As a second time bride-to-be, Valerie Bertinelli admits she doesn't have the giddy, enthusiasm that many first-time brides have.

"For me, it feels silly. I'm 50. It's not about the wedding. I just want to have a marriage," says Bertinelli, who was engaged to her longtime boyfriend, businessman Tom Vitale, last March. "We're going to get married in Italy, just the two of us and a witness."

Speaking to PEOPLE at the Jenny Craig National Conference in San Diego, Calif., on Thursday, the actress also jokes that she's not going to look like a model from the pages of Modern Bride: "I'll be wearing black!"

They are in the midst of planning their wedding, but for Valerie Bertinelli and fiancé Tom Vitale creating the perfect ceremony isn't high on their to-do list.

"We've both had good weddings [before]," Vitale, 48, told PEOPLE Monday at the New York premiere of Bertinelli's TV Land show, Hot in Cleveland, which costars Betty White and airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET. "Now we want a good marriage."

So will it be a big over-the-top wedding or a more intimate affair? "It's not about the party," Vitale says. "It's about life and the relationship. It may be small. We haven't determined the size. We're going to [get married] in the States in the Fall, and it will mean the world to us."

Having turned 50 only last month, Valerie Bertinelli is looking forward to another milestone: a wedding this fall to her boyfriend of six years, businessman Tom Vitale.

Vitale, 48, proposed on a romantic night in Florence during a recent trip to Italy. "We'd talked about getting married, but I was still shocked. It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, 'Are you kidding me?' " the actress tells AARP The Magazine in its July/August issue.

The couple met in 2004 after their previous marriages ended. On the Italy trip, the stars aligned for a proposal. "If the time wasn't right, I wouldn't have asked," Vitale says. "We're both still a little afraid of commitment, but then we were over there, and it was like our souls were calibrated."
