Wedding Dresses to Help You Achieve This Look
Meghan had a fabulous 16-foot silk cathedral-style veil with hand embroidery detailing along the edges that took 500 hours.
Although you may not need a flower to represent the 53 commonwealths, a simple way for you to recreate this look for your wedding day would be to look for a long veil with embroidery or lace detailing.
here's something fun:
Meghan's "Something Blue" was a small piece of blue fabric sown into her veil. How is that significant? It came from the dress she wore on her 1st date with Harry.
"When it came to the tiara on the day, I was very fortunate to be able to chose this gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara"
To choose her wedding day tiara, Meghan visited Queen Elizabeth to make her choice: the bandeau tiara worn by Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth's grandmother.
The Queen Mary's bandeau tiara features large and small diamonds, and the center stone of the piece is actually a brooch.
