Though Jennifer Hudson undoubtedly has access to any wedding designer she could want for her upcoming nuptials to her longtime love World Wrestling Entertainment star David Otunga (though he'll never live down that I Love New York 2 stint), the Oscar/Grammy award-winning actress is bravely choosing to go the DIY route!

"I designed my dress, but it wasn't the first time because I also designed my prom dress. I've always had a love for making things my own," Hudson tells WWD at the NYC preview of her new collection for QVC, set to launch in September.

"It has its own little show," she reveals. "With my wedding dress, I was like, 'It has to be me.' My mother used to say, 'If you want something done right, do it yourself.'"
