Bateau Neckline

Some people loved the dress and some hated it, but almost everyone agreed that the bateau neck on the wedding gown looked beautiful on Meghan. This neckline is elegant and flattering for most body types and is a great option for more conservative weddings.

Minimalistic Makeup

You should look like yourself on your wedding day. I wouldn't suggest trying any new makeup trends on the big day that you may regret in the future. Meghan looked radiant, wearing light makeup that enhances her natural beauty. Having a natural look will always be timeless!

"Something Blue" Jewelry

No one could ignore that beautiful blue ring on Meghan's finger when she left the reception. As a matter of fact, the stunner belonged to the late Princess Diana. Blue jewelry is a great way to combine something borrowed and something blue with one item.

Deconstructed Cakes

Traditionally, royal weddings have fruit-based cakes, but Harry and Meghan opted for this beautiful, deconstructed lemon and elderflower cake made by Violet Cakes' Claire Ptak. Having the tiers of cake on different levels with ornate gold stands adds an elegant touch, while the roses and imperfectly-perfect icing give a romantic vibe to the entire cake.

Lots (and Lots) of Greenery

This is the trend that never dies! The ceremony inside St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle was decorated in lush greenery which softened and modernized the 14th-century chapel, making it feel super romantic.
