PIPPA MIDLETON MARRIES
Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s little sister Pippa marries, looks gloriously happy in a gorgeous dress! Wish I could post pic’s. Best Of luck Pippa! 🙂
Hello Sunshine!!! That would be Florida 🙂
here’s a quick tidbit regarding the custom made earrings that pippa is wearing in her wedding day photos:
according to accredited news sources, it is being said that pippa’s “something old”*** are her earrings!!!
for her big day, pippa has chosen to wear the same pair of earrings that she wore to her sister’s, princess kate’s wedding six years ago in 2011.
pippa’s earrings are custom made pear-cut diamond drop earrings that her parents commissioned specifically for pippa from the elite London jewelry boutique of Robinson Pelham back in 2011 when pippa wore them for the first time to her sister kate’s wedding to Prince William.
in addition to her “something old” earrings, pippa also wore her antique Asscher cut engagement ring- again purchased from English jeweler Pelham — and an understated gold band made from the british traditional welsh gold.
to date, it has not been revealed what pippa’s choices were for her big day with regard to “something new, something borrowed, something blue, silver sixpence in her shoe.”
HOWEVER, NOT TO DETRACT FROM PIPPA, PRINCESS KATE DID FOLLOW THE WEDDING DAY RHYME IN FULL ON HER BIG DAY BACK IN 2011!!!
PRINCESS KATE’S “SOMETHING NEW” WAS ALSO A PAIR of custom-made diamond earrings given to her as a gift by her parents on her big wedding day. similarly to pippa’s, her parents again commissioned the earrings from the elite London jewelry boutique of Robinson Pelham. however, the design of kate’s earrings differed from pippa’s in that on kate’s pair of earrings the family had chosen to design an acorn and an oak leaf on them to represent the family coat of arms and they were created to specifically echo and complement the tiara that she borrowed from the Queen. in detail, the earrings were diamond-set designed oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the center.
FOR PRINCESS KATE, “old” was represented by a lace technique called Carrickmacross dating back to the 1800s on her wedding dress;
“borrowed” was represented by a sparkling diamond tiara borrowed from Prince William’s grandmother, the Queen. it was a 1936 Cartier “halo”. (fyi, the Queen loaning the bride a tiara is supposedly a tradition of royal weddings.)
“blue” was represented by a blue ribbon on her dress;
NOW, FOR THE BIG REVEAL, DID KATE HAVE A LUCKY SILVER SIXPENCE IN HER SHOE???
the answer is, YES, SHE DID!!!
***if you are wondering… there is an old rhyme that says in order to get good luck,
a bride should wear-
“something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue and a sixpence in her shoe…” on her wedding day.
IN REALITY, the full rhyme is in fact an Old English rhyme traditionally spelled
“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Silver Sixpence in your Shoe.”
according to the rhyme, “old” is for continuity; “new” is optimism for the future; “borrowed” is borrowed happiness; “blue” for purity, love, and fidelity;
and, “a sixpence in your shoe” is namely a british custom which is a wish for good fortune and prosperity.
here’s a hearty cheer to love, loves.
@josephinea thank you for all the details on what Pippa wore. I am in awe of that lace dress.
It is fitted to perfection on her.
does anyone remember the dress she wore to sister kate’s wedding? It was the back of the dress everyone was talking about…..adorable. 🙂
I am a Royal Watcher and like Princess Diana Wedding I also watched
Kate and William’s Wedding.
Who can forget that dress Pippa wore that is what everyone was talking about
at the time. Even certain celebrities made comments on how great she looked
even from the back.
Florida if you catch this how do you make a heart? 🙂
Kate did a great job handling the children just like Pippa did at her wedding.
Way to go sisters. 🙂
sheebs, I also remember princess Diana’s wedding. I remember the long train, the princess dress, the mass ceremony that lasted like 3 hours. unbelievable!!! it seems like yesterday. ♥ also, I too must agree on how helpful kate was at pippa’s wedding. there appeared to be no jealousy or ill will at all. it was nothing but love between pippa and kate. I loved it!!! it’s so nice to see sisters having such a solid friendship and love. so awesome. xoxo ♥
Josey at a time like this. Love is needed more then ever. ♥
I too watched Diana’s Wedding and it was in the wee hours of the night. 🙂
@sheba2011 And there she is! Thank you for posting the pic’s. I am a Royal watcher as well and think young Pippa’s
backside stole the limelight from sister Kate’s dress. The press went wild…..lol Yes, two lovely women and wish them the best of luck.
Sheba if I figure out to do a “heart” I will let you know. 🙂
you’re welcome florida!!! and yes, the dress pippa wore to her sister kate’s wedding was absolutely beautiful and pippa did indeed look stunning in it. so awesome. xoxo
PIPPA looked ABSOLUTELY STUNNING in her lace and silk wedding dress designed by british fashion designer Giles Deacon. I loved everything about it, especially the back detail. soooo gorgeous!!! I also thought her flower bouquet and the rest of the flower arrangements for the wedding were beautiful as well. everything was in fabulous taste and in the spirit of true fresh, clean and classic elegance.
speaking of classic elegance, PRINCESS KATE also looked ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS in her blush couture gown with matching fascinator (hat) designed by the fashion house of Alexander McQueen. my mom and I were overjoyed upon seeing this dress because my mom wore a blush dress extremely similar to kate’s for my first communion. I always knew my mom had fabulous taste. I love you mommy!!!! xoxo
and, many congrats and blessings to the entire middleton and matthews families.
here’s cheers to perfect, loves!!! xoxo
I don’t know if this is the place. I hope your father is doing well and you too.
Have a great Sunday I hope Florida see’s the pics. 🙂
sheebs, as usual your pics are sooo incredibly awesome!!! the detail of pippa’s dress totally came alive. just love them. also, thanks so much for asking about my dad. you are so sweet. his wounds are healing. i left a little note on the hd thread. i love you sheebs!!! it’s too bad we did not get to go to pippa’s wedding. my understanding is that even prince harry’s girlfriend, american actress meghan markle got taken to the reception. go figure.
we all should have been in movies….
as Humphrey Bogart said in the now classic 1942 movie Casablanca, “here’s looking at you, kid”…
oh, sigh.. xoxo
THANK YOU ALL for your kind comments, photos and excellent research on the Royals! For those of us who just can’t bare to wade through all the unkindness to find happiness in the news. : }
Beautiful! Thanks for posting. 🙂
@sheba2011 I know how to make the heart! ♥. I tried to put this on your thread but it got lost.
Here’s how. Push on the “Alt” key. Then using the side numeric keyboard (not the top numbers on your computer push “3” simultaneously. Release and heart shows up. It’s tiny I know but something!
♥ ♥ ♥ 🙂
♥♥♥♥@Florida3216 like this ♥♥♥♥
You are a sweetheart thank you so much! ♥♥♥:) 🙂
I hope this can help others out there in the Community as well. ♥♥
Pippa looked beautiful! Her wedding gown was stunning! I hope Pippa’s dress influences designers to put sleeves back on wedding gowns. I’ve never been crazy about strapless wedding dresses and only a few select brides actually look good in them.
