Given that it’s the second wedding for both LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian (LeAnn’s divorce from Dean Sheremet was finalized in June, and Eddie, 37, officially divorced Brandi Glanville in September) and the salacious circumstances surrounding their courtship — the pair were still married when they had an affair while filming Northern Lights in 2008 — you’d think the couple would opt for a low-key ceremony. But instead, the bride is going all out.
“LeAnn selected three different gowns: one to walk down the aisle, one for the dinner and another to dance in,” a friend of the couple’s tells In Touch.
LeAnn has admitted, “I’ve found a designer.” And she’s insisting on a huge wedding party, which will include Eddie’s two sons with Brandi — Mason, 7, and Jake, 3 — and his best friend’s wife.
“LeAnn has gotten close with Eddie’s old friends from when he and Brandi were married,” explains the insider.
To mark the event, LeAnn, 28, who spent “over a month” perfecting her vows, “is planning to serenade Eddie with a medley of songs,” adds a pal. And she’s pulling out all the stops to make sure she looks her absolute best on the day.
“She has been working out nonstop,” says the source, adding, “The way she talks about the wedding, it’s like she thinks she’s Kate Middleton and Eddie is Prince William!"
