Pippa Middleton pulled a Kate when she recycled a dainty pair of earrings that she first wore on her big sister's wedding day - and we couldn't think of a more sentimental "something old" for her special day.
Pippa Middleton, right, and her new husband, James Matthews, following their wedding ceremony at St Mark's Church in Englefield, west of London, on May 20, 2017.
Middleton, 33, is not royalty. Especially when it's a royal-type wedding, and there's all those long prayers to contend with.
She arrived in a vintage Jaguar to enter the church on the arm of her father.
Spencer accompanied his older brother, hedge fund manager James Matthews, to the ceremony this morning in Englefield as he Wednesday Pippa, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge. UK's the Press Association also reports that the bride wore a bespoke veil made from fine tulle with embroidered pearls by Stephen Jones. Then it was off for champagne and, later, a short spin in a different Jaguar.

"You can't do better than that", she said.
The wedding plan was not without risks - including having such young children in the wedding party.
Prince George will be a page boy and Charlotte - at the tender age of 2 - will be a bridesmaid.
Tennis star Roger Federer and his wife were among the guests at the service.
The dress was constructed with a high neckline and a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart-shaped space in the back. Pippa Middleton, younger sister of Kate, Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, was married in a small English country church on Saturday surrounded by royals and celebrities but those hoping for a dash of Hollywood were left in the cold.
After the ceremony, the new Mr. and Mrs. made their exit in a vintage auto, much like the Duke and Duchess.
If you are as anxious as I was, never fear: Although the 35-year-old did not attend with her royal boo thang, the Hot Ginger Prince, she did show up at the reception afterward.
The big clear-up was under way yesterday after Pippa Middleton's £700,000 wedding where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined guests, some of whom partied until 4am. He confirmed the relationship in November when he complained about intrusive press coverage.
