Not sure what's worse .... the fact that Kristin Cavallari's wedding has been called off or that she posed for a wedding dress photo spread for Life & Style magazine just TWO days before announcing her wedding was kaput? Talk about awkward!

During the shoot on July 21 at LA’s Mondrian Hotel, Cavallari told the mag, “I want a romantic, mystical wedding, with lots of flowers."

The Hills hottie, 24, had been engaged to Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, 28, for four months and together for about 10 months. They were planning a spring wedding, and Cavallari intended to move to Chicago for the upcoming NFL season.

A source close to the couple told X17online exclusively:

    "Jay and his family were making fun of Kristin's dad's height a lot, and she got sick of it. That combined with a few other compatibility issues, lead them to break off the engagement."
