Pippa Middleton's wedding invitations were quite simple, but elegant

​​​​​​On Saturday morning, a good portion of the world scavenged the internet, hoping to get whatever inside scoop they could on Pippa Middleton's wedding. After all, it was one of the most high-profile, high society events of the year -- and royal fans could not get enough of the nuptials.

They were calling it Britain's wedding of the year.

When you think of something so high-profile, it's easy to assume the affair would be an all-out extravaganza. Of course, Kate's wedding to Prince William in 2011 at Westminster Abbey was incredibly (and expectedly) lavish, viewed by millions of people around the globe. But how would Pippa's wedding compare?

See all the pictures from Pippa's wedding day:

A few days before the wedding, Bridebook revealed its estimate for the wedding's total costs. Pippa's nuptials were expected to amount to over $300,000 -- so you can imagine we envisioned swans, hundreds of guests and expensive champagne for the big day. Especially for a wedding that cost "ten times the UK average" (according to the Sun), we expected a Kardashian-like gala.

The celebrations were attended by high-profile guests like Roger Federer, Prince Harry and girlfriend Meghan Markle, plus 350 more people. But, not all parts of the wedding were as extravagant as we anticipated.

Did you see Pippa's wedding gown? Designed by Giles Deacon, it was very simple and elegant. Similarly, Pippa's and James' invitations were tasteful and understated.

According to Glamour, the invitations perfectly complemented Pippa's wedding theme. "Middleton went with a mostly classic look for the event. Her color scheme consisted of soft grass green, rose, and white for her fun-sized wedding party," Glamour wrote.

It's classy, timeless and gorgeous. We couldn't be more in love.
