Kelly Clarkson Reveals Her Wedding Plans

In a radio interview this week, the recently-engaged singer admitted she's "overwhelmed" with the idea of planning a wedding. Clarkson also shared that she and fiancé Brandon Blackstock are considering a small, outdoor wedding this fall — though, like most brides, she's struggling to cut the guest list

Well, Kelly, since you're feeling a little overwhelmed, we thought we'd help you out and pull together some inspiration. Here, check out our favorite ideas for an intimate fall wedding:

Ceremony Décor
Clarkson admits that she's terrified of everyone watching her walk down the aisle. "That is like the worst thing ever," she said.  Might we suggest distracting them with some gorgeous décor?

Attire

Clarkson hasn't spilled any details about her dream dress, but we can definitely envision the Texas-born bride in a pair of cowboy boots:

Reception
In honor of their country roots, we can see the couple choosing a rustic barn for their venue.

Despite the bold-faced names we expect to see on the guest list, we think Clarkson will take a more minimalist approach with the décor. But we're sure there will be fabulous stage for close friend Blake Sheldon and future mother-in-law Reba McEntire to perform.
