12 Hidden Details On Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Dress You Didn’t Know About
Pippa Middleton quickly became the world’s most acclaimed bridesmaid after she gracefully held the train of her sister Kate Middleton’s extravagant gown during her royal wedding to Prince William back in 2011. More recently, however, it was Pippa’s turn to walk down the aisle and her sister graciously returned the favor and took on the bridesmaid duty as Pippa married financier James Matthews in a private ceremony at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield. The bride clearly took a tip or two from her older sister while wedding dress shopping and donned a lace-embroidered cap sleeve gown that was quite reminiscent of Kate’s iconic 2011 Sarah Burton design. Although by now you’ve probably caught a glimpse or two of Pippa’s lace dress, there are still quite a few details you probably didn’t know about the garment. Follow along with 12 details you probably didn’t know about Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress:
12. She followed the “something old” tradition
Pippa Middleton proved to be quite the traditional bride and followed the “something old” tradition while prepping for the big day! Kate Middleton is known for repeating outfits and it seems that her sister Pippa has followed in her footsteps. The earrings she wore on for her wedding day were actually an old favorite that she wore on the day of her older sister’s wedding. The delicate diamond drop style earrings were a gift from her mother, Carole, on the occasion of her sister’s wedding and designed by the London jeweler Robinson Pelham.
11. Created by British fashion designer Giles Deacon
Giles Deacon was the mastermind behind Pippa’s delicate and romantic wedding gown and came as a seemingly unexpected choice of designer. When Pippa announced her engagement it was widely believed that she would opt for a traditional bridal designer from a Belgravia-based couturier who specializes in English society weddings. Before 2016, Deacon focused his work on his ready-to-wear line and then announced he would be switching gears and focussing on couture instead. “It’s a privilege to show the craftsmanship that my team produces in London and a real testament to Pippa’s support of British fashion,” Deacon said in a statement.
