Now that Ciara has welcomed her son Future Zahir, wedding planning is in full swing. In the August/September issue of Brides about her upcoming elegant nuptials to fiancé Future — and poses in several gorgeous gowns to make the point.
“Indoors and black tie,” she says of her vision for the event. “For the palette, I’m not into loud colors. I like black and white, classic and clean.”
Ciara also has her bridesmaids’ dresses figured out. “There will be five or six and two matrons of honor [including La La Anthony]. They’ll all wear the same color, but in different styles to suit their personalities. I want my ladies to look amazing!”
As for her own dress, Ciara told PEOPLE she’s in the market for something that’s a “little vintage-y”, but we’re loving the long-sleeve embroidered Chantilly lace Reem Acra gown she wears on the Brides cover. (Her close friend Kim Kardashian wore a long-sleeve lace gown for her big day, and we wonder if Ciara will follow suit!)
Something she definitely will have in common with Kardashian’s wedding to Kanyé West: Ciara and Future’s musician friends will lend their talents to the proceedings. “A few of our friends will sing, and we’ll have a great DJ — good old soul mixed with new stuff,” she says. “You want people to say, ‘This is my jam!'”
And while she’s very excited for the wedding, the star says she really can’t wait for married life. “Raising a baby together, traveling around the world, and creating new moments,” she says of what she’s most looking forward to. “I love that I won’t think twice about what I’m doing in life, because I know I’m doing it all for the person I love most. And I know he’s doing the same in return.”
