Ciara is too excited to sleep!
That’s because sources say the singer will be tying the knot with Russell Wilson today, July 6, in a super secret ceremony in England!
An insider told E! News that the gorgeous gal has been a busy bee prepping for her nuptials with the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, and that she can’t wait to become Mrs. Wilson. The source said:
“Ciara has been getting ready all morning. She has all of her bridesmaids helping her. It was hard for her to sleep last night. She is so nervous but so excited for today.”
But there is one bridesmaid that isn’t able to help out on the Goodies performer’s big day.
Serena Williams was asked to be part of the hot momma’s bridal party, but sadly had to back out of her wedding obligations because of the Wimbledon semi-finals.
An insider explained:
“Serena really wanted to be part of Ciara’s bridal party when she asked her a while back, but she knew work may conflict.”
But, even though the tennis star couldn’t be there in person, she’s still there for her bestie bride, courtesy of FaceTime! The confidante confessed:
“Ciara was understanding and knows Serena would be there if she could. They have spoken today and have FaceTimed each other, so it’s like Serena is in the room with all the girls.”
Awwwww! Well, at least Miz Williams is still included!
And as for the 30-year-old’s preparations, a source says her makeup will be “golden” but “not that dramatic.” Meanwhile, her luscious locks will have a “very romantic” feel.
On Tuesday, the cute couple held a rehearsal dinner before their fairytale wedding, and an insider exclaims it was absolutely amazing:
“The rehearsal dinner was beautiful. Ciara and Russell couldn’t keep their hands off of each other. The love was strong in the room. Russell and Ciara said a few words to their guest thanking them for coming to Liverpool for this special occasion. Kelly [Rowland] and Lala [Vasquez] were helping Ciara before hand get ready and haven’t left her side.”
It also turns out the precious pair kept it traditional afterwards, because they didn’t sleep in the same room!
As far as the ceremony itself, one source tells TMZ that Ciara and the sports star will be exchanging vows at an English castle, in front of 100 of their loved ones!
Apparently, the guests won’t be allowed to bring their phones to the wedding, since the lovebirds don’t want anyone leaking anything from their special day!
The whole thing is reportedly so secret that attendees will meet at a specific location, and will be transported to the venue from there!
These two really are keeping their magical moment under wraps!
