This Is Why Meghan Markle Might Not Wear A White Wedding Dress

The Queen wore an ivory silk dress for her wedding in 1947 and Kate Middleton wore several shades of off-white when she donned her Alexander McQueen gown in 2011.

With just weeks to go before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle walk down the aisle and (presumably) say “I do,” we still don’t know what the bride’s dress will look like. But many speculate one thing: it won’t be white.

According to the Mirror, there are a couple of reasons why her wedding gown might not be white. First, if she decides to follow in her soon to be in-laws’ footsteps, she will be wearing a different shad of white.

The Queen wore an ivory silk dress for her wedding in 1947 and Kate Middleton wore several shades of off-white when she donned her Alexander McQueen gown in 2011.

Another reason Markle’s dress might not be white: tradition. (A word she’s likely tired of hearing by now.)

As the Mirror points out, “old school etiquette” dictates that second time brides shouldn’t wear white, as they aren’t exactly fooling anyone with their virginity ploy. And if you recall, this won’t be Markle’s first rodeo; she married Trevor Engelson in 2011, the same year Prince William and Kate exchanged vows. And that dress, well, it wasn’t exactly fit for royalty. Fit for a Jamaican beach wedding? You bet.

The dress was she wore was a boho-style strapless floor-length gown with an embellished belt. And it definitely fit her tropical wedding. We can only imagine her royal gown will be just as fitting for the occasion on May 19 and no doubt stylish.

As for what guests will be wearing to the wedding, that we know!

According to Best Life, women have been asked to wear a “day dress with hat,” while men must wear “uniform, morning coat, or lounge suits.”

This means if a gentleman is currently in the military, he may wear his uniform, but most men in attendance will be in morning coats and top hats. (According to Debrett’s, the British authority on modern etiquette, a lounge suit” is “an expression only seen on invitations as a dress code. In conversation the terms dark suit or business suit or possibly business dress or business attire are used.”)

Female guests are expected to wear a knee-length dress with sleeves covering the shoulders. Unlike the hats, the less adventurous, the better. No skin is best.  The question is, will Markle be showing skin? It would almost seem out of character for her not to look a little sexy. Church sexy, but still reflective of her personality.
