Henson confirmed last month that she and her ex-NFL player beau would be tying the knot on April 4, 2020, and revealed that Vera Wang would be designing the dress.

NO BRIDAL PARTY

"I trust Vera! That’s why I had her make the dress," she said. "I don’t have to lose sleep. I know she’s going to make me look beautiful."

The "Hidden Figures" star has also made it clear that she’s not looking to have a bridal party or any other extras on the day she becomes Mrs. Hayden.

"I told my wedding planner make it pretty, fun, make sure the food is good and a bomb deejay. No bridal party. I’m not a bridezilla. Please, I just want to say my vows in front of people I love, eat good food and have fun. That’s it!"

FIRST HINT

Henson first gave fans a hint of her much-anticipated wedding day in August. Alongside pictures of herself and Hayden cuddled up on a yacht, she added the hashtag: "#4/4/20"

Henson and Hayden got engaged last year, with the athlete proposing on Mother’s day. "I said yes y’all!!!" the actress gushed alongside a photo of her ring.

"He started with the Cartier love bracelet, BUT that was my #Mothersday gift, and then he dropped to his knee, and I almost passed out!!!" Henson further explained before adding that she was "sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!!"

Henson has kids from a previous relationship while Henson also has a 25-year-old son, Marcel, with her late high-school sweetheart.
