18 Meghan Markle-Approved Wedding Dresses for 2018 Brides
While details regarding Meghan Markle’s wedding dress are still mega hush-hush, we for one have no chill when it comes to waiting. Having already set the bar high with her engagement photos (ICYMI: She rocked it out in a freaking ball gown), it’s highly unlikely that she’ll settle for anything less than a fashion-forward creation. Keep scrolling for 18 wedding dresses — from pared-down and sophisticated to downright whimsical— that we could *totes* see the duchess-to-be walking down the aisle in. Preliminary dress fittings at Kensington Palace unfortunately not included.
