Pippa Middleton unofficially became the world’s most popular bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding in 2011.

The British socialite attracted attention for her figure-hugging ivory Alexander McQueen dress at her sister, Kate's royal wedding with Prince William in 2011.

Following her engagement to James Matthews, 41, in the summer of 2016, the couple are now ready to tie the knot.

Below are the exciting details we know about the ceremony that is already tagged as the 'Wedding of the Year' by the British press.

5. The dress

Nothing is certain yet but the list of possible designers for the dress has been narrowed down to a few names which include David Beckham’s wife, Victoria as well as Jenny Peckham.

However the most likely designer to get the job seems to be Giles Deacon who was spotted meeting Pippa and her mother in 2016.

"I can never really comment on rumors," he told HELLO! in February. "Until things are confirmed it's just rumors."
