The Royal Wedding is nearly here and I’m so excited to see what Meghan wears for her big day! I’ve put together five of my favourite gowns from the boutique that would be suitable for a royal wedding, read on to achieve a regal look with a touch of glam.
A classic fit and flare style with applique Venice lace and an illusion Sabrina neckline, it’s the back that makes this dress a little bit daring whilst still retaining an air of decorum. Lace? Check, Buttons? Check, Sweeping train? Check! It has everything it needs to be a right royal number and the lace detail on the back reveal is simply stunning.
A Justin Alexander number, it’s the sleeves that immediately say ‘royalty’. Reminiscent of Grace Kelly and even of Princess Kate, this figure hugging Chantilly lace covered fishtail brings the princess gown into the modern day in a beautiful champagne ivory hue, with a deep V shaped back and vintage illusion Sabrina neckline to add just a touch of drama to such a pretty demure dress.
With a name fit for a princess, Victoria combines an applique lace bodice and basque waist with elegant embellishment and a romantic full tulle skirt with lace trimmed cathedral length train. Flattering, floaty and the sort of gown you want to gather in your hands and run across the shore wearing, my favourite bit about this utterly royal number is the illusion back, lace neckline and the pretty buttons. It certainly isn’t a dress for the shy bride, she’s a showstopper!
One of my personal favourites, Eva by Sincerity is a fabulous fitted dress with an incredible mandarin collar and of-the-shoulder lace detail. But that is not what is going to truly steal the show. When you walk down the aisle and guests see the back of the dress, that is the moment of pure magic. The deep illusion back and lace applique detail is where the wow factor lies, really showing that you can be sophisticated yet sexy at the same time. Finished with an elegant layer of sparkle, Eva catches the light as you move, making her even more irresistible.
A sweeping fishtail gown with a traditional sweetheart neckline, the ivory nude shade is incredibly flattering and it’s a classic option with a sexy strapless twist for those daring to bare their décolleté. Embellished with beaded Venice lace and accentuated with Chantilly lace, this Justin Alexander gown will make you feel glamorous, regal and romantic in equal measure.
So there you have some of my favourite dresses for a modern yet magnificent royal celebration. Whether a castle or a manor house, a beach wedding or an elopement, every bride deserves to feel like a princess on her big day. And each of these has a twist that turns a timeless dress into something with a bit more sex appeal, or should I say “Megs appeal”. I can’t wait to see what Meghan wears on her big day, let the countdown to the royal wedding commence!
