Designer Dress Predictions For The Royal Wedding

Ever since the news of the royal engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke all eyes have been on the future princess as to her style choices…

As the countdown to the big day gets underway speculation is mounting as to which designer she will chose for the all important bridal gown-  which all eyes will be on on May 19.

It has been reported she will wear two gowns one to the ceremony and one to the reception? But what will they be like?

In terms of style, Meghan has confessed to loving Carolyn Bessette Kennedy’s wedding style. Caroline wore a very simple Narciso Rodriguez white slip dress when she married John F. Kennedy Jr. While we’re sure Meghan will have to up the glamour and opulence on the day, we’re expecting her to follow suit with a classic yet modern style that’s free of embellishment.

But which lucky designer will be responsible for the already famous gown?

Erdem Moralioglu

The strongest predictions for Meghan Markle’s wedding dress have been for a custom design by Canadian and Turkish fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu. Not only does the designer have Canada in common with Meghan, but she’s also worn many of his lady-like designs in the past.

Ralph & Russo

The other fashion label that royal insiders are pointing to is Ralph & Russo. Originating from Australia, the London-based label was recently featured numerous wedding worthy options including a finale wedding dress that is no doubt worthy of a princess in Pairs fashion shows.

It addition to their wedding-worthy designs, we also know Meghan is already a fan, having worn one of their designs in her engagement photos. The couture house also has a seven-story salon in Mayfair that overlooks Buckingham Palace, so it’s a perfect option for Meghan.

Inbal Dror

According to the Jerusalem Post, Israeli bridal designer, Inbal Dror, was asked to submit a few design sketches by the palace. The designer is famed for his elegant yet sexy aesthetic, counting stars such as Beyonce and Naomi Watts as fans.

Within the three sketches the designer submitted were an A-line design, a full gown with puffed shoulders and a fishtail style.

Roland Mouret

The London based designer Roland Mouret is beloved by stars all around the world for his figure hugging dresses. Meghan Markle is no exception, having worn many of his designs and even striking up a friendship with the designer. While Roland isn’t a bridal designer, one of his dresses could be perfect for Meghan’s reception outfit.

Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

Another tipped designer is Alexander McQueen having previously designed the royal wedding dress for the Duchess of Cambridge, Sarah Burton is naturally a popular prediction for Meghan’s dress as well. Considering how Meghan is happy to break tradition, it is likely Meghan will wear a different designer, but considering how opulent Sarah’s designs are, we’re not 100% ruling it out yet.

Whatever her style of gown is, it reported that she will honour Princess Diana by wearing some of her famed jewels including the possibility that she will wear the Spencer tiara. We have no doubt that Meghan will make a beautiful princess bride!
