How Meghan Markle Broke Royal Tradition with Her Wedding Dress

Meghan Markle Didn’t Wear a British or American Designer for Her Wedding Dress

It wouldn’t be a Meghan Markle wedding if she didn’t at least break one royal tradition. After months of anticipation, the 36-year-old made her grand debut on Saturday morning when she arrived at St. George’s chapel in a modern wedding dress designed by—drumroll please—Givenchy.

The simple-yet-classic wedding dress featured three-quarter-length sleeves, an open bateau neckline, and a slight A-line skirt. The dress itself was made out of pure white silk. Markle accessorized with a 5-meter-long veil made from silk tulle that trailed behind her. The veil’s trim featured hand-embroidered flowers made of silk and organza. Under her veil, the bride wore a tiara from Queen Elizabeth II’s collection. Other bling included earrings and a bracelet from Cartier and a welsh gold ring given to her from the Queen.

As for her dress, Meghan surprised fans when she chose Givenchy, a French fashion house, instead of a British (to honor her new life in the United Kingdom) or American (to honor her roots in the United States) fashion designer.
