There won’t be any rushing to the altar for Lauren Conrad.

While the former Laguna Beach and Hills star has been engaged to law student William Tell since early October, the two lovebirds have yet to set a date and that’s quite alright with Lauren.

“You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love,” Lauren told Cosmopolitan magazine. “When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be happy.”

For now, Lauren finds it exciting enough just to be engaged, a surprise she didn’t think would happen for at least another few months.

“I had no idea it was coming,” Lauren told the magazine of William’s proposal. “I thought he would wait until he finished law school.”

Given her Martha Stewart-level ability to plan perfect parties, we have no doubt that Lauren’s wedding will be spectacular no matter when she chooses it to be. We’re just happy Lauren is finally done with all those less-than-stellar guys we witnessed her date on The Hills and has found a true keeper.

“William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy, and when you meet a nice guy who also manages to keep your interest, that is the dream,” Lauren told Cosmo. “If you’re going to settle down, it should be with someone you can’t stop thinking about. Especially if you’re in your 20s. If I was single in my 60s, I would totally settle. I would!”
