Niecy Nash is engaged (and there aren't enough exclamation points to do it all justice!)

September 8, 2010 | 12:33 pm

Niecy-nash Niecy Nash got engaged to beau Jay Tucker on Saturday night, a year to the day after the two were introduced at a Labor Day weekend barbecue — and boy is this self-labeled "crazy bride" excited!

"I am so grateful that God would be kind enough to love me through this man," she said Wednesday on her website. "If you are waiting on your gift — prepare! Whatever you believe, can manifest in your life! Get Ready!!!!

The "Dancing With the Stars" contestant and former "Clean House" host described the proposal — dessert, a candle and his-and-hers wishes were involved — and solicited wedding planning advice ahead of the May 2011 date.

"I got married the first time 20 years ago, and my ex-husband planned everything because I had never been to a wedding!!! I know. Crazy. Right?!"

Of Tucker, Nash said, "My guy is amazing! Not a perfect man, but definitely perfect for me."

Any advice for the bride-to-be?
