Is this the designer who will create Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress?

There's just over a week to go until the next royal wedding of the year - when Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will say 'I do' in front of the eyes of the world.

Already, the happy couple have provided plenty of information about their big day – we know that the ceremony will begin at 11am, and will be followed by a reception held by the Queen.

We also know that 1,200 members of the public are invited – as are various charities supported by Her Royal Highness.

But one detail that seems to have been kept a closely guarded secret, is Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress. Much like Catherine and Meghan’s royal dress before her, any and all details about the gown have so far been shrouded in secrecy.

However, bookmakers Ladbrokes have now provided some suggestion of the designer Eugenie may have chosen to make the dress for her special day.

According to them, the best bet is Erdem, with the favourable odds sitting at 7/2. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to royal watchers, as the Princess has long favoured Erdem for many of her outfits in the past.

Most recently, she wore a design by the British-based fashion house to Royal Ascot. And in fact, she even chose one of his dresses for her engagement photos – wearing a black and pink floral dress that is typical of Erdem’s pieces.

Other possibilities include Suzannah Neville, with odds of 5/1, Jenny Packham – a designer loved by the Duchess of Cambridge – at 6/1, and Alice Temperley, at 10/1.

Eugenie herself has in fact already confirmed that a British-based designer is making the gown for her big day. She revealed to British Vogue that she knew who she wanted for the job as soon as she and Jack announced their engagement.

She said, “I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer. [The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away.

“I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.”

Erdem was previously rumoured to be Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’s choice for her big day. In the end however, she famously opted for Claire Waight Keller, of Givenchy, to design her wedding dress.

The brand, run by 41-year-old Erdem Moralıoğlu, has designed wedding dresses in the past, which give some hint of how Eugenie’s may look if she in fact has chosen him.

The dresses tend to be made with many of Erdem’s signature floral elements incorporated – and often encompass a romantic, whimsical feel that we could definitelysee Princess Eugenie in on her wedding day.

However, only time will tell – as it’s likely that the designer of the gown will only be officially announced as Eugenie walks down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel on Friday 12th October.
