We’re still in our feels over the Royal Wedding this weekend. That dress!
We loved the simplicity and chicness of Meghan Markle’s dress that really made a statement on her big day.
While some women will be setting out to achieve her exact look on their big day, it has inspired us to showcase five bridal trends we are loving right now that can still give you that Meghan style vibe with your own individual twist…
#1: Statement veils
While veils are traditional in their own right, they have been updated this season with beautiful statement details. It’s truly all about details and while Meghan opted for a scalloped hem with floral embroidery details, you can go glitzy with glittery embellishments or classic with pearls.
Check out this Floral Beaded Scallop Edge Cathedral Veil from David’s Bridal.
#2: Modest silhouettes
Modesty is back and this year, it looks fabulous with the high necks and sleeve details we are seeing. Meghan went simplistic with her long sleeves and it looks so elegant and polished. Those days of it being hard to find a wedding dress with sleeves is over.
Check out the following plus size wedding dresses with long sleeves that are sure to have you feeling like Cinderella on your big day:
Morilee by Madeline Gardner Kosette Wedding Dress, Sizes 16 to 32
Taffeta Plus Size Ball Gown Wedding Dress at David’s Bridal, Sizes 16W to 26W
Lace Illusion Wedding Gown at Kiyonna, Sizes 0 to 5X
ASOS EDITION CURVE BRIDAL Lace Long Sleeve Crop Top Maxi Dress, Sizes 12 to 26
#3: Shoulder Action
One of the best ways to show off some sexy but not overdo it is to show off them shoulders. Meghan opted for a boat neckline that showed them off but if you’re a fan of off the shoulder styles, they are a big trend this season, including the classic strapless silhouette.
Here’s 3 plus size wedding dresses that will give lots of shoulder action as you strut down the aisle:
Morilee by Madeline Gardner Muriella Wedding Dress, Sizes 16 to 32
ASOS EDITION Curve Floral Lace Bandeau Maxi Wedding Dress, Sizes 14 to 24
Watters Wtoo Savannah Gown, Sizes 00 to 32W
#4: Structured fabrics
THE SKETCH: Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex wore a #Givenchy Haute Couture gown designed by @ClareWaightKeller. The pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The graphic open bateau neckline gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the slender sculpted waist. #RoyalWedding #MeghanMarkle #WeddingDress
Meghan opted for a more structured fabric with no lace and had brides-to-be chatting about how amazing and polished the subtle but chic fabric looked against her gorgeous veil and tiara. Structured fabrics and lines are back this season… it’s all about chic and clean.
