It’s surprisingly easy for any bride to emulate the star’s style.
“Look at ready-to-wear. Check out Marchesa, Oscar, or Carolina shows online,” Olivia said. “And even if your dream dress comes right off the rack, add your own touch. Play with color. It’s all about styling.”Olivia Palermo
Don’t skimp on the reception décor.
“I want them to have cool, styled details,” Olivia says. As for food? That’s no place to skimp on either. “The food has to be really, really good!”Olivia Palermo
Every bride should have a wedding mantra.
“My wedding mantra is beautiful flowers. All I care about are beautiful flowers,” Olivia says. “I love peonies and tulips in light pinks.”Olivia Palermo
The wedding shouldn’t be just about the bride.
Olivia reveals that her wedding planning is a collaboration between and her crazy-handsom fiancé Johannes Huebl. “At the end of the day, it’s about the two of us, and that’s the most important thing,” Olivia says. “People shouldn’t lose sight of that.”Olivia Palermo
