Nikki Bella’s only been engaged for a few weeks, but she’s already got a lot of ideas for her upcoming wedding to John Cena.
ET’s Jennifer Peros caught up with the Total Divas star at the Romona Keveza bridal show in New York City on Thursday, where she opened up about her big day — and whether or not she and Cena will tie the knot on camera.
“You know, I feel like we’ve brought everyone on this journey,” Bella said, keeping the door open to a televised wedding.
Though cameras are still up in the air, the WWE star has other details of her wedding day down.
“Oh, I have [been waiting a long time for this day],” she shared.
“I want like, [a] medium [wedding]. I envision, like, a 150 people, ’cause I still want to keep it very private and intimate, and my side of the family makes it like 150,” she revealed. “I want black tie. I just love the elegance of black tie, and depending on what season we get married, [there] will be, like, florals. Like, I’m going to have a lot of florals, so I don’t know how much they’ll cost, but I hear they cost a lot. But I don’t care. I want it to be drenched with flowers.”
According to Bella, having bridesmaids was actually Cena’s idea.
“This is what I was telling John, I’m like, ‘John, am I too old for bridesmaids?” and he’s like, ‘No,’ she recalled. “I mean, I’m 33, but I was like, ‘I don’t know if this is weird or not. Do I just have my cousin and my sister?'”
“We’ve always had a pact since we were little girls [that] we [would be] were each other’s maid of honors, and so, in her wedding and Brie’s wedding, we were both made of honors,” she explained. “So, for sure, I [will] have them two, and now I’m just debating if I add to that or not.”
As for the honeymoon, Cena’s got a big say in that as well — mostly because of his busy schedule.
“I tried to talk to him slowly. It’s been crazy the past few weeks since getting engaged. I know I want to take my time, like, at least maybe do a year out. We’re still trying to plan the date,” Bella said. “It’s hard with our schedules, ’cause I want John and I to be able to enjoy it for a week.”
“I don’t want us to be like, ‘Oh, gonna fly in and fly right out.’ I don’t want it to be like that, so we’re trying to right now figure out, ‘OK, when can we both be together for a week or two?’ and he’s actually agreed to take me on a honeymoon,” she continued. “That was like a no for awhile, and nowhere like four hours on a plane because if he was needed for work, he had to be on a nonstop flight. He’s agreed to take me on a honeymoon.”
“I’ve been Googling, like, top honeymoon spots,” Bella confessed. “I’m like, ‘Hmm, where do I want to go now that he’ll go past four hours on a plane?”
ET caught up with Cena at CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this month, where he opened up about his busy schedule, and his upcoming 40th birthday.
“I really am fortunate that I get a lot of opportunities. I have a really good perspective of the pendulum swings both ways. Things are swinging really good now… who knows?” he said. “I make a living with WWE, so everyone sees me in the ring, but there is a lot more to me than that.”
“I’m going to turn 40, so I’m still going like I’m 20,” he added of his big birthday on Sunday. “I would really like to see my lady on that day, so hopefully she’ll come in and say hello.”
