From the looks of it, the bag isn’t holding much. Does that mean she’s going minimalist for her bridal style? A simple slipdress perhaps? A body-skimming gown? The options are endless, but our best guess is that it’s not a wedding dress at all that she’s carrying. Since made-to-order wedding dresses typically take six to nine months to create and Chris Pratt only popped the question in January, her gown wouldn’t be ready yet even if she picked it out the day she got engaged.
Whatever is inside that mysterious garment bag could be for one of Schwarzenegger’s many upcoming pre-wedding parties. A source recently told E!News that Schwarzenegger is having a bridal shower in the next few weeks, and "just got a dress for it and is figuring out some of the other details."
"It will be her closest girlfriends, family, and some of Maria [Shriver]'s girlfriends," the source said of the guest list. "She also will have a bachelorette weekend that her sister is planning."
It sounds like wedding planning is in full swing for the duo! Pratt previously revealed that they were planning for a “maybe fall, winter kind of thing,” but with showers and bachelorette parties around the corner, it sounds like this timeline might be moved up a little.
"I feel like we're all really involved in wedding planning," Schwarzenegger recently told Entertainment Weekly of the process. "I think that, you know, for me, my family is very involved. I'm very involved, [Chris is] very involved … So it's a great combination of everything and just a really exciting and fun [time]."
Hopefully it’s not too exciting that they will want to plan forever. According to the E!News source they still haven’t settled on a date. "They have been back and forth on potential dates and making sure that everyone that they want to have come can come," the source said. "They both have big families and a lot of people they want to include. They know they want it to be before the end of the year. Chris wants Katherine to have whatever she wants and is letting her take the reins on planning. He wants to make sure it's the best day of her life."
