Mandy Moore isn't your average bride. The This Is Us actress says that she is not stressing at all for her upcoming wedding to musician Taylor Goldsmith. In fact, Moore has a pretty que será, será attitude when it comes to her big day. "It will just end up unfolding the way it’s supposed to," the 34-year-old star recently told People. And just like the bride herself, her wedding dress will be similarly laid-back, too, Moore muses.
“I don’t know what it’s going to be quite yet,” the actress said of her wedding dress. “I never really had these grand ideas of what that day would look like. I need to get to the point where I can decide on something.” But while many of the wedding dress details are still up in the air, Moore is sure that she'll end up choosing something totally non-traditional.
“I’m kind of confident that it’s not going to be the stereotypical white wedding dress, because it just doesn’t feel the most me,” she said, adding, "It’s going to probably be a little bit more non-traditional. I think the whole day will sort of feel a little bit more non-traditional, so the dress will sort of follow suit. I kind of want to feel like the best version of myself.”
The bride-to-be and her fiancé got engaged in September 2017 after a few years of dating. Goldsmith popped the question in their home in Pasadena, California, and though the two already live together, Moore said she's looking forward to everything that comes with being married.
“I am excited just to be married. I don’t think our lives are going to change all that much, but I am excited just to be able to say like husband and wife,” explained Moore. “It’s like, we already live together, I don’t know how different everything is going to feel. But it will be fun to have a party and celebrate.”
Moore has also previously stated that she wants her big day to be a low-key affair. "This is my second go-round," she told Us Weekly, referring to her first marriage to singer Ryan Adams that ended in 2016. "I feel like I eloped before and I think I'll probably keep it very small again. I've never been the girl that wanted to wear a white dress. No judgement, but it's not for me. I think it'll be just as small with family and friends. Quit, no bridal magazines for me."
Maybe she just doesn't know about all the non-traditional wedding dresses in Brides!
