Considering that she didn’t have the time to participate in the planning of her first wedding, you’d think that Gabrielle Union would jump at the opportunity to plan the wedding of her dreams the second time around. But according to the “Being Mary Jane” actress, her fiancé, Dwyane Wade, is the one having all of the fun planning their wedding.

“I’m out doing wine tastings, secretly this is like his princess moment he has waited for for a long time, he’s been hoarding bridal magazines, he’s very ready,” she joked during an appearance on “The Ellen Show.”

The 41-year-old bride-to-be adds that her Miami Heat-playing boo is involved in the tiniest details of what their special day will look like.

“He’s into aspects I didn’t even know went into wedding planning. He is on. To have a centerpiece, to not have a centerpiece—he has very strong opinions. [He says] no centerpieces. Who cares? Um, he does! He’s very particular about the music and the guest list.”

She went on to reiterate that not many people will be invited to the wedding.

“I think people are thinking [the guest list] is a lot bigger than it is. They’ll find out when [they’re not invited].”

Ellen also probed about the couple’s 9-year age difference, which Gabby says is most prevalent during bedtime and when it comes to their musical preferences.

“The biggest is like for music. Like I want the O’Jays to play at our wedding. He wants Young Jeezy. You know, I’m like, ‘Ooh, Patti Labelle,’and he’s like, ‘Ariana Grande.’ It’s night and day.”

“If we’re watching ‘Nashville,’ which is one of our favorite shows, I might drift off. That’s one of the downsides of dating an older gal—we drift off.”

While she’s speaking a little more freely about their wedding plans, she remains tight lipped about the actual wedding date.

    Sing all the praises about that fool that you want but 1) He had a baby on you 2) He hit another woman RAW AND HAD A BABY ON YOU 3) He could pay for a million dollar wedding and honeymoon and buy you the most expensive wedding dress but HE HAD A BABY ON YOU!! No matter what you say and do and no matter how long and hard you smile like everything is all good all the time and no matter how much you say you love him, HE HAD A BABY ON YOU.

      LOL, ugh the reminders. You are hilar. She is gonna be so miserable if she isn’t already. Gabby stays trying to prove something

    • bkabbagej

      Not only did he have a baby on her but she better look a little farther back in his life, because “when someone shows you who they are you better believe them (the first time). Here’s a man that when he had no where to go and no one to turn to, his first wife and her family was there for him but after he got his life together, earned millions and his own mother got sober she/they became so terrible she wasn’t even good enough to raise their children. But Gabby thinks she different (1 strike with this child), just wait there’s more to be revealed…I feel sorry for her.

    Idk know why but that sounded fake. Its like she was trying to be funny, and I did not sense romance at all, maybe some cool times but not romance.

    Also, is it just me, or are “night and day” music preferences not good? Im not a music lover, but I always thought the type of music a person likes speaks to their soul or the type of person they are. Its okay to have overlapping or slightly different music preferences, but Patti Labelle and Ariana Grande. He might be too young for you.
