Designer Domenico Dolce told Tatler that Spencer wanted her “main dress” to be “fairly traditional” yet “timeless,” opting for a high neckline and long sleeves.
While she was also inspired by her love of Italy, Stefano Gabbana told the outlet that the bride is “a girl who is very attached to her origins, to England; to her heritage of the great Victorian era. And like all the English people, she has a great passion for all kinds of flowers.”
Everything was coming up roses at the reception, as Spencer changed into four different flower-filled gowns, even accessorizing with a floral headpiece.
Dolce & Gabbana shared the series of styles on Instagram, which included a baby blue tulle gown and matching cape embroidered with pink blossoms.
Spencer also dazzled in an off-the-shoulder, hand-painted white silk gown embellished with flowers and crystals, as well as a dress that paired a green bustier-style bodice with a voluminous white skirt.
Last, but certainly not least, the bride sparkled in a white lace look adorned with sequins and three-dimensional flowers.
While the wedding was filled with fashion, one style was surprisingly absent: a tiara.
The bride skipped out on the traditional royal headwear, even though the Spencer Tiara was worn by both her mother, Victoria Lockwood, and her late aunt on their respective wedding days. The last royal to sport the Spencer Tiara down the aisle was another of Diana’s nieces, Lady Celia McCorquodale, in 2018.
Diana’s sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, also appeared to be notably missing from the nuptials, which were attended by famous faces like Pixie Lott and Sabrina Dhowre Elba (who is married to Idris Elba).
