The couple are “praying that COVID-19 is under control” by then, as they want to be able to have her family and friends witness their special day.
Nikki added: "We just want people to come together for an amazing weekend of fun, festivities, family, good friends, love and light.
“I would love November. The end of November would be my goal. Wouldn't that be beautiful? And I've always wanted a wedding like that, like that time of year and that look.”
The wedding news comes as Nikki, 37, also revealed she and her fiancé - with who she has four-month-old son Matteo - are “in heaven” after they recently completed their move to Napa, California.
Speaking to her twin sister Brie Bella on their ‘The Bellas Podcast’, she said: “[We] are now officially Napa residents. And I have to say, we both have been just in heaven. We’ve driven around, we've done a lot of walking and both Artem and I are like, 'This is home.’ We're just on cloud nine.”
Meanwhile, Nikki had previously confessed she felt particularly lonely after Artem headed to Los Angeles for work, leaving her with Matteo in Phoenix, Arizona.
She explained: "I didn’t realise at week seven, you kind of come out of your baby blues and … go two different paths. You go the path of being healthy or you go down the path of being depressed, and that depression path can be a really dark, deep hole. I was starting to feel invisible … It just started to build up. Being alone with Matteo and just feeling lonely and not loved and invisible ...
"I just told him, like, ‘I need more attention from you,’ and that is something we’ve worked on, and that’s gotten better. Artem and I have great communication, but it’s been lacking, but that’s something that we’ve been so strong about in our relationship [in the past]."
