1. The silhouette

The Duchess opted for a slimmer style of wedding dress, the complete opposite of the typical ball gown style usually associated with royal weddings, giving rise to softer, more pared back silhouettes.

3. Simple forms

There’s no doubt that Megan’s dress set a new standard when it came to royal weddings. Clean, and unadorned, the gown made the most of the bride’s natural beauty. And, this should also be the aim of your special dress.

4. The neckline

There is immense variety when it comes to bridal dress necklines, with Bardot styles experiencing steady popularity. Megan’s look also takes a lesson from these, though there’s no need to be subtle, if that’s not what rocks your boat.

5. Nipped in waists

After all those months of dieting (admit it – we all do it!), it’s time to show off your figure! Opt for a gown which will skim your waist in a ‘50s-inspired silhouette. It will definitely have heads turning!

7. Dramatic veils

The veil is the penultimate bridal accessory for your wedding day look, so make it count! Whether you choose to pair it with a small wedding dress train like the Duchess's or a dramatic one for double effect, there's no better way to bring drama to the show and put on a theatrical display which, like the royal wedding, will have everyone hooked!
