Pippa Middleton's wedding is going down on May 20, and if you're wondering whether or not there's a theme, the answer is hell yes there is.

It appears as thought Pippa and James Matthews are big fans of Scotland, because their wedding is said to be themed "Scottish." And they're going all out. The Daily Mail reports that guests—all 300 of them—will be chowing down on haggis canapés and lamb from the Glen Affric region of Scotland, and will also be drinking local whiskey. A bagpiper will be in attendance, and rumor has it that James will be incorporating tartan somewhere on his wedding outfit (though verdict's still out on whether he'll show up in a kilt).


As for Pippa and her husband-to-be's ties to Scotland, Pippa went to school at the Edinburgh University, while James' family owns a casual castle not far from Loch Ness. James' father is actually the Laird of Glen Affric, a title which will be passed to James and make Pippa a Lady.

In other news, an "anonymous Russian donor" is said to be providing 17 pounds of beluga caviar, so #normal.
