Pippa Middleton Has an Unusual Fashion Demand for Her Wedding Guests

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews

GETTY ENGAGED Pippa Middleton will marry James Matthews next week

Marrying hedge-fund financier James Matthews (aka MIC Spencer Matthews brother), in St Mark's Church in Berkshire on Saturday 27 May, Pippa soon-to-be Matthews is getting all the final details in place - most importantly, the dress.

In addition to beauty treatments, she's been hitting the gym hard and has joined Grace Belgravia, an exclusive club that promises to create the ideal "Hollywood" pins - at a cost of £55,000 for a lifetime membership. "She's a traditional girl and just wanted to get married at home", a source told The Sun UK.

There were also reports that there would be a "no ring, no bring" rule at Pippa Middleton's wedding with regard to plus ones.

Pippa Middleton's wedding will set the Middleton clan's patriarch back around £247,000 - roughly NZ$463,692, according to the latest financial breakdown.

While the bride - whose wedding might be gatecrashed by locals - hasn't confirmed any details about her dress, nor its designer, a source close to Deacon's team has reportedly let slip to E!


Pippa's niece and nephew will also take a starring role - Princess Charlotte, two, will be a bridesmaid while three-year-old Prince George will be a page boy.

As stated earlier, Pippa wants a more modest wedding than her sister.

Last month, when asked about the possibility of designing the gown, he told HELLO! But if your sister is a future Queen, she is going to upstage the bride and draw attention. It's a tricky situation for Pippa.

According to The Telegraph, Pippa has stipulated that guests pack two outfits: one for the ceremony, one for the reception. She would want her sister by her side, as who else would she trust to make things go well? "Kate would want to be in the background as much as possible". Whether or not the request is true, it's certainly an odd one.

Another potential change could be the last minute inclusion of Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle.
