“We’ve been planning, so hopefully early next year,” the actress told PEOPLE about a possible wedding date while recently attending her friend Haylie Duff’s The Real Girl’s Kitchen cookbook signing in Los Angeles.
“We don’t have an exact date, but I want to marry him tomorrow so I want to go as fast as possible.”
The actress, 27, added that no matter when the nuptials happen, there will be considerable planning involved on her part.
“He doesn’t care, and that’s what he keeps telling me,” she said with a laugh of Sweeting’s wedding-planning input. “He knows that I’ve been planning this in my brain for 25 years, so he’s not daring to get in there. He’s like, ‘Whatever you want!’ ”
Sweeting, 26, a professional tennis player, may not be picking out place settings, but he’s had one unexpected effect on his fiancée.
“[I’m] such a homemaker!” she says with a laugh. “I don’t know what happened. I got engaged and I’m in the kitchen every night making meals. I love it!”
