With a date as important as the Royal Wedding, the team at Weddingly rallied the very best vendors that Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire had to offer to bring you their predictions for the big day.
Styled by the experts at Weddingly, a new innovative inspiration and planning platform for the stylish and discerning couple, they brought together over 20 local wedding suppliers to contribute to every detail on a royal scale.
Royal wedding dress
Let’s delve into Weddingly’s predictions, starting with the Dress. Easily the most hotly anticipated look of the year, Meghan has already skyrocketed to Style Icon status, so all eyes will be on what she chooses to wear on her special day.
This stunning dress by Alan Hannah offers a nod to her sheer sleeved, billowing tulle Ralph and Russo dress that she wore for her engagement photos. The champagne hue offers a trendy, yet classic alternative to a traditional white or ivory gown. It’s still modest, yet contemporary, perfect for a modern day Princess.
Then again, perhaps she’ll take a leaf out of Pippa’s Bridesmaid’s book and opt for something a little more form fitting- and we all remember how popular that was!? This sleek, ruffled low back dress from Adrianna Papell is so simple, so elegant, a real celebration of Meghan’s natural beauty.
As she wore sleeves for her engagement photos, there’s a big chance that she’ll choose to go in the opposite direction for her wedding day. This sleeveless Suzanne Neville gown, from from Award Winning Bridal Boutique, The Bride, offers regal volume, with a fresh twist on a traditional look. This breathtaking crisp, starchy silk offers an understated luxe elegance, which we think could just be perfect.
And what about her husband to be? A non-traditionalist himself, there’s much speculation that Harry will forego his Military attire in favour of something more classic. These gorgeous custom made suits from bespoke tailors Cerimonia, give us much to look forward to.

What about the Styling? We hope that this is where they let their personalities shine.
This glorious, bohemian bouquet from Herbert and Isles, showcases a feather amongst the wild blooms, perhaps Meghan will opt for something playful to stand out against her dress. Or perhaps she’ll choose something that celebrates her beloved peony, keeping it simple and beautifully classic, as showcased in this Betty and Bear bouquet.
We know that Meghan loves a burst of colour from her old Instagram feed and that Harry is anything but beige, so perhaps the venue will be filled with vibrant, fun tones, blending soft summer hues together in a real celebration of colour, like this bold summer table.
Then again, they could embrace something more classic, weaving in whites and greens, with a touch of decadent gold, like this more elegant styling. It’s timeless for a reason.
There’s no denying that it will be a spectacular affair and with all eyes glued on what will happen on the day, it’s sure to be a day to remember.
