The royal wedding seems to be creating more questions than answers at this point -- Who is the maid of honor? What will the cake look like? But arguably one of the most important questions: What will Meghan Markle be wearing on May 19?

  We may not know yet which designer or design she'll be wearing, but if she follows family tradition, she'll be in white -- despite the fact that she's been married before.According to In Style, before the 19th century, brides wore many colors on their wedding day, but red was reportedly most popular because it symbolized fertility. It has also been viewed as a color that symbolizes joy and luck.In the United States, some brides wore red during the Revolutionary War to symbolize the independence Colonists desired.

  However, in 1840, Prince Harry's ancestor, Queen Victoria, made a fashion statement that has forever caused her to be recognized as popularizing the tradition of a bride wearing white on her wedding day.

  At the time Queen Victoria, then 20, married Prince Albert, red was still the color of choice for wedding dresses, so she royally shocked everyone when she showed up on a procession of carriages at the Royal Chapel of St. James' Palace wearing a white satin dress trimmed in lace and adorned with orange blossoms, toting a lace veil. It's worth noting, too, that instead of wearing a crown, she wore an orange blossom wreath.Read more at:strapless wedding dressA-line wedding dress
