The bride-to-be made the first move. When designer and TV personality Whitney Port started to develop feelings for Tim Rosenman, a producer on her reality series The City, she called him. “I got his phone number and made up some excuse why I needed to reach him,” Whitney tells Hello! “I knew because of our jobs that he wasn’t going to cross that line.”
But when it comes to planning their wedding, Tim is definitely pulling his weight. “He has been heavily involved,” says Whitney, 30, who hasn’t revealed the date of their nuptials. “It helps make the process easier for me. I don’t have to make all decisions on my own."
The dress, though, is entirely her call. Whitney – whose line, Whitney Eve, has been worn by Rihanna and Jessica Alba – says she hasn’t pinned down her look yet . “I could either choose super-relaxed and non-fussy or something really intricate and detailed. Too many options!”
We asked Whitney to share her wedding prep routine , and it turns out the West Coast native is one laid-back bride-to-be.
Congratulations on your upcoming
wedding. How are you preparing
for the big day?
My workouts have become more regular. I grew up in an athletic family, so I’ve always stayed pretty active. My motto is “everything in moderation.” I’ve been working out five times a week and do a mix of spin and yoga. I try to eat as healthy as possible, but indulge and enjoy when I want to.
Do you and Tim exercise together?
He joins me whenever he can. When we first started dating, we would try to go to the gym together and he hated it. Slowly, he’s come around. We also love to cook together. It’s a fun way to relax and hang out.
How did you know that Tim was right for you?
Gosh, he just makes me laugh harder than anybody does. We just get each other on a very unspoken level.
What advice have your married friends given you?
Just to enjoy every moment and try not to get too stressed and caught up on details that don’t matter.
How do you keep stress in check?
I always keep things in perspective. Almost two years ago, my father passed away and so I’ve dealt with a good amount of grief. Now I realize that life is too short to worry about the things that are actually exciting.
We watched you on The Hills and then The City.
Have you ever thought about a return to TV?
I wouldn’t be opposed to it, but my focus is on growing my clothing line, evolving as a designer and now planning my wedding.
