Jennie Garth of 90210 fame announced in April that she and actor David Abrams are engaged. She made the announcement on the heels of celebrating her 43rd birthday on April 3rd.

"Dave had been working on this for months, and really wanted to plan something special for her around her birthday and make it perfect," a source told People magazine about the marriage proposal.

During a recent interview with E!, Jennie Garth dishes on plans for her wedding, including just who will be in her wedding party.

She was asked if the children she shares with ex-husband Peter Facinelli of Twilight fame--Luca, 17, Lola, 12, and Fiona, eight--will be part of that wedding party.

"Yes, they are my wedding party. Period," came Jennie Garth's reply.

She went on to share a few--but very few--details about her dress.

"I'm working with a really amazing designer, I'm so excited," she said.

This will be the third trip down the aisle for Jennie Garth. Prior to her marriage to Peter Facinelli--which lasted for 12 years--she was married to Daniel Clark for two years. She and Peter Facinelli share custody of their three daughters.

Known for being a big do-it-yourselfer, Jennie Garth was asked if she plans to DIY her wedding.

"Yes, definitely," she replied. "I'm so excited to have a project because I finished building the house and now I need something to do so I'm excited to sort of be my own wedding coordinator—make a lot of stuff myself and hopefully it turns out good."

If you missed out on The Jennie Garth Project on HGTV, you must check out the episodes--all of which are available online. You'll see the kind of DIY work Jennie Garth is capable of completing.

How exciting for Jennie Garth that she has this wedding to plan, and that her three daughters will comprise her entire wedding party.

Don't you hope that lots of her DIY wedding projects find their way online?
