After the engagement was announced the view of several publications was that, given Pippa's previous occupation as a party planner, she would organize her own wedding.
Only 150 guests will attend the ceremony, in contrast to the 1,900 people who were invited to Kate and William's wedding.
According to Bridebook's reckoning, wedding caterers The Admirable Crichton are likely to be serving up the canapés for Pippa and James' guests: the company holds the Royal Warrant for the Prince of Wales for catering excellence.
First off, the clothes alone are costing a bomb, with Pippa's wedding dress rumoured to be designed by British fashion designer Giles Deacon, and judging by past celebrity commissions, is expected to cost on average £10,000.
Hamish added, "Weddings have become increasingly lavish over recent years mainly due to couples getting married when they are older, and hence being able to spend more, and social media raising everyone's expectations of a wedding".More news: North Korea will have dialogue with U.S. under 'right conditions'

A source told The Sun: "Her mum has been very involved in all the wedding planning and she wants to show off their house to all their friends". The whole world discovered Pippa Middleton in a sublime long white dress and all eyes turned to her. The Duchess of Cambridge hasn't been given an official role, even though she was tipped to be the matron of honour. Prince George will be a page boy, and Princess Charlotte will be a bridesmaid!
JAMES Matthews and Pippa Middleton have stepped out for a date night after putting the final pieces in place for their wedding day in two weeks. She is working out four or five times a week, according to Entertainment Tonight, and she is supposedly keeping to the extremely restrictive Sirtfood Diet. She has reportedly offered to look after the children at the event instead, and may do a reading. She's making room for Prince Harry's serious girlfriend Meghan Markle, though.
How has she been preparing for the big day? Kate and William famously called in a favour from Ellie Goulding, who serenaded them with a wedding playlist of their favourite tracks, including a cover of Elton John's 'Your Song'.
"Pippa wants the day to be ideal".
