With last month’s New York Bridal Fashion Week fresh in our minds, Meghan Markle’s aisle style reminded us of the throes of minimalist wedding dresses that appeared on the runways for Spring 2019 collections. We’ve already seen a rise in the number of soonlyweds seeking minimalist designs, and just as Kate Middleton’s long sleeve lace gown inspired a love for lace, we expect Meghan’s chic bridal style will do the same.
We loved everything about the new Duchess' bridal look, from the understated smoky eye and low updo to the minimal accessories, which beautifully complemented the dress designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. But it wasn’t just her ceremony dress that channeled the minimalism trend — her second dress, a high-neck silk gown by Stella McCartney followed suit. So because we're still swooning over all-things royal, we've rounded up 12 stunning gowns from Spring 2019 collections that prove the minimalist trend isn't going anywhere any time soon.
