Meghan Markle Will Wear Two Dresses At Her Wedding

  |  By Kimberly Aglipay

Meghan Markle will light another wedding trend aflame with her recent choice in attire. According to Vanity Fair, Meghan will be wearing not one, but two wedding dresses--one for the ceremony at St. George's Chapel, and one for the reception, which will be hosted by Prince Charles. A source close to Meghan told Vanity Fair that "the plan is for her to change after the ceremony so she can party the night away in something glamorous and less restrictive." The source also spilled details about Meghan's first dress, saying: "The wedding dress itself will be traditional and elegant. There's been talk of lace and sleeves and Meghan has been working very closely with the designer, who has been sworn to secrecy."

Sporting a second dress is one of the hottest wedding trends for 2018; however, it's not a new trend among royals. After her wedding ceremony, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton opted to change from her stunning Sarah Burton with lace sleeves and sweeping skirt to a more understated satin ballgown and Angora bolero by the same designer. She remained in her second dress for her reception of 300 guests, a more low-key event than her ceremony, which had over 1000 people in attendance.

Harper's Bazaar reports that there are a few new guesses as to who will be designing Meghan's dress. Burberry's exiting Creative Director, Christopher Bailey, could be the one tapped to design Meghan's dress as a "final bow" to the brand. There were reports that PR strategy meetings have been held at the fashion house for a "high-profile" dress. The site also touts Meghan's close friendship with Isabel May, a former director of communications for Burberry, as a potential reason for her to choose the brand.

Erdem and Ralph and Russo are also popular predictions for Meghan's dress designer. We can't wait to see who she ultimately chooses on May 19th!
