Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is set to tie the knot over Memorial Day Weekend with Candice Crawford, beauty queen and former sports reporter (and sister to “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford). The wedding will take place Saturday, May 28, at Arlington Hall at Lee Park.
Crawford tells Cowboys blog Blue Star that they plan to keep the affair “as private and personal as possible.”
“You dream about this as a little girl,” she says. “You don’t dream, though, that Badgley Mischka’s going to do your bridesmaids dresses and you don’t dream that people are going to give you the support that they have. So we’re just really thankful that people have wrapped their arms around us.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is invited to the wedding, and he had to get special permission to attend due to the complicated legalities of the NFL lockout. He won’t be allowed to talk football with Romo at the event, but he’s able to attend as a friend of the couple.
Romo and Crawford got engaged last December on her 24th birthday.
