After a whirlwind engagement of a little over three months, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's big day is almost here.

The daughter of Donald Trump and her fiancé, the publisher of the New York Observer, will tie the knot at a private ceremony at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., on Sunday.

The bride will walk down the aisle in a Vera Wang wedding gown, inspired by Grace Kelly. The 500 guests will include Regis Philbin, who will be called on to sing a song at the reception, which was planned by Preston Bailey, who also handled Donald and Melania Trump's wedding at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla.

For the bride, who turns 28 next Friday, it's been a crazy few months of wedding planning mixed in with publicity for her new book, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.

She has kept her 400,000 Twitter followers up to speed every step of the way, beginning with the couple's July 15 engagement ("Truly the happiest day of my life!!!"). Last weekend, she tweeted a last-minute request: "Need some help picking a wedding song ... send me your thoughts!" On Oct. 22, she added, "Last dress fitting down… getting close."

Trump has kept details of the wedding quiet, but she told Brides.com, "I've always envisioned myself having a traditional and elegant wedding, even before the engagement."

She added that she can't wait for the ceremony itself. "At that point hopefully all of the anxiety will have subsided and I can just enjoy the moment," she said. She's also looking forward to "dancing like a maniac with all of my friends!"

After the nuptials, Trump and Kushner, 28, aren't planning to have little ones anytime soon. "When our time to have a family comes around, I know I will compromise," she told PEOPLE recently. "I am not there yet!"
