• Jasmine Burton: Columbus, Ohio 

Burton, 24, works for Alexandria Jay Designs in Columbus, according to the New York Times. She said she wanted to design a dress that Markle would "remember for the rest of her life."

“The wedding dress I designed is in a romantic mermaid style with an illusion neckline, three quarters length sleeves, lace trimming, a custom lace design all over the dress, with a long train and an old-fashioned crown flowing to the veil that matches the dress length,” she told the New York Times.

• Gabby Giglio: Columbus, Ohio 

Giglio, 23, said she was inspired by Markle’s style.

"This gown is form-fitting with pockets and a pearl-embellished belt, to give it that "pencil skirt" look. The bottom half of the gown is silk charmeuse, and the top is made of Venetian lace," she told the New York Times.

• Robbie Tubbs, Ohio 

Tubbs, 19, was inspired by jellyfish.

“I imagine a bride walking down the isle so very lightly, almost as though she is floating, like a jellyfish,” she said.
