Mad Men‘s gorgeously curvy Christina Hendricks is the latest engaged actress to grace the cover of InStyle Weddings. Inside the fall issue, she talks about finally finding love, and the intimate details of her upcoming nuptials to (500) Days of Summer‘s Geoffrey Arend. “Before I met Geoffrey, marriage just wasn’t that important to me. Once I fell in love, it became this very exciting idea to share my life with him and throw a wedding to celebrate.” She continues, “It was worth the wait — I wasn’t ever going to settle.” And settling isn’t something she was willing to do when it came to her wedding dress either — and luckily for her, it was another case of love at first sight. “It was the very first dress I tried on. It’s got a bit of Sophia Loren to it, but really, it’s a Christina Hendricks dress,” she says of the Carolina Herrera gown she’ll walk down the aisle in. And while she’s still keeping her final wedding day look under wraps, Christina does try on curve-flattering looks by Pronovias, Oscar de la Renta and Watters in the magazine’s pages, which hits newsstands today.

Who? and Domi, what rock do you two live under?

She’s amazing lead actress in Mad Men. Christina has actual talent versus the hot emotional messes that keep Young Hollywood in the cover of most weeklies.
