Michelle Keegan is set to marry Essex beau Mark Wright in a few very short months and We. Can't. Wait. Goodbye Kim Kardashian-West, there's a new bride in town!

Although the pair, who were engaged in Dubai in September 2013, have remained pretty schtum about their plans for the big day, when we caught up with Michelle at the London launch of her spring/summer range with Lipsy, she couldn't help but spill a few beans!

And it seems designing all of the gorgeous dresses has provided inspiration for her own wedding gown.

Despite admitting in a recent interview that Amal Alamuddin's (George's Clooney's wife) lace Oscar De La Renta lace frock was the one that stood out for her, Mich admits that after trying several dresses on, she still couldn't come to a decision.

So she's designing her own, of course!

"I couldn't find one I really liked so I took inspiration from various dresses and it's being made for me," Michelle says.

"I like simple dresses and that's my style so I'm not going to change it. I have definitely been quite hands-on in the designing process."

She also hints at the style of the dresses she's chosen for her seven bridesmaids, including former Corrie co-star Brooke Vincent and Mark's sisters Jess and Natalya: "They'll be traditional," she teases.

The pair are still keeping the location of their nuptials secret but have revealed that while there was speculation they'd tie the knot in their favourite holiday destination, and scene of the romantic proposal, Dubai, the two homebodies plan to marry closer to their friends and family.

They are though, planning one hell of a blow-out for their stag and hen dos! In fact, an insider tells us Mark is planning an impressive three stag-dos - from Essex, to Vegas, to Austria, he really is planning to 'Party Wright Around the World'.

But Michelle has also revealed she'll be having her own celebrations with her gal pals.

"I'd love to go to Las Vegas for my hen night. I'd fly all the girls out and it'd be like The Hangover."

Count us in Mich!
