The Stranger Things actress, 19, revealed on Today with Hoda and Jenna Friday that her future father-in-law — rock legend Jon Bon Jovi — will not be singing at her wedding to his son, Jake Bongiovi. 

“I feel like that’s asking me to go and like, do a full on play for everyone,” Brown said. “I think the man needs a break, he doesn’t stop! He’s always doing tennis or singing lessons. I think he needs a break, maybe it’s a three hour break!"

She went on to agree with hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager that allowing Bon Jovi to be a guest is the way to do, though hinted that may be hard for even him. "That would be wild. I don’t know if he’ll be able to do just that," she laughed.

The bride-to-be, who’s in the middle of planning her wedding with Bongiovi, 21, said that she hasn't been doing it all along.

“Jake is very, he’s very involved, he’s very helpful during the whole process. I’ve never felt alone in it, which is very nice. I’m always like, ‘Is this a good idea, is this a good idea?’ But ultimately, it’s just a very intimate day for the both of us and we’re both very excited.”

“I love being home with my fiancé and my family,” Brown added. “It’s really boring but chopping up the vegetables and going to take them out to my pony is the best part of my day.”

While promoting her debut novel, Nineteen Steps, on Good Morning America Thursday, Brown said the wedding planning is “such an amazing part of my life so far," adding "just being able to do it with someone makes it even better."

The two have been doing more than just wedding planning together. Earlier this month, a video on her Florence By Mills YouTube channel went viral of Jake doing her makeup.

Brown admitted on GMA that she was impressed with the final result.

"I'm so used to teaching him all things skin care, and then when I put the makeup brush in his hand I was really hesitant," she said of Bongiovi, who got engaged to the actress in April. "But I think he did a good job."

The couple, who first sparked romance rumors in June 2021, got the blessing from Jake’s rockstar dad earlier this year when they revealed their engagement news. 

"Growing together is wise," Bon Jovi, 61, said on Andy Cohen's Sirius XM show Radio Andy. "I think that all of my kids have found people that they think they can grow together with and we like them all."

"Millie is wonderful. Her whole family are great," he added. "Jake is very, very happy."
