In the sweetest of news, wildlife warrior Bindi Irwin has found her wedding dress!
Ahead of her nuptials to fiancé, Chandler Powell, the 21-year-old has shared a gorgeous Instagram post with a very exciting sneak peek of the dress she has chosen.
Captioning the post, Bindi simply wrote: "I said yes to the dress 💍"
Showing off the bottom of the sleeve on her left arm, the dress has a stunning lace detail - which leads us to believe she is going for a vintage-style inspired look.
Taken in a wedding dress boutique, the photo shows a myriad of other wedding dresses in the background, while her perfect nude manicure shows off that incredible engagement ring that Chandler gave to her.
In a Woman's Day exclusive, shortly after the engagement, it was revealed that ever since Bindi was a little girl, she had pored over her parents' wedding pictures.
An insider predicted, "She'll definitely want to wear her mum's gown in some way, even if she just incorporates the lace detail and makes it her own."

Well wishers flocked to the post with brother, Robert Irwin, leading the charge with a "😱" emoji.
Chandler, Bindi's groom-to-be, also commented on the post with a swoon-worthy: "I can't wait❤️❤️❤️" followed by: "You're going to be so beautiful❤️"
Within two hours of posting the picture, 211k people had flocked to the post with excitement!

On Bindi's 21st birthday back in July, the couple took to Instagram to reveal the happy news that they were engaged.
"On my birthday I said 'yes' and 'forever' to the love of my life," the daughter of the late Steve Irwin began in the touching post.
"Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness. I'm so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here's to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love. — Now let's get married already!"

Soon after the highly anticipated proposal, all eyes were on the stunning ring that Chandler, 22, had given to his bride-to-be. And Bindi was only too happy to provide the answers about the impressive design, which, in typical environmentalist fashion, was made using laboratory-created diamonds rather than mined ones.
"For those wondering about my ring, I'm so happy to share," she wrote. "My ring features a lab-grown diamond and is made with rose gold recycled metal.
"Chandler was incredibly thoughtful when he chose it. The ring captures the essence of who I am (with its vintage flare) and our life together, with the twisted band and scattered diamonds."

Bindi and Chandler are clearly made for each other, frequently sharing adorable loved-up couple snaps on their social media pages.
Bindi says the professional wakeboarder is definitely "The One" and someone she hopes to spend the rest of her life with.
"I believe there's always someone for everyone and when you find that one, as we have found each other, it's a real blessing and a privilege," Bindi told The Australian Women's Weekly in 2017.
