Some brides –to-be obsess over their wedding décor or the cake, but for newly engaged Vanessa Minnillo it's all about the dress.

Minnillo, who got engaged to Nick Lachey in November, says her wedding gown will be especially meaningful to her "because the first time that Nick will see me come down the aisle will be in that dress."

But that doesn't mean that Minnillo, 30, and Lachey, 36, are rushing their wedding plans. In fact, "[We] haven't started," Minnillo told reporters Thursday while promoting her upcoming guest spot on 30 Rock. "When he proposed in November it was our birthdays and then the holidays, and we were away in Italy for New Year's and [then there's] also work. It's been a busy time and it's a fun time."

The two are savoring this time in their lives as husband and wife to-be. "We're enjoying being engaged," Minnillo says. "Everyone rushes to the next step and I like this step. I'm in love and we're happy, so when it comes and it happens organically I will welcome it with open arms."
