No bridezilla here. Jamie Chung says fiancé Bryan Greenberg is better at calling the shots when it comes to their upcoming nuptials.
“We’re equally excited,” the Believe star tells PEOPLE.
The former How to Make It in America and One Tree Hill actor, 35, surprised Chung, 30, by popping the question in her native San Francisco over the holidays, and, since then, the two have been in full-fledged planning mode.
“Actually, he’s better at planning parties than I am,” admits Chung – though she hasn’t relinquished control altogether.
“He wants a big blow out and I want to keep it intimate, so there’s certainly things we need to work out.” But what’s wedding planning without a guest list debate?
One thing she is completely in control of – the dress! The PEOPLE StyleWatch Celeb Style Council member has an eye for fashion, and for her own wedding, she’s eyeing one designer in particular.
“Monique Lhuillier is a designer I lust for,” Chung says. “I saw her Fall 2014 runway show and it was literally like an opera. I would love to wear one of her dresses!”
