From Town & Country

Princess Eugenie's wedding is just a few weeks away at this point. Here's everything we know so far about her gown:

Who will design it?

Unlike with Meghan Markle's dress back in May, the rumor mill has been relatively quiet about who might design Eugenie's gown, but fashion experts predict the young royal will choose a bold look. What we do know is that it will be designed by a Brit.

"I'm not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer," she said in a recent interview.

"[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."

So will it be Erdem, McQueen, McCartney, or a designer currently flying under the radar? We'll have to wait until October 12 to find out.

What will the process be like for the dressmaker?

Before Meghan's wedding, Sassi Holford, who created Autumn Phillips's gown for her 2008 wedding to the Queen's grandson Peter Phillips, described what it was like to design a royal wedding dress. Given Eugenie, Meghan, and Autumn share a wedding venue, much of her intel still applies.

"It is very important for the dress to fit the venue as well as the occasion," Holford told Marie Claire. "The grand rooms and drama of Windsor Castle and St. George's means the dress should have enough detail to be seen from a distance, be fit for a royal wedding."

Will she wear a veil?

Nothing has been announced, but all signs point to yes. Every royal bride in recent history has worn a veil (that is except Camilla, when she wed Prince Charles and Princess Anne, when she wed Sir Tim Laurence; two women on their second marriages later in life).

Will she have a second dress?

A relatively new trend is for royal brides to wear a second wedding dress before their reception. For example, Meghan Markle changed out of her bateau-neck Clare Waight Keller design, and into a more fashion-forward look by Stella McCartney for the reception at Frogmore House.

It's likely Eugenie will follow this tradition as well.
