This Is The Best Wedding Accessory According To Bride-to-Be Pippa Middleton

Fascinating fascinators.

share with your friends

It's happening: Pippa Middleton is walking down the aisle this Saturday. Royal wedding watchers around the world are gleefully waiting to find out who will be there, what they'll be wearing – and, more importantly, whether Prince Harry will end up bringing his American actress girlfriend, Meghan Markel, despite the "no ring, no bring" rule. 

While this is not a royal wedding, Middleton's sister's ties to Prince William have already made it a very high-profile occasion, with announcements detailing Kate and Wills' involvement in the ceremony coming from Kensington Palace itself: the 150-person guest list includes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, whose children Prince George and Princess Charlotte have landed roles as page boy and flower girl, respectively. 

The younger sister of the Duchess is marrying hedge fund manager James Matthews at St.Mark's Church in Berkshire, England, about six miles away from where the bride grew up. Obviously all eyes will be on the younger Middleton's wedding gown, which is rumored to have been designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen (who also designed the ivory bridesmaid dress that shot her – and dat booty – to fame back in 2011), but with such an impressive list of names in attendance, we can't wait to see what the guests will be wearing, too. 

Since this is a big event, we obviously have high expectations for the guests to dress to the nines in sophisticated, elegant ensembles. We predict there will be a lot of beiges and blues – plus, given it's a church wedding in England, attendees will undoubtedly be wearing a selection of beautiful (and bizarre) hats and headpieces. We're already making bets as to who will win the prize for Most Fascinating Fascinator. It's an accessory favored by the bride-to-be, and we are sure that her guests will show off their finest Middleton-esque millinery in homage. We haven't forgotten the fascinator Middleton paired with a black-and-white peplum dress a few years ago, as well as her extravagant floral selection complete with net veil for another wedding. We expect nothing less on the heads of her esteemed invitees. 

Whether you made the list or not to the Middleton-Matthews nuptials, we're sure you'll find an occasion to sport an adventurous piece of head gear this season – after all, one gorgeous fascinator can pull a whole look together.
