Bindi Irwin reached a big milestone in her wedding planning on Monday – finding her dream wedding dress. While traditionally the bride will keep her gown a secret until she walks down the aisle, the 21-year-old couldn't resist sharing a sneak peek at her chosen wedding dress on Instagram, much to the delight of her fiancé Chandler Powell.

"I said yes to the dress," Bindi captioned a photo taken in a bridal shop, showing that she has chosen a long-sleeved lace wedding dress. The snap only showed the cuffs of the wedding dress, but her husband-to-be already can't wait to see more. "I can't wait," he commented, adding: "You're going to be so beautiful."

Eagle-eyed fans have questioned whether Bindi's caption and the appearance of the shop in the background is a hint that she will appear on a future episode of Say Yes to the Dress, which is filmed in Kleinfeld Bridal in New York. The post also revealed another insight about her wedding day – Bindi will be walked down the aisle by her younger brother Robert.
