Her reception dress was to die for!!! Loved her ceremony dress too but I agree it made her look a bit broad shouldered and a deeper neckline would have been more flattering but she looked stunning regardless!

Her dress was soooo stunning from the back… the front was interesting but not boring like Meghan’s. I feel like it would’ve looked a little better if the folded sleeve were more petite in size/narrower or cut in an angle? Idk, something was just a bit off about it. But, I liked her hair, it was perfectly executed compared to the sloppy mess (Meghan’s hairstylist deserves a thumbsdown that day). The decor was on point for the time of the year, I really admire Royals like her and Kate who perfer more foliage rather than flowers to decorate the church.

I adored both of her dresses so much and massively prefer it even over Kates. I just dont like Kates as much as everyone else seems to lol. It was perfrct for her but not my jam.

Eugenies whole look is eveything I love!!!!

Side by side for comparison: 

Kate will always be my queen 👑

Kate’s dress is just amazing and my favourite, but I do think it’s worth remembering she is the wife of a future king (I won’t says she’s a future Queen as that is not certain yet, Prince Philip is not king afterall, they will decide it when the time comes), and so has different expectations from the other two.

For those who comment on the dresses it’s also good to remember these are royal weddings. They are not celebs, they are not private citizens, they are royals either born or married into and so will not be found in blingy or trendy dresses with tight fits or a lot of skin on show. Eugenie not wearing a veil was pretty daring for a royal church wedding.

englishbride2018 :  ooooh didnt kknow that about the veil and Eugenie! 

 

Was Megans not fitted properly? I love the idea of it and its style but it just doesnt look right? I seen some instagram cpmmenta claiming Eugenie copied Megans look and I cant for the lifeof me see what is similar about those dresses lol. 

Do the brides get to choose the Tiaras?

janne91 :  She is the first royal bride in recent history to not wear a veil on her first wedding (Camilla did not on her marriage to Charles and Princess Anne didn’t have one on her second marriage, though both did on their first marriages), so it was commented on, not in a bad way, it was known she did it as to not hide her scar, but it did still create comment and some people did say she should have had one.

I think Meghans dress was fitted how she wanted it, she probably could not have got away with anything anymore ‘fitted’, she probably opted for the loose fit as she was already getting some comments here in the UK for her dress sense, she was generally more ‘sexy’ than we would be used to for someone marrying into the Royals.

Yes the brides picked their tiaras from the Queen as their something borrowed. They don’t have to, but obviously most want a tiara and the Queen has most of them so makes sense to borrow from her 🙂 It is their choice which one they pick.

Also forgot to say, the Queen has to approve all Royal wedding dresses. She’s never refused but I guess no one wants to be the first one she says no to haha so they will keep her in mind as well when designing the dress 🙂

I love her first dress and the emeralds, she looked radiant. The second dress isn’t too flattering.

observer :  There are so many rules they need to follow, so it’s not surprising some things are just never seen lol it’s similar to the rules regarding church weddings here, and my point that of course this wedding and harry and meghans will be similar due to these rules. For example, personalised vows are not a thing here, they are not allowed in a church service at all and are extremely limited in the civil weddings done by registrars (you can choose some wording from a list given to you). The only way to have fully personalised vows like often seen in the States is to have a humanitarian wedding, which is not legally binding, so although your guest may hear all the lovely personal things you say, you still have to nip to the registery office and do the same vows as everyone else to make it legal.

This morning they have announced Meghan is pregnant and due in Spring, once the name is announced after the birth there will be people who wont like it because they will almost certainly pick tradional names as would be required as a member of the more senior royal family. Maybe not as traditional as Will and Kates kids names but they still wont be ulta modern or unique.

I think that Kate had the best dress from the front, Meghan had the best tiara and veil, and Eugenie had the best dress from the back.

Of course these were completely blown out of the water by a young woman in East Lothian, Scotland,  who wore a 150 year old dress handmade by her great-great-grandmother.

Isn’t the dress absolutely fantantic.

So… did her reception dress not photograph well or something?  People are saying they liked it but in all the pics I find it looks like nothing so much as two giant nipples hanging off her chest.  I don’t get it and I definitely don’t like it.

Her wedding gown is beautiful; can’t believe anyone is arguing that it needs more freaking cleavage.  It’s classy and looks amazing.
