Olivia Wilde Dishes On Wedding Dress Details

In the PDA-packed months leading up to her wedding to Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde has been tight-lipped about what she’ll wear to walk down the aisle — until now.

The star spills in the August issue of InStyle that she’ll be in Monique Lhuillier, and her lucky bridesmaids will too.

Rather than “that tortured tradition of forcing them to wear a ridiculous dress they’ll never wear again,” she says, “they’ll have a real creation tailored for each of them. They can dye it black or purple and wear it forever.”

So that gives us one more clue: The bridesmaid dresses will be light-colored! It’s a sweet and girlie touch for former tough girl Wilde, who shares that her teenage style was inspired by ’70s male musicians — think lots of polyester. “Boys were my role models back then,” she tells the magazine.

Her style has come a long way since then: Wilde shares her can’t-live-without style finds (including an ALC dress “my boyfriend loves almost more than I do”) and, refreshingly, talks about how happy she is in this moment. We’ve got a feeling we’re going to see one beaming, beautiful bride very soon!

For lots more on Wilde’s style (including her evolving looks, best red carpet moments and prettiest hairdos), visit InStyle.com and pick up the new issue, on stands Friday.

Tell us: What do you think of Wilde’s wedding gown (and bridesmaid dress) plans?

Lol! “that tortured tradition of forcing them to wear a ridiculous dress they’ll never wear again…”

You’re doing the exact same thing sweetie. Don’t think you’re any different.i guess we don’t all have the resources to do custom dresses, but I’m sure they’ll look the same as everyone else’s.

I had my three bridesmaids wear beautiful green pant suits that were perfect for a wedding, but not so formal they couldn’t be worn again. They all commented later on that they wore them to business parties, Christmas parties and fancy dinners out. I was a little nervous at first having pants, but they were so pretty that I went for it.

I thought I read somewhat recently that she had just turned 29. The article makes it seem like she was alive in the late 70s, which doesn’t make sense since her birth would have happened in 1984. I suppose her teen years in the 90s could have been influenced by musicians from decades past…
