Watch: Ciara Gushes Over Engagement Ring

The big day is starting to come together for Ciara and Future.

Asked if she had started looking at wedding dressed, Ciara revealed to E! News that she hasn't gone shopping yet, but she's most definitely "already thinking" about it—and for very good reason!

"I haven't started looking yet, but we actually just talked yesterday about our date, so we know the date we want to do now and I'm excited," the bride-to-be gushed Monday night at the CFDA Fashion Fund Awards in New York.

Last time we checked in with the couple, they had not yet set a date.

But of course, their engagement got off to an excellent start when Future popped the question with a 15-carat diamond ring by Avianne & Co.

"My love—my fiancé—so funny, I'm getting used to saying that," Ciara added, correcting herself, "he actually knew the cut I liked.

"I always loved emerald-cut [diamonds], but then he also just went and took it in his hands and took his time on it and he's so sweet, 'cause he's like, 'I took my time on that.' That means a lot!" she raved about her fiancé's thoughtfulnes.

"He remembered exactly what I mentioned and then did his own thing, so I'm happy."

We're inclined to believe her. After about a year of dating, Future proposed to Ciara during her 28th birthday celebration.

"I'm very very excited! [Just] like every girl...we think about making that dress and that moment, and being with your bridesmaids," she told E! News the People's Choice Awards nominations party just last week. "I just can't wait to do everything, I'm like a little kid right now."
