Gabrielle Union Says Dwyane Wade Took The Lead On Planning Their Wedding: ‘Secretly, This Is His Princess Moment’
Considering that she didn’t have the time to participate in the planning of her first wedding, you’d think that Gabrielle Union would jump at the opportunity to plan the wedding of her dreams the second time around. But according to the “Being Mary Jane” actress, her fiancé, Dwyane Wade, is the one having all of the fun planning their wedding.
“I’m out doing wine tastings, secretly this is like his princess moment he has waited for for a long time, he’s been hoarding bridal magazines, he’s very ready,” she joked during an appearance on “The Ellen Show.”
The 41-year-old bride-to-be adds that her Miami Heat-playing boo is involved in the tiniest details of what their special day will look like.
“He’s into aspects I didn’t even know went into wedding planning. He is on. To have a centerpiece, to not have a centerpiece—he has very strong opinions. [He says] no centerpieces. Who cares? Um, he does! He’s very particular about the music and the guest list.”
She went on to reiterate that not many people will be invited to the wedding.
“I think people are thinking [the guest list] is a lot bigger than it is. They’ll find out when [they're not invited].”
Ellen also probed about the couple’s 9-year age difference, which Gabby says is most prevalent during bedtime and when it comes to their musical preferences.
“The biggest is like for music. Like I want the O’Jays to play at our wedding. He wants Young Jeezy. You know, I’m like, ‘Ooh, Patti Labelle,’and he’s like, ‘Ariana Grande.’ It’s night and day.”
“If we’re watching ‘Nashville,’ which is one of our favorite shows, I might drift off. That’s one of the downsides of dating an older gal—we drift off.”
While she’s speaking a little more freely about their wedding plans, she remains tight lipped about the actual wedding date.
