Ashley Olsen secretly planning $1 million wedding

Ashley Olsen is secretly planning her wedding to her boyfriend of seven months, actor Justin Bartha. Though it’s not clear if Bartha’s actually proposed to the pint-sized mogul, it appears that Ashley is moving forward with plans for quite the lavish, elegant, and surprisingly taco-centric wedding.

“Ashley has dreamed of having her wedding on the French Riviera, and she’s going to ask her favorite designer and friend, fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, to create a custom-designed gown to the tune of a quarter million dollars!” a pal told THE ENQUIRER.

“She wants to take her vows under a canopy of exotic white flowers as the sun sets behind her at the super-exclusive Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. The place is for the fabulously wealthy and accepts only cash – no credit cards.” The former “Full House” star will shell out $150,000 to charter a private jet to fly in family members and friends, and pay another $400,000 for three nights of deluxe accommodations for them, said the source.

Centerpieces from Moe’s Flowers in West Hollywood will be flown in to the tune of $100,000, and Ashley will fork over another $100,000 for a dinner of tacos, enchiladas and guacamole to be catered by the Mexican restaurant Dos Caminos of New York City, said the source.

“Ashley even wants some of her favorite candy, including Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls, Sour Patch Kids and Sour Worms to be scattered around the reception for guests to nibble on,” said the pal. “She also wants photographer Anne Leibovitz, who Mary-Kate has worked with, to capture the entire extravaganza on film.”

It all sounds elegant, but I found the Mexican food a little surprising. My first thought was maybe they’re golden tacos or something. The color could work. They just don’t seem to fit with the rest of the theme. The candy is cute and I’ve heard of other couples doing that as a fun way to add some sweets into the reception. But tacos at a wedding … that might be a first. It’s definitely more memorable than the traditional chicken or fish. If nothing else it strikes me as potentially messy. I have never seen anyone eat a taco with grace. Though I’d guess if anyone could do it in an understated fashion, I’d say Ashley Olsen is up to the task.

The Enquirer notes that Ashley’s friend says that even though they haven’t dated that long, “‘Ashley thinks she’s found love.’” I’d say it’s still a little early. Clearly she’s serious about the relationship and it’s nice that she’s so happy, but I wouldn’t be putting down a deposit on that taco cart quite yet.

    I love the Olsens (I love just about anyone who shares the same birthday as I do, especially if it’s the same year)and I also love weddings. For my wedding we are doing a whole candy bar where you guests fill little monogrammed bags to take with them. I hope that it’s true that they are getting married and that the relationship will last.

    PRE NUP girl!!!
    she sounds very immature with the candy
    Isn’t she not even 20 yet?

  5. Blue says:

    Well, she seems to have her life a lot more stable than her sister, so more power to her. As for tacos and candy at her wedding, it is their day, they can celebrate however they choose.

    I don’t think I believe it. It sounds more like something where you’re sitting around with your girlfriends talking about what your “dream wedding” would be, in a completely hypothetical way.

    Side note: My friend had a sundae bar at her reception. It totally rocked.

    I saw her on David Letterman. She looked healthy but her skirt was WAY too short and looked like she was wearing nothing at all when she sat down. He sort of made fun of her, which was cute.

  8. paris herpes says:

    Aren’t the twins 21 already?

  9. cc says:

    Mmmmm…tacos. I think it is time for lunch!


  10. Erin says:

    They’re older than me, so they must be at least 22. And tacos at a wedding sounds delish. I would seriously consider a custom burrito bar.

  11. Tina says:

    Weren’t one of the twins talking about how she didn’t want kids or marriage? I get the two of them confused…

  12. Chamalla says:

    I would think $100k would buy a lot of tacos.

  13. mojoman says:

    Hey, whatever rock your boat. I had a Middle Eastern- themed reception complete with some belly dancers and get this, a 2 tiered BAKLAVA wedding cake..people went nuts 🙂

  14. lulu says:

    I like the olsen girl they’re good girls not like those sl**s in hollywood we see they are quite with no headlines around them, menwise, good for her i’m happy for her i hope mary kay finds someone too.

  15. Yeah right says:

    This is such a lie-the details are so silly and wrong. The Hotel does accept credit cards, if that simple detail is wrong then the rest must be wrong too. Apparently the National Enquirer can’t even look on the hotel website to confirm…

  16. vdantev says:

    Not much of a secret if the mouth-breathers at the tabs found out. 🙄

  17. Weeble says:

    This sounds like BS to me. I had to LOL about the candies for guests to “nibble” on. Should have save this one for April Fools Day.

  18. Maria says:

    I had a candy table at my wedding. It had all kinds of candies and “goldfish” crackers – that sort of things. I had several kids there, and I didn’t figure they would eat the more chichi finger foods that were being passed around. I think that it’s a fun idea.
