Nicole Richie is Settling Down For Real

Nicole Richie, seen here successfully hiding her mug, has officially started making plans to wed longtime boyfriend Joel Madden. The two have a new daughter, Harlow, and together decided that they would get married after, not before her birth.

OK! Magazine reports that the two plan to tie the knot very soon, after a friend of the couple said the two will say their vows this coming summer.

Invitations are reportedly going out this week. Everything is planned except for what the wedding party will wear to the long-awaited ceremony, thanks to a celeb party planner.

Nicole will have 8 bridesmaids. It is not confirmed if on-and-off-again BFF Paris Hilton will be one, but I can already picture her as the maid of honor and her boyfriend Benji the man of honor since he is Joel’s twin. So cute I could barf.

Start preparing yourself now for photos from the inevitable crazy bachelorette party.
