Lauren Conrad and William Tell have finally tied the knot! After a beachy bachelorette in Cabo, a Pinterest-worthy bridal shower and countless blog posts on the subject of marriage, one thing’s for sure: Conrad’s wedding style — and her overall bridal vibe — is classic and laid-back.

For her wedding dress, Conrad isn’t one for lots of frills or embellishments. “I usually go for ‘less is more,'” Conrad said earlier this year. “But I gravitate toward larger skirts because there are so few occasions when you can wear one, so why not?” She also revealed that long isn’t her only desirable option: “I love tea-length wedding dresses.”
But while she’s admittedly elegant and understated, she’s not totally by the book. “I’m not the biggest stickler for tradition,” she wrote on her blog in August. In lieu of a traditional ceremony with a priest or rabbi, “William and I are opting to have a close friend marry us,” she said.
She also said that one rule she thinks is fine to break is having an uneven number of bridesmaids and groomsmen. “We have one more bridesmaid than groomsmen in our own wedding party, and I don’t see any issue with it,” she said. Speaking of her wedding party of nine
bridesmaids, she’s similarly chill about what they wear. “I don’t mind if there are a few girls in the same dress, or if people are all in different ones,” she told Martha Stewart Weddings this summer. “I don’t think it has to be too cohesive.” And yes, they’ll be clad in her new Paper Crown Bridesmaids line (see the photo below): “I sent them all the different shapes and let them pick from two colors,” she said.

For hair and makeup, “I’m letting the girls do whatever they want,” she says. “I think that weddings are about celebrating, and you want everyone to feel comfortable, so I think it’s about whatever is going to make them feel pretty.” None of her girls, however, will be decked out in “sausage curls,” a hairstyle Conrad was shocked that a women’s magazine said epitomized her look earlier this summer. Perhaps we should look out for a series of just-messy-enough updos instead?
