With less than 24 hours to go before Kate Middleton and Prince William say "I do," news has emerged surrounding the bridal party's dresses.

Led by Middleton's younger sister Pippa, the bridesmaids will reportedly wear bespoke dresses from British designer Nicki Macfarlane, People reports.

Macfarlane, who designs a ready-to-wear bridesmaid line in addition to custom pieces in the $600 range, is said to be designing made-to-order dresses for lady-in-waiting Pippa and her younger cohorts, 7-year-old Lady Louise Windsor, 8-year-old Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, and 3-year-olds Grace van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes.

Macfarlane's collaboration for British department store John Lewis's girls department reveals a selection of full-skirted, puff-sleeved dresses in striking shades of silver and gold—including one sleeveless number called the Diana.

The royal wedding buzz appears to have crashed Macfarlane's Web site, though online listings say the London-based designer "creates exquisite dresses for flower girls and bridesmaids, as well as smart pageboy outfits, perfect for the prettiest and most glamorous of weddings."

"Most glamorous of weddings"? Rings a bell ...

Meanwhile, Kate and William have released their official royal wedding program portrait.
