"The wedding planning is going fantastic," the 31-year-old actress told ET during the event. "It's actually been a really fun experience. We've taken the attitude of having a healthy perspective on things because any time we get stressed, Paul’s like, 'This is not what it’s about. We're planning the best day of both of our lives, so let's take a step back.' He’s very level-headed, and then we have Mindy -- you can’t help but feel like you’re in good hands with her. I have the benefit of that."
