Chrissy Teigen is no Bridezilla.
Opening up to Us Weekly at Project Sunshine's Benefit in NYC Tuesday night, the swimsuit model--who got engaged to love of five years John Legend during a Maldives getaway over the holidays--said she isn't willing to let wedding planning take over her life.
In fact, "I feel like the anti-bride, because I watch all those shows and I hate them," she told Us. "I go out of my way to try not to be too annoying . . . my biggest goal in life is to not be annoying about being a bride."
Teigen, 26, says she'd rather focus on the fun stuff: food and fashion, stressing that her big day will be very "food-oriented"--and will involved multiple costume changes.
"I love dress shopping and I love talking about the wedding food. That's what makes me happy," Teigen revealed. "If you tell me to do a guest list, I cry. I hate it."
The 5-foot-8 beauty says she also didn't waste any time picking out her first dress for her nuptials--a "simple" but "stunning" Monique Lhuillier gown.
"I had been looking at online for so long . . . since the day I got engaged," Teigen shared. "It's so beautiful. I loved it. That was my excuse for having not waited. I don't know what part [of the wedding] it will be worn for, but it will be worn and I'm very excited."
Teigen might not have wasted any time settling on a dress, but in general, she says she and Legend, 33, aren't stressed about when they'll make it official.
"We're going to take our time with [the rest of the planning]," Teigen told Us. "We've been together for so long."
Joked the model, "Hopefully I won't hate him by then!"
