More Meghan Markle Wedding Dress Predictions

It's official, Meghan Markle will be wearing TWO wedding dresses on May 19 and we feel as if our royal wedding fashion dreams have come true! Although we think *these* designers are the front-runners for the royal ceremony dress, nothing has been confirmed. We know that Meghan will be wearing something simple and elegant when she weds Prince Harry, but when the couple arrives at Frogmore House for their reception, we think Meghan will up the ante with a bold modern look.

After seeing dozens of regal gowns reign the runways during New York Bridal Fashion Week, we can't help but picture Meghan in each of the fairytale-worthy styles. Here are our top trend predictions for Meghan Markle's second wedding day look:

Plunging Neckline
For the ceremony at Windsor Castle, we think Meghan will be wearing a modest-necked gown. However, when it comes time for the reception we think she may show some more skin with a plunging neckline like this gown from Eddy K

Open Back
If Meghan thinks a cleavage-baring gown is too much for Queen Elizabeth II to handle, she can show off her toned back instead with a tasteful keyhole like Style Gadot from Val Stefani

Illusion Details
For a more subtle way of showing some skin, Meghan may opt for a gown with illusion details. The illusion vine-covered details of this Lazaro gown are also reminiscent of Meghan's Ralph & Russo engagement dress.

Since this is not Meghan's first trip down the aisle, she may want to wear a hue other than white. This silver brocade ball gown from Theia Couture has iridescent embroidery that would shine under the lights at the royal reception.

High Slit
Although a popular reception dress choice, a mini dress may be too big of a risk for a royal affair. A floor length gown featuring a thigh-high slit like this Justin Alexander gown is the perfect compromise.

Show a bride a gown with pockets and she'll likely shriek with excitement. The modern bride wants to be able to keep her phone —or even a tissue to wipe away those happy tears—with her at all times, and we think that the future dutchess is no exception. This bateau-necked Romona Keveža Collection gown was actually inspired by Buckingham Palace and would be a great fit for both the royal ceremony and reception.

Jumpsuit/Two-Piece Pant Suit 
It shouldn't come as a shock that the 'Suits' actress may opt to wear pants to her reception. As a longtime advocate of women's empowerment, we think it makes perfect sense for Meghan to forgo a second dress and the traditional standards of women's beauty and rock an edgy jumpsuit similar to this design by Galia Lahav.
