Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Gave Paris Hilton Suggestions About Her Wedding Dress
During the interview, Hilton, who is engaged to Carter Reum, described her wedding planning experience as “so stressful” and asked Polizzi for “any advice.” The mother-of-three noted she “went all out” for her glamorous ceremony, inspired by the novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. She also shared that she wore two wedding dresses for the occasion and encouraged Hilton to do the same.
“Make sure you have two dresses. I feel like you are going to do more,” said Polizzi. “But I just feel like walking down the aisle, like the gorgeous like timeless dress and then once you go to your reception and the party time, that’s when you change. And I changed into a different ball gown but then my skirt could come off, so then I took the skirt off like when it started to get fun and dance-y. And it was just a really, really cute rhinestone dress, it was so pretty.”
The 33-year-old also instructed Hilton to “go all out because it’s your wedding and it’s literally your day.” Hilton then revealed that she has purchased “three dresses for that night so far.” She also noted that the event “is not going to be as big as it would have been” due to COVID restrictions. However, the ceremony will take place over the span of three days.

The MTV star also shared that she decided to have an extravagant reception at The Venetian, located in Garfield, New Jersey, as she does not plan on marrying again.
“It was a palace and I wanted to do it big because one and done. We are not getting divorced. If stuff hits the fan, he’s got to deal with it,” said Polizzi.
She then revealed that the “afterparty” was her favorite aspect of the celebration.
“The whole day you have jitters and then the reception you have to say ‘hi’ to everybody so, you know, that takes forever, and I couldn’t even eat because I was trying to say ‘hi’ to everybody so the reception I got into my tracksuit. I took my dress off. The heels off. I put Uggs on and I just danced and got drunk. I had a good time,” explained Polizzi.
