The 'Total Divas' star has hinted her wedding to John Cena could be a little while off yet as she is keen to "enjoy being a fiancée" for as long as she can.

She said: "[Wedding planning is] going amazing. I've set a date, I found the dress, and now I have to do all the in between. Once I got engaged, I started to realise, like, 'Oh, I'll be married forever, so I want a long engagement. And I just want to enjoy being a fiancée. I want to enjoy the wedding planning process ... I know I'm not going to get cold feet, so I just really want to enjoy it."

And the 33-year-old professional wrestler isn't fussed if things do go wrong on the big day because she is just happy to be marrying the "man of her dreams".

She added to Entertainment Tonight: "I think so many brides will let the smallest things bother them, and it's like, 'Oh wow, you're marrying the man of your dreams, everyone's happy, having fun, just go with it.' Something will mess up. Just do what you want."

Meanwhile, John previously revealed the couple are keen to marry in 2018.

Asked if they're going to take it slow, he said: "The speed of everything is directly dependent on Nicole. I'm one of those guys where it took me five years to get down on one knee, so I'm ready to go, but I also know there's a lot into planning that day and since it's taken so long, it should be absolutely everything that both of us want.

"We are both super, super busy and it just has to be right. I really, really want to say I hope it's gonna be next year sometime, but also I want to do it when it's right for Nicole and she can get the most out of it as well."
