One of the biggest stars to emerge from the Royal Wedding was Pippa Middleton, sister of the bride, who is currently the most famous Maid of Honour in the world! Her sleek---and dare I say sexy---Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress is sure to change the face of bridesmaid fashion as we know it, ushering in a new era of streamlined silhouettes and creamy colours. It really isn't taboo to choose white or ivory for your bridesmaids, and it can look very chic (as you can see). But besides standing around and looking pretty, what exactly does a Maid of Honour do? You can refer to our Bridal Party Guide for pointers, but basically your Maid of Honour is someone you can depend on throughout the planning process and the big day itself. Pippa did an outstanding job of holding Kate's train and wrangling all the flower girls while looking cool and collected all the while! Plus, apparently it was Pippa's idea to serve bacon butties (sandwiches) and ice cream during the post-wedding party. Comfort snacks are definitely something to consider incorporating into your wedding reception. As for Pippa's look, check out this Dessy dress---it's a similar style, and it's budget-friendly, too!
