"We just started talking about it," Smirnoff, 32, told Us at Tuesday's Volkswagon EOS launch party in Santa Monica, Calif. "But I have my [DWTS] season and Brad has his baseball season…But we're definitely looking around this time next year. November or October."

Nothing's set in stone yet, though. "We are still figuring out when and where and how big or small," she said. "Our guest list is already growing!"

The star's not sweating the small stuff about the bash. "I believe a wedding is a celebration of a future together," she gushed. "It doesn't matter how it's going to be. Whatever we decide it'll be great."

After dating for over a year, Penny popped the question in October following a DWTS taping. Smirnoff's new, $95,000 rock sparkler is an estimated 4.5 carat princess cut, center stone diamond set on a platinum band that includes smaller channel-set princess cut diamonds.

"I'm such a dork," Smirnoff told Us of the ring. "I keep looking at it. I love it!"
