If money were no object, I'd hold my wedding at The Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. My bridesmaids and the wedding party would gather in the Tea Room for refreshments and prep before the ceremony and take pictures amongst the Rose Garden. I'd then have the ceremony take place in the Japanese Garden. As for the reception, I'd create a vintage inspired tent with chandeliers on the main lawn. I'd hire Tyler Florence as the chef for the hors d'oeuvres and dinner. A separate dance floor would be next to the tent and there would be both a live band and DJ. I'd have the galleries open for viewing so the guests could look at artwork. I'd include a cigar and scotch bar for guests. There would also be a dessert and coffee bar, set in a lounge area. The next morning, my closest family and friends would then fly to Paris to continue the celebration. The favors for my wedding would be a year membership to The Huntington Library.

I would fly everyone into New York and have my wedding at Oheka Castle. I would also serve for dinner a juicy filet mignon with garlic roasted potatoes!

My dream is to have an intimate but luxurious wedding in Malibu. I'd love to rent an estate on a cliff that overlooks the water and transform the backyard into a bohemian garden right as the sun sets. I would want my favorite LA mixologist from the Library Bar to prepare signature cocktails for a pre-wedding cocktail hour for my guests. After the ceremony the entire party would move inside for dinner and dancing and of course an outfit change from my gown into a white Herve Leger dress. I want a small wedding so I am able to spend time with all of my guests and get out on the dance floor with them and then party the night away until we have a fireworks display at the end of the evening.

If money was not an issue... I would hire a top-notch wedding planner like David Tutera because working full-time and planning this life event, especially on a budget in L.A. is more stressful than anticipated. Secondly, an open bar with top-shelf spirits for guests is vital. I know that weddings are always much more fun when there's free booze! Thirdly, I would rent one of those light-up dance floors. Cheesy? Maybe. But with a few drinks and awesome 80s music, it would be so much fun! Got this idea from David Tutera's show and when I looked up the cost I realized it would be $8,000 just to rent the floor. So crazy! Last, but not least, I'd buy myself some insane couture wedding dress. The more drama, the better. I'm picturing something by Oscar de la Renta or Alexander McQueen (channeling Princess Kate!). The wedding party, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen would be outfitted just as chic. This would include hair, make-up, accessories... fascinators for the girls! Ah, so fun! As for a dream venue? Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown L.A. It represents my guy, who is an artist, and me, the big hall inside is glam, modern and warm, so perfectly!

I would still have a simple wedding with a small ceremony and then spend the money enjoying my honeymoon as newlyweds.

If money was no object my dream wedding would be in Italy in a castle over looking the Mediterranean sea. I would have my closest family and friends present we would say our vows in a beautiful church filled with candles and flowers as the sun went down.

If money were no object, I would fly everyone on the guest list somewhere fabulous like the Maldives, Bali, or Tahiti. It would be something that people would remember for the rest of their lives!

My dream wedding would be in Paris because it is the most romantic city in the world! The venue will be at the world famous Pantheon with the view of the Eiffel Tower in the background. There will be pink peonies covering the entire site. The wedding theme will be "Romance in Paris." I would be dressed in a Vera Wang gown to represent a classic, modern and elegant bride. My shoes would be Christian Louboutin, of course! Joel Robuchon will cater the finest French meal ever, ranging from croque madames to foie gras and steak. There will be something for everyone, vegans & vegeterians included! The meal will be paired with classic French wine. Music in the background will be played on a classic vinyl record displaying instrumental French music. Everyone will receive a vintage camera as a party favor, which they can use to capture shots and moments throughout the night. My guests will be showered with unlimited Laduree Macarons, afternoon tea, and a million dollar view. C'est la vie!
