Don't like that flounce. She'd look better in something more stream-lined.

Wow she looks incredible- her athleticism is amazing. She does some pretty extreme sports that require that level of fitness. I find it inspirational.

I also really like the dress.

I'm not impressed by both dress and shoes. In the pictures they both look 10 years older than they actually are.

Agree, they look 10 years older. But this is not the "fault" of the dress and shoes. More fault on the veeery muscoulous arms and the coffure..... Maybe the Pre-Wedding stress?

In no way do these two look like they are in their mid-forties. They are very much what mid-thirties looks like imo - muscular, yes. Trim, svelte. I'm a bit nonplussed by the observation. Oh well.

I don't think they look older than what they are either. Just a very happy couple about to be married and start a life together.

I agree. They both look like well dressed early 30s who are happy to be together. I don't get that they look really old either. I guess we all see what we want to see in other people for whatever personal reason.

I sincerely hope that they are extremely happy in their married life as true happiness is the main core of a brilliant life. Nothing can ever beat it.

I think the dress would look much better without the flounce (and I don't mind a flounce).

Pippa can have a hard/drawn look to her at times .

That's the make up. She looked great at her book launch a while back.

Well James is 41 so nothing wrong with saying he doesn't look early 30s

Pippa has a bit of Kate look pre wedding. Bit orange in some photos, might be lighting. And she is so muscular, looks a bit bobble head in some photos. Again may be a mix of picture and her outfit.

They look quite happy though.

So if paps are to be believed, there are five bridesmaids. Three have been identified, though only one confirmed.

Princess charlotte 2
Avia Horner also 2 (dad works with James)
Tallulah Goldsmith (Pippa cousin)

The other two not mentioned. My guesses, if report is right on 5.

Alice St John Websters daughter Rose who is a year older than George

One of James' nieces. Lily is 15, the same age as Tallulah so may be a good pair. Her younger sister is 12.

No mentioning how many page boys.

Sensing she has a strapless gown, to accent those muscular arms..

Oh gosh, I hope not! Every woman and her dog has adopted the strapless look on their wedding day for the past decade. Enough! I'm hoping for something original, even a bit edgy for Pippa's gown.

If you look at pictures from weddings the royals have attended, very few bridal dresses have been strapless. Even Natasha Archer's actual wedding dress was not strapless.
I think Pippa will go strapless for her reception dress but not the actual ceremony.

I don't expect her to be in a strapless gown. That would kinda surprise me.

Traditionally the COE asked brides shoulders to be covered, like many Catholic Churches still do. The rules thohgh have lightened over the years. As we see with the BRF and their gowns, they seem to continue the tradition.

As OH pointed out, at the weddings we see the cambridges attend, majority of the brides continue. Upper crust sticking to some more traditions.

I'd be surprised if Pippa went strapless. I do think she will go less traditional though.

I still think she would look fantastic in a Gatsby or Downton abbey feel, a sleek gown cut wise but elaborate. Great little head piece.

I concur about strapless. No.

This is quite exciting. Hard to say (from my end) what she will wear. I loved her gown at Kate's wedding. Something similar would be my guess but I am clueless.

I wonder about her flowers, her choice of bouquet.

And then there's Carole, she's no slouch in the fashion department, and Kate herself, as well as the bridal party. So, we wait.

BTW will we see a rehearsal dinner thing? People arriving for that?

While she would look great in the style of dress she wore as Kate's bridesmaid I don't see her wearing anything like that since such a big deal was made about it and how it fit her.

Maybe she will do something very romantic...can't wait to see!

But it's her wedding and she's a private citizen. Why should 'people' be a concern? The other was at the wedding of a future Queen, wasn't that the issue?
