There’s nothing quite as charming, as fascinating, and as exuberant as a royal wedding – and the fact that we’re all eager to see Meghan Markle walk down the royal aisle is just the tip of the ice berg in a long history of famous princesses and queens.
What are the most inspiring royal wedding dresses in history? We have gathered them for you – so read on if you’re searching for ideas for your own Big Day in Virginia.
- The First One. Not many people know this, but the white wedding dress tradition hasn’t always been part of the Western civilization. The first one to make a shocking move in this direction was none other than Queen Victoria herself, who chose the modesty of a white dress over the opulence of what other royals used to get married in. A trend-setter in the fullest sense of the word!
- The Ultra-Simple One. Over the decades, royals chose a variety of styles for their wedding dresses. Princess Margaret was one of the first royal brides to get married in a low-key, minimalistic dress. But the one that still sticks in collective memory is Princess Silvia of Sweden, who got married in the simplest white dress you can imagine.
- The Mesmerizing One. Princess Diana will remain in history for a lot of reasons – and her wedding dress is surely right at the top, in the collective memory too. With a splendid 25-foot train and a staggering 10,000 pearls embellished in a design that feels torn from the 80s and very timeless at the same time, her dress shook the world and left us all day-dreaming of our own royal weddings.
