Pippa Middleton’s recent engagement has us reminiscing about the Alexander McQueen gown she wore for her sister’s wedding in 2011. In case you forgot, it was the full-length, figuring-hugging, ivory dress, which put Pippa on the map.

We’ve taken a style cue from Pippa and selected some bridesmaid dresses that we think she ought to consider for her own bridesmaids. We think they’d be a perfect hit for our readers too, because let’s be honest, our readers are just as fabulous as the Middleton sisters!


Dessy — 2921

We know Pippa would swoon over this Dessy gown in lux chiffon. The high neck and sequin belt offer the same simple, yet glamorous elegance that we saw in her Alexander McQueen gown.

Available for order from Always Elegant Bridal & Tuxedo
1199 Butte House Road, A
Yuba City, CA 95993


Gather & Gown — Newport Gown

The Middleton sisters prove that modesty can still be sexy. We know that Pippa would want her bridesmaids to share the same style sentiment. This Gather & Gown ‘Newport Gown’ captures the same modesty that we have come to expect from Pippa. The cap-sleeves are so romantic and the open back shows the perfect hint of skin.

Available for order at The Clothes Mine Bridal & Formalwear
60 Main Street
Sutter Creek, CA 95685


Sorella Vita — 8745

Since Pippa is not marrying into the royal family like her sister, we anticipate she may not have quite as formal an affaire, and perhaps will take a few liberties with her gown selections. Perhaps she’d like her best gals to rock this cocktail length gown by Sorella Vita. Still perfectly modest and romantic, but also on the fun side of the spectrum.
