Hayden Panettiere, who got engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko last year, is trying on this season’s trendiest wedding gowns in the April/May 2014 issue of Brides magazine. Slipping into gowns from Naeem Khan, Monique Lhuillier and Marchesa for the photo shoot, the Nashville star is all-smiles as she gushes to the publication about her life as a fiancée.

I think it’s nice to just enjoy this phase of the relationship,” she says, adding that the couple “haven’t even planned the wedding yet.”

“We’re dealing with my side [of the family] coming from the U.S. and his side coming from the Ukraine and all over Europe,” she explains of preparing for their nuptials. “I want it to classic, beautiful, and elegant, but I also want it to be fun! I love color, so that will play a big part.”

Panettiere, 24, also says that the part she’s most excited about her wedding is being able to spend time with her 37-year-old beau, who she first met when she was only 19.

“The idea of starting my own family is very exciting to me,” she tells the magazine. “It’s something I’ve always dreamed of.”
