Wedding Dresses for Your Inner Royal

August 26, 2021

For centuries, royal weddings have set the tone for bridal fashion. The royal wedding grabs the attention of the world, and afterwards, brides-to-be and designers alike both gather inspiration from the stunning wedding dresses chosen by royalty. If you’re looking to feel regal on your wedding day, look no further—Martin Thornburg has a range of gorgeous wedding dresses perfect for brides getting inspiration from royalty. 

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge




Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex




The world was enraptured with Prince Harry’s wedding to American actress Meghan Markle in 2018. Her sleek, simple wedding dress has created a trend of breathtaking simple wedding dresses, perfect for the minimalist bride seeking timeless elegance. For women who loved Meghan’s classy, elegant, wedding dress, Martin Thornburg’s Naomi is nearly identical, giving you the same chic, minimal look Meghan wore at her wedding. 

Queen Soraya of Iran




The 1951 wedding of Queen Soraya to Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi featured one of royalty’s boldest, most high-fashion wedding dresses. Her bold, textured ball gown was extremely fashion-forward for the 50s, and the textured trend has clearly not gone anywhere—Martin Thornburg’s latest collection included a similar fluffy, textured ball gown that’ll have you looking and feeling as regal as Queen Soraya herself. 

Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco




Perhaps the Duchess of Cambridge got her lace sleeve inspiration from Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco? Princess Grace Kelly’s iconic lace wedding dress has inspired thousands of gowns since her wedding day in 1956, but the look is as timeless as ever. Carol is an updated version of Kelly’s high-neck lace illusion look, with an off-the-shoulder neckline and a sleeker bodice, free of buttons. 

Princess Diana





Perhaps no wedding dress has ever been as iconic as Princess Diana’s—the puffy sleeves, the ruffles, the bows, the train—Diana’s over-the-top wedding dress defined bridal fashion for the rest of the 80’s and well into the 90’s, with thousands of brides wearing the huge, puffy sleeve look Diana popularized. While her iconic puff sleeve has since waned from popular trends, intense, dramatic wedding dresses have not. Masse hits the same level of drama, with off-the-shoulder bishop sleeves, delicate lace, magical shimmer, and a dramatic train. 



Princess Caroline of Monaco





Princess Caroline of Monaco’s wedding dress is the perfect royal inspo for boho brides. Her 1970’s wedding dress is at once regal and free-spirited, and the lace details along the skirt gives it exquisite detail. While Princess Caroline’s sheer, long sleeve style may not be what you’d opt for today, a lace ball gown never goes out of style. Martin Thornburg style Jenny has nearly the exact look of Caroline’s lace gown, but without the illusion neckline and sleeves, giving it a modern update you’ll love. 

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway





Classic, simple, and elegant, Princess Mette-Marit of Norway’s simple, gorgeous wedding dress is the perfect elegant style. The square neckline and flowing skirt give it a gorgeous look, and her flowing veil blends perfectly into the skirt. Style Preston has the same crisp, long sleeve look, with a sultry, fitted silhouette and romantic touches of lace, mirroring Princess Mette-Marie’s iconic look with a few added details. 



Princess Victoria of Sweden




The sleek, off-the-shoulder gown worn by Princess Victoria of Sweden makes her stand out beautifully. The classic silhouette paired with the romantic, off-the-shoulder neckline makes this gown perfect. Martin Thornburg’s design Aurelle has the same classic shape and off-the-shoulder silhouette, but with a shimmering, decadently beaded collar for added detail. 



Princess Charlene of Monaco





Much like Princess Victoria of Sweden, Princess Charlene of Morocco wore a gorgeous off-the-shoulder look, but with a slightly more fitted silhouette. If you loved her slightly fitting look paired with the high neck, you’ll love Martin Thornburg’s Pauline, a stunning style with the same general shape but more sultry details.
