Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo are tying the knot on June 1!

The American Idol alumni, who got engaged on the show’s 2012 finale, are putting the finishing touches on their wedding preparations – from the clothes, to the cake, to the guest list – and they’re giving us a sneak peek of it all. Well, almost everything. Diana won’t reveal the wedding dress until she walks down the aisle. Not even a hint!

From now until their wedding, we’ll have exclusive videos of Ace, 32, and Diana, 25, as they count down to their big day.

Day 6: Why We Hired a Wedding Planner

Planning a wedding is hard work; details can fall between the cracks. Or, worse yet, you can forget to pay your vendors.

With busy filming and recording schedules, Ace and Diana decided to give control to a professional who could help their day go off without a hitch – and they couldn’t be happier. Their wedding planner, Renée Strauss, has given them detailed lists of what is finished – and what’s left to do.

“If it weren’t for this, we would be a hot mess right now,” says Diana in the latest video. “If you’re one of those brides who can do it all yourself, God bless you.”
