Ryan Seacrest Dishes About Planning His Sister's Bachelorette Party: 'I Had to Take 17 Women to Napa'

Updated

And the award for Man of Honor goes to Ryan Seacrest!

The TV host, 41, celebrated his only sister’s Nov. 5 nuptials with a bang … all of which he planned.

“I was the lead bridesmaid,” Seacrest told Harry Connick Jr. during an appearance on the daytime program Harry, airing on Friday. “I called my sister and said, ‘What does it mean Man of Honor?’ and she said, ‘Well you’ve got to do everything a Maid of Honor would do.’ I said, ‘A bachelorette party?’ She said, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Okay.’ ”

Seacrest, who celebrated his sister, Meredith’s, marriage to Jimmy Leach, a senior executive at TOMS, last month, admitted that although the planning wasn’t all that difficult, there was one challenge.

Oh yeah, I had to take 17 women to Napa,” he said. “The challenge — you’ll appreciate this because you have only girls in your house — the challenge was keeping them on schedule because there were limited bathrooms for 17 women. They did a pretty good job but that was the biggest hurdle was telling them what time they had to be ready and what time reality was,” said Seacrest, who added, “It was really really cool, so emotional but so proud of my little sister.”

Last October, the executive producer revealed that his sister asked him to accept the honorary role at her wedding. “You’ve been by my side all of my life, and I wouldn’t want you anywhere else, when I become a wife,” Meredith’s poem to Ryan read. “I’m so lucky to have you as my brother, and couldn’t imagine celebrating with any other. So basically what I’m trying to say… Will you be my Man of Honor on my special day?!”
