The singer-turned-designer says she’ll be part of creating her own gown — but will we ever get to see her wedding dress?

Jessica Simpson says she hasn’t set a date for her wedding to former NFL player Eric Johnson — and a secret ceremony isn’t out of the question!

Eric proposed to her in November but they are in no rush to walk down the aisle, Jessica tells Women’s Wear Daily.

“We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time,” she says.

You might remember that at Jessica’s lavish wedding to Nick Lachey in 2002, she wore a custom-made Vera Wang gown — but that was in her pre-designer days. Now, she says, “I will be part of designing my own wedding gown. We might elope if it gets to that point.”

“But not without telling your mom!” says mother-of-the bride Tina, co-creative director of Jessica’s fashion line.

Eloping might be a good option for the couple — Jessica has enough planning to do with her billion-dollar fashion empire. This year, she will bring in more than $250 million from shoes alone!
