Ms. Markle wore a white, sleeved, bateau neckline Givenchy gown. The gown was designed by Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Keller is the first female artistic director at Givenchy. The elegant gown was paired with silk duchess satin pumps, Cartier diamond earrings and bracelet, a five-meter-long silk tulle veil accented with hand-embroidered floral trim and Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara.

One of the focal points of the wedding was Ms. Markle’s Givenchy gown. While there has yet to be an official statement on the cost of the gown, we can assume thousands of dollars were spent on it. It will not be a surprise to see a replica of Ms. Markle’s Givenchy gown hitting the market in the next month, but for now, check out these affordable alternative gowns.
Not everyone gets to have their pick from the Queen’s jewels. While we may love Ms. Markle’s choice of the Queen Mary Tiara, not many of us can afford such a thing. Nothing could ever truly be as breathtaking as Queen Mary’s Tiara, but these affordable tiaras come close.
Cartier is and always will be known for their exquisite diamonds. They’re clean, clear and precise. While you cannot fake a Cartier diamond, these earrings and bracelets can surely give you the same elegant look of Ms. Markle’s Cartier diamonds.
Ms. Markle’s outfit was perfect down to her silk duchess satin pumps. While we didn’t get to see them that often during the wedding, we did get a sneak peek when the two newlyweds were leaving St. George’s Chapel. The peek was enough to get us wanting more. Check out these affordable like-alike shoes.
Prince Harry personally picked a handful of flowers for Ms. Markle’s bouquet. Some flowers included were forget-me-nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales favorite flower. Other flowers were included such as sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia. There was also springs of myrtle, which symbolizes hope and love. The bouquet was held together by a raw silk ribbon.
The chapel, St. George’s, where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry married was adorned with white peonies, white garden roses and more. If you’re looking to recreate their floral entry ways we recommend these smaller and more affordable ones.
