American Idol season 4 winner Carrie Underwood is busy planning her upcoming nuptials to professional hockey player, Mike Fisher. The pair became engaged in December 2009 when he popped the question withÂ a flawless yellow diamond engagement ring, estimated to be worth around $150,000. The two lovebirds are working out the specifics of their big day and Life & Style magazine got all the romantic details…
Although the pair have yet to set a date for the big day (she says, “we’re kind of bouncing a few around”), the American Idol star and her athlete beau seem to have nailed down a few of the major details. Fisher claims, “It’s going to be a good size wedding with plenty of good food and an open bar.Â But nothing too overblown. It’s still in the planning stages, so a lot of the details haven’t been finalized.”
One detail that’s taking precedence in the bride’s mind? The dress! The American Idol alum says, “I want it to be pretty traditional. I think I want flowers on it — not real flowers.” Underwood says, “[The designer will] probably be someone I’ve worked with before,” but no one has been hired for the job just yet. That doesn’t mean there aren’t designers lining up for the opportunity to dress the star on her big day!
Roberto de Villacis who has designed red carpet and music video looks for Carrie Underwood in the past has ideas of what the gown should look like. “Carrie’s sweet, feminine, romantic. I’d propose a glamorous Southern-belle gown in French Chantilly lace with a floral pattern. She’s petite, so the best silhouette would be a long and lean flute.”
One thing is for sure: the singer wants to be very hands-on with the wedding preparations. Fisher says,Â ”As you might expect, Carrie’s involved in a lot of the details,” before jokingly adding, “I’ll just be showing up.”
