Kelly Clarkson has abandoned her plans for a fairytale wedding and insists she and her fiance Brandon Blackstock are now considering eloping.

The singer was planning an “earthy” autumn wedding at the home she shares with the music executive, but admits the planning has become a little too much for her.

The “Since U Been Gone” singer tells People.com, “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.”

“We sent out a save-the-date (invitation) to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking.”

“I have a Christmas record coming out, I’m doing a bunch of (promotional) stuff with (insurance company) State Farm right now, 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 in country music (Blake Shelton). He’s flying everywhere.”

Clarkson tells the publication the couple has sent guests a note, which reads: “Thank you so much for understanding, but it’s just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister.”

And she adds, “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.”
