It's a date.

Playboy emperor Hugh Hefner, 84, and fiance Crystal Harris, 24, will tie the knot at the Playboy Mansion on June 18, a rep told both Us Magazine and People.

"It will be intimate with a close number of friends here at the mansion," Hefner said of the ceremony,  Us Magazine reports about the marriage ceremony. "No big blowout affair. Something very personal." Reportedly, the mansion will host less than 300 guests.

 In addition to picking invitees, the Playmate has been preparing for the nuptials by shopping for cakes and dresses, including trying on two dresses by designer Romona Keveza. A New Yorker reporter who followed Harris to the boutique said she particularly like a strapless blush pink gown.

Around the time of time of the wedding, Playboy magazine will publish a photo special of the former Miss December.

"It's kind of just a romantic, roaming-around-the-mansion type thing," Harris told The New Yorker about the spread.

Hefner announced the engagement via Twitter in December, first hinting that he had the young blond "a ring" on Christmas and later confirming he had proposed.

A playmate who definitely won't be at the mansion for the big day is Hefner's ex-girlfriend, Holly Madison. She told PopEater's Rob Shuter that if she was on the guest list, she would skip the event.

"I feel like the attention should be on them," Madison told Shuter. "It shouldn't be about ex-girlfriends showing up and what are their reactions and stuff like that. I think it should be about them.
