Princess Diana will forever be our style icon. From her off-duty looks to her elegant wedding dress that, decades later, continues to act as the influence behind modern day bridal gowns, she always got it right. The same goes for her wedding guest outfits.

With social restrictions on weddings finally starting to ease just in time for the most romantic season of the year, here some of Dian's most iconic wedding guest looks to recreate this year.
