Hayden Panettiere dazzles every week on Nashville, nailing her notes and style as country crooner Juliette Barnes. And while her character is bouncing around from guy to guy, Hayden herself has officially settled down with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko. The two announced their engagement back in October 2013 — and now Hayden is looking gorg on the cover of Brides!

“I think it’s nice to just enjoy this phase of the relationship,” Hayden tells the mag, adding that she and Wladimir “haven’t even planned the wedding yet.” Dang girl, get on it!

While Hayden and her man haven’t started in on the logistics, that doesn’t mean the event has been far from her mind.

“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,” Hayden dished about the nuptials. “I want it to be classic, beautiful, and elegant, but I also want it to be fun! I love color, so that will play a big part.”

In the magazine, Hayden did slip into some amazing gown that would be perfect for her wedding day. She wore Naeem Khan, Lhuillier, and Marchesa gowns for the shoot — but her 100-watt smile really caught our eye.

You may think that walking down the aisle would be Hayden’s favorite thing about the upcoming wedding day, but you’d be wrong.

“The idea of starting my own family is very exciting to me,” she gushed. “It’s something I’ve always dreamed of.” Precious, right?
