The "Nashville" star covers the April/May issue of Brides magazine, and she's opening up about her wedding plans and recent engagement to Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
While the blonde beauty reveals that Wladimir's proposal wasn't over-the-top, she says it was heartfelt.
"It was very sweet and simple and genuine," she tells the mag. "It wasn't about being overwhelmed by fireworks or a mariachi band. I think it's amazing when people do that, but I like that mine was simple and from the heart."
The 24-year-old also says that as she approaches her big day, nerves are staring to kick in.
"When eyes have been on me in the past, it's been because of an event, where people see me as a persona. For the aisle, you're the purest, most emotionally stripped down version of yourself, sharing this raw moment with the most important people in your life. It seems very overwhelming!," she explains.
But Hayden does have an idea of what she wants her wedding to looks like: "I want it to be classic, beautiful, and elegant, but I also want it to be fun!"
It definitely sounds like the actress has found the right man for her -- Panettiere says that her family totally approves of her boxer beau.
"They looove him. It must be a great feeling when you know that your child is with someone who will protect and take care of her," she says.
And when it comes to finding love, Hayden has some great advice. "You want to be with the person who makes you the best version of yourself," she tells the mag.
Well, we can't wait to see the starlet walk down the aisle -- what do you think of the gorgeous dresses she wore for the magazine's photo shoot? She'll made a beautiful bride!
