She has her own show on E!, a strapping hubby-to-be and a gorgeous wedding planned at the Playboy Mansion later this month, so what doesn't former Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson have? A top wedding dress designer—and that's exactly how she likes it!

"I could easily get a top designer, like Monique whatever-her-name-is or Vera Wang, but I was just walking down the street one day and I ended up going into a regular bridal shop and the lady there just was really nice so I decided to work with her to have her make my dress. I have faith in her that she can make me my dream wedding dress," says Kendra. "There is a certain style of what I want and she is busting her ass to make me my perfect wedding dress."

This Sunday Kendra will premiere on E! The show will document Wilkinson's post-Playboy life in the real world while planning her dream wedding to Philadelphia Eagles player Hank Baskett. Here, she dishes on her wedding advice for choosing bridesmaids and sticking to your guns while planning your dream day. —Cari Wolfert
