Prenuptial rumor roundup: Nicole Richie to wed?

If the rumors are to be believed, Nicole Richie is somewhere prepping to wed rocker Joel Madden, whom she’s been with since 2006 and was confirmed to be engaged to earlier this year.

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.

    Hi Emily, your comment is the first "real" posting I have read on the net. You seem very pleasant. Thank you for wishing peace to everyone. From what I have seen and read here tonight, we need it. Life is short and one day all of us will face that moment alone. I hope life is well for you, that you have no worries and peace in your heart. Good night my dear.

      Why? Part of growing up is learning who your friends are and moreso who they aren't. Regardless of what they may have at one time "had," good on her for being able to identify toxic relationships and cut them out of her life. No reason to live life based on pretenses.

    Isn't this the same Nicole Richie who, immediately after learning of her pregnancy with Harlow, completely did a 180 and started changing her lifestyle immediately and who appears to be an amazing mother??? Why can't you (nobodies) let dead dogs lie??? I thought the "Simple Life" was entertaining (but I also have a sense of humor). ;-}~

    Why do we care about a no-talent ho like this?

    What possible entertainment use could she have?
    There is no beauty; no athleticism no intellectual ffount. She does not sing or act or dance or develop vaccines or help people in any discernible way.

    Hollywood would do well to forget about this has-been and others like her and focus on talented people. Seriously.

    OK they have 2 children first, although I'm not a fan of either one, they plan to get married. I agree marriage should come first, then the kids. But in their defense, she BY FAR is not the only person to have children before marriage. ALOT of celebrities do it. Teenagers do it too what's the difference? In my opinion way too many people have babies and don't even consider getting married. At least they are willing to make it official.

    I really dont care if they get married as much as i am sure they dont care if i get married. Aint nothing new or outrageous about gettin married– seems kinda old fashion to me. I also could care less what color the dress is. Tho i dont get y people get hung up on a girl wearin white like we all need to wait 4 marriage to have some fun? What n then realize u have no chemistry n head 4 divorce court? I can bet u her boy aint no saint. I hope the dress is amazing 4 that price n she donates it after. Most celebs spend all this $ on clothes n most of the clothes r blah or too overdone or just unnecessary. I aint impressed. Good luck tho. Glad she cut 'p.h. Imbalance' off cuz she lost. Can we talk about something worthwhile for once???????

    She's turned into a wonderful responsable woman, mother, and partner. Joel seems very stable and they love each other. No bad press, they're off drugs(What little there was anyway) and to just prove how much she's matured she's dropped Hilton frm her life. And considering in that bussiness no one last's no more than two years, they're doing great and I believe and hope they continue too. I really don't care about celebs much, but she's always facinated me. I wish them luck.
