The Duchess Of Sussex's Wedding Dress Was Perfect, Quit Criticizing Her Royal Fashion Choices

The Duchess Of Sussex's Wedding Dress Was Perfect, Quit Criticizing Her Royal Fashion Choices

She doesn't need the decor to show off her beauty. She's about to become a duchess for goodness sake!

You may know (unless you've been living under a rock) that Prince Harry and the former Meghan Markle got married a couple weekends ago! If you haven't seen the highlights of the wedding, do it!!! It will make you believe in love and have your heart melt from the way they look at each other.

As much as we wanted to see the celebrities arrive (did you all see Oprah?!?) and the dreamy groom nervously waits for his bride, we were all waiting to see Meghan's dress!! The moment the Rolls-Royce pulled in front of the chapel, we were all waiting for the glowing bride to step out.

The crowd was so happy to see her! However, not a lot of people were happy to see her wearing that dress. People commented that it was underwhelming, it wasn't fitted well, or it was straight up too simple for someone who is about to become a Duchess.

First of all, she's look beautiful no matter what she wears, if she wore a white trash bag down the aisle, I may question it but she is absolutely gorgeous.

She's an actress, a model, and for goodness sakes, Prince Harry fell in love with her, didn't he??

Second of all, the simplicity of the dress only draws everyone's eyes to her beautiful features. She is a beautiful woman and she can absolutely pull off a white dress without the sparkle and white lace like other wedding dresses. With being the Duchess of Sussex, she has to take up modesty in what she wears and what she does. She doesn't need the decor to show off her beauty.

She's about to become a duchess for goodness sake!

Can we also take a minute to point out that Meghan is an American!? This a huge step for the British monarchy, considering it was frowned upon not too long ago (thanks to the knowledge of "The Crown" on Netflix). This girl is a superhero in my eyes. She can wear whatever she wants!! It's her day. And again. She married a dreamy prince.

But like if you really feel strongly about this dress for its simplicity, look at the gorgeous train!! It was 16 foot long and completely sheer with flowers embroidered in the veil! When the wind picked up, it would send the veil flying if it wasn't for the adorable page boys holding it for her as she practically walked herself down the aisle!!

It's not every day that we see a royal wedding happening, especially an American girl getting married to the royal bad boy.

So, we see your Pinterest board, sweetie. It's full of future wedding venues and dresses that you hope to someday say yes too. But, come on, this is Meghan's wedding day. It's her dress. Her ceremony. Her love story that we were lucky enough to access live from the TV or on our DVR's (because let's be real, 4:30 a.m. was not going to happen for me).

Let her live in the moment and admire that no matter what, she looked stunning.

10 Beauty Products That Will Never Let You Down

Ten beauty products to begin this year on a good note.


I started wearing makeup in seventh grade, and I'm just getting to the point where I'm above average. I'm too scared to do anything adventurous because I know it'll end badly. Ever since then, I've found some items that help me look like I know what I'm doing.

1. Urban Decay-Eyeshadow Primer Potion - $13

This primer is the like the superwoman of all eyelid primers. I've been using it since my sophomore year of high school and it has never let me down once. I could probably run a marathon and my eyeshadow would still be in place, this primer is so good.

2. Thrive Mascara - $24

I have naturally long eyelashes and sometimes mascara can be a struggle. I was using a different mascara for several years that I loved it, but it was a pain to get off of my eyelashes. I took a chance and bought this mascara this summer and have never looked back. Not only does it give me the best volume but it comes off in tubes like fake eyelashes. I will probably never buy a different mascara again.

3. Mario Bedescu-Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender - $12

There aren't enough words to describe how great this product is. Not only does it smell like lavender fairies are kissing me but it's also such a versatile product. I've it as a refresher after a long day and as a setting spray to make my makeup look more natural.

4. The Balm- Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter - $24

I was first introduced to this highlighter when I wore it for my senior prom. I loved the look of it so much that I texted the person who did my makeup because I had to get it for myself. It's a perfect combination of natural and KAPOW. It's subtle but noticeable at the same time.

5. Becca First Light Primer - $38

It smells just as amazing as it looks. I like this primer because it's not heavy on my skin and just feels like a second layer of lotion. I use this as a primer and as a tinted moisturizer when I am not feeling foundation and it gives my skin a healthy glow.

6. Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion - $5.74

If I had to smell one thing for the rest of my life, it would be this. Its so calming and I think I would put it all over my body if I could. As my roommate said one time "it smells so nice."

7. Micro Beauty Blenders - $7

When I would use a big beauty blender for concealer it would get all over my face instead of where I wanted it to be. This beauty blender has been a God-send and has made applying concealer so much easier.

8. Colourpop Give To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette - $16

This eyeshadow palette is not only the cheapest palette I've ever bought but it gives me so many options too. From innocent pinks to matte Rosie colors, I can always find a good combination in this palette.

9. Real Techniques Blend + Blur All Over Brush - $19

Blending is a real struggle with me and sometimes a beauty blender can miss a few mistakes. This brush is not only easy to use but it helps create an even and finished look when I need those last little touch ups.

10.  Wet Brush - $13.99

My hair can be extremely tangled at times and this brush makes it seem like I'm brushing through butter. I use it with wet or dry hair and I never feel like I'm damaging my hair and making the tangles worse.
