Royal Wedding fever has well and truly taken over RMW HQ. Today we’re deliberating over bridesmaid looks fit for a Royal Wedding. Meghan has some seriously stylish ladies in her life, such as fashion PR Jessica Mulroney, society style queen Millie Mackintosh and global trend setter Olivia Palermo (whose own bridal look inspired thousands of brides to wear cashmere for their big days), so we’re really excited to pore over their outfits on Saturday.
In the meantime, we’ve collaborated on this really fun sponsored post with PANDORA to bring you our predictions on what they might be wearing. There are some gorgeous gowns and PANDORA jewellery below – get ready to swoon and send lots of links to your own bridal party…
While these ladies are super stylish, it’s important to remember that this is a Royal occasion and so formality will prevail. To keep things classic, navy is always a great choice of colour. It’s universally flattering, elegant and makes a gorgeous contrast against the ivory and champagne tones of a wedding dress. For this look we dressed our gorgeous model in a long sleeved navy lace gown paired with a chic chignon up-do. Jewellery wise, silver works best with navy so we chose the PANDORA tiara ring in this metal, along with the PANDORA necklace and PANDORA wishbone stacking rings. The tiara ring is such a pretty piece, it’s the grown up way of wearing a tiara – a subtle statement that every girl needs to be treated like a Princess.
The butterfly-esque sleeves of this silver hued gown are so romantic and feminine, hallmarks of Meghan’s personal style, that it’s easy to imagine her best girls wearing gowns like these. The beautiful sweeping fish tail skirt is demure but striking and so hair wise we think a loosely pinned up do is perfect – elegant but soft with beautiful tendrils left free to frame the face. Bracelets make lovely thank you gifts for bridesmaids and for this look we added PANDORA Rose bangles. The added bonus is that wrists look really pretty for those close up bouquet shots.
We’d love to see Meghan’s bridesmaids in a sequin and tulle combination. We get the impression that her and Harry like to party and so a more glamorous look would definitely go down well with them. For this look we chose a statement sequinned gown and paired it with stacking rings in mixed metals from PANDORA. This is a look where more-is-more and all out sparkle is required! Perhaps a little much for their ceremony – but it’s definitely a contender for the reception…
If you love the stacking ring look but aren’t sure where to start, we’ve got some top tips from PANDORA. Firstly chose your basics. A selection of rings that are versatile and build-able is essential. Next, mix your metals. It’s all about pairing different metallic shades these days, rather than sticking to an all gold or silver palette. And finally, add a feature ring, for example the PANDORA tiara ring, which we’ve used in all of the jewellery looks for this post.
The floral maxi is a staple look in most women’s wardrobes and so if you want to keep you bridesmaids happy – this is the look to go for! Floral print is such a lovely way to add colour to proceedings too. Given Harry and Meghan have opted for a florist who is known for her use of seasonal British flowers and creating large, wild and organic looking arrangements, we think it’s a safe bet that they love flowers, so will the bridesmaids be sporting this look? It’s definitely a possibility!
Jewellery wise, to echo the bohemian style of this dress, we went for lots of bracelets – all the pieces from PANDORA can be layered beautifully and again, this is a great chance to mix metallics and keep your girls look on point.
