We are back with a bit of background on this Saturday’s wedding (aww, c’mon, you know which wedding!) and a look at the ME + EM America’s Cup collection.

Of course, we’re talking about the wedding of Kate’s younger sister, Pippa, to financier James Matthews. The Daily Mail’s Rebecca English reports the event will have a Scottish theme. From her story: the Mail can reveal one of the most fascinating aspects yet – the big day is going to have a Scottish theme.

James’s father, David, a former mechanic who made a fortune through the car trade, owns a castle and 10,000-acre estate 15 miles from Loch Ness in the Highlands. His acquisition of the property in 2008 also bought him the courtesy title of the Laird of Glen Affric, which will be inherited by his eldest son….that would make Pippa Lady Glen Affric one day.

And from The Sun‘s coverage, a report that the wedding will be:

….a tartan-tinged affair celebrating the groom’s Scottish heritage.

Expect haggis canapes, bagpipes and whisky galore.
