Britney Spears' Wedding Should Be Personal & Family-Oriented, Says Wedding Planner
Britney Spears and Jason Trawick just got engaged, but already, people are wondering about the wedding. What type of dress will she wear? Where in the world will she tie the knot? Who will be invited?
Celebuzz caught up with celebrity wedding planner Sasha Souza to chat about Brit's big day, what mistakes she should avoid and how she'd help pull off the pop princess' wedding.
This will mark Brit's third wedding. Should she go all out or keep it intimate? Well, I don't know if you can even count her Vegas wedding. 55 hours? I'd throw it out. Her second wedding [to Kevin Federline] was small. I don't see why she can't have a big, beautiful wedding, if it is her prerogative to do that. Even if someone is at the third, fourth, fifth, sixth wedding, they should still be able to celebrate. This is a life milestone.
If you were planning Britney's wedding, what would you envision? I'd tell her to keep it personal and make it about who she and Jason are as a couple. She could do a big, glitzy wedding, but I don't think that's her style. She should keep it family-oriented and celebrate the blending of these two families. It needs to be meaningful -- even in small ways like her bouquet can be a blend of their two favorite colors. It needs to be about the both of them.
Should Britney sing at her wedding? Personally, I don't think she should. I don't like when the bride or groom are the troubadour at the wedding and put on a big show. It's great to have friends do that instead. Turning on her public persona would take away from the beauty of being a bride. It would turn into a big production -- even if she just sang to Jason personally. If she told me she wanted to sing, I'd tell her to reconsider.
Some brides are opting to wear multiple wedding dresses. As a wedding planner, do you recommend the wardrobe changes? I'm not a big fan of brides that take themselves away from the event and the guests that are there to celebrate. People are spending time to be with you, so if you're elsewhere changing outfits and re-doing hair and make-up, it's rude. If a bride can do a quick change, I can work with that.
Are there big mistakes that Brit should avoid on their big day? Well, weddings aren't perfect. I try to make them as close to perfect as possible, but some brides put too much pressure on how the day goes. Britney should go with the flow and not put too much pressure on perfection. The wedding day is about celebrating a couple's love and happiness, so hopefully she won't get caught up in the little imperfections.
