Buh-Bye Lace Gowns, Meghan Just Changed Wedding Dress Trends Forever

Bridal experts are already predicting that Meghan Markle is going to have a huge impact on bridal wear, as she has moved away from the wedding dress trend that has dominated for the last few years. Lace has been the primary choice for brides, particularly after the Duchess of Cambridge wore a lace Alexander McQueen gown to her royal wedding. However, Meghan's Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown was clean and minimal, achieved with six placed seams and no seams on the bodice.

"We're thrilled to see Meghan embracing and leading a new trend in wedding dress style," say the experts at Bridebook. "Ever since Kate's wedding dress, the wedding industry has been dominated by lace and extensive embroidery, and high necks as with Pippa Middleton's dress. In comparison, Meghan's dress is striking, structural, demure and clean—evoking a very traditional and reserved look that is still forward thinking and modern in style."
