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?

Yes she has.

Now to see if she pics an American, Canadian or English designer.

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...

Pranter 11-27-2017 05:30 PM

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.

I looked earlier...perhaps you can point out what ones you think would work FM?

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.

Pranter 11-27-2017 05:45 PM

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.

I agree...

CyrilVladisla 11-27-2017 06:14 PM

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

I love the bottom ...but even with the higher neckline I am not a fan of the top.

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.

Princess Larisa 11-27-2017 09:39 PM

A few of my favorite royal wedding dresses, Id be happy with anything similar modified for Meghan:

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

Zaira 11-28-2017 12:25 AM

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. :flowers:

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
