Allure’s April 2014 Cover Girl Lauren Conrad Shares Wedding Planning Tips

She looks amazing in these photos. One of the few MTV girls who seems to have her head on straight and used her fame to create a career.

Lauren Conrad met her fiancĂ©, law student William Tell, on Valentine’s Day two years ago. (They were set up by a mutual friend.) “We’ve set a date, but we’re actually not telling anybody. We’ll send out the save-the-dates, but until then…” the 28-year-old says with the wisdom of someone who has been a paparazzi target for a decade. “It’ll be about 200 people, but I’m still figuring things out.” We asked her how she’s planning a wedding while her fiancĂ© studies.

Gauge his interest. “I ask him if he cares before I start asking questions. So I’ll say, ‘I’m looking at food or flowers or whatever,’ and before I even get into it, I say, ‘I want to know if you care about this.’ Sometimes he does, and sometimes he doesn’t.”

Be fine with his answer. “I’m glad [Tell] doesn’t care about the flowers. I wanted him to see sketches of the dress, but he said absolutely not. I’m wearing it for him! But if he doesn’t want to see it, I don’t want to make him. He loves music–that’s his life–so he picked the band.”

Time yourself. “I’ll ask him, ‘Is this a good time?’ I keep a list. So when it’s a good time, I’ll say, ‘OK, just real quick…’ And I keep it short. If you don’t do it in ten minutes, then you lose him.”

Don’t stress. “One of my girlfriends got married a couple years ago, and I talked to her the next day. She was like, ‘Yesterday I was a bride; today I’m just married.’ She was so bummed. Are you kidding me?! My friends who enjoyed their weddings the most were the easygoing girls. Things are going to go wrong; not everything is going to be perfect. But at the end of the day, we’re married and happy, and it’s great.”

“Take any trend you want and relax it. That’s how California does it,” Conrad says of her beach babe style. “If it’s silk button-up shirts that are in, you probably don’t button them all the way, and you cuff a sleeve, you know what I mean? It’s almost like how your outfit looks at the end of the day.”

“Your bed is for sleep and sex,” Conrad says her busy schedule and habit of working in bed. The author and designer also has a wedding to plan, as she and former Something Corporate guitarist William Tell became engaged in October 2013.

I like Lauren Conrad. Didn’t she end up with Brody Jenner at the end of The Hills?

I’m not sure if she’s cute and humble, or completely full of herself.

I think Lauren looks funny when she wears a lot of makeup.
