I think it’s a royal wedding tradition? I thought the dress looked awesome on her.

@Tswife4ever:  I liked it.  It made her blend in instead of stand out.  Her dress was gorgeous and understated… if she’d have been wearing a color she would’ve caught my eye over all of Kate’s white, you know?  Instead she kind of looked like an extension of the train 🙂

 

Also all of the ‘bridesmaids’ were in white.

Actually I loved her dress! It didn’t look to me like she was upstaging Kate at all. Also since she was the only adult part of her bridal party I thought it complemented Kate.

all the little girls were in white too.

I liked it. I don’t really get the whole “Nobody wears white but the bride” deal…

Loved it!  I think when the bride in question is as gorgeous as Kate and marrying a prince a lot of the usual concerns about bridemaids stealing the show aren’t really relevant.

i would kill for their figure, i could never wear a dress like Pippa’s – i was kinda hoping thats how Kate’s dress would look – i loved the top, but i wish the bottom would have been more form fitting.

I guess I just expected her to be in white.  The only other two royal weddings I have watched on TV were those of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and both of them had their bridesmaids all in white.

It’s pretty enough and looks smashing on her, but it’s not really my taste.

I wasn’t super surprised about the white. I like that it was a nice bright clean white and not frilly.

Love her hair though!

It is tradition in Britain for all attendents to wear white-supposedly wards off evil spirts.  I love it!

I was sort of expecting it. I think it is ok because it was clearly planned. MOB and MOG also wore white.
