What Dress Will Meghan Markle Wear for Her Wedding?


Plans for the royal wedding are in full swing and that means speculation about what Meghan Markle will wear are everywhere! Will she wear a long-sleeved lace gown like Kate Middleton? Will Ms. Markle go with something more modern, sleek and a daring? Will she stick to her more American style and completely change the rules of royal style? We’ll find out soon enough but until then, why don’t we wildly speculate about what Meghan Markle will wear right here.

A truly ornate and romantic piece, this wedding dress and overskirt combination is fit for a royal-wedding-inspired celebration. French lace embellished with thousands of sparkling beads covers this modern fit-and-flare gown from sweetheart neckline to hem. The ornate latticework on the dress is reminiscent of French couture, giving this dress a one-of-a-kind feel. Once the silk Oana Overskirt is placed overtop, you’re left with a grand, ballgown-inspired style fit for a queen!

Romantic lace gives this vintage-inspired pairing a sophisticated vibe. This combination features the Jude jacket and the Sander skirt from designer Martina Liana. With more of a Kate Middleton inspired feeling, this dress would be perfect for Ms. Markle’s wedding day style.

When asked about her favorite wedding dresses of all time, Meghan cited Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy as one of her all-time favorites. Simple, sleek and very timeless, this long-sleeved wedding dress mimics Carolyn’s wedding dress while still keeping the look traditional for a royal wedding, yet modern enough for Meghan’s personal style.

Who says royal wedding style has to be limited to a ballgown? Completely sophisticated, this flowy, column wedding dress brings all the royal glam to the table! Vintage-inspired beading covers the bodice and delicate cap sleeves of this romantic style, giving off a more boho rather than royal vibe. Dreamy, French tulle skirt completes the look. If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry opted for a less formal affair, we think she would definitely go for something like this!

Simple, chic and utterly amazing, this ballgown wedding dress is right up Ms. Markle’s alley! Grand Mikado and tulle take the shape of a voluminous silhouette that demands attention. A plunging V-neckline matches a V-back, giving this dress a hint of sexy – perfectly suited for royalty! This more modern take on a classic ballgown would be perfect for Meghan’s American aesthetic.

Wearing a ballgown may be inevitable for the future Mrs. Harry Winsor but we know Ms. Markle will put her own spin on this traditional silhouette. Shimmering and sparkling from head to toe, this off-the-shoulder ballgown is covered in rich silver beading, silver-edged lace, and lattice beadwork, only adding to the sophistication of the style. Antique beading is concentrated at the neckline, creating an effortless, romantic feeling that is complemented perfectly with the dramatic, sweeping skirt and train – ideal for walking down the aisle at Saint George’s.

The simplicity of this off-the-shoulder gown from Essense of Australia is what makes it so glamorous and gorgeous, perfect for the classic bride like Meghan. A plunging sweetheart neckline, reminiscent of an old-Hollywood style, extends effortlessly into off-the-shoulder sleeves creating a look that would highlight Meghan’s figure beautifully. Totally Queen approved!

This structured wedding dress from Essense of Australia was made for the bride in search of a classic, timeless style with a touch of glamour. The high neckline of this gown is accented beautifully with Diamante-beaded cap sleeves that keep this dress classic but with a modern twist. While we think Meghan may shy away from more traditional lace wedding dresses, we can’t help but hope she goes with something a little glitzy.
