Blake Shelton Schemes ‘Brilliant’ Plan to Leave the Wedding Planning to Miranda Lambert
Blake Shelton has finally come clean as to how he has gotten out of a lot of the planning work for his May 14 wedding to wife-to-be Miranda Lambert. Shelton unapologetically says, "I don't want to brag, but I think the way that I've weaseled out of a lot of these fiance/wedding duties is brilliant. It's brilliant!"
The 'Honey Bee' singer, referring to many of the day-to-day details of planning a wedding, has a strategy for doing as little as he can -- and it seems to be working (so far). "I'm not, uh, that actively involved in the wedding [planning]," Shelton explains, "because I have such horrible taste and I showcase that every opportunity that I can for her, so that she doesn't ask me to help."
He's talking about his lucky lady, of course, and goes on to say, "This is by design, I'm tellin' you. Like when she asks me for my opinion or to go to a website and says, 'You know, hey, will you pick out somethin' here?' I will purposely pick out the ugliest, crappiest lookin' dishes or napkins. And she'll say, 'Ah, you know what, I'll do it,' and then I go back outside, you know, and burn stuff ... which is something I like to do."
As for the honeymoon planning, that's Shelton's job. But maybe Lambert should step in here, too. "I'm not lying, we still don't know what we're going to do. We can't decide. We haven't made any plans," Shelton admits.
One plan that they both agree on is that country star Neal McCoy will play at their reception. Shelton says, "We were at a concert this summer and watched him, and we both looked at each other, high-fived and said, 'There's our guy.'"
Lambert reportedly has the entire month of May off, while Shelton has two concerts in May and will be making his debut on the upcoming TV show 'The Voice,' which airs on NBC on April 26.
