Wedding day is nearly here...

Words by Lexxi Davis

With just under two weeks left to what has already become the most talked about wedding of the year, Pippa Middleton's wedding dress is possibly the one thing we're all waiting to see.

Boasting an impressive guest list already, including royal siblings Kate Middleton and Prince William, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - who is allowed to attend the whole wedding, despite the no ring, no bring rule. The wedding is set to be a lavish affair.

The wedding, said to be costing the couple a small fortune, is expected to have 150 guests attending, but some estimates have gone as high as 350 – which is the church's capacity.

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.

The latest news of the outfit we're all dying to get a glimpse of, is the above average amount of fittings Pippa has reportedly gone to. Whether this be down to pre-wedding weight loss, or simply wanting the dress to be perfect (because, obviously), the bride-to-be has apparently had the dream dress tailored five times in order to fit her figure.

According to E! News, a source close to Giles Deacon's team let slip about the bespoke gown, describing it as being 'very simple, elegant' and that 'very few people have seen the finished thing'. So from everything we've heard, Pippa Middleton's wedding dress is going to be a stunner. Reportedly all hand made right here in the UK.

Does this mean we can expect lace details, like sister Kate's famous McQueen number? Only time (and a lot of social-media stalking) will tell.

We're just wondering where our invite has got to...
