This weekend Sofia Richie is set to marry her fiance, British record executive Elliot Grainge in what is guaranteed to be the most lavish, fashionable, musically adept wedding of the year.

The model, fashion designer and daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie has been publicly dating Elliot since 2021. The two are singing of the same hymn sheet when it comes to their backgrounds as Elliot’s father Lucian Grainge is the CEO of Universal Music Group.

Elliot proposed to her a year later in April 2022, in an ethereal, beach-side, candlelit setting. As it impressive as it was, we were more overwhelmed by her stunning diamond cut emerald ring that is quite literally what dreams are made of.

Life is much easier when your father wholly approves of your partner. Lionel said: "I love Elliot. I've known him since he was 12," in an interview with Access Hollywood. "It was one of those things where I don't have to go back and check out the kid. I know who he is." We wonder if he approved of Scott Disick this much? You can be the judge of that one...

With a wedding as high-profile as this one, we expect a wedding day backdrop as opulent as the guest list and Sofia's signature style agenda. But where is she getting married, and who is attending? Here’s everything we know so far:

The Venue

Naturally, the actual venue has not been disclosed. But we do know she’s saying ‘I do’ in the picturesque holiday spot for the uber-wealthy, South of France. Many of her guests have checked into the prestigious Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc to begin the celebrations for the 24-year-old.

The Guestlist

As expected, the certified cool-girl is housing a guestlist to match. British influencer Amelia Liana, Tess Kemper - founder of Doll Face cosmetics, Instagram favourite Interior designer Roxy Bijany, Tania Shroff, Mariana Hewiit and Lauren Ireland - founders of current It-girl beauty brand Summer Fridays and fashion model Nada Adelle are just the beginning of a star-studded weekend.

The Wedding Dress

Sofia has long been the ultimate Chanel girl. From tweed skirt suits to glittery two pieces and now, pretty much her whole pre-wedding lookbook, Sofia is rarely spotted without the French label. Going by her signature style, we’re hedging our bets on her big day dress being slim fitting, uncomplicated and majorly chic, with Virginie Viard having her say somewhere in the ensemble…

Richie’s stylist Liat Baruch is right by her side for the celebrations and we have to say, her looks are enviably chic and so timeless that I’m personally taking notes for my own wedding (which is absolutely not going to be anytime soon.)

She’s already stunned in her ‘something blue’, wearing an ultra elegant dress from Khaite, boasting long, slightly fluted sleeves, a high neck and delicate sheer panelling across the neckline. 

She also wore the chicest cream beach cover up with a low neck and a contrasting black tie at the front from Chanel’s SS21 collection paired with the label’s beech wood vanity case.

Our other favourite look was a white Proenza Schouler mini dress with chunky gold buttons paired with a multicoloured Chanel box bag and pink and black textured Chanel flats. 

We'll be waiting All Night Long for snaps from her lavish big day…
