22 May Get the Meghan Markle look at Creatiques
It was the most anticipated wedding dress the world has seen since Kate married Wills back in 2011, and it most certainly didn’t disappoint.
Can we firstly take a look and appreciate the incredible veil that blew us all away from the second Meghan stepped out of the car with those gorgeous little guys we were all mesmerised by that 5 metre silk tulle veil with those hand embroidered lace and organza flowers that amazing represent the 53 counties of the Commonwealth- what a fabulous idea and lovely way to start her journey as The Duchess of Sussex.
The dress itself also is a game changer for the coming trends in the new collections in the industry. Meghan’s beautiful A-line gown designed by Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy is reminiscent of 1950’s glamour. The dress which has 6 placed seams to emphasise Meghan’s balanced silhouette is made from a double bonded silk caddy material, and we assume had a boned corset on inside the bodice to contour around the waist and bust so elegantly. The gorgeous, clean line of the rolled bateaux neckline initially is the main focus of the dress, framing Meghan’s shoulders and the 3/4 length sleeves add modesty and elegance to the look. The 3/4 sleeves worked perfectly with emphasising the line of Meghan’s slender waist, adding balance and continuity to the simple line of the gown.
DRESS NUMBER 2
Just incase we had any more dress envy left in us after Meghan’s beautiful dress at the beautiful Windsor Castle ceremony watched by millions, she then nips off for a quick change and leaves us all speechless again as she steps out with Prince Harry in a stunning Stella York gown for her evening reception. The dress had a lovely halter neck cut, totally contracting the softness of her earlier dress. The soft crepe material flawlessly skimmed Meghan’s beautiful shape, and dripped in elegance and hollywood glamour.

Justin Alexander released this gorgeous gown last season, well ahead of the Meghan dress hype. It’s slightly more fit and flare than A-line as Meghan’s, however it offers the same gorgeous slash neckline. The crepe material offers a continuous silhouette, skimming curves and shape in an elegant way. This particular dress offers more back detail however, with a gorgeous illusion detail and buttons continuously down the back of the illusion and train of the gown.

If you’d prefer a more relaxed look like Meghan’s second evening gown, then Justin Alexander Signature also offer similarities in their style 9905. “This halter collar crepe neckline with exposed shoulders will do just that. A stretch lining hugs and flatters your figure from waist to hem. Deep illusion cut outs add drama to the button closure back with a crepe bow to finish.”
We’ve chosen a simply beautiful bouquet from Mrs Bouquet that shares similarities to Meghan’s colours and natural look. https://www.mrsbouquetweddings.biz/
We love a good key accessory, and as much as Meghan kept it very simple during the ceremony these gorgeous earring by Ivory and Co are a very good match on those worn by Meghan on the day.
And, as much as we all would love Harry’s gorgeous gift to Meghan- Princess Diana’s stunning aqua marine ring, it’s unlikely we could A) afford one B) not hurt someone whilst wearing it, so we have found a couple of gorgeous alternatives from Hampshire jewellery designer Lucy with Diamonds to still give the same kind of look.
It goes without saying that it’s wedding we certainly won’t forget, and on behalf of Team Creatiques we wish the happy couple all the best!
