As Snooki prepares for her big day with her fiancé Jionni, she recently sat down to chat with YourTango for an exclusive interview about her wedding (and wedding dress!) plans.

A lover of all things animal print, the meatball mama revealed that she plans to her bridesmaids in leopard print dresses! When asked what we can expect from her wedding Snooki revealed “It won't be leopard like everyone thinks—that's for my bridesmaids. I've started to look, and I love open back dresses with maybe a big bow on the butt. I honestly have no idea, but whatever I find is going to be so elegant but gaudy at the same time. You can have the best of both worlds!”

Whatever she ends up choosing, we know it’ll be fabulous, and we’re delighted to know that Snooki is sticking to Jionni’s prediction of their big day being a “safari” with her bridesmaids in leopard print, including her BFF JWOWW of course.

“[Jionni and I] realized we want to get married sometime next year,” the guidette told YourTango. “No date set yet, and it will probably be in Jersey.” Snooki has previously said that she and Jionni are planning on having their wedding when their dream home in New Jersey is finished with construction.

Snooki also revealed that she knew she loved Jionni within the first “three months of dating.”

I just realized that he was everything I've always wanted, and I could talk to him about anything,” she said. “Once you realize the guy you're in love with can be your best friend and lover, I mean, it's meant to be.” Aww, Snooki! We’re so happy for our girl, especially since she had been “Snookin’ for love” so hard in the beginning of Jersey Shore. We love that she’s finally getting her fairy tale ending.

As for the wedding’s theme, Snooki said she and Jionni “haven’t planned anything yet,” though they’ll need to start soon as the wedding will be sometime next year!
