The Royal Engagement

Jan 19, 2018

We were thrilled to hear about the recent engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Our excitement for the upcoming royal wedding is building, but the question is what wedding dress style will Meghan wear? Will she go for classic lace, elegant satin or take a risk with an asymmetric number?

Creative Director of Ellis Bridals, Regine Ellis says, “Meghan favours clean, modern lines and I believe she will want to carry this through to her dress. When asked about a future gown, she was quoted as saying, ‘classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist.’ Style 19102 (below) is a classical ballgown, but in a chic mikado, with concealed pockets and statement off the shoulder straps. It’s so her!”

Here is a selection of bridal gowns we think would be perfect for a royal bride:

Ellis Bridals Lace A-Line Dress Style 12287

The 3-tiered scalloped lace skirt is unforgettable: endlessly romantic and free flowing, this overlaid lace moves like no other. The unique layering is captivating from every angle and light. The delicate off-the-shoulder straps will perfectly frame your figure with the coordinated embroidery blending seamlessly into long fitted sleeves.

Ellis Bridals Mikado Ballgown | Style 19118

The clean lines and simplistic beauty of this magnificent dress makes it the perfect canvas. Elegant and feminine, a soft sweetheart neckline and slim coordinated belt frame the figure while striking box pleats give this mikado ballgown the glamour you have been looking for.

Ellis Bridals Slim Fit Dress Style 11765

It will be love at first sight when you see this dress. This ultra feminine, slim fluted design fits to the body in the softest flowing crepe with a sensual long train. The sophisticated top is delicately overlaid in the lightest beaded lace which carries through into a statement cape design. The gown is finished of with a dramatic low back and descending covered buttons.

Ellis Bridals Mikado Gown Style 12269

Simplicity and elegance are expertly combined in this full A-line dress. Distinctive cut out lace embroidery is the highlight of this gown, a jaw-dropping detail that really sets it apart from the rest. The luxurious structured Mikado of this dress creates a divinely clean silhouette, complemented by the off the shoulder strap detailing. Pure charm.
