It may not have been the wedding of the century, but Pippa Middleton and James Matthews’ nuptials were definitely more than memorable. Over the weekend, this charming British couple said their “I Dos,” and we were all over the live feed! So here are the six things we absolutely loved about their wedding.
1. The bride’s overall look
Pippa’s Giles Deacon gown was divine. On its own, it already screamed elegance and chic, but on Pippa–it was perfection! We love how the beautiful bride’s toned figure was just the perfect silhouette for her fully laced, high-necked, cap-sleeved gown. Plus points for her gorgeous updo too–so classy!
2. The flower girls and pageboys
We couldn’t help but notice that they didn’t only come in matching Pepa and Co. outfits–even their shoes all matched! The little boys in their collared, double-breasted polos, knee-length trousers, and high socks were adorable!!! And would you just take a look at the angelic flower girls in white, with puffy sleeves and ruffled necklines? The pretty pink bow was such a nice touch too! (And of course we couldn’t miss Prince George and Princess Charlotte!)
3. The drive out
It’s not everyday that you see newlyweds driving themselves out of the church! The couple made their way to the Middleton estate in a Jaguar E-Type, with James on the wheel and the Mrs. by his side.
4. The men in pin-striped trousers and colored vests
We love it when we see non-traditional wedding wear, and the men’s looks did not disappoint! The groom sported striped pants and a morning suit, with a sky blue vest and maroon polka dot tie for a preppy, debonair look. Even Prince William and Prince Harry came in striped trousers and colored vests and ties!
5. The ladies’ headwear
It wouldn’t be an English wedding without the headpieces! The Duchess of Cambridge sported a lovely blush Jane Taylor hat to match her equally lovely Alexander McQueen dress. Can we have this in the Philippines too, please? It’s so chic!
6. The flowers
Flower girls don’t always have to carry bouquets or baskets of flower petals. Take notes from Pippa and James’ flower girls who carried heart-shaped wreaths made of Waxflower and Gypsophilia strung together with a satin ribbon. The bride’s bouquet wasn’t your ordinary big bridal bouquet either–it was just the perfect size for her. A beautiful combination of peonies, sweet peas, astible, freesia, waxflowers, green belles, and mollis made by Lavender Green. Just beautiful.
