Biel, Timberlake plan intimate wedding

Jessica Biel will marry Justin Timberlake in a "small and intimate" wedding as the actress has decided against hosting a "great big to-do".

The pop star-turned-actor proposed to his long-term girlfriend over Christmas and reports suggest they will tie the knot before the end of this year.

Biel has now revealed they won't be having a big, lavish wedding, and they will probably keep the nuptials secret.

"I do know that it's not going to be a great big to-do," she told Britain's Hello! magazine. "This will be a very private moment for us, so we're going to keep it small and intimate."

The A-Team star also admits she would like to emulate British actress Emily Blunt, who married The Office star John Krasinski at a small ceremony in Italy in 2010.

She added: "The people I'd most like us to be like are Emily Blunt and John Krasinski - it seemed like one day they were engaged and the next day they were married and nobody had known anything about it. And I did at the time think, 'Aha! That's the way to do it.'"

Biel also spoke to the magazine about her split from Timberlake last year.

The relationship came to an end in March last year but the stars continued to spend time together and the romance was back on by June, 2011.

"I needed to be alone for a while. I think that when you take the time to stand by yourself as an independent person, and you find out that you actually are capable of moving forward alone and being fine on your own, then it is a very empowering feeling to have.

"It gives you a lot of strength, a lot of confidence, too, because it means you know that ... any decision you make is an educated one, not just an emotional one. So you make your own choice about whether to step back into a relationship or whether to go in a different direction."
