But Jessica is determined her wedding will be nothing like the ceremony she had with her ex-husband Nick Lachey and doesn't want to wear a traditional white dress.

Jessica - who got engaged to Eric, 34, in November 2010 after five months of dating - recently admitted her plans have been progressing and she is ''very close'' to issuing invitations for her nuptials.
She said: ''We are very close to sending out our invites. I've been very picky on how I want everything to look and feel. Eric's family alone is almost 90 people, so it'll definitely be a big event.''7
