In 2015, Paris Hilton served as the maid of honor in her sister Nicky Hilton’s nuptials to James Rothschild, so it was only natural for that same gesture to be reciprocated three years later. The hotel heiress, who’s currently planning with fiancé Chris Zylka, confirmed on Wednesday, June 20, that Nicky will be her maid of honor in her upcoming wedding.
“It’s just obvious,” the bride-to-be told Entertainment Tonight. “She’s my best friend and she’s, like, my other half. I love her so much. So, of course, she’s going to be my maid of honor.”
There will be other family members in her wedding, but her beloved dog will not have a role in the ceremony itself. “I’m going to have my niece in the wedding,” she told ET. “But the dogs will not be at the wedding, but they’ll be in the dressing room with me getting ready.”
She also addressed the possibility of the late Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, joining her wedding party. “We’ll see! You’ll see some surprises!” Hilton replied of Jackson, who attended an event in support of the DJ on Wednesday.
The Hilton family recently celebrated the nuptials of Barron Hilton down in St. Bart’s. For the occasion, the bride Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff wore a custom dress by Watters which featured an elaborate train and dainty sleeves. “They wanted the beading to resemble pixie dust sprinkled along the cuff,” Vatana Watters previously told The Knot. “And the end result truly was magical.”
Up next is Paris, though the designer remains unknown. “I have picked [a wedding dress], and my sister told me it’s important for it to be a surprise,” she added to ET. “She’s like, ‘Don’t show anyone’—but her, of course.”
The couple will reportedly wed in November in the very same church where her parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, exchanged vows close to four decades ago. “I’m very busy,” Paris concluded. “So my life is a workout.”
Zylka proposed in January with a 20-carat, pear-shape diamond designed by jeweler Michael Greene of Greene & Co. “He’s seen Paris admiring her mother’s ring and trying it on at different times during dinner,” Greene previously told The Knot. “And he just really watched the way she just loved that ring. That’s why we came up with the shape.”
