Now that Ciara has welcomed her son Future Zahir, wedding planning is in full swing!

The singer graces the cover of the August/September issue of Brides, where she talks about her upcoming nuptials with fiance Future

"Indoors and black tie," she says of her vision for the big day. "For the palette, I’m not into loud colors. I like black and white, classic and clean."

The new mom, who looks radiant in a series of gorgeous wedding gowns in the elegant photo spread, also has her bridesmaids’ dresses figured out. "There will be five or six and two matrons of honor [including La La Anthony]. They’ll all wear the same color, but in different styles to suit their personalities. I want my ladies to look amazing!"

Ciara's guests also will be dancing to some memorable music. "A few of our friends will sing, and we’ll have a great DJ—good old soul mixed with new stuff. You want people to say, ‘This is my jam!'" 

And while she’s very excited for the wedding, the 28-year-old star says she really can’t wait for married life.

"Raising a baby together, traveling around the world, and creating new moments," she says of what she’s most looking forward to. "I love that I won’t think twice about what I’m doing in life, because I know I’m doing it all for the person I love most. And I know he’s doing the same in return."
