Mariah Carey Spills Details on Her Upcoming Wedding
The "Dreamlover" singer gives Personal Space some exclusive scoop on the wedding planning process.
Ever since Mariah Carey said "yes" to Australian billionaire businessman James Packer's proposal back in January, wedding watchers everywhere have been clamoring for updates. When Personal Space caught up with the chart topper at the NBCUniversal Upfront presentation on Monday, she revealed that things are moving along quite nicely in the wedding planning department, sharing that it's all "going well."
The updates have been coming in slowly from the elusive chanteuse over the last few months. But one thing's for sure: she won't be taking the stage at her wedding reception. "Why would you sing at your own wedding. It's obnoxious!" Mariah told People over the weekend. Just last month, she shared that she's even picked out her wedding dress. "It looks good. They came and brought it … I can't say the people. I can't say their names. The fabulous designer house that's amazing," she told Entertainment Tonight.
James asked Mariah to marry him back in January, popping the question with an impressive 35-carat ring, valued at $7.5 million. Following the proposal, Mariah commented on her impressive bling. "It's so heavy I can't lift my arm up! No...It's a nice chunk," she told E! News shortly after becoming engaged to the businessman. "He's an exceptional person and really...it gets more romantic by the day, so it's very sweet," she added at the time.
