Pippa Middleton's 'something old' was a sweet tribute to her sister

Pippa Middleton's wedding attire was perfect from head to toe - including her special 'something old'.

Pippa Middleton proved to be a stunning bride as she wed financier James Matthews on Saturday.

Pippa, 33, was a vision in a white, lace gown by British designer Giles Deacon but the bride's 'something old' was a nod to the day she became a household name - her sister's wedding.

Eagle-eyed royal followers may have noticed that Pippa's earrings were the same as those she wore when big sister Kate wed Prince William in 2011.

According to PEOPLE, the diamond and pearl earrings feature an acord and an oak leaf, which both appear on the Middleton family crest. They were created by jeweller Robinson Pelham after being commissioned by Kate for her wedding day.

The royal wedding catapulted Pippa to world fame thanks to a figure-hugging Alexander McQueen bridesmaid's dress. Ever since, people have speculated about what Pippa would wear on her own wedding day - and she did not disappoint!

The a-line dress showed off the bride's gorgeous figure, thanks to capped sleeves, a cut-out at the back, and a corsetted bodice. 

According to the designer, "The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliqued to create an illusion of the dress having 'no seams'."

"The lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt, which has layer upon layer to enable a floor-sweeping movement," Giles Deacon said in a statement.

The stunning gown was rumoured to cost a whopping £40,000 ($70,000).

Pippa's bespoke veil was also embroidered with pearls, as were her satin Manolo Blahnik shoes.

Attending the wedding was Pippa's older sister, Duchess Catherine, and her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry. 

Kate and Will's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were in Pippa's bridal party as a page boy and flower girl.
