An outdoor wedding was to be expected. Their house doesn't have the space for 150 people for a reception, not alone 250 for the evening party.

Yurts are becoming popular. They are just like renting a normal tent got a wedding. It isn't the first time for the family either. They rented one for New Years a few years ago.

I get the feeling the food Truck and such are not the wedding reception but likely the evening party. The party would be more geared to the younger guests. The actual reception is likely more traditional. A food truck and a music festival party sounds fun and great for a young couple.

They shouldn't need to have a stuffy party just because her sister married a royal. Unlike Kate, Pippa and James are private send get the wedding that they want.

Maybe this is evidence that the Middeltons don't really want to be seen as 'posh', in the sense of trying to impress the neighbors or convince whoever of whatever. If that was ever the thinking (and I don't think it was really that per se), my guess is they are beyond trying to impress and more into doing their own thing.

Classy is as classy does. Comfort, relaxation and fun is the name of the game. Good on Pippa!

Yep, nothing stuffy. It's not a state occasion. It's going to be what Pippa (a private citizen) wants (her fella, too, )

We found out she'd requested that week off from Suits and several people have reported it's so she can attend Pippa's wedding with Harry. We don't really know for sure but it seems likely.

Oh so we don't know we are just adding 2 and 2 and getting the answer we want. Ha ha. Don't think we will know for sure unless guests get photographed driving in which I hope doesn't happen.

There's an article in the DM today about the Middletons visiting the church.

And people are complaining that they don't care to hear about Pippa and her wedding.

(Apparently over 500 commentators don't care, yet they took the time to read the article and post a comment).

if memory doesn't fail me, even kate and william had a 'food truck' alternative at their wedding: didn't harry organize for bacon baps for guests who stayed for the private party in the evening?

Yes, comments like that always tickles me. If they don't care, why read and indicate that they did? I guess they feel that their opinion is so important that it MUST be told. Self centered lot or maybe just common nasty of other's happiness. Shame

Yes, on the bacon according to People

Royal Wedding Coverage: Prince Harry's Late-Night Treat: Bacon Butties

And seems along with bacon there was to be an ice cream truck. But catered food as well.

I think Kate and Pippa's friend Alice Avenal has a little girl Rose who's about the same age as George and may be a bridesmaid. There could be some little ones on the Matthews side of the family, though I believe James's youngest niece is fifteen now.

The DM says she is twelve; maybe Pippa plans to do as Kate did, and have bridesmaids of varying ages?

I don't think she'll have any adults or teens in her bridesmaid group.

Just some tiny girls.

Yet that's very British, not so? The way of American weddings, I mean, can have flower girls and ring bearers, but usually there are adult bridesmaids. Would Meghan (or any bride from another country marrying into the BRF) morph to that extent? Why do that? Especially as a wedding tends to be the bride's 'thing'.

Adult bridesmaids aren't an American thing. They are as common in the UK. You may have a wider range in age, and not all these flower girl, junior bridesmaid and such titles, but it's not British to only have kids. Even in royal weddings, Pippa was of course maid of honor. We see at the weddings of their friends there are adult bridesmaids and little ones. Heck even older royal weddings like the queen had older bridesmaids.

Pippa is not a royal bride. In no way is she held to any recent standard of bridal parties in the royal family. What Meghan may or may not do if they wed, is a different matter.

It's all just a variation on the same theme isn't it. I don't know that any of it is especially country specific these days.

Typically here in Ireland the title Maid of Honour goes to any married member of the bridal party and Bridesmaid to any single member (... which comes with the dire warning "Three times a bridesmaid, never a bride!!" ... ) and Flower Girl to any little member of the party. Only typically, there's no set rule book!

I'm expecting Pippa to have at least one teenaged or adult attendee to escort her up the isle to oversee any attending tots. A close friend or cousin, if not Kate.

I think there almost certainly be one adult or teenage attendant at least, otherwise you could well have one two year old and one nearly four year old doing everything from attempting to chew their floral bouquet to sitting down in mad-aisle to speaking out of turn to having a tantrum, and that goes for any other tiny attendants in the wedding party. I remember William at the York wedding! Nuff said!
