New mum Ciara has given fans a sneak peek at what she may look like on her wedding day by posing in various designer gowns for America's Brides magazine.
The Goodies hitmaker, who is engaged to wed rapper Future, features on the cover of the new August/September (14) issue wearing an embroidered Chantilly lace Reem Acra gown with sheer sleeves, while she also plays dress up in other shots by trying on designs from coveted fashion gurus Tara LaTour and Mark Zunzino.
In the accompanying article, the singer admits her nuptials will be "indoors and black tie", although she has yet to reveal which designer she has chosen for her big day. However, she has clear ideas for the colour palette, insisting, "I'm not into loud colours. I like black and white, classic and clean."
She has also shared details about her bridal party, revealing her close friend, TV personality LaLa Anthony, will be a matron of honour and adding, "There will be five or six (bridesmaids) and two matrons of honour. They'll all wear the same colour, but in different styles to suit their personalities. I want my ladies to look amazing!"
And Ciara wants to make sure guests will dance the night away by recruiting some of her famous pals to perform. She adds, "A few of our friends will sing. We'll have a great DJ - good old soul mixed with new stuff. You want people to say, 'This is my jam!'"
Ciara and Future, who welcomed baby Future Zahir in May (14), became engaged in October (13) and are expected to tie the knot in the coming months.
