(CBS) Another royal wedding is coming up - that of Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter Zara Phillips to rugby player Mike Tindall - and the bride-to-be has reportedly chosen a designer for her gown.

The 30-year-old equestrian has selected couturier Stewart Parvin to design the wedding dress, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports.

Parvin is the queen's "favorite couturier," according to the report, and Phillips' mother, Princess Anne, is also a fan of his designs.

"They wear his ensembles for Ascot and the Queen wore a white Stewart Parvin dress for Barack Obama's state visit," says a fashion source told the paper.

"Zara doesn't want a high-fashion dress similar to Kate Middleton's Sarah Burton design [for Alexander McQueen]," the source added. "But Stewart is the youngest Royal couturier, so the dress will still be modern and chic."

Phillips and Tindall will wed on July 30 at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland. They announced their engagement in December.
