Carrie Underwood wedding party arrives in Georgia

A couple of sources have tipped us about the upcoming wedding between country star Carrie Underwood and pro hockey player Mike Fisher.

The latest scoop whispered in our ear suggests the party is getting started over at The Ritz-Carlton, Reynolds Plantation, in Greensboro.

A source who is there now says Underwood’s entourage has begun showing up at the exclusive resort.

The Life & Style magazine Web site includes comments from the couple about the ceremony:

“It’s going to be a good size wedding with plenty of good food and an open bar,” Fisher said. “But nothing too overblown. It’s still in the planning stages, so a lot of the details haven’t been finalized.”

He added that, ”As you might expect, Carrie’s involved in a lot of the details,” and joked, “I’ll just be showing up.”

The magazine quoted Underwood explaining, ”I’m Southern. I like big hair and eyeliner. I want my wedding to be me, so I’ll probably be rocking some big hair and eyeliner… I want [the dress] to be pretty traditional. I think I want flowers on it – not real flowers. [The designer will] probably be someone I’ve worked with before.”

So, presumably the entourage our informant spotted includes hair and makeup folks in addition to friends and family.

We want to point out that our tipsters are not Ritz-Carlton employees, who would all staple their own tongues before sharing information about a guest, famous or otherwise. The Ritz-Carlton is known for never spilling a drop of intel about anyone who stays there – which is probably why people like Carrie Underwood would plan events there.

Carrie didn’t speak to Life & Style. They lifted a quote from an interview Carrie gave with People mag and made it seem like she spoke directly with them. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the Mike Fisher quotes were stolen too.

Dear Cheers,

I will double check to ensure proper attribution. The AJC is very big on “check our sources” transparency.

For now here is some of the L&S coverage:

I think Oklahoma is midwestern AND southern. Here is Wikipedia’s definition of Southern U.S. States … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_United_States which includes Oklahoma as a southern state.

I am a little surprised she chose Georgia. I wish them well and hope they “make it” to old age!

Yes Oklahoma is in the midwest/southwest part of the country, but take it as a compliment. People WISH they were from the beautiful state of Georgia!!!

Some of you just reply on blogs to test your knowledge…way too much negative energy (what’s southern, what’s midwestern—good God), go and test you knowledge perhaps in a class for higher education.

For God sake’s, its a wedding! At least its some good news besides who was shot and killed, what the dems or the repubs are doing. Blogs are playgrounds for idiots…..urggggghhhhhh

By the way….Congrats Carrie!! You go girl! Sorry I had to vent on those that just hate to see good things happen. Oh and the HELL with people putting a timeline on how long your union will last!!

Carrie, I think you should invite the particular idiots to your wedding, maybe it will add some joy to their lives!!!!

Congratulations Carrie. I hope you will be immensely happy. For all of you putting a time line on their union, I hope you are all wrong and I applaud her for getting married and not just “shacking” up like so many of todays entertainment industry stars. Carrie is a positive role model in an industry that seems to produce very few these days.

Scott, her tour is going to Georgia in the fall. The past spring/summer shows were just the first leg of the tour. She isn’t going to her home state until the fall either.

There’s nothing white trash about Carrie Underwood. Yes Oklahoma is a combination of the Midwest and South but props to her for claiming the South!

Try to book a room at the Ritz for this weekend and you’ll find there is not a single available room. Try to book one for next weekend and you’ll find a plethora of choices. Unless the weekend after 4th of July has become a widly populer travel weekend to destinations like the middle of Georgia, it’s not too far fetched that the rumors of her wedding taking place there are true.

@Rawdog How exactly can Carrie Underwood be considered “white trash”??? First, no one should be called that. Second, she is NOT impoverished and ignorant. She never was impoverished even before Idol and she has a degree in Journalism, Magna cum Laude.

Oklahoma might be midwestern in locale but it is definitely southern in culture, if only due to its proximity to Texas.

And yes, to all who wander…Oklahoma is a southern state. I have a friend from a small town just east of Oklahoma City, and she will tell you in a heart beat that she is a southern girl.

in the know……… Can I come over to your house this weekend? I love Carrie, just went to her fan club party, 2nd year in a row, last month with my 14 year old daughter. She is an awesome role model for teen girls. She even said that Mike has helped her to improve her walk with the Lord – sounds like a good man to me! I hope they have a long and happy marriage together!

Gill, Oklahoma is NOT in the midwest. The midwest officially is comprised of the following 12 states – Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio and Wisconsin.

Oklahoma is officially a southern state (or more precisely “south central”).

And your little “Oklahomo” jab was sophomoric and ignorant.

[...] Atlanta Journal-Constitution is now reporting that the entourage for the Carrie Underwood-Mike Fisher wedding has arrived in Georgia and is [...]

It’s ironic, but just last week I saw a map on the internet of the states that make up the southern
sector of the US. And OK and TX were on that map. Debate settled, thank you.

There are some authentic “bad girls” in country music. I think of Gretchen Wilson, who was previously the female bouncer in the roadhouse where she first sang professionally. But, Carrie Underwood is NOT one of the “bad girls” aka “white trash”. Kelly Pickler “Pickles” is also dating a Canadian hockey pro. She wasn’t exactly a debutante. Maybe you’re confused.

Why do the comment sections in the sports blogs have at least 80 comments before a second page is needed and this one is 10?

Actually, if you want to get technical… Oklahoma is a southwestern state. If you look at a map you will see that it is just as southern as Arkansas, Tennessee etc.. which are considered “southeast”. Not a big deal, just surprised that folks don’t know geography.

Nevermind. I see the see all link. I wonder if enough comments show up here if it goes to a page 2 even with see all.

My grandson has a picture of Carrie as the background on his computer. He made me, his grandpa, help him download it. A picture of Carrie sitting in a swing. I’m more of a Waylon/Willie fan, but my grandson adores Carrie. Walks around all day with her singing on his earphones.
