Bride-to-be traffic jam!

There were three engaged stars at Tuesday night's Hollywood premiere of Something Borrowed: The flick's stars Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin, plus Kristin Cavallari, who walked the red carpet.

After about 8 months together, Chicago Bears hunk Jay Cutler proposed to the former Hills star, 24, over the Easter weekend.

"I kind of knew it was coming," Cavallari told Us Weekly Tuesday. "But I was definitely very surprised."

After being set up with Cutler, 27, via reality star and E! News host Giuiliana Rancic, Cavallari says she knew "right away" that Cutler was The One.

"I think that we both knew right away that it was very different and very special," she gushed.

Also very special: Her whopping engagement ring, which she rocked on Something Borrowed's red carpet.

One thing she's keeping private: Cutler's proposal. "I don't want to say, but it was very romantic and very sweet," she said.

The quarterback was very old-fashioned, she offered. "He went and asked my dad, which was really sweet, and my dad really appreciated that! My parents couldn't be happier. They love him and his family is excited, so it's great."

Wedding planning has barely begun, she admitted. "I've been ripping out things from magazines and I had just made a wedding binder, but that's as far as I've gotten."

The wedding could take place in Chicago. "My mom and that whole side of the family is there, and Jay obviously lives there. I think that makes the most sense."

Any dates picked out? "Because of the football season, it would have to be in the next couple months or next spring, so probably next spring."
