What Will Meghan Markle's Wedding Gown Look Like? Here Are Some Clues

November 28, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty

If you’re like us (and half of America, all of Britain, most of the planet), you’ve spent the last 24 hours glued to various websites and TV stations, obsessed with all things Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The couple announced their engagement and are expected to wed in Spring 2018, which hello, isn’t a whole lot of time for the duchess-to-be to get her wedding gown shopping on. And, yes, that’s the next focus in this glorious union that deserves our undivided attention pronto: what will Meghan Markle’s wedding gown look like?

Well, first off: Markle won’t have regular bridal woes when it comes to dresses — every designer on Earth will be vying for the chance to deliver gorgeous gowns in her size to her feet. Given the clues Markle has provided about some of her favorite bridal designers and celebrity gowns, it could look a little like the romantic gown by designer Anne Barge that Markle’s character Rachel Zane wore in Suits.

So, what can we expect the bride to wear at the next big royal wedding?

A Classic, Simple, Clean Gown By One Of Her Favorite Designers

J. Mendel gown

In an interview with Glamour magazine, Markle ‘fessed up that she is actually crushing on several famous designers, all of whom are known for creating incredible bridal fashions. “Delphine Manivet and Christos Costarellos are faves of mine for their uniqueness and beauty,” Markle told Glamour. “And I will always be a fan of Elie Saab. J. Mendel is spectacular as well, especially for more structural designs.” If structural is what Markle craves and she’d like a gown that’s the opposite of poufy and princess-like, one like this J. Mendel fits the bill: it boasts a high neckline, slim-cut fit, and only the slightest hint of a mini trumpet flare that begins below the knee.

Something With A Bit More Embellishment (But Not Much)

Elie Saab

Elie Saab, another designer Markle name dropped, is known for dressing celebrities like Beyonce, Halle Berry, Cate Blanchett — and is even a favorite for members of royalty like Princess Stephanie. If Markle chooses one of the Lebanese designer’s ethereal gowns, she can expect classic, modern cuts with more feminine twists — a Saab gown almost always has crystal-encrusted details or an uber-long dramatic train. “Classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist,” Markle told Glamour. “I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic.” Saab’s creations are everything Markle described (and then some).

A Silk Slip Dress With A Gorgeous Bouquet Of White Flowers

Meghan Markle

When asked about her favorite celebrity wedding gown, Markle’s choice came from another era — the ’90s: “Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. Everything goals.” When Bessette married John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1996, most brides were rocking seriously complicated, ornate gowns with major veils. Bessette brought in a new era of simplicity with a Narciso Rodriguez white slip dress, white gloves, a single-layer veil tied to her low chignon, and little more than a touch of makeup. Can Markle pull off a slip at her wedding? Probably not. Historically, few members of royalty have wed in a gown that didn’t have some sort of sleeve (more often than not, a full sleeve). Meghan and Harry are going to do things their way, for sure, but maybe expect Markle to rock a gown that embodies the classic feel of Bessette’s slip, with a few romantic touches ala Elie Saab, and one major bouquet of florals.

Whatever she chooses, we’re so here for it.
