After a couple of failed marriages under her belt, Carmen Electra feels comfortable dishing out a smart suggestion.

"My advice to anyone is to not get married in Vegas," she tells PEOPLE. "Do not get married at the drive-thru in Vegas, especially. Take your time – enjoy it!"

Electra, 36, adds: "It's important to think out marriage in general because it's a huge commitment. Besides that, I hate to say it, but it's a lot of paperwork and a lot of emotions. It can be difficult."

We're about to see a whole lot more of Carmen Electra: The model-actress is set to appear in an all-new, 8-page nude pictorial in January's Playboy, a source at the magazine tells PEOPLE.

Electra, 36, first posed for the publication in 1996 – a move that helped transform the Ohio-based girl next door, who was born Tara Leigh Patrick, into an international pin-up star.

The January issue, which marks the 55th anniversary of Playboy magazine, goes on sale Dec. 12.

Showing off her black diamond engagement ring set in white diamonds, Carmen Electra talked about her upcoming marriage to guitarist Rob Patterson last night during a visit to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

"I like this ring because it is gothic," says the actress – wearing a sparkly blue cocktail dress designed by Jenny Packham – who was dealt the first hand of blackjack ever played at the casino.

Rocker Patterson, who officially inaugurated the casino's new card games by smashing a guitar into bits as confetti exploded, proposed to Electra on her 36th birthday, April 20, at Pure Nightclub in Las Vegas.

"She's a really great girl," Patterson, 37, a former touring guitarist with the alternative rock band Korn, tells PEOPLE. "She's beautiful."

Carmen Electra is no stranger to marriage. But two failed unions – to Dennis Rodman and Dave Navarro – didn't make the actress jaded.

"I was definitely open to love again," the recently engaged Electra told PEOPLE in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday.

Love is exactly what she found with former touring Korn guitarist Rob Patterson, who popped the question in April by giving her a black diamond.

"The last couple weeks have been amazing on a lot of different levels," the Meet The Spartans star said at a junket for the film. "Rob is amazing. We were great friends and it actually turned into something much more."
