I think the black dresses are gorgeous(although I wouldn't go with unrelieved black).

But I also like the ombre, and those that are white with just a touch of color.

Do we think Pippa will wear a tiara for her wedding?

She might but I hope not. I believe Pippa wants a contrast between her sister's wedding and her own and a non Royal tiara would be a pale imitation, I think. It might be different if she was marrying an aristocrat. However, I'm hoping for something different in the hair and headdress department. A nice large piece of jewellery pinning the veil perhaps.

I am probably the only one that really wants this to be just an old fashioned small family/friends only wedding. Traditional gown [no bare shoulders] men dressed traditionally and children seen only in procession in church then tucked away with sitter rest of day so adults can enjoy the event. No little darlings running around at reception making noise and being a pain when they are actually too young to even realize what the event is all about. But, they are close family and belong for photos. The only ones making a big deal about all this is the media and most of them are scum anyway. Pippa has never gone out of her way to invite but has continued her life without interviews or selling her time. In fact, she has much more class by just keeping a calm pleasant face than some of the other "dates" of royals that hide their faces and almost look annoyed or mad all the time. So I don't ever blame Pippa or her brother for the stories written about her, just the mutated media. She is just a normal young woman. I am sure that if the media followed any of us around like they do her, tons of people would find us non-interesting with no proper role also. Just a boring normal human living life without wanting handouts from the government and asking for nothing but happiness. JMHO

I doubt it.
Stephen Jones was seen with Carole, so if he is designing a special headdress for Pippa it almost certainly won't include a tiara.

(Though I suppose he could be designing for Carole).

I dont see her going for a tiara for two reasons

1 She won't want to be compared to Kate

2 Brides without any aristocratic roots wear tiaras as they seem to be going for a princess like look. I don't see Pippa going for the princess ball gown, not just because of her sister.


I don't see a fascinator. But I think she will have jewelry it something in her hair. I am starting to imagine a Downtown abbey or Gatsby style, dress and hair ornament wise. I think the style suits her. And it would also be sleek and unlike Kate while different enough from her infamous bridesmaid gown.

I am hoping she'll wear a nice veil and maybe a small headpiece of some sort that goes with the veil.

Honestly some folks cannot be believed...it's her sister's children, her niece and nephew she's having in her wedding (and possibly her sister) it's not the 'royals' she is having. If she was interested in trading on that she could of done a big all out wedding (not like she doesn't have the money to do it) and made a big to-do. Instead it's a small (relatively speaking) private wedding.

Really if you don't like her then don't post in threads about her.

If true, ouch! That's a huge loss, but a sign of the times at that level.

Not happening!

It's one thing to cash in indirectly through association (I'm sure PP did well out of it's royal association), but a blatant cheque in hand for the couple following pics of their royal bridal party members is not something Carole for one would allow.

He probably won't even notice it anyhow!

Carole has that kind of clout? Strange.

I would have no problem with them getting paid for a spread. Why not? Perks happen all the time for social reasons, why should this be any different? Far less egregious than some perks I know of.

Not sure I agree about the loss. That loss is 2/3 of total value. That's huge.

She's the Machiavelli of the class warriors, just through her sheer existence.

I still say it is tacky.

As for Matthews' losses, isn't he worth something like $40 million? So he probably can absorb the loss without resorting to selling his wedding pictures.

Yes. I see her in a gown like Carolyn Bessette wore when she married John Kennedy, Jr.

Hardly a scoop from Camilla Tominey , daughter's family stays at parents house.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/...dge-Middletons

Why would the in laws stay at the Middletons house? The Middletons didn't stay at BP for Kate's wedding and there is way more space there.

Harry probably doesn't even spend the night. His policemen can just drive him home afterwards. Berkshire isn't that far from London.
