Kim Zolciak in her Wedding Dress

Planning a wedding can be exhausting -- even for celebrities like Kim Zolciak. Perhaps that's why her first wedding planning tip she gave to us when we sat down with her was the following: "I'd say my first one is probably elope."

Part joking, part not, Kim -- who is currently having her million dollar wedding broadcast to the world on Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding -- then quickly went back to beaming bride mode, and gave some good tactical advice to anyone stressed out with the minutae that can come with wedding planning.



Kim tells us that there were plenty of things she could and should have freaked out about in the lead-up to her nuptials. " I didn't have tuxedos 48 hours before the wedding -- they were stuck at customs. I didn't have a cake 10 days before, the flower guy backed out 10 days before, but hey, I was going to stand up on that altar with Kroy regardless." She shares advice that her girlfriends gave her along the way, urging brides to just "enjoy the process," because before they know it, the guests are leaving and the wedding is over.

But when you're Kim, perhaps one wedding isn't enough.

"I want to do it again, but like on a beach somewhere with just Kroy and I. I just want to get dressed up again ... So I can wait a year, have my dream dress made ... I'm going to be getting married to Kroy a lot because I really love him."

Hopefully Kim will feel better on her second "big day," as you can see she definitely wasn't 100% the first time in the preview clip below:
