And the wedding of Kate Middleton’s younger sister, which is said to have a guest list of 350, is unsurprisingly going to be a very expensive affair.

The nuptials are set to be costing in the region of £247,000 – which is estimated to be around 15 times the price of the average wedding.

The whopper price tag comes despite the fact that Pippa and James – who is the older brother of former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews – opted to have their reception at her family home.

The pair will be erected a giant marquee in the garden of the Middleton family pile in Berkshire, which is said to be costing £65,000.

They’ve also splashed out on fancy outdoor toilets for the event, which come with a fee of £4,000.

There will be no expense spared on the food and beverage on offer for the glamorous wedding either.

Catering is rumoured to be costing £70,000, while there will be 233 bottles of champagne keeping the guests merry, costing almost around £10,000.

Pippa’s dress, which is rumoured to be a bespoke gown by designer Giles Deacon, is also said to come with a price tag of £10,000.

However, 33-year-old Pippa has apparently asked her wedding guests to bring an extra outfit with them, so that they can change ahead of the wedding reception in the evening.

Another rumoured rule Pippa has put in place about her big day is that guests can only bring spouses to the ceremony, ruling out unmarried boyfriends and girlfriends.
