When a royal wedding is announced, one of the biggest things everyone wanders about, talks about and looks forward to seeing is the wedding gown. Some of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time are those that were worn for a royal wedding.
Grace Kelly’s royal wedding gown is probably one of the most iconic. Just like Meghan Markle, she too was an American actress who married into royalty. Over the years, there have been many a royal bride donning a stunning gown made worthy of being recorded as iconic but the most iconic of all was none other than Princess Diana’s wedding gown. Hers may have not been to everyone’s taste and quite fashionable for the 80’s, but it will forever be remembered well.
The latest talk of royal wedding dresses comes from the recent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She had a lot to contend with after Kate Middleton’s much anticipated and ultimately perfect wedding dress. Kate Middleton wore a 50’s style gown from Sarah Burton who is creative director for Alexander McQueen. She was the vision of a modern-day princess in her elegant wedding gown.
Meghan Markle’s wedding gown was less traditional and a lot simpler but, stunning and sophisticated nonetheless. Her wedding gown’s timeless simplicity, however, did not mean that it didn’t possess some incredible details. It was designed by Givenchy’s Waight Keller and featured some interesting details like the 53 flowers on her veil to represent the 53 commonwealth countries.
