The secret’s out! Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s wedding is closer than we think, according to an Aug. 29 report, and the details of the big day have finally been revealed! Here’s the scoop on Gwen’s gown, the location and music for the ceremony — from the sound of things, it’s going to be the romantic celebration of the century.
Gwen Stefani, 46, and Blake Shelton, 40, know exactly what comes after love — marriage, of course! Star magazine reports in their Aug. 29 issue that Gwen has hired celeb wedding planner Jerri Woolworth, and plans to walk down the aisle with Blake this fall. “Preparations are already well under way,” a source tells the mag. “They’re planning the wedding for late October, when they’ll both have a break in their busy work schedules.” Makes sense!
They’ve been official since last autumn, and have reportedly become engaged in the past few months. “Gwen and Blake decided they didn’t need a long engagement. The truth is they are crazy in love and want to get married as soon as possible,” the insider added. Yes!!
So what’s going down at the wedding? Well, the mag reports that the nuptials will take place at Blake’s home in Nashville, TN, and Gwen will wear a relatively tame dress in accordance with her fiance’s “old-fashioned” taste. “Her wedding dress will be white and long-sleeved with lots of lace,” the source says. Sounds beautiful!
“It will be a traditional affair — Gwen has gotten back in touch with her more conservative side since she hooked up with Blake,” the insider continues. “She’s made a point of going to church recently and agrees with Blake that the ceremony should be by the book.” Ah, what we do for love!
The insider adds that Gwen purchased their wedding rings online after searching long and hard for the perfect pieces. “She had a very specific vintage style in mind and found exactly what she was looking for [online]!” You can’t say the popstar isn’t resourceful.
Finally, music will be a huge part of the wedding (no surprises there). The mag says that Blake will perform at the ceremony, and the song he plans to sing is actually part of the proposal he made to Gwen. “They were at Blake’s lakeside house in Oklahoma, just sitting outside under the stars one night. Blake was strumming on his guitar, and all of a sudden he started singing something he had written especially for Gwen,” the source tells the publication.
“It was a proposal song and caught her completely off guard. She was so overcome with emotion that she burst into tears. And of course she said yes right then and there,” the insider adds. How romantic is that?! Naturally, Gwen wants him to sing the “touching and romantic” song at their wedding. We can’t wait!
