The wedding date is set (May 2018—mark your calendars!) and the venue is booked (though we doubt they had much competition for St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle). Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding plans are coming along, and it’s full steam ahead. But wait! What about Meghan Markle’s wedding dress?!
That’s a detail this princess bride can’t forget to attend to—and she’d better hurry. Meghan Markle has mere months until she ties the knot. But no need to fret: If you’re reading this, Meghan, we are here to help. (Also, say hi to the queen’s corgis for us, please.)
We’ve recruited our favorite wedding-dress designers and asked them to create a sketch of the wedding dress they think Meghan should wear for her walk down the aisle. Should she steal soon-to-be sister-in-law Kate Middleton’s long lace sleeves or go for Princess Diana–esque puffed sleeves? Does a royal wedding dress require a cathedral-length train? Think the queen will make a classic gown a must, or should the American actress inject a bit of modernism into the monarchy with a completely unexpected frock?
Here’s what Hayley Paige, Ines Di Santo, Justin Alexander, and more have to say. According to Casablanca, this bride-to-be should opt for a feminine illusion neckline. Meanwhile, Theia envisions long sleeves and an ultra-high neckline for Meghan. And Luisa Beccaria sees her in a style similar to a lovely tulle embroidered gown from her Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
Do you think Prince Harry’s betrothed will end up wearing one of these wedding dresses down the aisle? Well, if not, at least we just gave her plenty of inspiration to work with! (You’re welcome, Meghan.)
