Today’s historic wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry to his American princess, Meghan Markle, was brimming with special moments, great style, and historic firsts. As always with such events, it is sure to generate a profusion of admiring imitators and affect wedding style trends the world over. Which of these budding trends will blossom into full-blown fads? We don’t know, but we know which ones we’d like to see more of.
The Gown! The now-Duchess’s svelte, sculptural gown was the perfect counterpoint to all the opulent, highly wrought royal embellishments surrounding her. Back away from the beading, lay down the lace ladies, try something along the lines of one these stunners.
Teeny tiny bouquets. We Americans don’t get that many opportunities to carry a bouquet, so we want to make the most of it. Also, the simple gowns are the perfect backdrop for a stunning bouquet. We’d like to see a statement-making bouquet that that is un-fussy with sculptural flowers like phalaenopsis orchids or calla lilies.
