It's true—Meghan Markle has reportedly picked her wedding dress designer. Here’s everything we know about her gown so far.

WHO WILL DESIGN THE DRESS?

According to reporter Omid Mio Scobie and Us Weekly, fittings have already been taking place in Markle’s Nottingham Cottage home. 

"Sources tell me that Meghan Markle has officially picked a wedding dress designer and had her first fitting at Kensington Palace last week," Scobie wrote on Twitter.

Previously, Markle has called out Delphine Manivet, Christos Costarellos, Elie Saab and J.Mendel as bridal designers she particularly liked, but don’t expect the name to leak anytime soon.

“Right now only a small, select group of people know the designer’s name, so don’t expect to find out anytime soon,” said Scobie. “Even Harry made himself scarce during the first fitting!”

HERE’S WHAT THE GOWN COULD LOOK LIKE.

Anyone expecting Meghan Markle to walk down the aisle in a traditional white lace dress, prepare to be disappointed. Prince Harry’s new fiancé has already given us a pretty good idea of what her dream wedding gown will look like, and it’s nothing like the look Sarah Burton designed for Duchess Kate back in 2011.

In March of 2016, before she and Harry had even met, Markle described her perfect wedding gown during an interview with Glamour about her Suits character Rachel’s storyline.

"I have the luxury of wearing beautiful pieces of clothing every day for work, so my personal style—wedding or not—is very pared down and relaxed," she said.

"Classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist. I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic.”

And while the gown her character wore to get married on Suits wasn’t exactly Markle’s taste, she did call out one specific detail that she loved.

“For TV we did have to bring the neckline up a touch per the producers’ request, but the original design has a low ballerina inspired neckline and I happen to love that.”

WHO HELPED HER MAKE THE DECISION?

Scobie also reported that Markle’s good friend Jessica Mulroney was in London to help the bride-to-be through the process.

She reportedly "quietly flew into London on January 10, spending four days at the couple’s Nottingham Cottage home."

Mulroney, who runs her own bridal-styling business, is also “helping with several other wedding day elements.”

While she has been mum about Scobie’s reporting, Mulroney posted an Instagram on Monday of her children holding welcome back signs at the airport, indicating that she had just gotten back from traveling.

When asked about her favorite celebrity wedding dress, Markle responded “Carolyn Bessette Kennedy,” calling her simple silk slip dress designed by Narciso Rodriguez “everything goals.”
