As a result of these details, we’re already wondering what the soon-to-be royal’s dress will look like. While we assume Meghan will honor tradition in a custom design and pay homage to Princess Diana as Kate Middleton did with her gown, we also foresee her having more of a fashion moment. Meghan will no doubt choose an elegant silhouette, and we predict she’ll set herself apart, be it with a contemporary design, a dramatic embellishment or even a delicate splash of color. We’re not discounting timeless details altogether—we expect Meghan to work in a bit of lace à la the Duchess of Cambridge and Pippa Middleton or to mirror their choices of sleeves (long, three-quarter or cap). It is possible she’ll go strapless to differentiate herself, however, as she favors the silhouette in her regular wardrobe.
To satisfy our insatiable curiosity, we culled breathtaking designer bridal gowns from the Fall 2018 collections. Our fingers are crossed for details to spill before Harry and Meghan’s nuptials, but until then, we’ll continue to fantasize. Take a look.

Once again riffing on Kate's gown, a corseted bodice would be modern for Meghan.
Maybe the actress will channel Pippa's mock neckline with frothier details.
A long-sleeved belted gown with colored beading would be divine.
We wouldn't be mad if Meghan channeled a moody romantic with the likes of this sheer lace and tulle Vera Wang.

At once traditional and modern, this ball gown incorporates lace but with a delicate off-shoulder sleeve.

A delicate cape overlay is one of the freshest bridal trends we'd love to see Meghan go for.
Then again, perhaps she'll skew traditional but with a figure-hugging silhouette.
Beaded with a cape is another likely look for the actress.
Perhaps she'll go with a British designer that channels her Hollywood roots?
