We are officially just days away from the royal wedding, and speculation continues to swirl around the gown Megan Markle will step out in this Saturday at Windsor Castle. In the mean time, we’re bringing it back to some of our absolute favorite royal wedding gowns of all time, and showing how you can recreate these iconic looks for your special day!
Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill of Sweden (2013)
Working closely with legendary designer Valentino, Princess Madeleine of Sweden was wed in a timelessly regal gown showcasing a Chantilly lace neckline, accented with demure cap sleeves. Evoking a similar feel with beautiful, embroidered lace overlays on a Bateau neckline bodice and cap sleeves, our Style 5403 is ideal choice for the bride looking to deliver a quintessentially romantic vibe on her big day.

Princess Claire and Prince Felix of Luxembourg (2013)
For her debut as Princess of Luxembourg, Claire Lademacher went full-on couture with her Elie Saab designed gown. The Princess took her walk down the aisle in a gorgeous gown featuring a delicate illusion neckline and lace floral motifs throughout. Our Leighton gown similarly plays on focal points of an intricately beaded bodice and delicate off-the-shoulder illusion neckline. Factor in its long sleeves with lace details and a modified A-line silhouette, and you can also have a picture-perfect gown for your royal debut!

Princess Charlene and Prince Albert II of Monaco (2011)
The epitome of sophistication in her Armani Privé silk gown, Charlene Wittstock wowed the world at her royal ceremony to wed Prince Albert II of Monaco. Sure to stand apart from her mother-in-law Grace Kelly’s legendary gown, Charlene entrusted couturier Armani for a modern and fresh design. If polished and sleek is the look you’re after, our Louise gown showcases a similar feminine off-the-shoulder neckline, cap sleeves and classic fit-to-flare silhouette.

Our Style 6805 inspires a similar feel with a v-neck, wrap style bodice accented by a flowing net skirt, making this boho beauty equally as ideal for an outdoor or destination wedding!
