Snooki to have Great Gatsby wedding

2014-02-21 20:00

Los Angeles - Snooki is having a Great Gatsby-themed wedding. 

The reality TV star - real name Nicole Polizzi - is getting ready to tie the knot with her fiancé Jionni LaValle and has chosen the theme for her nuptials, which will be based around the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel set in the roaring 20s - which was recently turned into a film by Baz Luhrmann.

She told In Touch Weekly magazine: "It's a Great Gatsby theme, with black and gold."

Snooki - who has a 15-month-old son Lorenzo with Jionni - has already picked her wedding gown and party dress for the reception and neither outfit is influenced by her Jersey Shore style. 

She revealed: "I got my dresses. Everyone expects me to wear glitter and leopard [print] and I'm like, 'Maybe, if I got married four years ago'. I got an elegant ballgown for the church, and a mermaid style dress with a poufy train for the reception."

Although she wants her big day to be special, Snooki is not going to spend a fortune on her wedding and is going to cut costs where she can.

She said: "I don't have a wedding planner. I'm trying to save money - I'm so cheap! Plus, I don't like people telling me what to do."
