6 top bridal designers predict Pippa Middleton's wedding dress

Want to know what Pippa Middleton will take to the aisle in for her big day? Us too!  We asked five bridal designers to predict Pippa's wed-day style…



Here at Wedding HQ we've been pondering (basically ever since she got engaged) what the lovely Pippa Middleton might wear for her BIG DAY! So, we asked five amazing bridal designers to share their predictions for her bridal gown (and we shared our own prediction too! #eek!)... 


36 show-stopping embellished wedding dresses




Bridal label Justin Alexander pulled together an enchanting sketch for us to showcase what they picture Pippa taking to the aisle in for the big day...




'The Justin Alexander wedding dress designed for Pippa calls on her natural grace and affinity for classic silhouettes with eye-catching accents. 


The design is reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour with a modern influence, illustrated by the elegant silhouette, radiant beadwork, and luxurious fabric. Soft tulle drapes off the shoulder into a natural waist. The asymmetrical skirt elegantly cascades down to the hem. 


The fabric chosen is a silk satin and soft English net tulle accented with hand-appliquéd opulent beading and vintage-inspired Chantilly lace. The bead and lace work delicately fade out into the skirt leaving her wedding guests with just a glimpse of glimmer and an hint of intrigue as the bride walks past.'

Blackburn Bridal Couture designer, Russell Blackburn pictures Pippa in the below...


'I feel Pippa will go for a dress such as the Camille gown from my Blackburn Couture collection. The dress is form fitting to show off Pippa's stunning figure whilst still being demure enough for a Church ceremony. The eyelash lace adds a vintage feel whilst the crystal embellishment ensures Pippa will look extra glamourous and special on her big day - after all the nations eyes will be on her!'

We are in love with this design created by Savin London and can definitely picture Pippa in it!

Pippa would look stunning in the below design from Ian Stuart - similar to the 'Beltane' gown in his latest collection.


'I imagine Pippa would choose a completely different style from her sister’s wedding gown and also her iconic Maid of Honour silhouette, completely opting out of lace and heavy beading. I have designed a two piece, comprising of an Ivory Silk tulle coat, with an off the shoulder draped portrait neckline and long sheer draped sleeves… The dress, in Champagne silk Mikado, has a fitted bodice leading into a trumpet silhouette… I believe the combination of the two fabrics and mixture of two colours is a timeless, sophisticated and cool statement'.

How beautiful would Pippa look in the below from Karen Willis Holmes...


'Pippa would suit a fitted lace gown which is elegant and sophisticated to emphasise her gorgeous figure with a fluted full hem and dramatic train.  


I also predict Pippa will opt for a more fashionable approach such as off-the-shoulder or a low-cut back. Lace fabric will distinguish Pippa’s wedding dress from “the bridesmaid dress” that she wore at Kate’s wedding. She will, of course, look absolutely stunning.' 






The super-pretty Australian bridal brand, Grace Loves Lace brings us their thoughts...


'Pippa is fit, healthy and naturally elegant. I think she is going to look incredible in whatever she wears but I think a beautiful crisp white gown would highlight her tan and look really youthful. 


A fitted bust and waist is essential for her shape and I would imagine her in an off-the-shoulder or capped sleeve gown. Although I am sure she appreciates classic beauty I would love to see her rocking a modern geometric lace with some contouring and panelling to accentuate her shape, and a train to elongate her frame and add some drama.' 



WEDDING MAGAZINE - our prediction! 


Our Fashion Editor Sarah Tippett pulled together the below sketch to showcase what she imagines Pippa might wear for the big day...



'I'm thinking Pippa might wear something along the lines of the above. I've noticed she often showcases her beautiful slim arms with a lot of dresses so some capped sleeves with some glamorous embellishment on the shoulders would work well for this. In terms of the shape of the gown I think something feminine, in a loose mermaid silhouette would work beautifully for her...'
