Which designers are contenders for Meghan Markle’s wedding dress?

The bride to be of Prince Harry is already known for her modern and understated fashion sense, and now the wedding is actually happening, speculation has turned to who will design Meghan Markle’s dress for the big occasion.

Personal contacts

One of Ms Markle’s good friends is Misha Nonoo, who is established in the fashion scene in New York. When Ms Markle made her first official appearance in public at the Invictus Games, it was one of her pal’s designs that Ms Markle wore. Nonoo would be a loyal and discrete choice, but her strengths as a designer appear to be concentrated in separates and sleek tailored outfits. As she is American, Ms Markle might choose a US designer such as Oscar de la Renta, who has designed for many celebrity weddings.

British choices

Jenny Packham is British, has a sterling pedigree in creating wedding dresses, and would be sure to produce something glamorous and appropriate. Alexander McQueen is another option, and this label produced Kate Middleton’s beautiful dress. Emilia Wickstead is another UK designer who is an emerging favourite with the society crowd.

Most likely to …

Canadian-Turkish designer, Erdem, has already proved popular with Ms Markle. His frocks are pretty and modern, and he already dresses celebrities and the Middleton sisters. Fashion insiders say this label is perfectly poised to produce a wedding dress for Ms Markle that ticks all the right boxes.

People are curious about all aspects of Ms Markle’s wedding, and this report from The Sun has more details about the plans, including that the wedding will take place in Windsor. A country setting can be lovely for a wedding. If you are looking around for a Gloucestershire wedding hotel venue, it would be a good idea to look at options such as http://www.thespeechhouse.co.uk/weddings/. An expert venue like this can give you ideas about what to expect.

The royal wedding is due to take place in May, so speculation will continue to mount about who gets the designing job of 2018. Based on her previous style, however, it seems almost guaranteed that Ms. Markle will choose a designer who will create something spectacular and memorable to suit a modern bride, with a nod to tradition and the family that she is marrying into.
