Events Planner Preston Bailey Is Pretty Much A Big Deal

The buzz surrounding Mena and Moss' walk down the aisle has turned up to 11 since the announcement that famed events planner Preston Bailey would be coordinating the big wedding day. Let's be clear: Snagging the in-demand Preston, who has overseen shindigs by the superstar likes of Oprah Winfrey, Uma Thurman, Ivanka Trump and Catherine Zeta Jones, is a coup, according to public events professional Nicole Newsum, who has worked with actress Nia Long, model Bria Murphy and has represented such high profiled brands as L'Oréal and SoftSheen-Carson. "Preston Bailey is the go-to visionary to make any space elegant," she tells EnStars. "I've seen his work in person and it’s just immaculate. He's really known for his decor, his centerpieces, and floral work."

Newsum added that the Mena/Moss wedding watchers will be in for a treat. "If you want your wedding to be simple and traditional, Bailey can do that," she says. "If you want an over-the-top rock and roll feel, Bailey can do that as well. I remember going to his 50th birthday party. The energy and look of the event had a very island feel to it with dancing...very thematic and theatrical...a piece of art."

The Wedding Will NOT Take Place Down Under

Reports were rolling from the Twitterverse to mainstream entertainment sites and tabloid outlets that Mena and Moss would be holding their much talked about pending nuptials in Australia, of all places. But as EnStars posted on May 29th, reports of an Iggy Azalea destination wedding were pure fabrication, according to the Artist Formerly Known As Bow Wow. "Nah, I'm not getting married in Australia," Moss set the record straight to Hip Hollywood. "I'm going to Australia to get a bag, turn up, promote the record (his latest “Where You At”) promote CSI: Cyber; do what I do. And bring my [tail] back to America and continue doing what I do." So it seems like rumors of a Caribbean wedding may be true after all.

LHHNY's Yandy Won't Be Getting A Wedding Invite

There appears to be no love lost between Mena and former Love & Hip Hop New York co-star Yandy Smith. In an apparent jab at her reality-show-sister-in-spirit--who married soon-to-be incarcerated beau Mendeecees in a live wedding ceremony on VH1 this past Memorial Day--the future Mrs. Moss made it clear on social media that she would never go that route, posting the below tweet.

Yandy responded on New York's Ebro In The Morning radio show with a two-fisted retort: "I just choose not to act a monkey..." Um...Wow. For Mena's part, the former video model has officially left the LHHNY franchise, detailing her polarizing run on the highly-rated series in an open letter. "I've always been open about who I am & my relationships just because I know my story were meant to be told," she explained. "I've made many mistakes and I get judged harshly. Thank God I'm as tough and bold as I am because the truth is many are like me."

Moss Should Expect An Epic Wedding Gift

When your fiancée buys you a gorgeous white BMW i8 even before you exchange I-Do's, life is good. The extravagant present, which Mena purchased for Moss for $200,000, may not be on the level of Beyonce's gift for husband Jay-Z (Queen Bey plunked down a spectacular $2 million for a Bugatti for Mr. Tidal's 41st birthday), but it was impressive nonetheless. Shad Moss....your move.

Expect The Unexpected

Moss and Mena have been engaged since September of 2014. And during that time the couple have been on-again and off again in terms of hammering out an actual date. But remember, you are also dealing with a smitten pair who could just as well sidestep all celebrity conventions. During the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao showdown in Las Vegas, Moss mused that the couple are keeping their wedding plans close to the vest. "We might just do it after the fight," Moss told People. "We might just do it after the fight. We're really spontaneous. That's what's great about us. We break rules. We have our own rules." Whatever happens, here's hoping for a long, loving union.
