A tiara is too generous to describe what looked like a cute bracelet set on a monture... Which is a very smart solution by the way. A bracelet always comes handy. A diadem not so.

Everything which is so not-SYTTD is already a winner! Yesterday's dress was restraint en because of that it very refined and stylish.

While not a style I would choose for myself (my wedding dress was more the silhouette of Kate's but with more poof cos it was the 80s,) I thought Pippa's dress was lovely and suited her. And I was most pleased it was not strapless.

Have you seen one episode of the show Few of the brides could be called fat and flabby. And they have some amazing couture gowns on the show. Yes some are outrageous, but there are plenty of gorgeous dresses. You don't have to be covered in lace to look appropriate.

LoL
I have never watched that show... Though I used to watch a wedding story about a decade back.
I don't hate strapless wedding gowns like some on here but I do know that there are some brides who should know not to try and squeeze into one.

I never viewed Pippa wearing a strapless to be honest.

I'm looking at what some guests wore and I'm thinking the 80's might be back?

All in all, I think Pippa's entire wedding ensemble looked far more bridal than Catherines.


To me they we're very similar and there is only so much you can do with a wedding dress ( not including the weird and wacky).

I really liked Pippa's dress, also thought Kate's was on the matronly side, minus the big cuffs maybe?

The glass marquee reminds me of the one used at Alix de Ligne's wedding. Maybe by the same company?

Certainly because it is from Belgium (unknown company ).
I hope they will use it again for other big Events.

Many families have coats, and I am certain not all are happy.
In fact, I have a few coats hanging in my closet and they're even seasonal coats where the weather decides what to wear.

But seriously folks, coat of arms are something that just denotes a specific family, perhaps their heritage or even, as in the case of the Middletons, those acorns that are symbolic of where their family "seat" is. It is very much an exterior thing that some people think is nice to have.

Happiness is an inside job and has no relation to exterior things like status, position, finances or even the luxury of a flush toilet.

If I had to have all those exterior things to be "happy", I must have been deluding myself into believing that I'm a genuinely happy, contented individual all these years.

I like the Middletons because they are winners. They loved their Children whose two girls are really handsome and well educated in every Situation they are.
Kate succeeded giving a Heir and a Second Heir to the Windsor. William and Kate are happy , you see that , their relation with Harry is Perfect.
During six years Kate did well and no faux pas. She is the Joker of the Firm.

At her Sister's Wedding she did not stole the show , it was like Princess Diana at Andrew and Sarah Wedding .

I was reading comments to that effect in the DM, with people saying that they hope this marks the end of the strapless trend.

So many seem to dislike this style that I wonder how it became so popular.

But then others countered to the effect that it can be difficult to find dresses that are NOT strapless, if the dress isn't bespoke.

It's not difficult to find a non strapless wedding gown. I take it as the bride to be wanting to look sexy going down the aisle.

I think the commenters in this case are right. The designers have pushed the strapless wedding dress and offer only a few other choices. And most people can't have a custom designed dress made.

My three nieces who've married over the past 4 years would disagree with you. Only one of them wore a strapless gown but she added a long sleeve lace jacket. All of them complained about the dearth of non strapless dress choices.

This sort of glass houses are known from events like concourses hippique, art fairs, salons (exhibitions), Christmas markets, big festivities, etc. I once was invited for a diner at a Councours Hippique in Valkenswaard (Netherlands) was veeeeeery impressed by a fantastic glass Orangerie constructed by PBI from La Louvière (Belgium).

See this fabulous picture from PBI: http://www.pbi.be/uploads/images/bac.../accueil_1.jpg

No need to pay for Hello. They will have the same photos that we've seen already. Apparently, unlike Zara and Mike and Peter and Autumn, the Middleton's turned down a "name your price" offer from Hello. Commenters on certain sites don't believe it but I do. We will see soon enough. If there is a deal then we should soon see photos from inside the reception and the evening party.
