If we weren't already excitedly anticipating the upcoming nupitals between Ciara and Russell Wilson (don't worry, we were...), we definitely are now. After the Seattle Seahawks quarterback popped the question to the sultry singer last month, we've been patiently — okay, maybe not so patiently — waiting to see how their big day will start to shape up. Well, the wait is over! The engaged duo just gave us a bridal preview after teasing us with photos of themselves attending a friend's wedding, looking like a picture-perfect bride and groom!

We've all seen Ciara in a wedding dress before (she was a former BRIDES covergirl, after all!) and we know the girl glows all decked out in lace and tulle. So after Ciara and Wilson shared their engagement news in a selfie-style "She said yes!" video back in March, we've been aching to see the singer back in bridalwear. That day came sooner than we thought when the couple posted a few formally-dressed Instagram videos over the weekend. "We're getting eloped!" the football star blurted out to the camera, dressed to the nines in a sleek wedding tux.

Luckily, it was just a fake-out, as the to-be-wed pair were actually headed to a friend's big day. But Russell did manage to get us going for a second with his elopement joke! (If they were hopping onto the secret celebrity wedding bandwagon, we'd never be able to forgive them...) But once our heart rates returned to normal, we couldn't help but get excited over their flawless wedding wear. Wilson's dashing tux and Ciara's long wedding-ready locks and bridal beauty look are just as fitting for a walk down the aisle, as they were for witnessing someone else's "I do's."

Let's just hope the next "I do's" said are theirs!

Wedding Time!
