Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Lady Antebellum's Dave Haywood.

"We will be married this year," Haywood told PEOPLE before performing at the Oreo Cookies 100th birthday celebration in Los Angeles last week. What's more, he adds: "I enjoy the wedding planning and setting up where everything is going to be."

Haywood, 29, popped the question to girlfriend Kelli Cashiola, 29, a VP of Marketing/Brand Management for Warner Music Nashville, this past December with an elaborate winter-wonderland proposal.

Haywood will be the third and final member of Lady Antebellum to tie the knot, closely following band mate Hillary Scott's surprise January wedding to the band's drummer Chris Tyrrell.



"[Dave and I] were having a conversation the other day about learning that you have someone to lean on and you can divvy up responsibilities," said band mate Charles Kelley, who married longtime girlfriend Cassie McConnell in 2009.

"I think being in the band really helped prepare all of us for [marriage] because we all have roles that we fall in to naturally," Scott added.

But just because his fellow Lady Antebellum members have more marital experience does not mean Haywood is going to blindly follow their leads.

Joked the groom-to-be: "I'm not taking their advice."
