Last week’s exciting news from Beckham HQ, yet again, saw the family further propelled into the limelight. This time with an additional member. After a whirlwind romance of close to nine months, Brooklyn Beckham announced his engagement to his American heiress and actress girlfriend, Nicola Peltz – a match made in celebrity heaven. Naturally, the fashion press went into immediate overdrive, posing that all important question, who and what will Peltz wear on her wedding day? Leading to the even bigger question, will it be her future mother-in-law, Victoria Beckham?

Since launching her fashion house, Victoria Beckham has been a designer favourite of the bridal bookies for many high profile British weddings. After attending the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011 (with her husband David), Beckham has become a regular fixture on the royal and celebrity wedding circuit, consistently making the best dressed guest lists.

It’s perhaps because she’s so often invited as a guest, that there’s an assumption she might one time get the twofold invitation, as guest-and-designer? And what an invite that would be. Throughout the Duchess of Sussex’s engagement to Prince Harry, there were various rumours circulating she was the designer of choice. In the end, Clare Waight Keller took the reigns for Givenchy, while Beckham took an equally coveted, but more personal, if not familiar, role as a guest. Perhaps this is her preference when it comes to friendships?

This time round, it’s an entirely different situation; as she prepares her own key role as mother of the groom, to see Peltz walk up the aisle to marry her eldest son and take on the new title of mother-in-law. Of course, her very own outfit of choice will be closely examined, and it will almost certainly be one of her own designs.

If ever there was a time to see this global designer put her hand to bridal, it is surely now. The media savvy Beckham must know that, not only would it be a wonderful brand endorsement, but that she risks huge sighs of disappointment from fans worldwide should she not go down this route. And so, it is with baited breath that we must wait to hopefully see just what a bridal gown by Victoria Beckham may look like. We, too, remain fully aware that this could be her most emotional piece of work to date.

Realistically, Peltz could opt for more than one dress; increasing the chances that one of them may be a Victoria Beckham design (even if it’s not the ceremony wedding dress). Should she choose another designer alongside – or instead, heaven forbid – of Beckham, we know she’s a fan of Balenciaga, Stella McCartney and Chanel. Alternatively she may lean towards one of Victoria’s designer friends, such as Marc Jacobs, Roland Mouret or Dolce & Gabbana. Either way, one thing is for sure, that the current reigning Mrs Beckham will most certainly have some form of input on the eagerly awaited wedding dress.
