Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress Reveal

All About The Design 

After months of whispers and theories, we now have all the details on Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. The bride wore the Parisian label Givenchy, designed by Claire Waight Keller the first woman to head the esteemed French fashion house as Artistic Director. Prior to taking the helm at Givenchy, Ms. Keller served as creative head of Pringle of Scotland and Chloé -- globally influential fashion houses. 

Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex Meghan wore a gorgeous full length gown made of structured, silk duchess satin with a boatneck collar and long, straight sleeves. Her silk tulle veil consisted of 53 embroidered flowers representing all the countries in the commonwealth. The full length veil was 16 feet long and helped to create a dramatic entrance before she said “I do.” Although this gown was not what we imagined the Princess walking down the isle in, her dress was arguably one of the most elegant bridal looks in royal history.

We Have Only Positive Things to Say!

Since the big reveal, negative comments have whirled the internet stating that the Duchess' dress did not properly fit her and appeared too large for her. These comments have caught our attention because obviously these statements are offensive to a designer like Givenchy. Meghan Markle’s dress was intricately made in order to hug her body in all the right places. According to Harpers Bazaar, Givenchy workers spent hundreds of hours diligently sewing and washing their hands every 30 minutes to ensure pristine tulle and threads. After doing some research, we found that the designer, Claire Waight Keller, actually drew inspiration for her dress design from historical royals.
