On Saturday, Pippa Middleton will be saying “I do” to hedge-fund manager James Matthews, and we will be glued to our phones, TVs, and computer screens, waiting for our first glimpse of the socialite bride-to-be in her gorgeous gown. I mean, obviously it’s gotta be gorgeous, right? It just has to be. In fact, we already have a few ideas of just how gorgeous it’ll be…
Clearly, after watching Middleton take on bridesmaid duties at 2011’s Royal Wedding and rock that Alexander McQueen bridesmaids’ dress, girlfriend has gotten this whole walking-down-the-aisle thing down pat. But finding a wedding dress that could compete with her older sister’s famous Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown definitely sounds like a challenge. But according to the details that have since been revealed about Pippa’s wedding dress, this bride has totally conquered it, smartly opting for a frock that’s wholly unlike the one the elder Middleton sister chose.
It’s been rumored for some time now that British designer Giles Deacon is the one crafting the bride-to-be’s still-top-secret wedding dress, and recently, a source close to the designer’s team has let it slip to E! News that the custom gown is “very simple, elegant, and it’s all handmade.” OMG. You guys, this dress is real! This is all really happening!

The words “very simple” are certainly not ones we’d use to describe the Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 wedding dress and its staggering train, but clean elegance definitely sounds like Pippa—and we can’t wait to see her rock it.
But apparently, this dress will remain under lock and key until the big day. “Very few people have seen the finished thing,” the source also revealed. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to see this “simple, elegant” wedding dress. (The wedding is less than a week away, you guys!)
But until then, thanks to these dress details, we do have a few predications when it comes to Pippa Middleton’s bridal gown. After studying the previous collection of her rumored dress designer Giles Deacon, observing this bride-to-be’s sport-chic and classic style, and stalking the latest bridal runway shows, we’ve rounded up our favorite picks for what Pippa will be wearing come Saturday.
Place your bets, people!
