Knowing Lauren Conrad, her wedding to William Tell will be perfectly planned. The former Hills star turned lifestyle blogger, author and designer has wasted no time plotting dates and mulling over color schemes for her upcoming nuptials, but she's not in a rush to walk down the aisle. 

"She wants to take her time and enjoy the process," a friend tells Us Weekly. Adds another pal: "Lauren would like to get married next year, possible in the early fall." 

The Laguna Beach alum's boyfriend of nearly two years, University of Southern California law student Tell, 33, proposed on bended knee Oct. 12.

Deciding between a band and a DJ will be Tell's territory. The former guitarist and backing vocalist for the group Something Corporate, who graduates from USC in May, "will have a lot to do with the music," says a Conrad source. The fashion mogul welcomes her man's input. "She wants Will to share his opinions," says the friend. "She's not going to be a bridezilla!"

But Conrad has started searching through bridal magazines to find inspiration. "She's always getting little ideas here and there," says a friend. (No doubt she picked up a few tips when guest-editing the fall 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings earlier this year.)

One thing that most likely won't make the cut on Conrad's wedding planning list? A televised ceremony! After exiting MTV's Hills, Conrad told Us, "everything is healthier without cameras around," and she swore off doing any reality TV "involving my personal life."
