The royal weddings are a friendly reminder that there are such things as a real life princesses. We've been lucky enough to witness three royal weddings over the past 10 years. Even though they all felt like just yesterday! Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie all had distinctively different styles with one thing in common: long sleeves! It's great to look back on their wedding day looks to see how the tradition and styles have evolved, even for a royal wedding dresses!
Kate Middleton married Prince William in a lavish long sleeve ball gown. The stunning design featured an ivory satin bodice, covered with chantilly lace and long illusion sleeves. She combined royalty with her on-trend sense of style and created one of the most iconic looks for brides to get inspiration from! Our Justin Alexander Signature Style Cambridge (see below) has intricate laser cut lace chantilly lace appliques along the bodice and sleeves. The keyhole back of this Justin Alexander Signature style adds a touch of modernity to the dramatic ball gown!
More recently, Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie swept the bridal industry, leaving behind very impressionable marks that are still relevant to date! Meghan Markel not only has a trend named after her ("The Meghan Markle Effect"), she has also inspired many brides to opt into a "second look." Her ceremony gown was all about clean lines, long sleeves and a modern, minimal feel similar to our Justin Alexander style 8936 (see below). It not only resembles the ceremony look with the long sleeves and Sabrina neckline, it also captures the same clean and sophisticated feel.
For her "second look," Meghan Markle stayed true to her modern roots and trend-setting person! She went sleek and sexy with a high halter neckline and overall cocktail feel.

Last but not least, Princess Eugenie, who lived up to her royal title in a gorgeous longsleeve ball gown.
