It has been revealed that Meghan Marle’s wedding dress cost £387,000 (about N18.5 Million). This was more than the cost of Kate Middleton’s gown which was £250,000.
Prince Harry’s bride chose a Clare Waight-designed Givenchy gown for her big day – which was her second marriage – on Saturday 19 May.
The simple design featured expert tailoring, a 16ft trained adorned with the flowers of the 53 Commonwealth countires and an underskirt in triple silk organza. While the Duchess Of Cambridge’s is believed to have set her parents Caroline and Michael Middleton, who paid for the gown, back by £250,000, Meghan’s is thought to have cost more.
While not confirmed, it’s estimated the former Suits star’s gown cost a whopping £387,000 – a whole £137,000 more than Kate’s.

However, it seems that is not quite true. The simple, elegant design of Meghan dress has been met with a lot of praise and it has since been revealed just how much thought was put into the process.
When Meghan’s dress was revealed for the first time on Saturday, Kensington Palace revealed more details about the though behind its design.
Kensington Palace said: ‘True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasises the slender sculpted waist. ‘The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity.’
