Wedding Dress Designers Predict What Kind Of Dress Meghan Markle Will Wear Down the Aisle

by Katherine Callaghan

Believe it or not, the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was only announced a little over a week ago, and Internet has been ablaze with 24/7 coverage of the royal wedding happening in May 2018. The countdown has officially begun and the royal wedding is already a major highlight of 2018, but the biggest question of all probably won’t be answered until the big day: what dress will the newest royal wear down the aisle.

Since the couple’s engagement and first royal outing, Meghan Markle is already making headlines as a style influencer (don’t believe me, the Strathberry handbag she carried on her first official royal outing sold out in 11 minutes!).  Some of the biggest designers in the bridal industry didn’t waste any time as to what they believe Markle will wear down the aisle.  Designers took to their sketchbooks and envisioned Markle wearing everything from a beautifully embellished ballgown to a slimming long sleeve fit and flare gown and everything in between.

It’s clear Markle has been thinking about her dream wedding dress long before her romantic proposal to the well-known British royal. According to an interview with Glamour, Markle discusses her Suits character’s, Rachel Zane, wedding and even hints at her own wedding dress inspiration. “Classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist. I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic. Delphine Manivet and Christos Costarellos are faves of mine for their uniqueness and beauty. And I will always be a fan of Ellie Saab. J. Mendel is spectacular as well, especially for more structural designs.” She also made a point in the interview to state that Carolyn Bessette Kennedy’s wedding dress is “everything goals,” a nod to the simple and elegant aesthetic Markle gravitates toward.

Just like Kate Middleton, we know whatever Markle wears down the aisle will spark major bridal trends. How many more days until the royal wedding?
