  • Remember: what you’re wearing tells potential suitors what you’re looking for.
  • Comfort goes hand-in-hand with confidence, so wear your dancing shoes and something you can rock all night long.
  • Stay classy!

And finally, when you do your shopping, head over to Marshalls for designer, high-quality brands that won’t cost you a pretty penny!
