As cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Glee, Jane Lynch is a major pain – but don t expect her to become a bridezilla as she prepares for her upcoming wedding.

“I m very excited!” Lynch tells PEOPLE about her nuptials to psychologist Lara Embry. “It s a great and wonderful thing at the tender age of 49 to have finally found somebody that I want to be with. I m so lucky.”

Lynch admits that she does share some personality traits as her alter ego, Sue, but says wedding planners have nothing to worry about.

“I can be aggressive like her. One of the things Sue Sylvester is – she s a warrior,” Lynch said at the 69th Annual Peabody Awards in New York on Monday. “She s always looking for a fight, and I go through stuff like that. With the wedding plans and even when I got to my hotel here in New York, I was looking for everything to be wrong and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m doing my Sue Sylvester.’ ”

But the comparisons to her character end there – and she won’t be bringing any of her other Glee qualities to the nuptials, either. “I will not be singing and don t expect any track suits at my wedding,” she says with a laugh.

So what is the most exciting aspect of marriage for Lynch? “I’m looking forward to spending every day with this woman all the time,” she says, “and we’re making that happen.”
