Luann de Lesseps, Real Housewives of New York City


Luann de Lesseps is planning one heck of a wedding!

The Real Housewives of New York star is engaged to Thomas D'Agostino Jr., and the two have announced they will tie the knot on New Year's Eve, which also happens to mark the businessman's 50th birthday.

Of course, such a big evening calls for the perfect ensemble, and de Lesseps is not about to look anything but flawless. In fact, the reality star joined Sirius XM's Taylor Strecker on Wake Up with Taylor and revealed that she plans to wear three dresses (yes, three!).

"I'm actually doing a couple of wedding dresses because it's a big occasion," she told the Strecker. "I'm doing a traditional [dress] to walk down the aisle—lace not puffy. I've never been a puffy girl, type of person. Fitted and lacy and at the same time a little sexy, and I'm going to wear a veil."

She explained how this will be D'Agostino's first wedding, and thus she wants the ceremony to be traditional.

"Tom has never been married so I want him to have a real bride," she said. "I want him to see a bride down the aisle. [so] my thoughts are why not wear white? I'm doing a little white cream, a little blush."

However, she also wants to be able to cater to the many themes of the night, which is why she is planning to switch up her ensemble.

"It's Tom's 50th birthday, and it's also New Year's Eve," she explained. "So I'm wearing three dresses...the traditional one, the one I might sing a song for him in—I'm going to sing in a short dress—and the end of the night dress. It's a bit revealing with some bling, but elegant at the same time, of course."

As for who made the cut on her wedding guest list, de Lesseps wants to clarify that she's only sent out Save the Dates so far.

"I haven't sent invites what it means is that I have sent out Save the Dates," she explained, referencing reports that certain housewives weren't invited. "I wouldn't say axed [anyone]. It's not a nice word. I would say they are not invited for the moment."

On Monday, E! News confirmed that Dorinda Medley was the only current co-star to receive a Save the Date. Former Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin and Real Housewives of Miami alumna Marysol Patton have also scored one.

In other words, a majority of Luann's co-stars including Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel were one of the people who are currently not invited.

Meanwhile, de Lesseps and D'Agostino got engaged in February in New York City, and they plan to tie the knot on New Year's Eve in Palm Beach, Fla. Previously, LuAnn was married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps for 16 years before getting divorced in 2009.
