After changing her wedding location six times, Rachel Hunter is making plans for lucky number seven.
Her new wedding plan? “Northern California in mid-August,” says Hunter, 39, who got engaged to Los Angeles Kings hockey player Jarret Stole last August. She said yes immediately – but that was the only easy part.
“I am terrible” at wedding planning, Hunter admits. “I need to be given less time than a year to plan, because I change my mind so often. It was going to be in Mexico, but we decided otherwise. I’ve made seven changes to the location.
And choosing a dress is almost as tough. “I’m in the process of picking out a dress,” Hunter told PEOPLE Monday at the Wall Street Journal and Cinema Society dinner for Jessica Biel’s new film Easy Virtue, held at New York City’s Gramercy Park Hotel private Roof Club.
“The scariest thing is picking out the bridesmaid dresses,” said Hunter. “You pick your best friends to be bridesmaids, but it is kind of a torture what you do to them. Everyone loves the little black dress, but how do you incorporate a little black dress into a wedding? It’s going to be something very chic, I feel. I’m trying.”
After divorcing Rod Stewart in 2007, how did Hunter know that Stoll is a keeper? “He’s got a great sense of humor,” she says. “He’s a good person. And he gets on really well with my kids, and obviously we have to get on very well … good all around.”
