Chris O'Dowd's fiancee, Dawn Porter, has revealed that thier wedding won't be anything like the one in the hit movie Bridesmaids.

The 32-year-old actor popped the question to his long-term girlfriend Dawn Porter over the festive season and the presenter said she wants her day to be the completely different to what happened in the award winning comedy – so much so that she isn’t planning on having any bridesmaids.

She said: "I don't think I'll have bridesmaids at my wedding, not as such. I can't say that I've ever been massively into weddings, to be honest. I don't think that our wedding will be anything like the Bridesmaids wedding, that's for sure. I'm not a very traditional bride."

Dawn was shocked when Chris popped the question while the couple holidayed over the festive season but she doesn't want a long engagement and the couple will wed later this year.

She said: "It was a shock to get proposed to; I wasn't expecting it at all. I'm still just coming down to earth, really. I wasn't expecting a marriage to be on the cards for this year. I don't know what I want to do for the wedding yet exactly, but I know it won't be a long engagement. It will happen this year, it will definitely happen at some point this year."
