Obsessed with Pippa Middleton’s wedding? Even if you don’t have a royal budget you can still throw a reception fit for a queen — here’s how.
Pippa Middleton‘s celebration was dubbed ‘the wedding of the year,’ as royals, celebrities, and athletes were invited to celebrate the couple in the English countryside — and the photos made it clear that it lived up to all the hype surrounding her wedding day! From her gorgeous gown to the lavish decorations, we spied a slew of trends we can expect to see throughout the year — and here’s how you can incorporate them into your big day, too!
High-Neck Lace Gowns:
After Pippa, 33, came down the aisle in her gorgeous, custom-made Giles Deacon gown, the interest in high-neck, lace dresses is definitely going to surge — and it’s a great silhouette that can be worn to both traditional and unconventional weddings. It also exuded a classic, timeless vibe that doesn’t feel too trendy, making it a great choice for your big day.
Pippa opted for a vintage Jaguar and we love the idea of selecting a vintage vehicle rather than a traditional luxury sedan — it’s so chic and it’s perfect for photos. It’s a nice touch that can leave a lasting impact on your big day — and Pippa proved that you don’t need a white car just because it’s your wedding day.
Flowers & Rustic Touches:
Pippa’s “Enchanted Forest” came to life inside a glass dome, where the bride threw an exquisite wedding in the English countryside — and we can certainly expect to see many brides gravitate towards the rustic, ethereal touches rather than the sleek celebrations of the past. While Pippa’s hefty floral bill certainly isn’t practical or attainable, you can incorporate the same types of flowers into your decor. Pippa opted for Sweet Peas, Peonies, garden Roses, Philadelphus, Freesia, Astilbe, and Jasmine. Have your reception outside or in a garden to keep the feel of the outdoors alive.
