Ashley Greene isn’t following the rules when it comes to planning her wedding.
The 30-year-old actress tells PEOPLE she feels no pressure to rush to the aisle with her fiancé, Paul Khoury, revealing that she has yet to set a date or a pick a venue.
“I’m probably the most untraditional bride,” she says, laughing. “We’re at the age where a lot of our friends are getting married, and many of them are stressed out. That’s just not how I want to enter into our union. So, for us, we’re enjoying the honeymoon engagement stage.”
Greene, who was speaking on Saturday at the SIMPLY Los Angeles Fashion + Beauty Conference at The Grove in Los Angeles, says that just because she’s not in a rush, doesn’t mean her mom hasn’t been reminding her to get planning.
“My mom and his mom are like, ‘So, where’s the dress? Where are the bridesmaids? Where are you going to get married?’ and I’m like, ‘Chill. Slow your roll.’ We’re going to do it when it’s right,” she says. “My mom did remind me that wedding venues book up two years in advance.”
4 years and counting. Thank you for showing me the true meaning of unconditional love ❤️ You've somehow managed to keep that childlike wonder and excitement for every single small detail in this world and it makes me fall for you all over again every single day. Thank you for keeping my heart safe and full my angel. I love you more than words could ever express.
Greene says she wants a fun and relaxed wedding, without the restrictions of conformity.
“I just want it to be fun for everyone involved versus it being this really strict wedding,” she admits. “Thankfully, both of our mothers are very understanding and respectful of my process.”
When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress, Greene says she thinks that might take a little time.
“My wedding dress is going to be difficult because I’ve gone towards more simplicity, but I like detail,” she says. “I’m working on finding the perfect mix. I’ve tried on so many party gowns, how do you compete with that? But, when I see it, I think I’ll know.”

As for her guest list, the Twilight actress is definitely thinking about inviting some of her costars.
“They were such a huge part of my life for such a long time,” she says. “I think that’s also going to be depending on whether it’s going to be an intimate wedding.”
