Only a few days to go! This Saturday, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews will tie the knot in what seems to be one of the most hotly anticipated weddings of the year. The couple will be saying "I do" in a much more modest ceremony than that of her big sister Kate, but nonetheless, it sounds like it's going to be an affair to remember. Here's everything we know so far about Pippa's May 20 wedding. 


Pippa and her hedgefund manager (aristocratic) boyfriend will be exchanging their vows at the quaint St. Mark's church in Englefield, Berkshire. It's been reported that Pippa and James have implemented a "no ring, no bring" policy for the wedding, but recent reports have said that couple has been making a few exceptions -- namely for Pippa's brother's girlfriend, Donna Air, and Prince Harry's girlfriend, Meghan Markle. 

Thus far, guesstimates for the guest list are at 150 people, but apparently some insiders are claiming that the wedding may wind up having up to 350 guests. (Televisions have reportedly been set up for guests who can't get a seat in the church.) Regardless of the head count, though, this wedding is definitely going to be a night for the books. In guests' invitations, the couple reportedly asked everyone to bring two changes of clothing. (What exactly is going to go on at this wedding?)

As for the reception, Pippa's keeping it in the family by having it in her parents' backyard in Berkshire, London. Earlier on in the week, a massive conservatory-style marquee was erected in Mike and Carole Middleton's backyard. Not too shabby.

Pippa, who in some ways stole the show at her sister's 2011 wedding, also isn't afraid of a little competition at her wedding. Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be serving as page boy and flower girl. Talk about adorable. 

The best man is reportedly going to be James's younger brother, Spencer Matthews, and bookies are putting their money on the duchess being the Maid of Honor. 

As the day gets closer, more details are likely to be revealed. But until then, we wait. And you know how the old saying goes: Anticipation is part of the fun.
