The designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos have woven a few symbols into the fabric that mean a lot to Eugenie and Brooksbank, the detailed palace. There is the thistle for Scotland, "which recognizes the couple's fondness for Balmoral, a shamrock for Ireland alluding to the bride's Ferguson family, the York rose and ivy that represent the couple's home," the palace wrote. They have been reinterpreted "in a garland of rope-like motifs woven into a jacquard made of silk, cotton and viscose." It all came together with an elegant, long train in the back. Unlike other royal brides, Eugenie chose not to wear a veil.

As for the fit of the dress, neither a looser nor a tighter dress is against protocol, by the way, Myka Meier, founder / director of Beaumont Etiquette and British-American who was trained by a former member of the Queen's household, previously told ELLE .com. "At the end of the day it was just a matter of preference," said Meier of Meghan and all of the royal brides. If people normally expected this protocol to say, "It shouldn't be tight." With the Duchess of Cambridge, it was perfectly tailored to her figure. I think it's just a matter of preference and something that she really made between her and her designer. "
