Chrissy Teigen is getting into the wedding spirit. With a few months to go until her fall nuptials to John Legend, the host of VH1's Model Employee got in some practice, by serving as ring bearer in a mock wedding at Campari's Annual Bartender Bash in New York.
"I'm excited. I can't wait for the ceremony. [John] and I have been working and traveling so much that we just let our wedding planner do everything," Teigen told PEOPLE on Sunday night. "We're not neurotic about it. I just want to finally see all of my friends in one area."
She added, "We don't mean to be tight-lipped, but we have to save something."

John Legend is telling all about his wedding to model Chrissy Teigen – except the date.
"It's going to be good music, good food and a good time," he said at the Yahoo! On the Road tour, where he performed in N.Y.C. Friday night.
And although they may be leaving many of the details up to the planner, the singer, 34, who will release his album Love in the Future later this year, says he does have a wedding song in mind.
"There's a song on my album that actually could be pretty good for the wedding. It's called 'All of Me' and it's inspired by Chrissy. She loved the song and cried when she heard it," he said.

Viva Las Vegas!
Chrissy Teigen, 27, and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton, 20, were joined by a slew of fellow models who traveled from Newark, N.J., to Sin City recently, and the ladies gave PEOPLE.com a behind-the-scenes look at their trip-planning.
"I just thought I'd show you what's in my purse, because it's kind of fascinating, actually," Teigen said, while pulling out several bags of hair extensions. "I have multitudes of hair."
But as John Legend's fiancée points out, the "creme de la creme" of her handbag contents were yet to come.

Primetime's newest singing competition, ABC's Duets, premiered Thursday with the show's four mentors – Clarkson", John Legend, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke – taking the stage to perform one of their own songs with each of their two protégés.
Clarkson quickly found herself the underdog. The former American Idol winner's teammates, Jordan Meredith and Jason Farol, claimed the bottom two spots based on scores from the other coaches after their renditions of Clarkson's "Stronger" and "Breaking Your Own Heart," respectively.
One of Nettles's contestants, J Rome, took the top spot after his duet with Nettles on Sugarland's "Tonight."

John Legend and hip-hop band the Roots have teamed up to record Wake Up!, a funky, old school-inspired album featuring covers of classic songs from Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and more.
"It says it all in the title," John Legend says. "It's saying we can't depend on the older generation to fix everything for us; we gotta educate ourselves, empower ourselves and use the power that we have to make the world better."
The collaboration between Legend and the Roots, who are known for their jazzy, eclectic use of live instruments, and also also serve as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, first began as an idea during the 2008 election.
