Meghan Markle Wears Pink to Make the Prince Wink

Jul 11, 2018

Recently it has been noticed that Meghan Markle has only worn pink and white since the Royal Wedding, and Karen Haller, an applied colour psychology practitioner, has been quoted saying that the Duchess of Sussex’s new wardrobe reveals her happiness with Prince Harry. Ms Heller said: “She’s sub-consciously communicating through colour that she’s clearly in love. Soft pinks communicate the nurturing, compassionate, caring side of love.”

This has got Ellis Bridals thinking, how can our Ellis Bridals’ brides signal to their intendeds their feelings throughout the wedding? Of course, the wedding is a very big indication of one’s feelings towards their partner, but our Ellis Bridals fashion experts have been researching ways in which Ellis Bridals’ brides can incorporate very personal details and write their own personal love letter through their Big Day using the dress, accessories, bridesmaids, and wedding venue decorations.


A particular colour, just like the Duchess of Sussex, is a great way to declare your love. You could pick the groom’s favourite colour and intersperse it throughout the wedding. If your groom loves blue you could have blue decorations at your venue, thread blue ribbons around the guests’ chairs, have your bridesmaids wear blue and match the groomsmen’s pocket flowers to your bouquet. But the icing on the cake will always be the bride and her Ellis Bridals wedding dress. Ellis Bridals believe that layered slip dress in ivory would look stunning with some blue accents. Although the real beauty in this dress is in its sheer versatility, a dress that offers the option of letting the appliqués sit atop the coloured slip or remove it and the lace will create an almost magical second-skin effect. Pair with a blue hair accessory, blue flowers and have your bridesmaids in these stunning Kelsey Rose bridesmaids dresses!
