Bride-to-be Ronda Rousey is planning a laid-back fiesta in the Aloha State.

The 30-year-old revealed some details of her wedding plans with fiancé Travis Browne during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan Wednesday, saying that the ceremony and reception will be inspired by – and set in – the UFC fighter’s home state.

“He’s Hawaiian so we’re gonna do kinda like a backyard, Mexican Corona party — but, like, in Hawaii,” she explained.

Ronda and Travis, 34, got engaged this past April during a romantic getaway to New Zealand. She shared the news on Instagram with a hilarious photoshopped image of the two.

“It was actually after heavy rain and we were under this waterfall,” Ronda said Wednesday of the day Browne popped the question. “Apparently he had this whole speech prepared but it just went down into bullet points in the moment.”

Continued the athlete, “So he pulls out the ring and I’m already like, ‘Uh huh’ before he even says anything. It’s like, ‘Okay, we’re in New Zealand, we’re under a waterfall, will you marry me?’ ”

The romantic moment was preceded by a scary incident, however. On the couple’s way to the airport, she said they briefly stopped by her home – where Travis planned to sneakily ask Ronda's mother for permission to propose.

“Then, right when we got to the house, we realized we were robbed and someone had been squatting in my house for like three days, sleeping in my bed,” she detailed. “Stole my Olympic ring, stole my guns, stole all my precious jewelry, every headphone in the house – credit cards.”

Luckily, Ronda said she and Travis had security cameras in place and were able to find the alleged culprits at a nearby skate park with the help of police.
