You'd expect nothing short of over-the-top for the wedding of E!'s #RichKids of Beverly Hills (coming back to E! for a fourth season on April 17) cast member Morgan Stewart, 28. But hold onto your "Boobs and Loubs" (the social-media maven's Instagram handle) — her May 7 SoCal nuptials to real estate mogul and fellow #RichKid Brendan Fitzpatrick will be about close friends and family. However, that doesn't mean that this designer duds-loving diva will be without a wedding dress that wows. It's hard to pin down the jet-setting Stewart, but we got the engaged star to stand still long enough to try on a handful of gorgeous gowns and strike a few poses for our April/May 2016 issue (on newsstands now!). And after our day of dress-up, one thing's definitely certain — this is one #RichKid who is sure wealthy in style...
"Parts of the wedding will be on the show, but we want to keep it to 150 guests," Morgan told us during our bridal gown excursion. "We invited only people who we really care about." The decor will be minimal and classic (think all-white flowers), but Morgan is planning a banging party where guests can dance and drink until the wee hours. "I want everyone to look around at 2 a.m. and think, 'That was the best night ever, and it flew by!'"
She and Brendan also plan to recite their own vows. It's the moment Morgan's most excited about, since it's "the one time you get to say exactly how you feel about the person you love." And though reality TV is often anything but, how she feels about her fiancé is the real deal. "As life goes on, you have hardships and things happen that you can't control," she says. "But I'm marrying Brendan because he's the one I want to go through all that with, the good and the bad."
"It was so fun playing dress-up!" Morgan said of our frock-filled day, but she's staying tight-lipped about her own search and will say only that she's leaning toward a custom-made creation. But needless to say, she's got plenty of wedding dress inspo from these ultra-chic dresses.

"This gown is comfortable and stunning but very low-cut in the front," the reality star said of this Monique Lhuillier number. One downfall of the look? "When we 'borrowed' a Great Dane and he dragged me along the street, I was sure that I would fall out of the top!" Oops! Wouldn't want that at her ceremony.

Next up was a beautiful Badgley Mischka gown. "I filmed with the designers last season, and they make the most beautiful dresses," Morgan recalls. "The fabric of this one is so luxurious. It was surreal to wear it while walking down Rodeo Drive." Now just imagine it walking down the aisle... Swoon!
