Ever since the royal wedding, it seems like every bride is dying to copy the California chic duchess by opting for a Meghan Markle-inspired wedding dress. The look, which is quite different than Kate Middleton’s lace masterpiece, consists of clean lines and slim sleeves paired with a modest bateau neckline and figure-hugging silhouette. It’s the epitome of minimalist style and perfect for brides hoping to wear a gown that’s understated, but still elegant and sophisticated. If you’re as obsessed with Meghan Markle’s wedding-day look as we and, well, everyone else are, then we think you’ll love these subdued and modern gowns. Whether you’re hoping to match Markle’s unadorned look or simply looking for a gown that highlights your figure, these Meghan Markle-inspired wedding dresses are a must-see.
