Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell have spilled more details about their upcoming wedding!
The couple, who have been engaged since 2014, have chosen Robbie‘s cousin, Stephen‘s daughter, Mavi, as their flower girl!
“She’s just the most perfect little human,” Italia, 28, shared with ET.
She went on, revealing more details and why they’ve been waiting until this year: “The only reason we waited was because we wanted the date to fall on two special numbers. I’ve really just been putting everything off because I’m terrified of all of the decisions. I want everything.”
Robbie and Italia will say “I Do” later this year in Los Angeles.
“[It'll be] classic and elegant — I mean, I hope,” she added. “As classy and elegant as you can get when there are burgers or pizza [being served] — or maybe both.”
Knowing Italia, there better be pizza there!
