As we know, Christina Anstead and her husband Ant were married in a super secret wedding that no one saw coming—because no one even knew they were engaged in the first place. In tonight's Christina on The Coast, we got to see exactly how it all came together in such a short amount of time.

First, Christina obviously had to tell her best friend and publicist Cassie the news of her new betrothal. The two were out to lunch when Christina said she had a "special project" she was working on that she had to show Cassie. When she handed over her phone, Cassie was in for a huge surprise—it was a photo of Christina and Ant kissing and showing off the new engagement ring around the designer's finger.

Of course, Cassie's first question to Christina was what we've all been wondering—where's the ring?!

"I can't wear it in public!" Christina explained. "It's at home hiding. I sleep in it." With a ring as gorgeous as that, I'd definitely sleep in it too.

Being the BFF that she is, Cassie agrees to plan Christina's entire secret wedding—disguised as a housewarming party for the newly engaged's new digs—in just a little over a month.

There's a ton of stuff to do to pull together a dream wedding at Christina's dream home, which is still being renovated—including finding the perfect dress. Because Christina is dead set on keeping it hush hush, she can't be seen waltzing into a bridal store without the paparazzi going into a frenzy. Luckily, Cassie was able to pull a few dresses for Christina to try on, and of course, she found the perfect one.

The secret wedding was pulled off seamlessly, and the happy couple has since been enjoying their happily ever after in their new house together.
