  • For those lucky guys and gals invited to Kelly Clarkson's wedding, there's no need to save the date anymore! The bride-to-be just announced her plans to forgo a big ceremony because she's too "busy."

    "We just got so overwhelmed by it -- all the decisions," Clarkson revealed to People magazine Wednesday of her and fiance Brandon Blackstock's decision to elope.

    "I have a Christmas record coming out. I'm doing a bunch of stuff with 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 [Blake Shelton] in country music. He's flying everywhere."

    Though they'd already sent out invitations, the 31-year-old singer divulged that she and her fiance had already notified guests (via their engagement photo) that the fall service was off. Rather than call off the nuptials, the pair decided on an intimate ceremony with just Blackstock's two kids and the minister.

    "Our whole life is a celebration," Clarkson explained. "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.'"

    The former "American Idol" winner announced her engagement to Blackstock last December via Twitter after the pair had been dating for one year.
