Ricki Lake Thinks She's Found Her Wedding Gown

Ricki Lake Wedding Dress

On Sunday night at the Trevor Project’s “Trevor Live at the Hollywood Palladium,” a fit and glowing Ricki Lake was ready to talk about her wedding plans — or at least the most important detail. “I may have found a dress,” the actress and former Dancing with the Stars finalist admitted to PEOPLE. “I have someone who has been looking for me. It’s vintage.”

As for the inspiration behind the gown, set to arrive at her house Monday, Lake said, “I wanted something simple, on the bias, and flattering. It’s got a lot of detail. It’s very pretty. I’m not going to say any more yet because I haven’t even seen it firsthand, I’ve just seen a picture!” She previously said she was waiting until Dancing was over to try on dresses, and lost a significant amount of weight while competing on the series.

Lake, who announced her engagement to Christian Evans in August, said the couple needs some time alone to get into the wedding planning. “We are just starting to talk about it. Next weekend we’re going away together and we’re going to try to start figuring out what we’re doing,” she revealed. “Then we’re going to Paris on holiday for two weeks and then we’ll start planning. But it’s going to be soon.” It might even be a destination wedding, Lake shared.

But regardless of location, Lake is excited to make her nuptials her own. “We’re going to be very non-traditional in every way,” she said. “We’re going to do something that is right for us and not what everyone else does. It’s going to be a unique experience.”

And while Lake said she is “excited” to try on the dress, she is “mostly excited to marry that guy,” she joked, gesturing to Evans, whom she stayed close to throughout the event.

Also at the star-studded gala, where Lady Gaga was honored with the Trevor Hero Award for her work against bullying, were Amy Adams, Dianna Agron, Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and wife Amy Poehler, Mary J. Blige, Miley Cyrus, Josh Duhamel and wife Fergie, Zac Efron, Julianne Hough, Rashida Jones, Queen Latifah, Jane Lynch, Zoe Saldana and many others. The Trevor Project, founded in 1998, is an organization dedicated to providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
