We chatted with bride-to-be/supermodel/actress Kate Upton recently, right before the (stunning) Atelier Pronovias 2018 bridal runway show in Barcelona. She and her fiancé, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, have a ways to go with wedding plans ("We're the worst!" she says), but she let us in on a few details.

 

On the Overall Vibe:

"We want a destination wedding, like we're taking our friends and families on a vacation and we're having a great time, and we just happen to get married."

 

On Wedding Planning:

"It's completely intimidating and overwhelming! I wish I were the type of girl who always thought about my wedding, because it would have been so much easier. I would have just been done."

On Traditions:

"Luckily, both of my older sisters are married, and I've seen them go through the wedding process. We have a family tradition—I guess it's a tradition now, since it happened twice—where everyone enters the reception dancing. Then you stop and have dinner, and then you back on the dance floor." 

 

On Dresses:

"I'm really excited to be here—it's my first bridal show. I kind of know the shapes that look best on my body, or make me feel best, because of my red-carpet experience. Usually it's something that accentuates my waist. There are so many fun details you can do with bridal that you can't do with other dresses, so I definitely want to take advantage of this moment." 

 

On Cocktails:

"My personal favorite is tequila, soda, a splash of orange juice, ad a splash of lime juice. It's my own version of a skinny margarita Justin enjoys them too, so I'm hoping to have lots of those that night! You should try it!"
