Jenny Craig spokeswoman and Shedding for the Wedding host Sara Rue is finally kicking her wedding planning into high gear.

“It’s going really well all of a sudden,” Rue, 31, told PEOPLE at the Audi and J Mendel Golden Globes Week kick-off bash. “We actually just hired a wedding planner, which we have been saying we were going to do for a year – and we actually did it.”

The newly trim TV star, whose show premieres Feb. 23, has been engaged to her fiancé, teacher Kevin Price, since August 2009 but has just partnered with the “amazing” Rachel Hollis, a wedding planner for Chic Events.

Hollis, a fan of Rue’s from her Popular days, told PEOPLE she’s hoping to incorporate the couple’s “eclectic yet elegant” style while designing the wedding, and she says the couple is looking for an “intimate” reception – nothing “ostentatious and over the top.”

While many details are still up in the air, the couple are already set on one thing: the music – and they’re hiring a deejay.

Rue, who was previously married to documentary filmmaker Mischa Livingstone, is also certain that Price is the guy for her – despite a hiccup or two in their relationship.

“I broke up with him,” Rue said. “But then when we got back together [and] I said, ‘See, I was stupid. I was right the first time.’ ”

But for Price, Rue was always the woman of his dreams.

“I think she’s just the most beautiful person, inside and out,” he says. “Just thinking about her makes me smile. And she’s got such a great heart.”

What exactly made Rue give Price a second chance?

“The sex,” she says. “It’s just so good. That’s the truth.”
