The day of reckoning has finally come—the occasion we’ve been saving our fanciest hats and tiaras for. And while the royal wedding’s focus will always be first and foremost the bride and groom (read: Meghan Markle’s wedding dress), if we’re honest, the star-studded guests pouring into St. George’s Chapel are a close second…very close. And while those of use who rose at the crack of dawn to stream the nuptials were comforted by the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex, we were truly vindicated by the sartorial gold that was served by the celebrity couples in attendance. From Amal Clooney’s lemon-hued shift dress (and handsome George arm candy) to the Beckham’s sleek ensembles, the #couplesgoals were in overdrive at Windsor Castle.
Below, our picks for the dynamic duos of the big day. And, remember: All you need is love (and killer headwear).
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry
Hats off to the couple du jour who led the charge with their nuptial style (and heart-tugging love story). Meghan's understated-yet-elegant Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown and Harry's dashing traditional uniform made for the quintessential fairytale moment.
Amal And George Clooney
The human rights lawyer and husband George both embraced yellow for the royal nuptials, Amal with her vibrant Stella McCartney shift dress and George with his merengue-hued tie.
Victoria And David Beckham
The fashion designer repped her namesake brand by donning a navy-blue midi dress from her upcoming pre-spring/summer 2019 collection. An elegant Stephen Jones hat completed the ensemble perfectly, as did her always-dapper husband in Kim Jones for Dior Homme.
Serena Williams And Alexis Ohanian
The tennis star (in a stunning pale-pink Versace dress and Bulgari jewels) and husband Alexis looked equally radiant as they strolled into St. George's Chapel.
Pippa Middleton And James Matthews
Pippa—in a dress by The Fold—and James went for full-spring glam, opting for mint green and robin egg blue palettes respectively. No strangers to high-profile nuptials, the couple celebrated their own wedding almost a year ago (and are welcoming their first child this year).
Carey Mulligan And Marcus Mumford
The actress (in Erdem) and musician hubby chose the perfect event to make a rare public appearance.
Jacinda Barrett And Gabriel Macht
Meghan's Suits costar Gabriel arrived with his stunning wife, Australian actress Jacinda. The couple coordinated perfectly with their maroon dress-and-tie combo.
Idris Elba And Sabrina Dhowre
While Idris was definitely easy on the eyes with his navy suit, it was his "intended," Sabrina, who wowed in Gucci.
