For the bride hoping to mimic Meghan’s sophisticated wedding day look…
Since brides across the nation loved Meghan Markle’s wedding dress, we’ve asked our fashion intern, Izzy Shaw, to find the best look-alikes, so that you can steal her style for your big day.
Meghan Markle’s wedding dress included a delicate bateau neckline which framed her shoulders beautifully, and a bodice that continued to emphasize her feminine waist. Thanks to impeccable tailoring and the incredible designing of Clare Waight Keller, the ivory satin Givenchy gown framed Meghan’s figure perfectly.
Alan Hannah’s Meghan Markle-esque Wedding Dress
This Alan Hannah dress boasts a definitive Meghan Markle style bateau neckline, along with a beautiful figure hugging shape. The train is similarly long and elegant. In contrast, this dress uses a flattering satin belt around the waist to enhance the feminine shape further.
This dress also differs from Meghan’s in that the arms are ornately decorated with a fine lace and embodied flowers. In keeping with this dress’s more decorative look the material below the waistline reflects a beautiful pearly sheen. This dress is perfect for a bride who wants some of Meghan’s elegance whilst still maintaining some extra grandeur and Kate Middleton style lace sleeves.
Pronovias’ Simple but Elegant Wedding Gown
This beautiful Huarte dress by Pronovias radiates the same natural elegance and delicacy as Meghan’s did. From the front, this dress has a similarly favourable bateau neckline which complements the shoulders by allowing a partial outline of clavicle to show through.
This dress differs from Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress in that in place of Meghan’s modified A-line shape, the Huarte falls more like a sheath dress, which hangs naturally from the body’s frame extenuating natural curves. The back of the dress displays alluring lace which blends naturally into the skin. A flirtatious dress which shares much of Meghan’s simple style.
Pronovias’ Classically Regal Take on Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress
This Pronovias gown sits gorgeously on the frame much like Meghan’s Givenchy, it displays a bateau neckline, long sleeves and a feminine a-line structure. This dress, however, emits a more regal feel than the Duchess of Sussex’s did. The train starts at shoulder height, which gives the illusion of a robe.
Meghan Markle Inspired Wedding Dress by Mikaella
This silhouette-hugging gown by Mikaella imitates many features which can also found in the Givenchy dress. Boasting a similar silk material, this dress also exhibits a stunning bateau neckline and long feminine sleeves.
The beaded belt really sets this dress apart, as does its seductive fit and flare skirt. This curve enhancing skirt is not only a chic and sexy addition to an otherwise very sophisticated dress, but is also quite practical for the bride herself. A fit and flare design offers a looser fit around the legs meaning a bride can walk and dance with more ease.
Charlotte Balbier’s Flattering Wedding Dress
This gorgeous Charlotte Balbier dress is a fashion forward gown designed for the modern bride. Very much like Meghan Markle’s wedding dress, this stunning gown features a bateau neckline and a minimalist elegance.
Unlike the slightly looser fitting dress that Meghan wore, this dress fits the body like a glove, it flatters the feminine figure by narrowing at the waist and opening slightly far beyond the hips so that it flows gracefully as the bride walks. This dress is also sleeveless, giving it a more summery and less formal look, and in doing so also proving that sometimes less really is more. The perfect dress for a modern bride, who values minimalism coupled with elegance.
