‘American Idol’ Alums Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young Set a Wedding Date, Bride-To-Be Picks A Wedding Dress (EXCLUSIVE DETAILS)

It’s been nearly five months since Ace Young stole the show on the Season 11 finale of American Idol with his sweet proposal to fellow alumni Diana DeGarmo.

These days, Young, 31, and DeGarmo, 25, have been busy planning their nuptials, which Celebuzz can exclusively confirm has been set for June 1, 2013.

“It’s going to be in L.A. And we’re thinking it’s going to be an outside wedding,” DeGarmo told us.

“We’re hippies and we love being outdoors. I grew up in the South fishing and hunting and Ace loves mountain sports,” the bride-to-be said.

“It’s too darn hard to do a wedding in another city . . . we want it to be really laid back and low key,” she added, with a laugh.

What else can we reveal about Young and DeGarmo’s big day?

The American Idol alums are currently writing a duet album together, which they plan to incorporate into their wedding. The songwriters will also write their own vows.

And don’t expect these stage stars to do it small. Young and DeGarmo plan on inviting a whopping 200 to 400 VIPs to their big celebration, including some very recognizable faces.

Ryan Seacrest will definitely get an invite because he was there in the big moment, and Dee Snyder!” DeGarmo said of the Twisted Sister frontman, who was also her co-star in the CMT series Gone Country.

And what about the most important detail of all — the wedding dress?

It took DeGarmo pretty much no time to find her perfect gown. After all, it was the first one she tried on.

“I was really fortunate to find a dress so quickly. I had an idea what I wanted and I actually envisioned what I ended up with,” she said, adding that the designer is Sareh Nouri, who is based in New York.

Idol fans will get a sneak peek at DeGarmo’s dress later this month, as the singer’s dress search, with help from stylist Renee Strauss, was filmed for an episode of Brides of Beverly Hills.

“It’s perfect,” DeGarmo gushed.
