Her character on Revenge has singlehandedly organized dozens of high-profile events, but in real life, Ashley Madekwe could use a little help.

The 30-year-old actress, who will tie the knot with actor Iddo Goldeberg in London this June, hasn't had much time to plan her big day.

"I have the dress," she told Us Weekly at Lucky's FABB Conference in Santa Monica, Calif. Monday. "I haven't done anything other than that, but I'm thinking it will all fall into place when I get to London in a couple of weeks."

Planning a wedding thousands of miles from home has been "so difficult because of the time difference," Madekwe explained.

"There's something to be said for talking to people face to face or speaking to them on the phone, which I can't really do because I'm on working on set and they're usually sleeping when I'm eating, and vice versa," she told Us. "When I get to London I'll pick the flowers. What else do you need? Dress, food, flowers . . .cake!"

Madekwe and her actor beau invited 80 guests to partake in their big day. After the ceremony, the ABC star plans "to go to Italy for a week with my husband."

In March, Madekwe told Us she is "really" excited to become Mrs. Goldberg. "We already live together. We've been together for so long and we were friends before we were a couple. We know each other so well!"
