Sources say she had her first dress fitting this weekend

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit children at Star Hub community centre in Wales

They weren’t together much last weekend. The reason: my sources tell me Meghan’s first wedding dress fitting was this past weekend! I’m told she’s not yet decided on a specific dress but the options were definitely narrowed down.

Based on how she looked in that boatneck jacket today - she definitely needs to consider a boatneck style neckline.

Ok first off I hope no one spoils the surprise of finding out who the designer is on the wedding day.

Secondly I REALLY REALLY want to see a boatneck with the delicate collar bones exposed like in this blazer/top today. It really does look perfect on her.

Yes. Satin boat neckline top with a tulle skirt to give it a bit of airiness and a belt in A-line style. Perhaps a bit of embelishment belt and on the skirt.

*That* is what I don't want to see at all. What a letdown that was (for me).
I agree with this - although if a gown has some amazing architectural details that bring drama then okay. But I think a boatneck gown with 3/4 sleeves, a modified a-line skirt with a very dramatic train and some crystal/embroidery embellishment on the shoulders going partly down the sleeves would be pretty...

That gown one of the British designers drew - the one with beaded lined cutouts in creamy white? Ugh - let me find and link it - would be gorgeous...

Here it is (front): https://www.popsugar.com/fashion/pho...ne-Castigliano

And back: https://www.popsugar.com/fashion/pho...031/Back-Dress

Of course, the back would need to be modified for modesty - but I really like this dress... It's hard to tell from the sketch though - but those sleeves aren't lace to me - they are a sheer net with beading and delicate embroidery.

Disregard all the lace....love the neckline and sleeve.

Mmmmm too plain still and the neckline needs to be more straight across not as rounded. A scoop back would work well though...if they can work it where it stays up.

Yeah a neckline like that would be really nice. It'll be in May so people are getting excited for the summer and starting to dress like it. A neckline like that would be more towards the summery vibe without the typical open back or sheer applique top

Agree that with her small chest and lovely collarbones, a boat neck style would really suit her. I'm not normally a fan of boat necks, but the jacket she wore to Wales today looked great on her.

I like this dress as well, especially the skirt. Pair it with a boat neck top and more dramatic veil and I think we have a real winner.

The issue with the boat neck style, is the shoulders. I see people fussing about a 'modest back' (a bit of back is not immodest IMO but okay) but forgetting that for the Anglican ceremony, her shoulders are meant to be covered. She doesn't have to have sleeves, but she is meant to have shoulders covered. Some of these show a lot more then the collar bone.

The satin ones which are sleeveless, but at least cover the top of her shoulders, seem the most plausible option for boat neck style.

I do hope if she has lace she does the opposite of Kate, and goes full lace. Not another 'lace sleeves/top dress. A vintage full lace covered dress would be a better option. But hoping none.

However, I am going to disagree about a boatneck collar. Not my cup-of-tea. I'd go with a square neck over the boatneck. I still think a sculptured neckline like Letizia's would suit her, with a gorgeous very delicate splay of diamonds in a necklace, matching a delicate tiara and earrings. No blusher, or cape, but a modest train and veil coming out from the back of her up-do hair.

Color scheme may be gold since that is her preference.

Just a casual check on Pinterest shows wonderful boat neck and even slightly off the shoulder look. And it's worth remembering that should she wear a slightly scooped or v neck at the back, check out the back of HGD Stephanie's wedding gown, just lovely.

Thanks for sharing. I like this one a lot with the see-through lace pattern on sleeves and bodice:

And the Stephanie dress is simple but quite lovely.

The designer of Meghan's wedding dress is rumored to be Stella McCartney.

Not sure how I feel about that, since I generally do not care for her clothes.

We are going to hear a lot of rumors about who the designer is. However regardless who she picks, they are going to create a design for her with her input.
