As Hills fans everywhere wait for Lauren Conrad to start planning her Laguna Beach wedding to William Tell, we took it upon ourselves to imagine what Conrad's former co-stars might be asked to wear should they be included in her bridal party.

While Conrad is now best known for her fledgling fashion empire—she's launched two successful clothing lines to date, "LC Lauren Conrad" and "Paper Crown"—her MTV besties are equally famous for their outspoken opinions when it comes to well, everything.
Enlisting the help of recent California bride and Weddington Way business owner Ilana Stern, we took into account each co-star's personality along with the proposed wedding location, Laguna Beach, of course, to put together a cohesive bridal party look that even Olivia Palermo would approve of. (Ah, remember her? Why oh why did this franchise have to end?)
Maid of Honor: Lo Bosworth

Conrad's high school sidekick Lo Bosworth stuck with her through thick and thin, so it's only fitting she stand by Lauren's side as Maid of Honor. Preppy yet casual, sarcastic yet caring, we imagine Bosworth dressed in a floor-length gown with a flattering neckline. "Lo's style is perhaps the simplest of Lauren Conrad's friends," adds Stern. "A quintessential strapless maxi with sweetheart neckline would look amazing on her."
A-List Bridesmaid: Whitney Port

Aside from LC, Whitney has earned the most post-MTV kudos for launching her own successful fashion career as designer behind Whitney Eve. Known for her bohemiean style—we're still swooning over the flower crown Port wore to The Hills finale—we imagine The City starlet will want to wear something a bit less formal. "A bohemian Joanna August number is what I imagine being great on Whitney," says Stern. "Its flouncy top is chic, but laid back—just like Whitney."
A-List Bridesmaid: Audrina Patridge

Audrina epitomized cool-girl-meets-bad-boy (cough, Justin Bobby, cough) style on The Hills and was probably the only person on the show who managed to pull off black (and leather) despite the hot Los Angeles sun. Her bridal party look would no doubt stay true to her West Coast roots while also reflecting a bit of her bad girl edge. "Audrina's style is the epitome of casual California, and this Watters dress—in a color that's sure to show off her tan—reflects that."
B-List Bridesmaid: Heidi Montag

It would take an MTV miracle for Lauren to ask Mrs. Pratt to be a bridesmaid, although her last-minute appearance at Heidi and Spencer's wedding does give us a glimmer of hope. Should the queen of cosmetic surgery get a second change, there's no doubt her request to wear something body-skimming and utterly inappropriate will get shut down. "A simple, form-flattering dress is ideal for Heidi," says Stern.
B-List Bridesmaid: Stephanie Pratt

Although Spencer Pratt's little sister slid her way into LC's circle (and then subsequently out of it) on The Hills, her style sensibility never faltered. A big personality with a penchant for parties, Stephanie would need to wear something " flirty, fitted, and most of all fun!" says Stern.
B-List Bridesmaid: Kristin Cavallari

Last but certainly not least we have LC's forever frenemy Kristin Cavallari. A recent bride herself, Kristin married football quarterback Jay Cutler in a romantic Nashville ceremony, Kristin wouldn't be able to attend Conrad's wedding without a little something special. "This Jim Hjelm dress is classic, but the ruffled halter gives it a hint of edginess, which is perfect for Kristin," says Stern.
While it remains to be seen which MTV castmates are invited to what, LC's pending nuptials promises to be an unforgettable wedding. We know for certain that Lauren's enviable style will make this Laguna Beach blowout an affair to remember. Save us a seat, OK?
