Meghan Markle was a breathtaking bride at her royal wedding to Prince Harry at St. George's Chapel on May 19, 2018. 

Meghan's bridal gown, designed by British designer, Clare Waight Keller from the French fashion house Givenchy, was an absolute classic. The wedding gown featured a graphic open bateau neckline that framed Meghan's petite physique. The form-fitting bodice pinched in at the waistline to give the dress a sculpted look. The lines of the dress extended backward, revealing a long train that flowed in soft round folds, cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The three-quarter sleeves of the dress gave Meghan a classic yet modern look.

The fabric of the dress —  double bonded silk cady dress — was developed exclusively for Meghan's bridal dress and the matte lustre gave the gown a sculptural look.

Meghan teamed her wedding dress with a 16-foot long silk tulle veil with hand-embroidered florals appliqué. The veil was a statement in it's own right — trailing behind her as she walked down the aisle in front of the hundreds of wedding guests. Each flower hand-stitched on the veil represented a special part of Meghan's journey to becoming a royal wedding.

In addition to the flora of the Commonwealth, Meghan also selected two personal favorite flowers for her veil: Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace in front of Nottingham Cottage, and the California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) the State flower from Meghan's home state of California.

The veil was held in place by  Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, which Queen Elizabeth lent to Meghan for her special day. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the centre brooch dating from 1893, and was originally given to Queen Mary as a wedding gift. 

Meghan kept the rest of her jewels simple with earrings and a bracelet from Cartier.

She wore her hair up and swept back, which added to the classic overall look. Her hair was styled by Serge Norman and her makeup was done by her long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin.

The stunning bride also wore a pair of classic white pumps made out of silk duchess satin, based on a Givenchy refined pointed couture design.

For her bouquet, Meghan carried flowers that were handpicked by her husband from their private garden at Kensington Palace and also carried Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favorite flower. The bouquet also included scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle, which were all bound with a naturally dyed, raw silk ribbon.

Meghan's bridal look will certainly stand the test of time.
