The Bride Is Wearing Monique Lhuillier

This past July, Days of Our Lives actress Stause revealed her dress will come from the celeb-beloved designer. The bride posted a photo of a handwritten card from Lhuillier, which read: “Please find enclosed a swatch of your gorgeous gown to help you coordinate accessories. Fittings will be just around the corner!”

So exciting! 👰🏻👰🏻👰🏻 @moniquelhuillier #moniquelhuillier

Stause also teased on Instagram that she liked a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos to go with the Monique gown.

The Groom’s Teenage Daughter Will Have a Significant Role in the Ceremony

Hartley, who shares 13-year-old daughter Isabella Justice with his ex-wife, says his little one will have a role in the ceremony. “I think I’m going to have her do maybe the ring bearer and the flower girl, and maybe if she wants to she can sing,” he previously joked to People. “She sings, as well. She can do whatever she wants.”

Hangin’ at the park with the little one.

The Guest List Is Cozy

“I think we’re going to do an intimate wedding,” Hartley told People last fall. “We’re just starting now, and we’re realizing that even when you just start and you give yourselves tons of time to do it, you’re still behind. You’re always behind. You feel like you are. I might just hand it off to someone.”

This weekend, the actor told Us Weekly, “I’m actually really looking forward to the wedding day. I’m going to have friends coming in from out of town that I haven’t seen in a few years. It’s going to be great.”

The Wedding Planner Has It Under Control

“We’re doing it in the right way,” the actor told Us Weekly in July. “We hired a very competent wedding planner. She’s doing all the hard stuff, so basically we just field phone calls, and go taste cake and food. We’re having a blast doing it.”

The This Is Us Cast Will Likely Be There

Hartley teased that his close-knit online family will be there to witness the nuptials. “I hope so, yeah,” he said to Us of inviting his co-stars. (They include Milo Ventimiglia, recently-engaged Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown and Chrissy Metz.) “I hope so, God willing, yeah.”

“It’s like, I want to call her my wife,” he said to Us. “That will be amazing.”

In a previous interview, Hartley expressed: “It’s a special thing, isn’t it, that when you find that one person — and it sounds so cheesy. Some people are like, ‘Oh, there’s one person for everyone.’ But when you meet that one person, you realize like What the hell have I been doing my whole life? This is the person.”
