We pegged Olivia Palermo as the type of bride to know exactly what kind of dress she wants. And as it turns out, we were right. The fashion-forward star models eight different bridal styles in the June/July issue of Brides magazine, and opens up about her wedding day vision.

“First, I’ll consider what the venue is and what the feel is,” she shares. “But no matter where I marry, you’re not going to see me in a huge cupcake dress. As beautiful as they are, they’re just not me.”

When it comes to accessories, she plans to keep things fun in the footwear department. “A great pair of shoes, always — Aquazzura is a favorite. I love a white stiletto, and it’s very on trend right now, but that may be where I do color.”

The star also opened up about the romantic engagement video her fiancé, model Johannes Huebl, shared on Instagram. “I’m a visual person, so a video was our special touch. And we both love music, so it had to have a cool song.”

Palermo, who usually keeps mum on her personal life, said the key to their successful relationship is mutual respect.

“We understand and respect each other, and we make each other better people,” she explained. “It also helps that we both work in fashion and can travel together. We get to see the world through each other’s eyes.”

And wedding planning has only made their bond stronger. “At the end of the day, it’s about the two of us, and that’s the most important thing. People shouldn’t lose sight of that.”

Sorry if I’m out-of-the-loop, but what is a cupcake dress? I’m only familiar with wedding dress shapes like trumpet, fit-and-flare, sheath, etc.

Sarah it would be the ballgown style. I hear it at work all the time. I thought the same thing when I first heard it.

I thought it was called a meringue dress – like the dessert.

I know this chick was some snobby coworker on one of the mtv shows, but what else does she do? Why is she being called a star?

Lauren on
