Actress-turned-princess Meghan Markle has officially tied the knot with Prince Harry, and she left brides to-be all over the world pining over her simply perfect Givenchy ceremony dress and her Stella McCartney reception dress. The desire to look regal on the big day is alluring for many brides, which is why Royal Wedding look-alike gowns have been selling out of stores faster than you can say “Royal Family”.
Whether you want your dress to look simple and elegant like Markle’s ceremony dress or sleek and stunning like her reception dress, one thing is certain: this princess thinks less is more (and we agree). Search for simple patterns, an a-line design and add a glamorous train or veil to achieve princess perfection. If you’re looking for something to add pizazz, look for dresses that have geometric stitching or a creative applique, or find dresses with three-quarter or full length sleeves to follow the royal’s nod to a more conservative tradition. If you’re in favor of simple and sweet, bring some unexpected flare with a box pleat or an off the shoulder neckline. Most importantly, remember that the fairytale wedding of your dreams is your own, so find a style that honors the royal’s fine fashion while sticking to your own unique style. With so many different looks out there, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfectly posh dress to embody the queen you truly are on your big day.
