Most pregnant celebrity brides (Jessica Simpson, Kristin Cavallari, and Snooki to name the latest) wait until after they're new moms to walk down the aisle—but not Drew Barrymore. The actress set a June date for her wedding, because she "doesn't want to be huge," a source told Us Weekly. And unlike the rest of Hollywood, the star is even parting with traditional celeb bridal designers (Jessica Biel will wear Monique Lhuillier, for example) to instead commission a gown from Chanel couturier Karl Lagerfeld.

Barrymore's art consultant fiancé Will Kopelman is the son of Arie Kopelman, a former head of Chanel USA, although we think Barrymore could have swung the connection on her own—Lagerfeld often dotes on entertainment's It-Girls, even designing musician Lilly Allen's reception dress last June. Barrymore and Kopelman recently returned from a trip to Paris, where the actress met with Lagerfeld's staff for the first of what will no doubt be many fittings. His most recent bride to walk the runway, after all, didn't leave much room for a baby bump.
