The Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan Markle and how to take inspiration for your wedding outfit

The Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Saturday May 19th 2018

 

Did you see the stunning Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? I was equally enthralled by the wedding guests’ arrivals to see what they were wearing.  I have compiled a list of the most eye-catching celebrities further down this blog, and some tips on how you can incorporate their look into your own wedding outfits if you are the lucky recipient of an invite this year.

I felt like it was as intimate an occasion as a royal wedding could be whilst still being inclusive due to it being held at Windsor Castle which enabled the joyous crowds to line the long route to the chapel. 

The gorgeous Meghan Markle arrived stepping elegantly out of the Phantom Rolls Royce wearing a stunning creation by Clare Waight Keller who had earlier in 2017 been appointed the first female artist director of Givenchy — a brand Markle had been a fan of for many years. While a French couture house may not have been the most obvious choice, Keller ticked the most important box — a Birmingham-born Brit who could fly the flag for British fashion at the most-watched royal wedding ever. – HarpersBazaar.com

Now for those showstopping guests, below from left to right: Serena Williams in a gorgeous blush pink Versace ensemble.  Oprah Winfrey looked amazing in blush tone dress with matching shoes and hat.  Apparently Oprah had a very last minute change of heart with her beige outfit, deciding it was a “no no” colour for the wedding photos so Stella McCartney’s team worked over night on Friday to get the new  dress ready for the wedding!  Oprah’s beautiful hat was a Phillip Treacy creation which had been in her wardrobe since 2005; only new feathers were added for this occasion.  (Stella McCartney got a second look-in on the wedding as she designed Meghan’s halterneck evening dress).  Gina Torres, Meghan’s co star, chose a red and white embroidered tulle dress from Costarellos’ Spring 2018 collection topped off with soft pink hat.   Joss Stone wore a floral number with a cream fascinator to finish it off.  She also carried a pink scarf/stole which I think really added a touch of elegance.

 

 

 

Here are some equivalent dresses you can find on the high street or on line: from left to right: Calinda soft pink Ted Baker Bardot dress £189 at houseoffraser.co.uk,

Biba ruffle dress in blush pink also at houseoffraser.co.uk  Red lace plunge fishtail dress £45 at missguided.co.uk and the Ivory floral print hem dress £69 from sosander.co.uk

 

 

Why not imitate Joss Stone and hold your scarf? Or another trick to look chic is to tie it around the handles of your handbag.  What about trying the look with the Frida Kahlo design and have your partner wear the matching pocket square for a winning combination? There are many other mens and ladies designs to choose from at shopblueflamingo.com.

For me, the prize for best-dressed guest was carried off by George and Amal Clooney.  George wore a tie and pocket square in gold tones which matched his wife’s stunning golden yellow dress.  It goes to show how powerful the little details can be – choose the right accessory and you can truly stand out from the crowd.  The dress below right is from River Island.  Bottom left Champagne ladies silk scarf from shopblueflamingo.com and bottom right gold pocket square also by shopblueflamingo.com

Thank you for reading.  I hope you enjoyed this blog.  As always, I love to hear your comments.  Please leave them below.   Who were your “best” dressed celebrities or guests at the wedding? What did you like about the Royal Wedding?  What did you not like?
