Nothing new here. After three years of engagement, former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe still doesn’t plan on getting married anytime soon. However, she has some dream wedding plans in mind that kind of overlap with Meghan Markle’s.

Their strange connection? Markle’s BFF Jessica Mulroney—who not only attended the royal wedding, but whose kids were in the bridal party—doubles as a bridal stylist. Bristowe recently worked with her on a photo shoot, but hopes Mulroney can style her on the actual wedding day too.

“I've been wanting to work with Jessica... I got to try on all these gorgeous wedding dresses and we had a great time,” Bristowe told Entertainment Tonight. “I loved working with her. After the photoshoot, I was like, ‘You’re good, you! You’re good!’”

In addition to having the Duchess of Sussex’s best friend style her on her wedding day, Bristowe revealed more of her wedding wishlist. While they have tossed around the idea of eloping Bristowe and her fiancé Shawn Booth are thinking Napa, California, her happy place, for their location.

“Do I even have to say [why I love coming back to Napa]?” Kaitlyn told ET while attending Sterling Vineyards RoséFest. “Wine! This stuff keeps me coming back every time. It’s honestly my happy place.”

One part of wedding planning Bristowe has figured it out, is the fashion element. She will turn to Hayley Paige to design her wedding dress. "She's a friend of mine, and she's an amazing designer," Bristowe told ET.

Paige might also get to design Bristowe’s second look dress. This bride is definitely a fan of multiple dresses and envisions a reception look in either a rosé or blush color with a funky pattern. “I might do a wedding crop top, a wedding romper, a wedding dress, keep it coming!”

As for a televised ceremony with all of Bachelor Nation getting a front row seat—that's still TBD. “It’s never been discussed [with a network], so I don’t even feel like we ever think of it as an option,” Kaitlyn said. “We’re open to it. So many people are invested in our relationship and they were there with us from the beginning, from the day we met, so I think if it would make other people happy, we would do that too, and then we can always do a little private one ourselves.”

But don't hold your breath waiting for this wedding Bachelor fans. Bristowe said it will happen “in the next 10 years.”

“We talk about it, it’s not that we don’t talk about it, we just haven’t set a date,” Kaitlyn explained. “And also, I just feel like I don’t have time to get married right now, I'm a busy woman!”

What you can look forward to is little Bristowe-Booth babies. “In the next three years, you can expect babies. That would be ideal... [Shawn] is so good with kids and even seeing how he is with our dog, I'm like, ‘You’re gonna be such a good dad! He's gonna be amazing.”
