“At the end of the day, he knows ‘happy wife, happy life!’ ” the actress, 26, told PEOPLE. “So, he’s kind of like, ‘Whatever you want, babe!’ ”
Fortunately for Rivera, her fianc é, 25, is playing an active role in planning their big day.
“He’s so involved,” Rivera added while attending costar Lea Michele’s Chrysalis Shopping Event at Switch Boutique in Beverly Hills. “We definitely bounce things off of each other [and] we’re always on the same page about everything, which is probably why we’re getting married.”
As for if she’s found her dream gown, Rivera admits she’s still on the hunt.
“It’s going really well,” Rivera said optimistically. “It’s fun. It’s obviously something that I’ve never done before, but it’s so fun. It’s that Cinderella, Princess moment, and I went around with my friends, my mom, and it just felt amazing to try on all of those gowns.”
But one thing that’s not yet slated for discussion at this point is planning for a family.
“We’ll see. Whatever happens will happen. Right now we’re just so in love and really looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together,” she said.
