Who designed Pippa Middleton's wedding dress, how much did the Giles Deacon creation cost and who designed Kate's dress? | The Sun

PIPPA Middleton tied the knot with her hedge-fund manager partner James Matthews in May 2017 in Berkshire, wearing a bespoke gown.

Here's what you need to know about the dress and how it compares to her sister, Kate Middleton's wedding dress.

Who designed Pippa Middleton's wedding dress?

Giles Deacon designed the dress for Pippa's big day.

Pippa accessorised her bridal outfit with a Maidenhair fern tiara by Robinson Pelham and satin pumps with pearl detailing by Manolo Blahnik.

For her "something old", Pippa wore the same Robinson Pelham pearl earrings which she wore for Kate's wedding in 2011.

Designer Giles Deacon had been the favourite ever since he was spotted visiting Pippa and her mother Carole just before Christmas, holding a garment bag.

However at the time, Giles said: “I can never really comment on rumour

s. Until things are confirmed, it’s rumours.”

It is thought that the stunning cap-sleeved, white lace Giles Deacon creation cost in the region of £40,000.

Other designers who had been tipped to be in the running to design the gown include bridal specialist Suzanne Neville, red carpet favourite Jenny Packham, New Zealander Emilia Wickstead and Sarah Burton for McQueen, the designer of the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress.

How does it compare to her sister Kate's?

Kate's stunning wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton, the creative director of luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen.

Sarah worked secretly on the dress in the lead up to the big day, and she was only announced as the designer as Kate made her way to Westminster Abbey for the ceremony.

The dress is estimated to have cost £250,000, making it one of the most expensive dresses ever made.
