I think Kate's gown was full enough - it just wasn't long enough, imo. It got lost in the Abbey because Kate chose a short cathedral length train instead of a royal/monarch train.

St. George's may not hold as many people, but it still needs a gown with some presence to it - otherwise Meghan will get lost. She's 5'7", which is why I don't see her wearing a cupcake of a dress, but she does need something with grandeur.

Whatever happens I just pray Meghan doesn't choose a chapel length gown. No. Just ... no.

Well there you go, grandeur is a proper word

Grandeur speaks to the design, the detail, the impact it makes. 'Big' describes size. A sheath dress may be grand, but its never going to be big, just like you bling out a smart car it may be fancy, but its still going to be small.


The difference for some people is what 'grandeur means'. Many of the gowns posted like the pronovias are grand. They aren't over the top, covered in lace or bling, but they make a statement. They make a statement in design, in architecture, in details like the statement back to them. Add to that a tiara and an amazing veil, and it would be grand.

We can look at royal dresses like Charlene, Victoria, and older ones like Silvia, and know a royal wedding gown can be quite simple, rely on architectural detail, and still make a great statement.

Whatever gown Meghan chooses,.I think the main concern is a design that will allow her to cleanly execute a curtsy to the Queen afternoon she and Harry are married. The skirt can't be too full where she dips down it doesn't look like it's swallowing her whole; and not so form fitting there is a risk of it ripping on the attempt. The curtsy is one of the money shots for that day so I think Meghan would take that into account.

Another reason nothing too fitted waist down. Don't want any Pippa moments.

I remember reading that the present Duchess of Kent stepped back into the folds of her dress, in order to curtsy to the Queen.

I know I would ! I am sure Meghan will find Kate a great source of help during the coming months.

They have to get all the support people hired (personal secretary etc) pretty soon.

My guess is, since she has known for some time they were going to marry next year she already has a good idea of the type of dress and who she wants to design it. Along with the flowers etc etc.

I imagine Kate would be a great source for ins and outs on a great many things. It will be nice for them to be able to talk and share things together.

Perhaps instead of lace or beading, some embroidery?

Honestly, I can see her wearing something similar to Princess Elizabetta Maria of Belgium's wedding dress.

What is for sure is I can't wait to see Harry's face when he sees her in the wedding dress. Anyone want to take a bet that he's gonna shed a tear that day?

This dress - http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...73_634x423.jpg - I think the scale and proportions of the gown and veil would be perfect.

Yup! And honestly, the dress is simple enough, but still romantic. Meghan's style often is more rounded and softer edges and harsh angled styles.
