Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are getting married Saturday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, and to do it they’re taking over an entire Ritz-Carlton hotel.

The wedding party began arriving Thursday, AJC sources say. Carey Williams, editor of the Herald Journal in wee Greensboro, Ga. -- population 3,000 and home of the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation -- tells Radar Online that the singer ‘has blocked off all 251 rooms at the hotel,’ and will arrive Friday by helicopter.


These are the kinds of fun things people can do when they’re pulling in eight figures a year, like Underwood has been doing. The ‘American Idol’ winner’s wedding tab is estimated at a half-million bucks.

‘It’s going to be a good-size wedding with plenty of good food and an open bar,’ hockey star Fisher had said to Life & Style, which first had the announcement of the date. ‘But nothing too overblown.’

The mag said he was in charge of planning the honeymoon.
