AMERICAN WEDDING star Alyson Hannigan insists her own upcoming nuptials will be a lot less traditional than her on-screen walk down the aisle.

The flame-haired actress is due to marry longterm love ALEX DENISOF later this year (03), but will keep her attire simple and the guest list short - unlike her flute-loving character in the American Pie franchise.

She says, "We're going to try to get married later this year, but it will be very small - just friends and family. It's not going to be a traditional wedding in any sense of the word.

"I'll have a wedding dress, but it won't be anything like the one I wore in the film, which was white, puffy and not functional - that's not me.

"I want simple and elegant, but still fun."
