Our Royal Wedding Predictions
What we think Meghan will wear for the Royal Wedding
Next week will be the moment the world of bridal has been waiting for, the first glimpse of Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. As every bridal boutique, at CCBB we have been chatting about what Meghan is likely to wear and here are our predictions!
Meghan’s style is typically classic, a lover of oversized white shirts and fitted trousers, often in monochrome tones. For events Meghan is often seen wearing structured dresses with A-line or pencil skirts. Meghan is rarely seen without straps or some form of shoulder cover. Overall her style can be called polished perfection with a touch of dishevelment.
The rumoured designer for the royal wedding dress is Ralph and Russo. Ralph and Russo was founded by the Australian couple Tamara Ralph and Micheal Russo. Based in London Ralph and Russo is the only English couture fashion label. Famed for their accessible luxury, their magnificent wedding dresses often require handlers on the catwalk to assist models pivot and turn- let’s hope Meghan’s is slightly easier. A key feature of the Ralph and Russo wedding dress is the elegant embroidery and veil.
We think Meghan, as a royal bride will have a wedding dress made of structured silk in a classic silhouette such as A-line, such as Stella York 6634. True to Meghan’s style, and following royal traditions we expect the wedding gown to feature sleeves or at the very least straps. Meghan favours v necks and we expect the dress to feature this neckline. Meghan is a fan of draped fabric with minimal detail and we believe the detailing on the gown to feature pleated or ruched material with some embroidery, especially on the train.
Meghan is expected to have two wedding dresses, and we expect her evening gown to be more reflective of Meghans style. We envisage a fitted top, with either a slim or a-line skirt. Meghan may opt for a high neckline or a off the shoulder style dress. Could she surprise us all with a touch of colour?
Typically royal brides wear tiaras and we do not expect Meghan to break the tradition, wearing her hair down or to the side we expect a glorious tiara to be accessorised with small earrings.
We can’t wait to see what Meghan chooses for her wedding day and look forward to seeing if our prediction is right! What do you think the royal bride will choose? Will you be following Meghan’s style?
