After the recent nuptials of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank on Friday, we were keen to discuss the biggest thing on everyones mind….. yes you guessed it the brides dress! After following this young princesses “interesting” style choices over the years, here at Happily Ever After were really unsure what to expect as I suspect was the nation as a whole. We were delighted to see that in fact she actually nailed it! Her gown was classic and elegant with a nod to iconic styles of decades gone by.
The designer Peter Pilotto created the gown using a jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend. The folded neckline at the shoulders showed vintage looks from the 50’s are still very much in style and the low back was beautifully crafted and quite simply to die for.
With so many Royal weddings lately we have inspiration in abundance. Back track to May this year and we saw the stunning Meghan in what I would describe as the definition of simplicity, yet she look flawless and awe-inspiring in her fitted bataux neckline framing perfectly her decolletage.
Then earlier still the beautiful kate whos gown we could never forget with those delicate sheer lace sleeves and timeless A line skirt. With so many Royals nailing their look how has this inspired you?
Which is your favorite Royal Wedding dress and who’s style would you steal?
Day to night. Another trend fast catching on is the outfit change for an evening reception and we have had a number of brides recently considering this as an option. We are in two minds about this one, on the one hand it does offer a little more flexibility to let your hair down and dance the night away (especially if you opted for a full ball gown) yet on the other it seems a shame to only enjoy such stunning dresses for only a few short hours.
Steal their style!
