Why is her wedding gown so special?

When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in May 2018, royal watchers around the world marveled at the wedding dress of Meghan Markle and the fact it deserved a big award. Women’s Wear has tapped designers from around the world to outline what they would design for the task of designing Meghan’s royal wedding dress. Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton, a British designer led by Alexander McQueen.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton were the bridesmaids of the decade. They topped a new list of most popular wedding dresses in 2010, with Markle’s chic Givenchy veil thwarting the No.    

According to research by the gift specialist Find Me a Gift, which crunched the numbers in the search for celebrity wedding dresses, the Duchess of Sussex conducted an average of 21,900 monthly searches in the UK during her 2017 wedding to Prince Harry. The Duchess of Cambridge generated 21,500 average monthly searches in the UK when she gave her ‘yes’ to Prince William in 2011. The second highest searched was Virgil Abloh’s white off-the-shoulder dress worn by Hailey Bieber when she tied the knot in 2018 with Justin Bieber. Ariana Grande had several looks rounding out the list for her surprise ceremony.    

Royal watchers at St George Chapel in Windsor, where Meghan and Harry married on May 19, 2018, saw a stunning silk gown with a train extending to a soft, round pleated, padded petticoat made of triple silk organza. The dress featured an open neckline and cinched waist. Slim three-quarter sleeves added a touch of refined modernity.   

In 2011, Kate decided that British designer Sarah Burton, who ran a 50-strong design team with Alexander McQueen, would create an iconic and timeless look for her vow on April 29. Meghan added a personal touch to the couple, including a winter-sweet plant in Kensington Palace grounds in front of Nottingham Cottage and the flower of her home state of California poppy. The delicate, cathedral-length veil was made of silk and tulle and featured trims, and hand-embroidered flowers from 53 Commonwealth counties threaded through organza.

The Duchess of Cambridges’ white V-neck dress features French Chantilly lace and an English bodice, skirt, and clothing. It is superimposed by a long-sleeved, lace-back train that flows 9 feet behind her as she walks down the aisle in Westminster Abbey. The ivory and white satin skirt is designed to mimic the opening of a pad of flowers on the hips and flows to the floor. The back of the dress features 58 Gazar organza-covered buttons fastened with rouleau loops.    

Much to Chloe Savage’s delight and relief that her daughter had such a big surprise. “I was talking to people about William and Kate’s 10th birthday this year,” she recalled, “and on that day, it was a case of thanking God they did. She didn’t know me for months and was very upset when I told her that her mum would dress up as a princess.
