Lea Michele on wedding planning: ‘I’m a very decisive person’


A post shared by Lea Michele (@leamichele) on

Just last weekend, Glee alum Lea Michele celebrated her engagement to clothing company president Mandy Reich with a lovely party with friends and family. During the festivities, Lea shared that she had already selected her gown for the big day.

In a social media post from the party in which she paid tribute to her parents, wishing them a happy 38th wedding anniversary, she announced, “I picked out my wedding dress that today and today is our engagement party. And I look up to you both so much and we love you both more than you know.”

While promoting her new partnership with Olly vitamins, Lea told PeopleStyle that, “I saw a photo, it was the first one I tried on and it was the one that I picked.” She added that, “I’m a very decisive person so they said I was one of the easiest brides that they have ever dealt with.”

I’m honestly a little surprised. With Lea being somewhat fond of being extra, I was expecting photos of wedding dress tests flooding her Instagram feed. But, speaking from experience, when you know, you know. The dress I bought for my second wedding was the first one I tried on in a North Carolina mall while killing time before a flight home after a friend’s wedding. It happens.

The 31-year-old actress also dished on her engagement ring, a 4-carat bauble designed by Zandy, with the help of Leor Yerushalmi and The Jewelers of Las Vegas. She revealed that “He really took care of everything himself. I think he knows me well enough but I give him all of the credit, and obviously the designer, but he really surprised me and did an amazing job.”

Again, my ex designed my engagement ring without any input at all from me (well,I did request white gold because yellow gold tends to turn my skin black). He did great, and I still wear the ring once in a while, because it is gorgeous. I feel a kinship with Lea regarding her upcoming nuptials, I just hope her marriage doesn’t end up like mine did.

Best night ever✨💍 @jogarciaswisher @thehappyplacepresents

    *divisive person

    There, I fixed it.

    I’m so indecisive that I’m generally jealous of women who know what they want and go for it, especially in the Viper Pit that is Hollywood. Good on her for knowing what she wants. She’s ambitious and seems to have the cahoons to go after things, good for her.

    Whenever I need a good cathartic cry, I watch or listen to the songs from the Glee episode remembering Corey (don’t know why…I didn’t even like that show that much but that episode gutted me).

    I will always just hope for happiness for Lea, even if she is annoying and extra.

      I wonder if “annoying and extra” are her “public” presentations, and if she’s not so annoying and exta in her personal life? I’m with Anony83 about that episode though. I loved the first season of glee when I finally saw it; I own the show on DVD and still occasionally will pick through it for the songs I love. Also, it did introduce me to a number of different artists I’d never heard. Old fogey here…I tend to listen to talk radio, not secular music so much any more, so appreciate being cracked open a bit through the show to some good tunes

    I like Lea and wish her happiness. She is assertive, direct, and talented. Those are not bad traits for a woman.

    She is a horrible person, IMO. Lainey’s blind item about her years ago about her obnoxious behavior in front of a Make-A-Wish patient and family is true. I know someone who witnessed the interaction. I can never think anything about her other than self-serving jerk (which may not distinguish her in Hollywood, IDK).
