Nikki Reed and ‘American Idol’s’ Paul McDonald — no ‘Twilight’ wedding

Getting married soon!

Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald surprised a number of people earlier this year by their fast engagement, but the two have taken at least a little bit of a different approach when it comes to their actual big day — mainly in that they have elected to take their time and prepare for something a little bit more private.

As for whether or not it will be anything like what we saw in “Twilight” for Edward and Bella, Reed had a rather simple response:

“They had a beautiful wedding, but Paul and I aren’t Edward and Bella, at all.”

Reed is electing to keep most information about her wedding under wraps, mainly because her “American Idol” star beau is “traditional” and wants to be surprised by her on their wedding day — rather than already knowing about the dress courtesy of the press.

The two parties are really just now starting to get to spend some significant time together — Paul was on tour with the “Idol” cast until last month, while Reed is now amping up for an extensive promotional tour of “Breaking Dawn,” which hits theaters on November 18.

Are you expecting a spectacular wedding from these two?
