Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 2018 wedding is fast approaching, and everyone wants to know who the actress will choose to design her wedding dress and what style of gown it will be. Will it be the ultimate princess wedding dress, with a big, billowing skirt and a glittering bodice? Something more modest and classic, like her sister-in-law's? Or maybe a contemporary design that’s perfect for an independent, modern-day princess?
Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to unleash your inner royal too, with a suitably regal gown that makes you feel every inch the princess. Bridal trends may come and go, but it‘s hard to deny every bride wants to feel like a princess on her big day, whatever her style!

Princess Tatiana and Prince Nikolaos of Greece
It was a suitably lavish affair when Prince Nikolaos of Greece married his bride, Tatiana. The bride wore an elegant lace gown that could almost be mistaken for our stunning Penny dress, with it’s flattering A-line shape and beaded Guipure lace. Style this dress with one of our Amixi jackets for the complete look.
Alessandra de Osma and Prince Christian of Hanover
Alessandra de Osma's Peruvian wedding was a real-life fairy tale after she first met her prince when she was his tour guide during one of his visits to Peru, her native country. Her dress featured a high neckline, three-quarter-length lace sleeves and a long train. Our Leah dress is the perfect match, with its A-line skirt, delicate lace appliqués and attractive, scooped back. The demure embellished sleeves perfectly offset the revealing back detail to look sexy and sophisticated, all rolled into one!
Princess Marie and Prince Joachim of Denmark
Princess Marie of Denmark looked every inch the princess in her dress, with its classic full skirt and sweetheart neckline. She also wore an exquisite cathedral-length lace veil. Our gorgeous Emmy dress recreates the look perfectly with its ball gown skirt covered in pretty beaded lace.
Wear it with our stunning Halle jacket, below, and a suitably regal veil for the perfect finishing touches.
Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden
Princess Sofia married Prince Carl Philip of Sweden at the Royal Palace in Stockholm in June 2015. The bride’s exquisite gown featured intricate lace detailing and contrasting white tones. Get the look with our fabulous Eliana dress, with its layers of soft tulle and attractive illusion sleeves. The beaded lace appliqués also give it a luxurious sparkle from every angle!
Crown Princess of Greece, Marie Chantal, and Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece
For her wedding in 1995, Marie Chantal wore a pearl-encrusted, ivory silk wedding dress with flattering ruching, a high lace neckline and demure sleeves. Our strapless Colette dress, paired with our pretty Caprice jacket, is the perfect way to emulate her style. We love the way the satin skirt is ruched across the hips before flowing out into a beautiful train.
This is also a great way to create two looks in one. You can wear the vintage lace jacket for the daytime then remove it for the evening to reveal the glittering bodice in all its glory!
Princess Claire and Prince Felix of Luxembourg
Princess Claire wore an absolutely stunning lace-covered dress with a sumptuous full train. So the obvious match for this glamorous look was our beautiful Paris dress. This fit and flare style is covered with shimmering metallic-trimmed lace and the beautiful skirt has plenty of volume thanks to the clever ‘godet’ design.
At the back, we love the attractive symmetry of the appliqués. Simply pair with our full-length London veil for a truly regal look!
Princess Victoria of Sweden and Daniel Westling
The Swedish princess wore an ivory, off-the-shoulder gown for her wedding in 2010. It also had a five-metre train! While it can’t quite compete with the princess’s train we think our Felicia dress is the perfect match. It's simple, understated ruched satin is very flattering and the attractive straps sit just off the shoulder, giving a little extra coverage and comfort. There’s also the perfect amount of princess-style sparkle at the hip!
Princess Claire and Prince Laurent of Belgium
Princess Claire wore an off-the-shoulder gown and a Brussels-lace veil that was first worn by Laurent’s great-grandmother in 1877. Our classic Joanna dress, worn with our exquisite Kensington jacket, recreates the look almost exactly!
Joanna has a classic A-line shape that flatters most figures. Worn with this off-the-shoulder lace jacket, with its intricately embroidered Chantilly lace and scalloped edge, it's the perfect match for the Belgian princess’s look.
Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Christopher O’Neill
For their wedding in 2013, this royal bride wore a super romantic princess dress, decked out with silk organdies and ivory Chantilly lace, layered over a full skirt. Get the look with our ravishing Nicola gown, with its subtle illusion neckline and delicate floral appliqués.
The beautiful free-flowing tulle skirt is just the icing on the (royal) wedding cake!
Beatrice Borromeo and Pierre Casiragh of Monaco
Princess Beatrice had a lot to live up to when she married Pierre Casiraghi, grandson of Grace Kelly, as the groom's grandmother wore one of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time! Beatrice actually wore three dresses during her wedding celebrations but our favourite was her second, an Armani white silk gown with a V neckline, pleated silk tulle skirt and wide contemporary straps. Our Francine dress has a very similar look and feel. It combines a deep V-neck with wide straps for extra coverage and support. The pleated tulle skirt is also nipped in at the waist, with delicate floral lace appliqués adding a pretty feminine touch.
