Maren Morris is a fashion icon in the world of country music, but she had a very special muse when it came to designing her wedding dress — her mother.

Morris tells People that she got her wedding dress inspiration from the short style her mom wore to her own wedding in 1989. The singer has sent the sketches of her dream gown to one of her favorite designers to make something unique to her. “She was a badass and had this short wedding dress, so I sent it to this designer that I love,” Morris says of her mom. “I was like, ‘If we can do a modern version of my mom’s wedding dress — just dreaming something up really cool, but still throwback with her vibe, I would love to make that happen.’ So I’m just waiting to get sketches back, but I know it’ll be perfect.”

The “My Church” singer and her fiancé Ryan Hurd are well into the planning process, nailing down the details of the location, DJ and decor that Morris describes as green, lush and “twinkly.” While they’re still trying to finalize the guest list, whoever is lucky enough to be in attendance is in for a truly good time.

We just want it to feel like a party. We don’t want it to feel stuffy or have this long 18-course dinner. We want it to be like us,” she describes. “There’s definitely going to be margaritas and some Motown music, and my dog will be there. It’s going to be a complete reflection of both of our styles and tastes, and I’m so excited to share it with everybody.” 

Hurd popped the question to the rising star in July of 2017. The two are set to tie the knot in spring of 2018.
