Do we think Pippa will wear a tiara?

Of course she can have what she wants but I can also have an opinion.
The weddings that Harry and Will have been to haven't had glass castle etc. I was hoping she would do it classy so I'm disappointed. But I'm getting tired of not being able to have an opinion. I think a lot of people forget she isn't a member of the RF so I do wonder why there is a thread about her wedding on a royal forum

If this wedding only cost 75,000 pounds, I will be utterly surprised. Non celebrity private weddings are running close to that especially with a decent cocktail hour with food prior to actual reception and dancing. Hiring good music can run quite a good deal alone. Plus this one will be hiring a proper security team which doesn't come cheap. It is not like they are saving their pennies for down payment on a cottage. I hope it is exactly what they want. It is their special day.

I hope not. It really isn't that type of wedding.

Actually I think I like the idea of the glass enclosure better than having a marquee that looks like a tent pitched in the backyard. Much more a defense against inclement weather should the need arise.

I don't give a hill of beans either what the total cost of the wedding is as I figure if they're paying for it, they can have paratroopers in monkey suits landing with SWAG bags for excitement. What matters is its the kind of a day that both Pippa and James want and that it goes off perfectly without a hitch or any signs of distress

Does anyone have her email? Because paratroopers in monkey suits sounds like an idea she should really know about. Osipi, I adore you.

I have been to the weddings of party planners much farther down the food chain than the Middletons, and every time they blew me away as being over the top, relative to what I would usually expect from someone of their economic/social status.

For one thing, they always seems to have friendships with others in the business who give a big discount on services as their wedding present. It's natural for someone who spends so much of time and energy thinking about how to make other people's parties and weddings special to want to use all their favorite ideas on themselves when they finally get their turn as host. What's more, their guest lists almost always include other people in the business, too, and they tend to want to wow the other pros.

I know the Middletons are on the supply side of the party business, but they're in the party business. I would expect nothing less than something lavish for their daughter's wedding, even if they didn't have royal connections or public attention.

It's just a glass marquee, designed to make the most of the lovely early summer evenings we have these days. Nothing not classy about it, IMO.

What type of wedding are you alluding to? Many English brides wear tiaras, and not just those belonging to the aristocracy.

the tiara question is an interesting one. Personally I don't see her wearing a tiara to avoid comparisons to Kate. If there were a family tiara from James side or some other appropriate connection then maybe. The brides of aristocracy generally have a real family heirloom to borrow - I just don't see Pippa wearing a 'crystal' tiara.

It would not surprise me if she were to wear a diamond brooch or jeweled hair pins in her hair - some kind of real bling. Also I expect her to 'borrow' Kate's wedding earrings since they are the acorns of the Middleton family crest.

The reception will be at the Middleton's house. They can't hold a very large reception inside the house because it's not big enough. People would be in the mingling in the bathroom. It's very reasonable to hold the party in an outside space.

We all have opinions, but we have to understand the situation first. A great deal of people have their wedding receptions and other parties in very large tents. It all depends on how many people are invited as well.

Pippa isn't acting royal the royals have the advantage of having very large palaces and castles to hold their parties. The Middleton's have to build a temporary structure to hold a large gathering of this size. They have the money, so they can do what they want.

This is the brides day and brides usually get what they want on their special day. Us grooms just show up and eat cake. At the end of the day that's what's it's all about, eating cake!

That I did not realize. But I don't believe an outdoor affair suits a tiara. J MO. I also like the glass enclosure instead of tent. Saw one and they had lovely drapes on ceilings to off set glaring sun and heat, with them cascading down wall to make a lovely setting. Wood flooring made a really nice area. Perfect for a bit of privacy when a home will not accommodate all those people and still want it as private as possible and convenient for those attending. I know weddings now are many times affairs in other countries or on islands in the Caribbean which requires additional costs and not always convenient to others.

Interesting. Pippa had her own diamond acorn leaf earrings at the royal wedding, do you think Catherine will borrow those and they'll just pull a switch?

The actual wedding is inside the church. Not outside. The marquee is for the reception.

It sounds like the reception might be inside too, at the Englefield House. The marquee might just be for the evening party.

There are many threads about people who are in some way connected to royalty, even if they are not royal themselves.

People have an interest in Pippa, and in her wedding. That is evident by the number of posts about it.

True. Diana's siblings all have threads. Camilla's kids each have a thread. Actually, it's a little strange that James Middleton doesn't have his own thread, he's gotten the short straw in comparison.

Now the DM says that Beatrice will probably be at Pippa's wedding also. I wonder if it's true, or if they are saying that just because she is back in London?
