Whitney Port has all things bridal on the brain! The newly engaged designer is having a great time planning her upcoming nuptials to fiancĂ© Tim Rosenman, and she’s spilling some secrets about her big day.

“It’s going to be destination,” Port told PEOPLE at a Wedding Paper Divas bridal luncheon Tuesday in her honor. “Since I’m from here and Tim is from New York, we thought it would make sense for everyone to just be on neutral ground.”

And while she seems to have plans in motion, including a tentative date, Port hasn’t spent her whole life obsessing about her “big day.” (She has a secret Pinterest board now for inspiration, but that’s about it.) “I wasn’t that girl. I knew I wanted to have a fun party but it wasn’t something I knew the day I got engaged, ‘This is exactly what I want,’ at all.”

As for her ring (a round stunner set in rose gold), the star said she definitely had a vision in mind, but she let her sisters interpret that for her. “I would try to have the conversation with him about the ring, but he never wanted to have it with me. He wanted it to come from him, but I planted the seed. I said ‘Tim, I know you want to do this on your own, but just talk to my sisters.'”

Rosenman has also taken a similar hands-on approach to wedding planning, according to Port, who maintains she’s not a bridezilla. “I think he’ll be worse than I am honestly … I don’t see that happening to me, but you never know! He wants to be involved in all of this. I really trust his taste too.”

Catch a clip of Port below explaining the different vision boards she created with Wedding Paper Divas, and stay tuned for her custom line with the papery company! (Brides-to-be you will definitely gets some serious inspiration). Let us know which is your favorite!

Boring average blonde.

I wonder if she’s marrying a crow, a cardinal or an owl. Wish them the best in their nest. I hope they hatch a lot of eggs.
