Meghan Markle arguably changed the face of fashion with her wedding day style. Clean, simple and undeniably chic, the new Duchess of Sussex chose to wear a custom Givenchy wedding dress for her ceremony to Prince Harry and a high-neck crepe dress by designer Stella McCartney for the reception. Both dresses captured Meghan’s decidedly American style – structured and tailored. We love how she added even more drama with the addition of a cathedral length veil. Her veil, also made by the house of Givenchy, was hand embroidered with flowers from the Commonwealth – something Meghan specifically requested. Also embroidered on the veil were flowers that reminded Meghan of her hometown of LA and wheat stocks which symbolize peace and unity.
Meghan Markle’s long-sleeved off-the-shoulder dress was such a stunner, we know brides will be looking to copy her style for years to come. We love how she kept her dress clean and elegant. The relaxed fit-and-flare silhouette with slight train captured her style perfectly!

Long sleeves and an off-the-shoulder neckline are key, however, silhouettes with clean lines and wedding dresses with modern silhouettes are similar, too.
If you want to add a little lace, this wedding dress by designer Stella York is both affordable and chic. Off-the-shoulder sleeves match Meghan’s but are done in traditional lace. This wedding dress also has the same relaxed fit-and-flare silhouette that Meghan chose for her gown.
