Taylor Lautner is taking wedding planning day by day.

While chatting with PEOPLE about the Clear the Shelters campaign, sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, the actor, 30, also opens up about how he and his fiancée Taylor Dome are in no rush when it comes to getting everything set for their upcoming nuptials.

“We’ve started [planning for the wedding], but we’re not rushing anything,” Lautner tells PEOPLE. “We’re still just enjoying this engagement stage.”

“It’s crazy. Like, you’ll be able to call somebody your girlfriend for a long time, and you’ll be able to call [her] your wife for a long time, but you only get to enjoy this fiancée stage for so long,” he continues. “That’s why you hear me saying, ‘Me and my fiancée.’ It’s so obnoxious.”

Adds Lautner: “I’m milking it. I’m milking it as much as I can. So we’re still enjoying this stage and we’ve started the process, but nothing is nailed down yet.”
