Selling Sunset costars Chrishell Stause and Mary Fitzgerald have been helping Young get ready for her wedding — although it is unknown if they are in Young's bridal party.

"Such a fun girls day today and we mayyy or may not have tried on wedding dresses and sipped on champagne all day long," Young wrote on Instagram.
El Moussa and Young's wedding probably won't be on Selling Sunset or Flipping 101
Young revealed that she's leaning toward not having the wedding filmed. During an interview with KTLA 5, Young says that it's something she and El Moussa have discussed. "It's a really personal and intimate day, and I don't know if I want my family mic'd up," she said. "I don't know if I want them pulled away while I'm having to film a scene. So, you know, it's something we're still in discussion about, but I'm leaning more towards no."
El Moussa hints his wedding will be in September
El Moussa suggests during an episode of HGTV House Party that his wedding with Young will be held in September. Hosts Loren Ruch and Brian Balthazar play a game with the Flipping 101 star where they ask him questions and he must try to match his answers to Young's answers which were privately given beforehand. When asked what he thinks Young believes is the best month for the pair to wed, El Moussa says September. One of the hosts reads Young's answer to the question, which says, "Depends on location, whenever the heat isn't too bad." El Moussa says with a smile: "That's why I said September."
Young will be taking El Moussa's last name
"I’m going to be Heather Rae El Moussa. I’m going to drop my last name," Young told host Amanda Hirsch on an episode of the podcast Not Skinny But Not Fat.
