Instead of a big bash, they’ll be sticking with an intimate affair for family and close friends, which will also be safer as the novel coronavirus continues to spread and the more contagious delta variant makes its way across the country.
The doesn’t mean it won’t be intricately planned, though. In May, Blake joked to USA Today that it would be a ‘pretty classless wedding’ if he planned it, which was why Gwen was taking charged.
‘I want her to do all of that stuff and handle it because it’s going to be great. She’s in the middle of planning the thing, and she’s always so mindful … of me,’ he continued. ‘She’s like, ‘Hey, I don’t want to just take this thing over.’ I think she’s having a blast doing it. I mean, I know she’s having a blast doing it.’

Gwen later opened up about ‘torturing’ herself for months before she uncovered the alleged affair. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said: ‘Everybody knows what happened next… I obviously know the date.
‘It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret.’
She added that she wanted to ‘tell everybody,’ but kept quiet about what was going on for the sake of her children.
Gwen went on: ‘What happened was praying. That’s my childhood, that’s how I was raised. And I think I strayed from that. But you know when it gets that bad, you just get desperate?’
BLAKE’S PAST LOVES:
The country singer married his high school sweetheart and road manager Kaynette Williams in a small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 2003.

It’s rumored Blake cheated on Kaynette with fellow country singer Miranda Lambert who he went on to marry.
Blake talked about falling for Miranda when they performed on stage together in 2005.
