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.
