I hope we get to see her wear a reception gown like Kate did.


I would love if Sarah Burton designs her gown.

Has her designer friend Misha Nonoo done any gowns?

I had a look at the Ralph & Russo Bridal gowns, and they seem to me almost wilfully bizarre.. far more about 'the dress' than about the Woman wearing it..
Meghan seems a far more assured 'dresser' than a Woman who'd go for that...

I can't see her wearing a R&R dress. It doesn't even seem to suit her style. I don't think it's the look she will go for at a royal wedding either.

Look at their 2016 Spring Haute Couture line. Several of the gowns are absolutely stunning and perfect for a royal wedding.

the most recent collection on the R&R website, though, seems much less...grounded in this world.

In that interview, Meghan said she liked clean, simple lines, but she also named a pair of designers whose websites currently show mostly ethereal, boho sorts of things with layer-upon-layer of fluff and lace. Depending on what they had out when she made that comment, they've either changed their style or she likes a pretty wide range of styles. I'm not really sure what to expect from her.

I took a look. I don't see anything that would work as is--but there were a 2-3 that with a few tweaks could work.

I'm sure she's having a dress designed for her so whoever it is will certainly take into account the restrictions or parameters they need to use for a dress that will work for a BRF wedding.

Do you believe that Meghan will select an unknown designer like Lady Diana Spencer did?

I love that first gown. Wouldn't mind at all seeing Meghan in something similar.

I don't really have any particular designer or style in mind. I just hope to see her in something really elegant with a bit of flair/grandness.

That last one - Elie Saab - is my all time favorite royal wedding gown.

Yes tweaks will need to be made. I mean, Kate's dress was McQueen, but the House was known for its dramatic clothing and Kate pared a gown from that.

Meghan has a lot of natural charisma and charm and can pull off a sleek but dramatic gown with tweaks from the likes of R&R who are compared to old school McQueen in many circles.

Some examples of R&R that can work with tweaks. Meghan mentions Elie Saab as a favorite and these gowns have similar details to ES.

I would love if she wore a gown like Mette Marit, Maxima, Mathilde, Stephanie, or Victoria.

Those are gorgeous, all of them, though I especially like the first on the list.

I agree that Meghan will go simple and classic, a la Charlene of Monaco, or Mette-Marit of Norway.

I seriously hope not. There will be enough comparisons between Kate and Meghan without Meghan wearing the same designer on her wedding day. It will give way to a whole 'who did it better' for way too long to come.

Yes, I love some of these suggestions and would be great to see similar.

I love the whole idea of a streamline front and a wow back. A way to draw attention instead of simply a huge train, as she walks down the aisle.

Agree with Lady Nimue, this is my favorite
