The entire event was planned with expert precision, with the creme-de-la creme of British society present for the big shabang. Taking place within a picturesque country setting, the wedding was a dreamboat of a spectacle. And as if the day couldn’t be any more wonderful, it was also blessed with sunny weather, shining brilliantly over the lady of the hour, Pippa Middleton-- c'est magnifique! With effortlessly beauty, and the collaboration of her pro stylists, Pippa dazzled for the cameras, setting a new standard for brides-to-be.
A Glance at Pippa’s Overall Bridal Look
Pippa’s approach to her bridal look can be best described as simplistic romance. Her dress was textured entirely in lace with an unconventionally high neckline and short sleeves, offering a modest yet feminine allure. Her hair was sweetly swept back into a sensual updo, neat and precise, without a single hair out of place. She wore a floral white headband to accent an otherwise plain hairstyle, giving her a subtle regal vibe. Finally, her jewelry was left surprisingly plain, letting her inner royalty shine through!
Classic and timeless, Pippa chose a drop-down pearl earring style. They offer a splash of elegance, while also giving her more glamor, particularly to balance out a plainer hairdo. Pearls offer a mature and sophisticated touch, but if you’re more of a trendy bride, you can opt for diamond versions instead.
These convertible earring jackets by Gottlieb & Sons give you that expressive drop-down effect, but are much ritzier than Pippa’s pearl ones. You can also order these earrings in a variety of precious metals, including rose gold, the most fashionable choice of the season!
Pippa’s ring is unlike anything we’ve seen among most celebrities and socialites. It features a radiant cut, surrounded by an octagon halo shape filled with clear diamonds. The band, by comparison, is thin, accentuating the weight and prestige of the setting. This style is a tastefully reminder that brides don't need to necessarily go for the typical halo designs, but should explore different variations of this style.
Like Pippa, you can embrace a more geometric style halo such as this vintage inspired engagement ring by Gottlieb & Sons. With its emerald cut diamond center and diamond-encrusted band, it offers a little more razzle dazzle than Pippa’s rind, but is still refreshingly original.
You can also take inspiration from Pippa’s octagonal halo with this precious version by Gottlieb & Sons. Yet, this style takes the ambiance a step further with its artistic touches, making this piece timeless. The originality is centered in the band which is uniquely creative with its twisting decorative effect.
You can feel like royalty any day with these graceful jewelry pieces. Perhaps your wedding won’t take place in the upper echelons of England, but your Pippa-inspired bridal look will surely bring you close to the dream-- minus the attendance of the paparazzi and media crew.
