Olivia Culpo Reveals the Wedding Tradition She and Christian McCaffrey Are Skipping
Olivia Culpo and Christian McCaffrey are getting ready to say “I do.” The couple got engaged after four years of dating on April 2, and the 31-year-old model is currently deep in wedding-planning mode. While participating in the first-ever Celsius Pickleball Classic on Aug. 25, Culpo revealed that there are “a lot of moving parts” at the moment but that “the hardest part” has been nailing down a location and the guest list.
“I’m excited to get that part over with. And then I think from there, it’s just more of the creative stuff, the moments we dream of when we’re really little kids,” Culpo tells POPSUGAR.
While Culpo and McCaffrey, 27, are still working on ironing out all the details, the “Culpo Sisters” star says she “100 percent” wants a Champagne tower. “That’s what I know I want, which is very old school and I think not necessarily traditional,” Culpo says excitedly. “I love Champagne, and that will have to happen at the wedding.”
However, one tradition Culpo and the San Francisco 49ers running back won’t be partaking in on their wedding day is the first look. Culpo explains, “I don’t want my fiancé to see me before the wedding, and I don’t want him to see the dress before the wedding. I want him to see me for the first time walking down the aisle.”
In an Amazon Live back in April, Culpo briefly talked about what kind of wedding dress she’d like to wear, saying, “I do have an idea in mind, but I have found that you never know until you try the actual dress on . . . I don’t know, I do have an idea. It’s a lot of pressure.” At the time, Culpo said she hadn’t selected a wedding designer yet, but she had been thinking about that a lot. “It’ll be exciting to see what it ends up being,” she added.
She also discussed possible wedding locations in her Amazon Live, noting that her parents want her and McCaffrey to get married in Newport, RI, but she wasn’t entirely sure about that. “I do like the idea of mountains, so we will see,” she said.
As for the actual wedding date, it seems like Culpo and McCaffrey are still working on that, too.
