Meghan Markle Perfects the Understated Bridal Look
After months of speculation, Meghan Markle's wedding day look, and the designer behind it, has been revealed! Meghan went classic and understated for her ceremony dress, donning a bateau neckline and 3/4 sleeve designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, who happens to be the first female creative director of the iconic brand.
Meghan accessorized with simple stud earrings, the Queen Mary's filigree tiara, and a decadent 16-foot veil.
According to the palace: “The dress epitomizes a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952.”
“True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the slender sculpted waist. The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity.”
She looks absolutely stunning, and I, for one, am excited to see what her reception dress is going to look like!
As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born.
I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
