While her Girls character Marnie is still reeling from a bad breakup, Allison Williams’s love life is pretty perfect right now. The actress recently got engaged to boyfriend of three years,’s Ricky Van Veen, and is still basking in the excitement. (And with a gorgeous sparkler like that one at left, we don’t blame her.)

So how have her costars been celebrating the happy news? Show creator Lena Dunham is busy planning a prank!

“Lena has already threatened to hide my engagement ring, which I really hope she doesn’t do,” Williams told PEOPLE Thursday at the Television Academy’s Girls event in North Hollywood, Calif.. “She’s like, ‘We’re gonna have to find ways to hide it while we’re shooting.’ I was like, ‘Okay, then I’m going to hide it on part of my body that you can’t see.’ I know she’s obviously kidding.”

And when her wedding day eventually comes, Dunham and the rest of the cast will definitely be on the list. As for setting a date, Williams said she’s not there yet.

“Literally, we have not even started thinking about the logistics of the wedding. It’s so funny, even my friends are like, ‘So, ballpark, just tell me what time of year, just in case I travel,’ and I have no idea,” she shared. “As of now, it just exists as this hypothetical thing that will happen eventually. And none of it has started to become real yet. So eventually that’ll become things that we’re concerned with. But for now, it’s just the fun part.”

We can’t wait for it to happen — and to see the stunning dress Williams will inevitably wear. Are you excited for her wedding? What do you think of her engagement ring? Share your thoughts below!

It’s not a pregnancy. Leave the ring at home. Problem solved.

Hope she remembers to make sure to tell Lena the wedding is NOT clothing optional.

Will never understand the appeal of the show or its leading actress. Both are obnoxious and highly overrated.

I love and respect Lena Dunham’s nudity and baring all.

Off topic; she’s starting to look a little anorexic. Not very appealing.
