Socialite and former The City star Olivia Palermo is getting ready for her wedding to fiance Johannes Huebl, and part of the process? Posing for Brides magazine’s May 2014 cover in a fabulous strapless wedding dress.

According to E! News, who got a sneak peek of the issue, Olivia also opened up about how brides can get her style for their big day in her cover interview.

“Check out the Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, or Carolina Herrera shows online. And even if your dream dress comes right off the rack, add your own touch,” Olivia advises in the mag. “Play with color. It’s all about the styling! I always like to incorporate pops of color.”

The 27-year-old Olivia announced her engagement to Johannes, a German model and photographer, in early January during a vacation to St. Barts. The couple’s been together since 2008, so it’s about time they tied the knot!

“Friends set us up, and it just fell right into place,” Olivia tells Brides of her romance. “We’re a great team. We understand and respect each other, and we make each other better people.”

“It also helps that we both work in fashion and can travel the world together,” Olivia adds. “We get to see the world through each other’s eyes.”

Congratulations, Olivia!
