Stassi Schroeder’s plan to opt out of including bridesmaids in her upcoming wedding to Beau Clark has taken a major turn.
In a bridal column shared with Glamour magazine on January 29, Schroeder said that while she initially planned to get married with her friends as guests, not bridesmaids, they were “livid.”
“They were like, ‘Abso-f**king-lutely not. We love you, and this means more to us than it does to you. If you don’t do bridesmaids, we’re going to kill you,” Schroeder recalled.
“So I’m having bridesmaids,” she confirmed.
After deciding to implement bridesmaids into her wedding, Schroeder realized that narrowing the ladies in her life down was no easy feat. As she explained, she wants to include her sister, Clark’s sister, friends she grew up with, and the friends she has now in their ceremony. So, when all was said and done, she ended up with a whopping nine bridesmaids.
“Don’t judge me,” she advised.
Although Schroeder hasn’t yet confirmed her exact wedding date with her fans and followers, she did reveal months ago that she and Clark will be tying the knot at some point this year, and that they had chosen Rome, Italy as their wedding destination.
As some Vanderpump Rules fans may know, Clark has dual citizenship in Italy and his sister has been helping him and Schroeder plan the overseas affair.
Schroeder and Clark have also noted that they will be allowing Bravo to follow them to Italy as they prepare to say, “I do.”
While Schroeder and Clark certainly have a lot on their plate as they put the finishing touches on their Italian wedding, that didn’t stop them from moving out of their apartments and into a new home in Los Angeles.
According to a report shared by Bravo’s Home & Design last week, Schroeder dropped $1.7 million on a Mediterranean-style home in the Hollywood Hills that boasts stunning canyon views after a number of her co-stars moved to homes near one another in The Valley.
Because Schroeder and Clark are planning to feature their wedding on the upcoming ninth season of Vanderpump Rules, they’ve faced more than their fair share of challenges as they attempt to get filming permits in place for all of the venues they will be spending time in throughout their trip.
Luckily, throughout the challenges of setting up the filming event, Schroeder has had the support of her many bridesmaids.
“[They] have already made the wedding planning experience so much better for me,” she admitted.
In addition to the upcoming wedding of Schroeder and Clark, Vanderpump Rules fans also have the wedding of the newly sober Lala Kent and her fiancé, Randall Emmett, to look forward to. However, while Schroeder and Clark are planning to feature their ceremony and reception on the series’ upcoming ninth season, Kent and Emmett will not be having their nuptials filmed. Instead, they’ll be sharing their special day with fans in the form of photos shared on social media as they keep the sacred moment away from the Bravo cameras.
