Cynthia Bailey is eager to begin her journey as a newlywed for the second time.
The 53-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member will tie the knot with her fiancé Mike Hill, who is a sportscaster for Fox Sports.
It will be Bailey’s second marriage after her disastrous first marriage to confidence artist Peter Thomas in 2010.
Invited guests include RHOA cast mates Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore and former RHOA cast mate Eva Marcille, who will all serve as bridesmaids.
Ex-RHOA cast member NeNe Leakes is also invited, but according to Page Six, she failed to RSVP by press time.
Bailey defended invited so many guests to her extravagant wedding and she detailed the safety preparations amid the slowing coronavirus pandemic.
Bailey told Page Six she established strict Covid-19 protocols for her wedding which takes place on Oct. 10 at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Ga., about 27 miles northwest of Atlanta.
Her 250 guests will wear full protective gear and there will be hand washing stations. She said security will eject guests who can't be bothered to wear PPE.
"If anyone doesn't adhere to the rules, then they're just going to be asked to leave," Bailey said. "We're taking this seriously, we want to protect ourselves and our guests."
"We have so many rules and regulations in play, I'm surprised anyone is coming," Bailey said. "We have sanitizing stations, we have an actual basin to wash your hands in before you enter the venue, we have temperature checks and the way the venue is set up, you can be indoors or outdoors the entire time if you want to."
She continued, "We set up the food stations taking all of this into consideration, and you don't have to sit at a table with people you don't know, you can kind of move around. It's a huge space, so you can be as far away from people as you want while still feeling connected to the ceremony."
