Emily isn’t saying who she chose to design her wedding dress, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she gave the project to a “good friend” Marc!

Designer Marc Bouwer knows exactly what Emily Blunt wants in a wedding dress. “She has a models body,” Marc explained of John Krasinki‘s fiancé to exclusively June 7 at “Freeing Voices Changing Lives,”The American Institute for Stuttering’s 4th Annual Benefit Gala at the Tribeca Rooftop in NYC. “I think she can take on different characters; she can be totally sophisticated and sweet and pretty. I would like to see Emily in something very slim, simple and sheath like!”

Marc, who’s very close friends with Emily, has already dressed her three times — twice for Stuttering Institute Galas, and once for the BAFTAs last year — so he knows what looks good on her. “She really likes the way my [dresses] fit her,” Marc said. So, in her wedding gown, he would like to see something with “a lot of action on the back, but a really slim shape. I would do amazing arrangements with these gorgeous flowers right here,” he said, pointing the lower-back area.

“I like taffeta,” Marc continued. “The shine has a bit of a gold iridescence to it, very slight just so that it adds a little bit of warmth to it.”

As for accessories: “I always love a long simple earring,” Marc said. “I know you’re not supposed to wear pearls at a wedding, [so] maybe throw in aquamarine — a hint of color. Something borrowed, something blue — there you go!”

Marc sees Emily as a type of “Alice in Wonderland” figure and would LOVE the chance to design her dress. “This is just a designer’s dream to do something like that,” he said. “Not that I’m doing it,” he added sarcastically.

What do you think, BFFs? Have we finally solved the mystery of Emily’s wedding dress designer?
