Cavallari tells Life & Style magazine she and the sportsman won't be rushing down the aisle - and she won't be inviting TV crews to film the nuptials.
She says, "It'll be about a year engagement and then I want a classic and traditional wedding. I can't decide whether I want a small, intimate wedding or a huge wedding - but it will absolutely not be on TV."
And the star has revealed details of the "perfect" sunset proposal to the publication, adding it took her a minute to say 'Yes' when Cutler popped the question - because she was stunned by the 5.2 carat Asscher-cut diamond engagement ring he had bought.
She explains, "I was just staring at the ring and thinking, 'Oh my God, it's absolutely beautiful'."
