Before walking down the aisle with fiancé and baby daddy FutureCiara got in some wedding practice as Brides magazine's August/September cover girl.

The 28-year-old, who gave birth to her first child in May (also named Future), wore a simple white Reem Acra gown for the cover shoot, but revealed that for her own bridal gown she’s planning to do "elegance with a little edge."

Considering her recent reinvention from struggling R&B singer to stylish fashionista, we’re not surprised by her edgy wedding aspirations one bit.
