Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock Plan To Elope

The big fall wedding Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock was planning is off. Kelly reveals to People magazine. that the preparations, coupled with her busy schedule made the entire enterprise overwhelming. Now, she and Brandon will tie the knot privately with only his kids in attendance.

“We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, ‘So, we change our minds and we want to elope.’ We just got so overwhelmed by it – all the decisions.”

Explains Clarkson: “We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking.”

“Then honestly the planning – I have a Christmas record coming out. I’m doing a bunch of stuff with State Farm right now (the singer is teaming up with the insurance company to educate kids about safe driving). We have two kids who just started school. We’re going to all these football games and soccer games and volleyball games and [Brandon]’s got one of the biggest artists [Blake Shelton] in country music. He’s flying everywhere.”

Instead of wedding invites to their friends, Kelly sent out notices that explained, “Thank you so much for understanding, but it’s just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister.”

There will be a party of sorts, according to Kelly. “Our friend is throwing us [a party] because we’re about to wrap up construction at our house. He’s throwing us a huge stock the bar party, so all of the people who were going to be at our wedding will be there.”

“Our whole life is a celebration,” Kelly said, philosophical, “That’s what we kept laughing about. We don’t need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, ‘We would rather have an intimate moment that’s special.’ ”
