That train though!!
Princess Eugenie’s dress gave us major old Hollywood vibes and she painted an utterly romantic picture walking up the chapel’s staircase, with a dramatic train trailing behind her. Prince Andrew apparently gave away some key elements of the dress away prior to the big day as he revealed he was worried about stepping on the train of her gown.
Designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos, the folded, slightly off the shoulder neckline dipped down into a lower V at the back for just a flash of skin. She specifically requested a lower backline in order to showcase her scars from a corrective scoliosis treatment as a child, as she has been a big advocate for scoliosis awareness and charities in the past.
The fabric of the dress was designed specifically for Eugenie and Jack, as it was covered in symbols that had hidden meanings for the couple. According to INews, they include a Scottish thistle (a reference to Balmoral, the Queen’s Scottish holiday home and one of their favourite places), a shamrock in tribute to Sarah Ferguson’s Irish side of the family and the York rose and ivy to symbolise their home.
She accessorised with a pair of emerald and diamond earrings, which were matched beautifully to a tiara she borrowed from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth. Always one for a great pair of heels, she also chose to wear Charlotte Olympia shoes to tie the whole look together.
Princess Eugenie’s Wedding Dress Designer
Like her cousins-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie chose to go local with her wedding dress and turned to British designers for her gown. She chose Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who crafted the gown which boasts a deep V in both the front and back.
Princess Eugenie’s Wedding Tiara
Although it was widely believed that Princess Eugenie would wear her family’s signature piece the York tiara, she actually chose to wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara.
Designed by Boucheron in 1919, the Queen Mother’s close friend Margaret Greville left it to her when she sadly passed away. It came into Queen Elizabeth’s possession in 2002 when her mother died and she loaned it to Princess Eugenie as her something borrowed for her big day.
