No country wedding for this American Idol?!
Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock were planning a HUGE earthy outdoor ceremony, but revealed Wednesday that the whole planning experience was overwhelming!
The Catch My Breath singer explains:
"We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, 'So, we change our minds and we want to elope.' We just got so overwhelmed by it – all the decisions. We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking."
Decisions are always hard, especially when some has a schedule as busy as Kelly and Brandon's:
"Then honestly the planning – I have a Christmas record coming out. I'm doing a bunch of stuff with State Farm right now. We have two kids who just started school. We're going to all these football games and soccer games and volleyball games and [Brandon]'s got one of the biggest artists [Blake Shelton] in country music. He's flying everywhere."
After the adorbz performer sent out the (above) engagement photo, she realized that everyday in love should be celebrated, and a party is totally not necessary:
"Our whole life is a celebration. That's what we kept laughing about. We don't need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, 'We would rather have an intimate moment that's special.' "
The duo does plan to have a small shindig, but they won't be the one's throwing it!
A good friend has offered to host a boozy night with buds in celebration of Kel and B!
Sounds perfect to us!
