Kate Bosworth Is Not Your Typical Celebrity Bride, And Here's Why

Newly married Kate Bosworth covers Lucky magazine's latest issue, and in it, she confesses that she hadn't thought about the Big Day prior to finding The One.

“I had never thought about my wedding dress before I got engaged,” she told the magazine 12 days before her wedding to film director Michael Polish. “I never actually thought about what I wanted for my wedding. There are some women who know exactly, from the moment they can speak. But for me I needed to find the man in order to understand the bigger picture.”

And as she went through the wedding planning process -- culminating with her nuptials on August 31 -- friends gave Bosworth very specific advice.

“Don’t try to not cry. If you’re going to cry, cry. When you try not to, it’s the worst picture-face of all time,” a friend told the actress.

“I’ll keep that in mind,” Bosworth said. “I suppose the best thing I’ve learned is to just be in the moment. It’s one of those clichés, but it’s true; if you try and control too much then you’ll really miss all the magic.”

Bosworth and Polish tied the knot in Philipsburg, Montana in front of 50 to 75 of their closest friends and family. The pair confirmed their engagement in September 2012.
