We’re not quite sure we can wait until the 19th May for a glimpse of what we are sure will be a stunning wedding dress worn by Meghan Markle.
Although no source is quite so confident they know the exact style, there are a few rumours circulating around what ‘the dress’ is going to be like.
Here’s what we have heard so far…
1. She’ll wear not one, but two wedding dresses
Sources ‘close to Meghan’ have predicted earlier this month that the bride will be wearing not one, but two dresses on her big day.
Apparently we should expect a ‘traditional ceremony gown followed by a change of wardrobe into something more ‘glamorous and less restrictive’ for the evening celebration.
2. These are some of the rumoured designers
Towards the end of last year, we saw leaked wedding dress designs by Israeli designer Inbal Dror, but since then, a handful of other designers have been tipped for the post.
Ralph and Russo were on the list after the bride to be was spotted selecting a couture dress from their collection. But then it is also rumoured that Canadian brand Erden are in the shortlist, as could be Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham.

3. We’re expecting a tiara
It’s become a ‘royal wedding tradition’ for the bride to be wedding a tiara adorned to her crown. Expect a display of diamonds, tiara style, placed on the Royal Brides head.
4. She prefers the understated style
According to Cosmopolitan, in a 2016 interview with Glamour, Meghan described her ideal wedding dress as: “very pared down and relaxed. Classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist. I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic. Delphine Manivet and Christos Costarellos are faves of mine for their uniqueness and beauty. And I will always be a fan of Ellie Saab. J. Mendel is spectacular as well, especially for more structural designs.”
Is understated glamour is on the cards?
5. Her celebrity wedding dress inspiration?
Markle said in the same interview that Carolyn Bessette Kennedy’s simple gown was ‘Everything goals’. It was a fine strapped, slinkly white figure hugging gown, without any fuss or embellishments.
