No bridezilla here. Jamie Chung says fiancé Bryan Greenberg is better at calling the shots when it comes to their upcoming nuptials.
"We're equally excited," the Believe
star tells PEOPLE.
The former How to Make It in America
and One Tree Hill
actor, 35, surprised Chung
, 30, by popping the question
in her native San Francisco over the holidays, and, since then, the two have been in full-fledged planning mode.
"Actually, he's better at planning parties than I am," admits Chung – though she hasn't relinquished control altogether.
"He wants a big blow out and I want to keep it intimate, so there's certainly things we need to work out." But what's wedding planning without a guest list debate?
One thing she is completely in control of – the dress! The PEOPLE StyleWatch Celeb Style Council
member has an eye for fashion, and for her own wedding, she's eyeing one designer in particular.
"Monique Lhuillier is a designer I lust for," Chung says. "I saw her Fall 2014 runway show
and it was literally like an opera. I would love to wear one of her dresses!"
The couple haven't yet set a date, but for now Chung is busy shooting her new NBC thriller Believe
, which airs Sunday at 9 p.m. "I'm so excited to work with J.J. Abrams
. Every episode is a mystery," says Chung.
And despite all the time she and Greenberg spend together, there's one
activity they still do solo. "He hates working out with me," says Chung with a laugh. "Bryan says, 'It's so cheesy,' so we're not that couple."
