Meghan Trainor is planning to have a winter wedding.

The 24-year-old pop star got engaged to her significant other Daryl Sabara at the end of last year, and she is keen to tie the knot in a ''chilled'' ceremony in her own backyard around 12 months after he got down on one knee.

She said: ''I was thinking, my backyard's real pretty. Like, real beautiful. And I just want it be chill and with my family in the backyard so I think I'm going to do that around Christmas time because it's my favourite.

''My mom is like, 'Stop telling them.' It'll be fine mom. No one knows where I live. Maybe.''

The 'No Excuses' hitmaker admits she and Darly have adopted a more positive outlook since she shot to fame, and the couple were so pleased to be heading to New York to film the morning news programme.

Speaking on the 'Today Show' on NBC, which co-hosting the programme alongside Hoda Kotb, she added: ''I'm so happy.

''We're saying that a lot more now. Like, 'Wow, what are we doing here?' ''

Meghan recently said she wants her wedding to be a ''casual'' affair, and she is keen to put on a barbecue for all her guests.

She said: ''I think I'm just gonna be casual. I think I'm just gonna do it in my backyard. I've got a great yard and my manager, like, legally can marry people.

''Yeah, I just might have my best friend do it and we might just chill and have like a barbecue. I don't know!''

The star recently admitted she wanted to ''lock'' Daryl down into picking a date for their nuptials.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''It's that cheesy line of 'You know when you know' and that's so real because I've never had anything like this with any other human, I've never not got sick of someone. I've been with him literally every day and I'm not sick of him, and I miss him when he's not in my visual sight, it's gross.''
