Despite somehow losing her $2 million, 20-carat ring at a nightclub, hotel heiress Paris Hilton's engagement seems to be off to a stellar start. Hilton got engaged to boyfriend Chris Zylka in January, and the eager bride-to-be has since graced us with some over-the-top predictions about how she wants the biggest day of her life to go down. While only time will tell if she'll actually follow through with her plan to have multiple weddings around the world (would you expect anything less?), Hilton has one planning criteria crossed off the list—the venue.

Fittingly enough, it also holds special family significance.

The former The Simple Life star's mother, Kathy, confessed Paris's venue of choice to PEOPLE at the CASA of Los Angeles’ 2018 Evening to Foster Dreams Gala event, and it seems to have her stamp of approval. "I will say she is getting married at our church where her father and I were married—the Good Shepherd Church—so it’s very special," said Kathy. "Beautiful, beautiful. It is our family [church]. My mother used to go every morning at six. My father-in-law would go every morning at six. So it’s very meaningful." Like mother, like daughter!

Paris also dished at the event on the status of her wedding plans. "[I’ve been] very busy, but it’s exciting and I can’t wait. It’s going to be magic!" she said. If her glacial-sized sparkler is any indication of what to expect for her upcoming nuptials, we might see the likes of a soireé that could rival even the royal wedding.

Further keeping her family close to heart, Paris's one-year-old niece will most likely land a spot in the wedding. "I think Lily-Grace definitely will be [a flower girl]," Nicky Hilton Rothschild, Paris's younger sis, told PEOPLE. Naturally, her fur babies will also have a role in her nuptials.

Paris and her beau have yet to announce a wedding date, but she already has her heart set on a specific dress style—or styles, for that matter. In true Paris fashion, the socialite/business woman/singer/former reality TV star revealed in February that just one wedding look won't cut it, and she may even sport three different dresses over the course of her wedding day. More recently, the princess-obsessed billionaire confessed she wants her gown to look like something straight out of a Disney fairytale.

No matter what she decides to sport down the aisle, it's guaranteed to be "hot."
