By now, you’ve had plenty of time to gawk at Lauren Conrad’s #1 STUNNA engagement ring. BUT WHAT ABOUT HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN? Come on, Lauren! Give us the deets! It’s just us, your old pals at MTV. We’ve been besties since, like, 2004! Remember? Spill it. Were there rose petals? Puppies? Ribbons and polka dots and tiny pastel macarons? Did you have a secret Pinterest board entitled “Engagement Ideas” for William Tell to refer to? I bet there were macarons.
The single-set, circle-cut ring is TOTALLY true to the former MTV star’s style—classic, simple, impossibly glam—and it will undoubtedly be the perfect accessory for any dress she chooses to walk down the aisle in (and also for just like, sitting on the couch and staring at in pajamas.) And since we HAVE known Conrad since 2004 (you’ve come a long way from flip-flops and tube-tops, lady), we obvi had to offer up some suggestions for dresses on the big day. You know, since we’re really busy and couldn’t be there in person to help out, even if she decided to ask us instead of say, IDK, her in-the-flesh family.
Our top picks for Lauren Conrad’s wedding dress.

Assuming she doesn’t design a dress herself (which, being a designer and all, is totally possible), we see LC going for something romantic, feminine and elegant. She’s sustained a pretty reliable style over the years, and (as recently evidenced by her latest collection for Paper Crown), the girl loves her some lace and a strapless sweetheart neckline.
Ethereal, Delicate Details
This trumpet-shaped ivory gown by Oscar de la Renta is just jaw-droppingly beautiful. Seriously, someone give me a hand with my mouth over here. The silk base is covered in a flower-embroidered organza overlay, and those dainty details and classic lines would look lovely on Lauren.
Classic, Cap-Sleeve Lace
LC looks great in lace, and the floral stitched pattern on this cap-sleeve Lela Rose gown is one of the more intricate designs we’ve seen. The delicate lace covering goes all the way down the bodice and curves around the back and the hips, adding a romantic touch to an otherwise simply-chic dress.
Flirty and Full-Skirted
“I usually go for ’less is more,'” Conrad told Martha Stewart Weddings, “but I gravitate toward larger skirts because there are so few occasions when you can wear one, so why not?” Monique Lhuillier made this strapless, full-skirted, playfully-ornate gown, with an asymmetrical draped floral overlay that’s not overdone or unnecessarily showy.
What kind of dress do you see Lauren choosing? Do you think Tell proposed with macarons?
