Now that it’s been a whole month since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel and became HRH The Duchess of Sussex – we are only now finding ourselves able to answer the dozens of e-mails in our inbox (we love them, keep them coming!).
One of the more popular questions we’ve received is how brides-to-be can MirrorMeg Meghan’s classic bridal style – but without the royal price tag. Fear not! With the help of our team of stylists, we’ve scoured some of our favourite budget resources and pulled together several options for you.
The Ceremony Dress
Meghan wore a custom Clare Wight Keller for Givenchy dress, a style evoking classic lines, minimal detailing and a clean, fresh look. While the dress has not been universally adored, one thing we can say for sure is that it’s very much Meghan’s taste – with a large dash of royal subtlety included.
The final touch to Meghan’s wedding day look was the addition of Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Meghan by The Queen. We hope it’s one she will get to borrow again as it was a stunning choice for her.
OK, so it’s probably not reasonable to assume that all of us could whip out to Cartier to pick up a pair of these stunners for our own weddings. But there are many options out there to get the same look for much (much) less.
With a long wedding dress, Meghan’s custom Givenchy shoes did not get a chance to really be seen other than a few glimpses as she made her way down the steps with Harry – but we imagine them to be quite plain white satin shoes.
The Evening Dress
Meghan’s second dress of her wedding day, for a private reception held in the evening, was slinky, sexy and all together a different look than the dress millions had seen earlier that day. This dress was, in our view, much more “Meghan”.
