The actress – whose fiance music producer Simone Sestito designed her diamond engagement ring – plans to work with a close friend to create her dream gown.

Mena, who announced her engagement in July, said: “I want to work with my friend Stacy, who designs Alice + Olivia, to design a dress.

“I really want it to be romantic and like a fairytale wedding. It’s all very new to me. Even though I have been down that road before, I never have done any of these preparations so there’s a lot of stuff to do.”

American Beauty star Mena – who was previously married to Robert Brinkman, a 46-year-old cinematographer – also revealed she is planning to use an upcoming trip to the Rome Film Festival to find a location for the wedding, as the couple hope to marry in Italy.

However, Mena and Simone are not believed to be planning the nuptials for any time soon.

A source close to the 29-year-old actress recently revealed: “They’re taking their time planning the wedding. They are in no rush.”
