Reportedly the former child star thinks it’s “a matter of getting five or six or making two or three” when it comes to her wedding dress, but says she has a lot of time before she stresses herself out about that and instead is focusing on designing a friend’s gown with twin sister Ashley Olsen. Olsen and Sarkozy have dated since 2012 and news of their engagement first came out in February of 2014.
