Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding Gown Guide

What is it about a royal wedding that gets everyone so riled up and antsy? It seems that every time the announcement that someone within the British royal family has been engaged, it creates a media frenzy and a deep interest in the Windsor’s once again. However, of all the fancy things, the dress seem to pique the public’s interest most. Just like with Duchess Kate Middleton’s gown, everyone seems to be going crazy over which designer the future princess may wear. Typically, English brides within the royal family are expected to wear English designers to their wedding. However, Princess Meghan may be the first to break from tradition and wear an atypical designer for her big day.

Like the rest of us, designer Caroline Castigliano is eager to see what the future princess will wear on her wedding day. And what better way to predict Meghan’s gown then to design it oneself? Having just released her sketch of Meghan’s dress, Caroline has become the first designer to releases a sketch for a gown designed specifically for the future princess. Like all of Caroline’s designs, Meghan’s dress has contemporary simplicity. It perfectly showcases everything a modern princess would want in her royal wedding dress. The delicate lace back provides the coverage a princess is expected to wear on her wedding day, without looking dated or matronly. While the elegance of a beautiful full silk skirt completes the look, adding the perfect balance of modern stylish flare to the more traditional sleeve. It seems to be exactly who Meghan is style wise, classically elegant with a fresh and modern twist.

Suzanne Neville is renowned as one of England’s best dressmakers when it comes designing bridal gowns. So it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the future princess decided to wear a gown made by the designer on her wedding day. Since the gowns are handmade in the traditional styles found in major European couture houses, it would be lovely to see Meghan in something a far more ornate than just a traditional lace gown. This stunning embroidered ball gown encompasses exactly what royalty should look like — regal, ornate, and luxurious.

Temperley London has become a quintessentially British brand that encompasses the elegance, refinement, and grace that goes hand in hand with a British lady. Temperley’s designs fit in the with the Anglican expectation of modesty. Many of the gowns presented during Temperley’s latest Bridal Fashion Week presentation showcased classic gowns wrapped in lace, offering the coverage and modesty expected within the walls of Westminster Abbey.

Needle & Thread has become synonymous with modern fairytale glamour. Their affordable demi-couture gowns are created with the utmost intricacy and care, allowing any bride to experience what it’s like to have a gown handmade for their wedding day. However, Needle & Thread’s designs are often far more revealing than expected of a royal princess. But Meghan Markle doesn’t seem like she’ll be the spitting image of royal tradition. Rather, she may usher the royal family into a new era, where the image of what many feel a British princess should look is completely reworked.
