Supposedly, Richie, 29, and Madden, 31, are set to tie the knot tomorrow at Lionel Richie's Beverly Hills estate which, although it boasts 28 rooms, doesn't have plenty of space on the ground for many guests.
Word on the street is that the guest list has been kept to 75, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail. So while there reportedly will be seats for Ashlee Simpson and Christina Aguilera, there isn’t room for one Paris Hilton.
According to the paper, a “source” dished, “Nicole's wedding will be super small, and a lot of people who have played a role in her life like Paris have been cut from the guest list.”
According to Us Weekly, the bride will wear either Marchesa or vintage Chanel, but over at RadarOnline, it’ll be either Marchesa or Monique Lhuillier. If you’re taking your tips from E! Online, she’ll be wearing the Marchesa. Decisions! (If anyone’s got money riding on what designer she’ll wear, obviously you should go for the best odds out of three.)
But forget the designer for a minute. There are more important questions to consider, such as: Will Richie wear the traditional bridal color? Not if one of her reported former stylists were to have her way. "I would not put her in pure white,” this former stylist told Radar, and presumably not just because the ruse is up, seeing that Richie and Madden have two kids together.
“I would go more off-white or even a very pale pink, soft and elegant is what I envision. I would like to see her in a strapless gown or a one-shoulder,” the stylist explained. “She is so tiny, so the more skin, the better.”
But according to E!, the dress will not only be white but also custom-made, running Richie a cool $20,000.
And the groom? We’re not sure what he'll be wearing, since no one's started any reports about the groom's sartorial choices. We’re going to go ahead and guess he’ll be wearing some pants; a shirt, perhaps with a tie, is probable.
As for who will round out Richie's bridal party, E! suggests that DJ Sam Ronson may serve as one of the bridesmaids, with Richie's 2-year-old daughter Harlow playing the part of flower girl.
