Perrey Reeves is leaving Mrs. Ari Gold behind – and, actually, Mr. Ari Gold isn’t getting any love either.

With her wedding plans underway, the actress who played Jeremy Piven‘s wife on Entourage says her on-screen husband and his band of bros shouldn’t bother checking the mail for their invites.

“It’s not going to be like 500 people,” Reeves, 44, told PEOPLE at the Audi Golden Globes kick-off party in Los Angeles on Thursday. “That would be weird if it was only our families and then the cast of Entourage.”

Instead Reeves and fiancé Aaron Fox, 34, founder of the tennis company Grips, are opting for their wedding to have a vibe more like “a big family vacation with a beach, probably. We’re going to make this sweet and nice.”

She’s keeping her style similarly low-key: “Hopefully there will be a dress I already have in my closet that I like,” laughed Reeves. “As an actress, you get to dress up. You do hair, gowns, all that. It’s fun, but it wouldn’t feel like me. It would feel like me being in my job. I want to look like me, not Mrs. Ari.”

In the meantime, Reeves is happy just basking in the glow of being engaged. “It’s really nice. I never thought I’d be that girl who said, ‘Oh my God, look at my ring,’ ” admitted Reeves. “But, I’m that girl going, ‘Oh my God, look at my ring!’ ”
