Lana Condor is ready to say "I do" to fiancé Anthony De La Torre — the sooner the better.

In a joint interview to discuss their new Amazon Handmade wedding collection, Condor and De La Torre reveal to PEOPLE exclusively how they're preparing for the big day. In fact, that momentous occasion could occur sooner than we think.

"We definitely don't plan on doing the long engagement mainly because we've been together for so long. We're like, 'Let's do this,'" says Condor, 25. "But I will say that we're in the process right now of wedding planning."

Condor says that De La Torre, 28, is "just as involved" in helping to plan the romantic affair, which is something she feels "very fortunate" for.

"He's in every meeting. He's very supportive and he has his ideas," she continues. "So, I think it's a pretty equal partnership when it comes to planning. I think the only thing that I might be a little bit more intense about is probably the food, because I am such a foodie, that there are very specific foods that I would like to be in the wedding."

Condor and De La Torre announced their engagement in January. They have been together for nearly seven years.

Prior to getting engaged, the To All the Boys I Love Before star was "dropping hints left and right" to get De La Torre to pop the question.

"Like, 'Hey, it's Christmas. I would love a certain present,'" she recalls. "I was definitely dropping hints left and right. And I was pretty hopeful. We've been together for six and a half years, basically. And so I kind of was like, 'I think it's time to get something.'"

Fortunately for Condor, De La Torre was also ready to take the leap (even asking her father for his blessing under the guise that he was "teaching me how to make banana bread, which was not a great cover") and plotting out his Mexico proposal months in advance — but he was "nervous" about his plan falling through.

"The moment I came up with the plan, I was just a nervous wreck," De La Torre says. "Once I finally got the ring, I was always checking to make sure that I didn't lose it. I probably looked like a crazy person. ... Every 15 minutes, I would check where I had put it in my backpack to make sure."

But it all worked out according to plan. "It was just really beautiful. Lana's parents were there, and her brother [Arthur]. Yeah, it was exactly as I hoped it would be," adds De La Torre.

Now that the couple is in full wedding planning mode, they are teaming up with Amazon Handmade to launch their very own wedding collection. The twosome curated a collection of items crafted by artisans and makers around the globe that will benefit the wedding needs of all engaged couples.

Their collection featured in the Amazon Handmade Wedding Shop includes products ranging from the Personalized Wedding Thanks You Cards to the Future Mrs. Embroidered Baseball Hat to the Groom Squad Whiskey Glass Gift.

"I would say that us as a couple, we're pretty silly and we're pretty goofy in our taste. Sometimes I wish we had a little bit more of a specific taste, but we kind of go for goofy, fun, feel-good products," says Condor. "I think what's so interesting and what we found was very, very fun, was when we were kind of curating the product list, you can find the most unique things — kind of like things that are funny, almost, too."

To that, De La Torre adds: "Almost nothing on our list where we thinking about what other people would think of us. We only bought things that we would enjoy and make us laugh."
