Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are just days away from their much-anticipated royal wedding. Speculation is flying about who is designing her dress and what it will look like. What we do know: whatever she wears will instantly become iconic, just like royal brides of the past. We take a look back at other royal brides and find their lookalike dresses for a more modest budget.
Rumored to be inspired by Grace Kelly’s lace number, Kate Middleton’s dress is the epitome of timelessness. The long-sleeved lace is romantic and classic, the V-neck and defined waist are flattering, and the voluminous skirt is both grand and not too showy. This lookalike option from David’s Bridal shares the same elegant lace sleeves and flattering V-neck, plus it nips in at the waist to show off the bride's figure.
The off-the-shoulder look Charlene Wittstock wore to wed King Albert of Monaco is a style the former Olympic swimmer wears often and well. It’s also very trendy now, so when she wore it in 2011 she was very ahead of her time. She paired the unique neckline with a simple trumpet silhouette. This look from Anthropologie’s bridal store BHLDN is a simpler version with a similar neckline and figure-hugging cut.
Beatrice Borromeo isn’t a name many outside of European royal circles will recognize. She wed Pierre Casiraghi (nephew of King Albert of Monaco) in 2015 in pale pink bohemian-style dress. She had FOUR more outfit changes, before landing on this ethereal Armani number. The light layers of silk tulle are stunningly simple but not boring. The BHLDN lookalike has the same soft, cloud-like feel.
