Are you getting ready to go down the aisle and still haven’t decided on the style of your wedding dress? How about you leave aside the embroidered busts and laced dresses, and choose a simple and elegant wedding dress without extra frills? Follow in the footsteps of Meghan Markle and choose a modest, chic and elegant wedding dress.
Surprising everyone who was expecting a more extravagant bridal look, Meghan Markle chose a simple yet incredibly chic silk dress with three-quarter sleeves and an open neck cut which embraced her shoulders. The gown, which stood out with the hand embroidered veil Meghan Markle wore, was a Clare Waight Keller creation, the known chief designer of the French fashion house Givenchy.
The second dress Meghan chose to wear to the wedding party was characterised by the same elegance and simplicity as the first. The British designer Stella McCartney designed the second dress. The white halter neck dress, also in a minimal line that emphasised the shoulders and open back was impressive. The shoes Meghan chose were a pair of classic Aquazurra pumps with baby blue soles.
So if Meghan’s elegance, simplicity and sophisticated aesthetics that literally made her shine on her wedding day impress you, you had better follow in her footsteps!
TIPS The design of the wedding dress may vary depending on your personal taste as well as the time of the year you are getting married. For a winter or autumn wedding choose an imposing long-sleeved white wedding dress with a neckline and amaze your guests with an impressive open back design. If you are having a spring or summer wedding, then a sleeveless dress with halter neck or an impressive bust could be the perfect choice! Don’t think that deep slits that follow the gown’s folds are not elegant.
Add small decorative items such as embroidery or a belt made from the same fabric or even discreet gemstones on the waistline, the neckline or on the outline of the open back. Have in mind that simple lined wedding dresses emit all their elegance when combined with long, impressive veils.
When choosing a simple wedding dress, you should always have in mind that your entire appearance should follow the same simplicity. Instead of striking ponytails and elaborate hairstyles, choose low ponytails, chic low buns or airy and vague hairstyles. If you are planning on using hairpieces they should also be on the same line. The same applies to bridal makeup. It shouldn’t be exaggerated. The bridal makeup must make you look natural and radiant!
