Pippa Middleton Inspired Bridal Styling Tips!

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!

 

The Earrings

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!

 

The Ring

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.

When wearing a dress with a low neck like this one, make sure you play it up with some sparkle. Prong set diamond earrings or a touch of color with classic emerald oval earrings add subtle elegance without being gaudy or overshadowing the dress.

With these masterpieces around your ears, you’ll feel so bridalicious, you’ll want to take at least 100 pre-wedding kissy selfies. And who could blame you?

 

Love From Both Sides

If Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress taught us anything it’s that all eyes are on both the front of the dress and the rear especially if you have added detailing at the back or a long train as many SYTTD brides favor.

A piece with all over sparkle like this lavish 5 row diamond cuff will blind all eyes as you walk down the aisle—in a good way!

 

Just Say Yes

Every bride wants the ring to be just as impressive as her dress. The diamond encrusted ring worn by SYTTD bride Persia Zarrabi looked killer with her magnificent cinched cut-out waist dress.

Never settle for anything sub-par for your big day. As “Say Yes to the Dress” teaches us, you’re allowed to be picky (and maybe even a little bratty) for your epic day. So get out there and make some decisions, girl! Good luck.
