Mariah Carey and her fiancé James Packer are set to get married soon and it surely seems that they are planning a unique wedding. The two are said to be planning to exchange vows in front of no less than 50 guests, on the island of Barbuda, in the Caribbean.
So, TMZ reported that the pair has already chosen the location for the happy event and they plan on keeping everything among family and close friends, choosing to have a private wedding with a limited number of guests. Some sources talking to the celebrity website indicated that the two stars will get married sometime over the summer.
Sources also claimed that the location chosen by the two, the island of Barbuda, was actually picked for a reason: James will be building here a private resort in a partnership with famous actor Robert De Niro. The exact date of the happy event was not revealed, but insiders claimed that it will most likely take place in mid-June.
“The resort James is building [on Barbuda] is in exactly the same spot Princess Diana used to visit ever year, and there’s a long stretch of beach named after her,” a source said. “Mariah idolizes Princess Diana, so getting married on her favorite beach would be a huge thrill for her; she loves having that connection. On top of that, the sand on the beach is pink, Mariah’s favorite color, so it made it an easy choice,” the insider added.
The sources also claimed that Mariah has made up her mind to only invite some close friends to the wedding, but the invitations are yet to be shipped, which means that the beautiful singer could change her mind with regard to how she wants the wedding to be planned. Furthermore, some sources talking to Hollywood Life have claimed that Mariah plans on inviting only A-list people to her wedding. “Leo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Tiger Woods, P Diddy…basically unless you’re über famous you aren’t getting an invite,” a source said.
As imagined, Mariah and James have not directly talked about the claims, so they are yet to be proven true. Meanwhile, it seems that the beautiful singer is just focusing on her career, as Mariah actually made a comeback in the music world, after she decided to change her management. So, Mariah will be going on her first European tour in a decade which is surely an amazing thing for the famous star and her fans from around the world.
