Jennifer Hudson is keeping her wedding date a secret but the singer isn’t shy about revealing some of the details.

“We’re both very creative and kind of unique,” she tells Access Hollywood. “I don’t want to have the same exact wedding as everyone else. Lord, he might come walking down the aisle for all we know.”

The singer, who is engaged to reality TV star David Otunga, says she hasn’t picked out a wedding dress because it will be an original. 

“I’m gonna design my own dress,” she says. “Definitely classic, more traditional than anything. I want it to be nice and traditional, but very classy, very classy.”

As for whether she plans to sing at the wedding, Jennifer says it’s very likely. 

“I sang for everybody else’s wedding, I might as well sing for my own,” she jokes. “Actually, that’s how I started. I was the wedding singer, the funeral signer, sang at every church program, anything I could sing at, I sang for.”
