She took a moment to chat with PEOPLE and revealed a few details on her wedding plans.
“We’re definitely working on things every day,” she told PEOPLE at Degree’s pre-Grammy press day Tuesday in N.Y.C. “I’m going to do things in advance. Luckily, I have time still to work on everything. I feel like it’s going to work itself out though, because at least me and my fiancé are talking over things. So when it’s time to start working with a wedding planner it will like be A, B, C, boom. We’ll have a vision.”
She also already has an idea for a wedding dress:
“I’m starting to get there. I want elegant and classic to be the theme,” she shared. “I don’t know exactly what it is yet, but I do want it to be a little vintage-y, like something my mom would have worn, with a modern twist. I have an idea of the feeling I would love. I want to go a little throwback.”
That’s not the only dress on her mind, however. Ciara’s also gearing up for this year’s Grammys. As for that dress, well …. she didn’t say much.
“I’m working with one of my good friends for the Grammys, and I met with him just recently to do a fitting so I’m really excited,” she revealed. “I think it’s going to be really beautiful. I’m feeling really good about it.”
Could it be Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci? Probably. She’s always in his designs.
So, aside from the dress — what does it take to get a ‘Ciara’ look? She says:
“We budget three hours of time before the show, and then I eat up an hour from just moving around and driving my team crazy and being silly. But typically we get straight to it. We play good music, we talk and laugh. We go over the look a few days before. I like my team to think things through, and then when we get into the room we go for it. Makeup first, hair second and we just roll.”
We wish Ciara the best with her wedding plans! Don’t miss The 56th Annual Grammy Awards on Jan 26th!
