FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) — History was made this morning when American actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry. But all eyes were on the bride waiting to see what she would be wearing for her big day.

Every bride wants to choose the perfect dress but imagine the pressure Meghan Markle felt knowing the whole world would be watching. And good thing, because a local stylist says her choices will have a huge impact on bridal fashion.

Every bride wants to feel like royalty on their wedding day.

"It’s just your one day to feel glamorous and elegant, everyone’s going to be looking at you," says Lauren Kersey of Quincy, Massachusetts.

On the big day, the Royal Wedding, a little piece of Windsor was right here.

"We’re actually celebrating the Royal Wedding so we’re having tea sandwiches and little tea snacks for our customers. We also have a live English guard here that you can take photos with and these awesome cardboard cut outs of the Queen and then Prince Harry and his wife Meghan," says Anthony Palmieri, a stylist at Alexandra’s Boutique.

Brides to be trying on dress after dress looking for the one.

"You want to feel elegant, timeless," says Kersey.

Which is exactly what Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex did.

"She was in something very clean and sleek with the bateau neckline, but the skirt was kind of interesting. I think it kind of threw us for a loop seeing something so clean without lace and bead work on it," says Palmieri.

And with what feels like endless options, her choices just might help narrow it down for other brides.

"I truly believe that going forward that a lot of brides are going to see this very clean look and want to emulate that on their wedding day so it’s actually going to be something where the brides can incorporate heirloom items and maybe bring in gram’s veil or auntie’s bracelet and kind of make it their own," he says.

Not to be out done, the queen wore a lime green outfit, a color Palmieri says we could now being seeing more of.
