Deena Nicole Cortese is a busy lady.
In addition to preparing for the upcoming Jersey Shore reunion, which is set to air on the E! Network as a docu-series, the longtime reality star is just months away from tying the knot with boyfriend Chris Buckner.
As a new report reveals, Cortese and Buckner dated for five years before becoming engaged in November of last year.
“Planning is going awesome,” Cortese revealed to OK! Magazine on Tuesday. “I see all these brides stressing and having panic attacks. I don’t want to be them.”
According to Cortese, who tragically lost her father last summer, Buckner has been involved in supportive in the planning process for the past several months.
Cortese and Buckner are set to tie the knot on October 28, 2017 and the entire cast of the Jersey Shore is invited. That said, they won't be included in the bridal party.
“They’re not in the wedding. I didn’t have bridesmaids. It’s dramatic and everyone will hate each other.”
Instead, she said that her best friend, sister, and future sister-in-law will be here maids of honor and matron of honor, respectively.
As for her dress, Cortese admitted to choosing something out of the ordinary.
“My dress is not what I expected to get. When I tried it on, I just started crying and said, ‘This is it.’ I tried on 20 dresses and it was the second. It was what my mom wanted me to try on That type of dress fit my body the best.”
"I just want it to be happy and fun," Cortese added of her wedding.
