20 Wedding Dresses Inspired by the Royal Wedding

Take a look at these princess-inspired gowns from spring 2019 collections.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are wed at last, and the world is buzzing about the sentimental details of their nuptials, the bride's sleek, three-quarter sleeve Givenchy gown featuring an elegant bateau neckline, and all of the royals and celebrities in attendance. Their wedding will certainly serve as inspiration for brides-to-be planning the details of their big day, as elements can be used in a variety of ways and for a number of different wedding themes and styles. Even if you are not saying "I do" at Windsor Castle, there are plenty of ways to feel like royalty on your wedding day – and perhaps the easiest way to do so is by donning a gorgeous ball gown worthy of a princess.

We've gathered a number of stylish options from the latest spring/summer 2019 runway collections to inspire your regal ensemble. The ball gown silhouette certainly provides these looks with a princess style; however, the intricate embroideries, delicate beading, and lace embellishments add to the regality of the dresses – even though Meghan Markle's gown was more simple. From strapless styles with modern pockets to voluminous gowns with lace sleeves à la Kate Middleton, any of these looks will surely make you feel as though you're having your own royal wedding.
