Millions around the world watched this weekend as Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, walked down the aisle to marry Prince Harry in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Donning a diamond tiara lent to her by Queen Elizabeth and trailed by a 5-meter-long veil, Markle was a vision in her custom white bridal dress designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director for Givenchy. The gown featured an open bateau neckline with three-quarter-length sleeves.

Markle chose Waight Keller "for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour," a statement from Kensington Palace read. Experts estimate the dress cost upwards of a few thousand dollars.

After the ceremony, during her wedding reception, Markle slipped into a bespoke lily white high-neck gown made of silk crepe by designer Stella McCartney.

For those who want to recreate the glamour and elegance of Markle's royal wedding looks, but may not have access to custom dresses from global fashion empires, fear not: Bridal designer and "Say Yes to the Dress" star Randy Fenoli shared tips with "GMA" on how you can recreate the looks yourself.

Both of Markle's dresses were classic, but still incorporated elements of her relaxed and effortless style, Fenoli said.

He noted that the bare shoulders in her Stella McCartney dress were a touch edgy for the royal occasion, and are the most shoulders we've yet seen in a royal bride.

No matter what your budget, if you are looking to cop her style, Fenoli recommends honing in on four key details:

1. Look for a similar neckline (i.e., off-the-shoulders or high-neck with bare shoulders).

2. Go for simple, comfortable fabrics. This gives off a low-maintenance, unembellished and sleek look, according to Fenoli.

3. Personalize your dress, and add details that mean something to you.

4. Pair your dress with a detailed veil or crown headpiece.

Here are some looks Fenoli recreated inspired by Duchess Meghan.
