Maci Bookout isn’t going to sugarcoat it: Wedding planning isn’t for everyone!

PEOPLE caught up with the Teen Mom OG star ahead of the season 6 premiere Monday, and the mom of three opened up about her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Taylor McKinney.

“Planning is going well, but I absolutely hate it, to be honest,” Bookout, 25, said with a laugh. “It’s just a lot to do, even with a wedding planner.”

“I’m the type of person that I don’t really care about all the decorations and flowers and stuff,” she added. “There are just so many little details that it can be quite overwhelming!”

That being said, she’s already picked out the dress, the venue and the theme for her fall wedding, which she described as “somewhat rustic.”

“The color scheme is a burgundy and a color that I like to call dusty blue, it’s kind of like a grayish blue color,” she revealed. “And the ceremony itself and reception are going to be very traditional.”

Bookout also revealed the couple plans on filming the wedding for a potential MTV special.

“I know my family and friends are really happy for us and are going to be so happy to be a part of the day, so I kind of felt like my fans and my following would appreciate it, too,” she said.

Bookout and McKinney, 27, got engaged in January – just one month before announcing they were expecting their second child together, son Maverick Reed, now 11 weeks.

“It’s crazy, but fun – we’re definitely never bored,” Bookout said of the last few months planning a wedding with a newborn.

“It’s been pretty chaotic, but we’re having fun,” she added. “Having three children is actually a lot harder than me or Taylor expected it to be, but we’ve been having a blast. We’re just living it up!”

And Maverick is hitting new milestones every day.

“Right now, he can officially hold his head up,” she said. “He’s starting to do what they call ‘tummy time,’ and he interacts a little bit more and can actually track toys or people or noises and he’s had his first few smiles.”

And while Bookout and McKinney haven’t released a picture of their son just yet, the star did tease one small detail: “Just a hint for everyone – he looks exactly like Bentley,” she said. “Identical!”

Bentley, 7, is Bookout’s son with ex Ryan Edwards. The star also shares daughter Jayde, 1, with McKinney.

According to Bookout, her eldest son is loving the new addition to the family.

“Bentley loves him,” she gushed. “He’s a great big brother. He really enjoys having Jayde and Maverick.”

And Jayde is forming a special bond with her little brother, too.

“I thought she was going to hate his guts, because she’s so sassy and was the only little baby in our family so everything was about her all the time, but she’s actually become very loving towards him,” Bookout revealed. “She likes to lay with him and give him a kiss – it’s been really cute.”

Teen Mom OG‘s two-hour season 6 premiere airs Monday at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
