Jesse Tyler Ferguson is no groom-zilla, but the Modern Family star admits plotting his nuptials with husband-to-be Justin Mikita is a daunting task. "It's been a little stressful," the redheaded actor, 37, told Us Weekly Wednesday at the Tie the Knot Spring Collection bash, held at Avenue in NYC. After dating for nearly two years, Ferguson proposed to fellow actor Mikita, 27, in Mexico back in September.

Working with a wedding planner, the twosome are looking ahead to a summertime wedding, Ferguson told Us -- based in the Big Apple. "We wanted to get married in New York, because that's where it's legal, so we want to support the state that's in support of us," the Emmy nominee explained.

The vows and bash will take place in a "beautiful loft space," he added. "It's so nice -- I can't wait to see it all done." The guest list is "around the 200 mark -- which to me seems big -- but people are telling me it's not that bad."

One wedding tradition the couple aren't partaking in: A wedding party. "We aren't doing that," he said at the TieTheKnot bash. (The future spouses co-designed a "TieTheKnot" bowtie collection, with all proceeds going towards groups focused on LGBT rights.)

"He means a lot to me," Ferguson said of his man. "So it's really special."
