Lea Michele and her fiancé, Zandy Reich, might have gotten engaged just a few weeks ago, but that hasn't stopped the actress from starting to plan her wedding. The former Glee star told People that she and Reich, the president of the clothing company AYR, are crossing a few things off their to-do list each day.

 

"I'm definitely thinking about it!" she said, when asked if she'd started preparing. "I'm a busy person and I feel like you have to make it a priority because if you don't, there's always stuff that's going to come and get in the way and take your time and attention. I try to make sure I try to carve out a little bit of time every day to just chip away at some planning."

Michele also opened up about Reich's unexpected proposal, which took place in the Hamptons. "I was surprised. I think the first thing I said to him was, 'Stop joking around!' So I was super surprised," she continued. "Everyone said, 'Try to be present because it'll happen so quickly.' Which I didn't listen to at all and blacked out and I barely remember. We both blacked out and were like, 'What? Did we say yes? Is this happening?'"

 

She might not remember much, but the actress absolutely did say yes—her four-carat engagement ring, which Reich (with the help of Leor Yerushalmi and The Jewelers of Las Vegas) designed himself, is evidence of that. As for when she knew that her fiancé was the person she wanted to spend forever with? "I think when I realized my father potentially liked him more than me," she said. "I really think that's when I realized he was the one!"
