Imagine being invited to the hottest fairy tale wedding in town, London town that is. What would you wear to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming nuptials? You have to hit all the right marks. It can’t be too sexy or show too much flesh. It should speak to the importance of the event, not compete with the white or ivory worn by the bride but be gorgeous enough to shine in a crowd of royals, celebrities, and other posh people. That’s a tall order.
I decided to come up with several looks for this seriously over-the-top event where an American woman will become a princess when she marries her prince charming.
