Meghan Markle's Reception Dress Is Going To Be Surprisingly Sexy

Set your alarm—we’re just a few days away from the wedding of the decade. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are saying “I do” on Saturday, May 19 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. A few secrets have been spilled here and there about the wedding and reception, but aside from knowing the intricate details of their yummy organic elderflower and lemon cake, mum has been the word about Meghan’s bridal style.

But amidst all of the secrecy, we can get excited about one juicy tidbit. It turns out we’ll be able to coo two times that day over two separate wedding gowns: like many great brides before her, including her future sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Meghan will wear two dresses on her wedding day.

Can we all say it together: YES.

It should come as no surprise that we don’t actually know the designer Meghan has chosen or whether that designer will work overtime creating two spectacular gowns for Meghan, who will likely take on the title “Duchess of Sussex” when she weds Harry. We do know that her decision to rock two dresses is a little unorthodox for British royals—though Kate Middleton bucked tradition by changing out of her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown and sliding into a floor-length ivory satin gown (also designed by Burton) for her reception.

Meghan will follow suit by wearing one gown at her church wedding and the other at her not one, but two receptions that will be thrown in Meghan and Harry’s honor at St. George’s Hall and (later in the evening) at Frogmore House.

Here are all of the details about Meghan’s royal reception dress:

Meghan's Second Dress Will Break British Bridal Traditions

According to U.K. bridal designer Caroline Castigliano, who spoke with Brides, the question isn’t will Meghan Markle wear two wedding dresses but more: what exactly can we expect from Meghan’s second wedding dress?

“Meghan will definitely change for the reception,” Castigliano told Brides. Even though “British brides are not so prone to having two dresses. They prefer to wear a gown that can be adapted from a day to night look. This often means they will have a sleeved lace jacket or shrug that they will take off in the evening to reveal a strapless gown and add a glitzy belt and beautiful jewelry.”

Castigliano took a guess about Meghan’s bridal style for both her church and reception gowns and it’s incredibly on point.

Meghan’s Reception Dress Will Show Off More Of Her Style

If you’ve been paying attention to Meghan Markle’s amazing style, which we've had a chance to do thanks to her recent appearances with Harry, you may have noticed a theme: Meghan is a big fan of form-fitting midi skirts and dresses. She looks great in modern, streamlined clothing that isn’t fussy, but is tailored and well made.

Obviously, her bridal gown is going to be more “wow” then a skirt suit, but Castigliano says she believes Meghan will reveal more of her own style when it comes to her reception dress.

"The gown she will wear for the service and daytime reception will be classic," she told Brides, and made her best prediction: ”Her gown will have sleeves, her shoulders will be covered, and there will be no cleavage. The dress Meghan will wear for the evening reception will be fitted and slinky.”

Castigliano went on to say she thinks Meghan will choose something backless and sleeveless “to show off her stunning figure.”

Let’s take a guess at what Meghan’s reception dress will look like, shall we?

This gorgeous Roland Mouret silver-flecked textured-lamé gown is so Hollywood, which perfectly honors Meghan’s pre-royal life as an actress. it’s also strapless and sexy, without going overboard—the Queen and Prince Charles are throwing them their reception parties, after all.
