When it comes to weddings, The Bachelorette's happily engaged couple DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak are thinking small.

"We've gone from about 400 , and we're breaking it down," DeAnna Pappas told PEOPLE at Saturday's Los Angeles Confidential pre-Emmy party in Hollywood. "I think we want to enjoy ourselves and our day versus having to talk to a bunch of all day long. So, we're dwindling it down."

With a wedding date set for May 9, 2009, the couple says they are at square one with planning. "I don't know how plan a wedding," Pappas, 26, said. "I know what color I want my dresses to be, and bridesmaids' dresses. He wants a cheesecake. And that's about as far as we've gotten." "Our relationship obviously is our main focus, and then as well as the wedding on top of that," Csincsak, 26, told PEOPLE. "It's not this huge thing everyday. We're both so busy all the time. We don't have time right now to plan a wedding, and we're planning a wedding, which is crazy."

As for Bachelor stars on the wedding invitee list, you can count ex-Bachelorette Trista Rehn and host Chris Harrison among them.

"I'm friends with a lot of the guys from the same season I was on, Jason being one of them," said Csincsak, who led his fiance around Saturday's party by the hand. "Chris Harrison is a great guy. Trista and Ryan Sutter have been super-influential to us. We're psyched to have all of them there." --Nicholas White
