Hell hath no fury like a woman planning a wedding!

After three years and two children, Nicole Richie is finally planning her wedding to love of her life Joel Madden and family friends say the 28-year-old socialite could not be more difficult. While Joel “would be happy if they just went to a justice of the peace,” tattles tell In Touch Weekly that Nicole has been obsessing over every detail of the upcoming nups — from what dress she’ll wear down to who will walk her down the aisle, her famous dad Lionel or her mom Brenda.

“Also, Nicole wants to wear couture, and that could cost $150,000 or more.”

David Tutera — host of WE TV’s My Fair Weddings with David Tutera — has some advice for Nicole’s loved ones: “Every bride has her moments of being overwhelmed. They should all try to find a middle ground and create a wedding that feels big and important, but also has an understated elegance to it.”
