It may seem like 2024 is Sydney Sweeney's year—because, honestly, it is. The actress, who made a name for herself in shows like The White Lotus and Euphoria, starred in the 2023 box office smash hit Anyone But You. While she received plenty of buzz for her chemistry alongside co-star Glen Powell, you might not know that her real-life love, Jonathan Davino, worked alongside her behind the scenes to bring the rom com to life. So, who is Syndey Sweeney's fiancé?

The actress and Chicago-based restaurateur have been together since 2018. While they keep their relationship incredibly private, we do know that they got engaged in 2022. But, if you were hoping for a Sydney Sweeney wedding any time soon, you might have to wait a bit longer. In December 2023, the A-lister gracefully avoided a question from Entertainment Tonight about her wedding plans, instead saying, "I am so busy working. I'm a workaholic and I love it, I love it."

Although there might not be a date set just yet, we can't help but dream about what Sydney Sweeney's wedding might look like. Here, we break down everything to know about her relationship with Jonathan Davino, along with our top predictions for their nuptials.

Sydney Sweeney's fiancé is Jonathan Davino. The 40-year-old entrepreneur hails from Chicago and has made a name for himself in the hospitality industry. According to Crain's Chicago Business, Davino was once the owner of Chicago restaurants Mista Pizza and Pompei Xpress, which are now closed. He comes from a family of entrepreneurs, as they also owned the famous Chicago pizza business Pompei and the design and packaging companies 14th Round and Final Bell.

Despite being set to marry one of the most famous actresses today, Jonathan Davino lives a private life. He doesn't appear to have public social media accounts, and Sydney Sweeney has never posted about him on her own.

    She added that the "crazy" public fascination with her private life took off amid her skyrocketing career. "Everyone is always so curious about who I'm with and what's that like, but I think it's important to have something for me. I'm very open [otherwise]," she continued. "I talk about so much and sometimes it gets me in trouble, but I do try to keep something for me."

    She also briefly opened up about her professional collaboration with her fiancé, who helped produce Anyone But You, saying, "It's really great to work with someone who knows you so well, who fully supports your ideas, your vision and your voice. And it's nice. I mean, who doesn't want to be with their best friend all the time? … I just wanted to bring everybody into my world."

    Sydney Sweeney's Wedding Predictions

    Although not much information about Sydney Sweeney's upcoming wedding is public, we can't help but daydream about what her big day will look like. We share our top three predictions for Sydney Sweeney's wedding below.

    The Wedding Will Be Private

    If one thing's certain, it's that Sydney Sweeney and Jonathan Davino's wedding will be an intimate affair. Given the couple's choice to keep their romance out of the spotlight, we likely won't know anything about their big day until it's over—even then, they may continue to play coy about their nuptials.

    The Couple Will Have Events in Chicago

    With Jonathan Davino's ties to the Windy City, we wouldn't be surprised if the couple swaps vows in Illinois. Plus, we predict that Davino's family businesses might even supply catering for the event. (Late-night deep-dish pizza, perhaps?)

    The Bride's Close Friends Will Be in Attendance

    In November 2022, Sydney Sweeney served as a bridesmaid for one of her longtime friends—so there's no doubt that her own loved ones will have a similar role on her wedding day. In addition to her friends and family out of the spotlight, we wouldn't be surprised if some of Sweeney's famous friends land on the guest list, like her Euphoria co-stars Zendaya and Maude Apatow, her White Lotus co-star Alexandra Daddario, singer Halsey and actress Lili Reinhart.

    Seeing celebrity wedding dresses is basically our Super Bowl—so with Sydney Sweeny's nuptials on the horizon, we can't help but dream about what her bridal wardrobe will look like. Her red carpet style typically skews feminine and romantic, so we're excited to see what dress designer she'll don for her walk down the aisle. Here are five wedding dresses we'd love to see Syndey Sweeney wear. (And, who knows—if you're engaged, maybe it'll spark inspiration for your nuptials too.)

    Amsale Camelia Dress

    Amsale wedding dresses are timeless, classic, and oh-so stunning—just like Syndey Sweeney's fashion sense. We love the idea of seeing her exchange vows in a crisp ball gown with clean lines like the Amsale Camelia Dress. We also wouldn't be shocked to see her rocking an of-the-moment trend, like a bow wrapped around the bodice.

    Danielle Frankel River Dress

    Danielle Frankel has made a name for herself as the ultimate cool-girl bridal label, with stars like AnnaSophia Robb, Alexandra Daddario and Kate Bock opting for her elegant and chic designs. Considering neck scarves are one of our top celebrity wedding trends of 2024, we wouldn't be shocked to see Sweeney nail this elevated aesthetic. With a simple neckline and a draped open back, this dress would leave us speechless.

    Galia Lahav Sasha Ball Gown

    Plenty of celebrities gravitate to Galia Lahav wedding dresses, and it's not hard to see why. From ornate beading to lavish lace and statement silhouettes, the brand's designs never fail to leave us in awe. If she opted for something dramatic, we'd love to see Sydney Sweeney in the label's Sasha ball gown. Not only does the semi-flared skirt remind us of her 2022 Emmy Awards dress, the intricate layers of floral appliques and shimmering beadwork make this gown a true work of art—perfect for making anyone feel like a star on their big day,

    Oscar de la Renta Fall 2024 Look 9

    It's no secret that celebs love going custom on their wedding day—so while this bride-to-be could absolutely dream up her own Oscar de la Renta gown from scratch, we'd be thrilled if she took a cue from the brand's Fall 2024 collection. The ninth look is a gauzy dream with billowing sheer fabric and a romantic off-the-shoulder neckline, but the true show-stopping detail is the whimsical floral trim lining the veil. Mark our words: If Sweeney wore a gown like this for her wedding, flower veils would be the next big wedding trend.

    Berta Como 22-01 Dress

    Picture this. If Sydney Sweeney were to get married on Lake Como (or at any venue overlooking the water), we'd be over the moon to see her in a swoon-worthy gown like Berta's 22-01. Part of their Como collection, this gorgeous gown features airy puff sleeves and a trailing sheer skirt decorated with floral lace—in other words, perfect for Sydney Sweeney, in our humble opinion.
