When Jennie Garth's mommy-friend asked if she'd go on a blind double date with her, her boyfriend and his buddy Dave Abrams, the actress thought, 'Sure, why not?' I thought, 'I'll just go for dating practice,' " Garth tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"I looked him up online, and he shared a name with a real beefcake-y male stripper, and I was like, 'Oh no!' But luckily it wasn't him."
Meanwhile, Abrams assumed he didn't really stand a chance. "I didn't think I had a shot," says Abrams, 34. "But I went."
It's a good thing, too. The couple hit it off that first night – and neither ever looked back.

Some brides prep for their wedding by getting massages and mani-pedis. Jennie Garth hangs lanterns, hand-paints signs and helps rewire outdoor chandeliers.
And that's just the tip of a gloriously jam-packed To Do list the actress, 43, – and self-professed DIY fanatic – tackled in the days leading up to her July 11 nuptials to actor Dave Abrams.
Her hard work paid off. By the time the roughly 120 guests arrived at Garth's bucolic six-acre ranch in Los Olivos, California, they were treated to a romantic and vintage-inspired wonderland: flowers freshly picked from her garden, antique doors and lace from her mother's collection hanging from wires in the open air and homemade touches throughout the rambling property.
