First Christmas as husband and wife! With the holidays right around the corner, The Knot recently caught up with newlywed Whitney Port at the James Allen Diamond Day event on her life post-wedding. The City alum married her longtime boyfriend, Tim Rosenman, in high style on November 7 in Palm Springs, California.

With wedding planning behind her, the fashion designer can now focus on celebrating the holiday season with her husband. When asked about creating Christmas traditions as newlyweds, Port told The Knot, “We haven’t started anything new yet. But I’m sure as time goes on and our families grow we’ll have new traditions.” Until then, the newlyweds will “spend Christmas with his family and have New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles with [their] friends.”

Port has a lot of reasons to celebrate this holiday season and ring in the New Year. “I have two sisters getting married next year,” she shared. Port’s older sister, Ashley, a professional wedding planner, coordinated the details of the her wedding day and will do the same for her younger sisters. “My younger sister is getting married in February and then my older sister is actually getting married in November—and she has her hands full because she’s planning those weddings as well. It’s exciting!”

When asked if she’s considered writing a wedding planning book of her own, Port said, “I’ve never really thought about it, but I think it could be really fun!” But the designer might consider working as a team with her sister.  “I think it would be fun to do something with her because I’m not an expert at it by any means. I was more like a creative director and she just executed everything. So it could be fun, eventually, one day.”

When it comes to buying engagement rings, however, Port does have some expert advice for shoppers. “I think the biggest thing in terms of shopping for your partner is that you want to get a second opinion, whether it’s a friend or a sister or someone involved, because most likely she has told them what she wants,” Port explained. “Also, in terms of the stone, I think it’s more important to have the clarity than to have have the size (since a bigger stone’s imperfections may be more noticeable).”
