Bachelorette Ali Reveals Designer She'll Likely Wear at Wedding
Here comes the bride, all dressed in....?
Planning has barely begun for Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky's wedding to Roberto Martinez -- but she already has a dress designer in mind.
"I'm leaning towards Monique Lhuillier," Fedotowsky told UsMagazine.com at Tuesday's "Endless Summer" Primetime Emmy Suite event at Gonpachi restaurant in Beverly Hills. "I like her. I like the flowiness of her dresses," the reality star, 25, said of Lhuillier, whose wedding gowns have been worn by the likes of Carrie Underwood, Bachelor star Molly Malaney (who wed Jason Mesnick) and others.
In a recent Us Weekly cover story, stylist Annie Ladino (who has worked with Julia Roberts and Becki Newton), suggested two Lhuillier gowns for the bride-to-be: one $6,160 lace number featured "a corset bodice to show off Ali's slim shape"; another $4,400 gown had an exaggerated trumpet skirt for a more "classic" option. One other designer Fedotowsky should consider? Vera Wang, whose bridal designs are "perfect for a down-to-earth California girl" with "feminine" touches, Ladino told Us.
Otherwise, preliminary brainstorming for the affair -- no date has been set -- is "almost overwhelming," she admitted to Us. "We've had so many people being like 'oh, we'll do a new song for you!' and 'we'll give you this, we'll give you that', and we're so appreciative," Fedotowsky said. "We have to sit back and go through everything and figure it out. It's going to happen!"
One thing not in doubt for the couple, who just moved into a San Diego, Calif. apartment together: their devotion to each other. "We don't even think of it like 'are we going to make it a month? Are we going to make it six months?'" she said. "When we're talking about doing things, we're like 'babe, we have the rest of our lives, that can wait, we can do that later, we have out whole lives.' We're going to make it!"
