What Will Meghan Markle Wear For Her Royal Wedding?

Here at New York Bride & Co., we’re anxiously awaiting this month’s royal wedding between Britain’s Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle. We can’t wait to see the style and silhouette of the princess-to-be’s wedding dress. Will she keep it sleek and chic or will ornate and opulent win out? We’ll all just have to wait to know for sure — but it doesn’t mean we can’t speculate. Here’s what the U.K.’s Brides magazine is expecting:

In terms of style, Meghan has confessed to loving Carolyn Kennedy’s wedding style. Caroline wore a very simple Narciso Rodriguez white slip dress when she married John F. Kennedy Jr. While we’re sure Meghan will have to up the glamour and opulence on the day, we’re expecting her to follow suit with a classic yet modern style that’s free of embellishment.

Sincerity Bridal, style 44052: Romance defines this voluptuous tulle ball gown. An inverted V neckline gives way to a delicate basque waist for the fitted bodice. The gorgeous corset lace-up back ensures a perfect fit. Beaded appliques add extra dazzle to the illusion bodice. This chapel length gown is available in numerous sizes. Available colors: Ivory/Silver/Nude (pictured above), or White/Silver/White.

While we don’t know which style of wedding dress Meghan Markle will wear, industry experts have plenty of opinions about what they’d like to see her in. This round-up gives you a good sampling of the ideas:

Olga Yermoloff, Owner and Creator, Olvi’s

“My vision of Meghan’s bridal look is sophisticated with a modern and feminine touch — without being too revealing. A perfect dress for a young royal bride would be an A-line gown with an impressive skirt and a cathedral train finished with gorgeous lace applications. The top of the dress can be form fitting, which is perfect with French stretch lace, and both the top and the sleeves can have sheer lace details. All the elements of the gown should incorporate a sophisticated and royal feeling. It is important to balance the traditional royal feeling with the modern style of Meghan.”

Caroline Castigliano, Designer, Caroline Castigliano

“I would love to see Meghan wear a lace fit-and-flare gown with soft beading and a detachable silk zibeline train. I imagine the gown having a deep-V neckline with lace sleeves and buttons running from the wrist to elbow. The dress will be elegant and sophisticated with a modern touch.” Read more at Fashionista



Essense Designs, style 6662: This fit-and-flare beauty offers sultry lace sleeves and off-the-shoulder femininity. The modern neckline showcases the intricate back detailing with flirty lace in a striking floral pattern. This classic showstopper features a cathedral train for added drama. Available in numerous sizes. Available colors: Ivory and White.

If you’re up for one last round of royal gown speculation, take a look at what Harper’s Bazaar thinks based on their assessment of Markle’s style:

The Royal Favourites

…[F]ussy, formal and extravagant designs are unlikely to appeal to Markle, whose approach to royal style is different from her peers. When she made her first official appearance with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games back in September, she chose a relaxed, accessible ensemble of jeans and white shirt teamed with Sarah Flint ballet pumps. More recent appearances have seen her stick to a simple-but-stylish formula of dressing-gown coat, wide-leg trousers and heels. She has previously described French Vogue editor Emmanuelle Alt as her “style spirit animal,” which is polished but not manicured. “I think as you get older you feel more confident and you don’t need to put that much effort in — to be able to throw your hair up in that very French way of doing things,” she told Glamour.
