Royal Wedding Gown of 2018

May 19, 2018

The big day is finally here and we are all excited and ready  to see Meghan Markle in her wedding Gown.

The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle May 19th, 2018 has been creating quite a buzz internationally as the entire world will be watching. A major part of the buzz is definitely about Meghan’ s gown and reception dress which has caused quite a stir as the designer has been kept a secret.

Meghan decided to do two dresses, as did Kate Middleton before her in 2011. The ceremony dress which is said to be heavily beaded and hand stitched reportedly took quite a bit of time and manpower. It is estimated to cost over $100,000 which Prince Harry and his family will cover.

 

After all the speculations of who might be designing the dress, with rumored contenders being #Erdem, #RalphandRusso, #StewartParvin, #AlexanderMcQueen or even #RolandMouret, a close friend of Meghan’s we now know the pick was Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy, a British designer.

As expected the dress is sleek  and elegantly designed, off shoulder with sleeves and lace detail. The Tiara on loan by the queen is a beautiful addition.

Meghan reportedly hinted at wearing a more sophisticated dress for the evening reception which is said to have brought tears to her eyes once she saw it.

It is also so white and elegantly designed by Stella McCartney with a high neck while showing her shoulders.

For her wedding to Prince William on April 29th 2011, Kate Middleton wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Kate worked closely with Sarah  to fashion the design of the dress which was a combination of both modernity and tradition to depict the artistic vision that characterizes Alexander McQueen.

 

In 1981 Harry’s mother, Princess Diana of Wales wore a wedding gown by David Emanuel, a Welsh fashion designer and co designer of Elizabeth Emanuel. He made a surprising arrival at Windsor for Harry and Meghan’s wedding just before the big day, which left many wondering if he was the selected designer for Meghan’s gown.

 

Princess Elizabeth’s wedding dress was worn by the future Queen Elizabeth 11 at her wedding to Philip Mountbatten Duke of Edinburgh in Westminster Abbey on 20th  November 1947. It was designed by Norman Hartnell and was made of Satin.

 

During those days there was a rationing of clothing so the material had to be purchased with ration coupons. Hartnell’s style was reported to be embroidery and he loved working with soft, swaying materials especially chiffon, lustrous silks and tulle.

The dress was made of Damascus Prokar, had a high neckline with a tailored bodice and a short train.
