Attention brides: if Meghan Markle’s exquisite Givenchy Haute Couture wedding dress designed by Clare Waight Keller made you swoon, we have good news. Luxury bridal brand Floravere is recreating the iconic gown.
The best part: the recreation of the dress that Markle wore for her wedding ceremony to Prince Harry in Windsor on May 19, which will be called the M. Markle, will be available for under $1,475 and inclusively-sized (available from size 0-24). So, if you don’t have $500,000 (the estimated price of her custom gown) to spare on a dress you’ll wear once — or if you’re not a sample size — fear not, Floravere has you covered.
Not to mention, designers at Floravere hail from couture powerhouses such as Monique Lhuillier, Vera Wang and Marchesa — so rest assured the dress for your big day will be in good hands. Literally.
Some other cool details: if the delicate boatneck of the timeless and tailored silk cady gown with its sculptural design and elegant sleeves was the physical manifestation of the dress of your dreams, you’ll be able to order the dress to try on at-home starting today — and you can expect to receive dress samples to arrive at your abode in 6 to 8 weeks time. Then after trying, you can put in your request for a made-to-order final gown which will be ready for delivery in 2-3 months.
Once you’ve got that done, all you’ll need is a five meter long silk tulle veil with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers (your call if you want them to represent all of the flowers of the commonwealth), a pair of Aquazzura heels and you will be reading to meet your very own prince charming at the end of the aisle.
Bonus: if you want to replicate Markle’s divine bridal beauty look, her makeup artist for the big day, Daniel Martin, just shared the keys to nailing her aesthetic here.
