Twilight star Nikki Reed is engaged to American Idol Paul McDonald – but she’s quick to dismiss any Breaking Dawn parallels. Nikki tells E! “They had a beautiful wedding, but Paul and I are just not Edward and Bella, at all!"

Ok, so if no vampire baby or looming Volturi doom, what can we expect from Nikki and Paul’s big day? "It will be small," Nikki says, adding that her maid-of-honor will be her BFF, Spy Kids star Alexa Vega. Paul says he might serenade his bride, joking, "I've got a handful of songs. I might bust out one or two."

Paul insists Nikki is no bridezilla: "We're both doing equal amounts," he says of planning for the big day, “It's coming along. I've obviously been doing a lot more since I've been back in town.” Paul just ended the Idols Live tour in late September and is back in LA with Nikki until the Breaking Dawn press whirlwind begins.

The groom is in the dark about one thing: the wedding dress. Nikki has the gown picked out, but says she hasn’t told Paul anything about it. "He's super traditional and wants to be surprised."
