We've been eagerly waiting for Lance Bass
to dish wedding planning dirt since his romantic proposal to boyfriend Michael Turchin
in New Orleans' Jackson Square. We're happy to report, we've hit the motherlode: Bass divulged exciting details to ABC News
earlier today that a televised wedding special may be in the works.
This is a far cry from fellow 'NSYNC
alum Justin Timberlake's
hush hush approach to wedding planning. (The "Take Back the Night" singer wed love Jessica Biel in Italy
just last year in near secrecy.)
"I love a party. It's going to be nice and big and over-the-top," Bass said. "The network offered us a big wedding special. Knowing myself in the 1980s growing up a gay kid in Mississippi, I would loved to have seen something on TV I could relate to and go, 'Oh, my gosh, I could do that
Though he declined to name the network in question, he said the event will take place outdoors next fall. As for the wedding itself, Bass said that he and his fiancé plan on doing things "our own way."
"I don't know if we will even have groomsmen or bridesmaids
," he said. "Since there's no wedding dress, and half the excitement of a wedding is to see the wedding dress and what it looks like... we're wanting all of our guests to come [dressed] completely over-the-top, high fashion like you're heading to the MET Ball or the Royal Wedding."
If that's the case, we're definitely pinning our hopes on a Kardashian
- or Bachelor-style TV nuptials
! Imagine a VMA-esque 'NSYNC reunion, complete with color-coordinated metallic track pants
(hey, a girl can dream), a romantic outdoor venue
, and all-star guests. Need we say more?
Actually, we do. In addition to dishing on his wedding, Bass also told ABC News about his Love Is Changing History project, a collaboration for LGBT History Month in October, in which AT&T will donate $1 to The Trevor Project every time the website, videos or personal story submissions are shared. He also stated his relief at the demise of the federal Defense of Marriage Act
