“Nicole is going for a vintage and romantic vibe,” a source close to the couple said. “The wedding will be true to Nicole’s style. She cut down the guest list because she didn’t want a huge wedding.”
“She didn’t invite a bunch of her celeb friends. This has apparently upset a bunch of people,” the insider claimed.
The U.K’s Daily Express claims Samantha Ronson is expected to be one of the bridesmaids; meanwhile, Christina Aguilera may have to miss the party due to her promotional tour for Burlesque. Nicole’s 2-year-old daughter Harlow will be the flower girl, and Lionel will escort Nicole down the aisle. Nicole’s BFF Masha Gordon will be maid of honor. The best man? Benji Madden, of course!
Although neither Richie, 29, nor Madden, 31, have publicly confirmed this weekend’s supposed wedding, eye-witness accounts seem to confirm that something is going on this weekend. Staff at Lionel Richie’s estate were spotted unloading several moving trucks outside the mansion, and security has apparently been beefed up, with three bodyguards monitoring the property.
Nicole made a trip to NYC to be fitted for her Marchesa wedding gown. “Nicole brought her stylist Simone Harouche with her,” an insider says of her gown. “A lot of thought went into her dress – it was a huge priority for her.”
