Markle met with Waight Keller in early 2018 and worked closely on the design and details of the dress together referencing the iconic Givenchy style and the bride’s classic personal taste. The pure lines of the dress are achieved by “six meticulously placed seams.”

According to a press release, Waight Keller extensively researched fabric mills throughout Europe to create an exclusive double bonded silk cady for the gown. The fabric “has a soft matte lustre whilst the bonding process and pure white colour chosen by Markle and Waight Keller bring a fresh modernity to the dress.”

Waight Keller released a statement on her collaboration with the bride, sharing her well-wishes with the newlyweds.

Prince Harry had a hand in selecting the flowers for the bridal bouquet Markle carried down the aisle and include a touching nod to his late mother, Princess Diana.

According to a press release, “Prince Harry handpicked several flowers yesterday from their private garden at Kensington Palace to add to the bespoke bridal bouquet designed by florist Philippa Craddock. The spring blooms include Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favourite flower. The couple specifically chose them to be included in the bouquet to honour the memory of the late Princess on this special day.”

The bouquet also includes scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine, and sprigs of myrtle all bound with a naturally dyed, raw silk ribbon. The myrtle sprigs are from stems planted at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, by Queen Victoria in 1845, and from a plant grown from the myrtle used in The Queen’s wedding bouquet of 1947.

The use of myrtle is a royal tradition.

“The tradition of carrying myrtle begun after Queen Victoria was given a nosegay containing myrtle by Prince Albert’s grandmother during a visit to Gotha in Germany.  In the same year, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House as a family retreat, and a sprig from the posy was planted against the terrace walls, where it continues to thrive today. The myrtle was first carried by Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, when she married in 1858,” according to a press release.
