Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got engaged back in October after five years of dating, but planning a wedding in the time of COVID-19 has been far from easy for them. Now, they have something new to worry about as the singers reportedly “fear a tornado could destroy their Oklahoma wedding plans” for this summer.
The Sun reported that meteorologists have predicted that this will be a very active year for tornadoes after several storms already have ravaged the south this year. As summer comes closer, Shelton and Stefani are still having trouble setting an exact date for their wedding.
A source close to the couple said that Stefani is “pushing hard” to set an early fall wedding date for their first ceremony in Oklahoma, and they will later do a second one in Los Angeles. Shelton, however, is eager to get married in the summer, and the only thing stopping them from doing that is the possibility of a tornado ruining their plans.
The insider went on to say that the chapel Shelton built for Stefani, who wants to get married under the Catholic church, “isn’t built to withstand even a minor wind event.” Regardless of all these complications, the source said that there is no doubt that Shelton and Stefani will be married by the end of 2021.
“They are just so excited to be doing this. It’s been worth the wait,” the insider said.
Back in February, Shelton opened up about how he wants to lose weight by his wedding day.
“Oh god no! Of course, I want to. The good thing for me is we haven’t set a wedding date, so I don’t have to start yet!” he said. “I don’t want to lose the weight for no good reason. I’m not going to waste my time losing weight for no good reason. I gotta leave it tacked on till the end.”
Shelton later added that his goal is to lose ten pounds.
“I feel like if I say 10, I have to do it. So, 10. It’s out there now, I can’t let people down,” he said. “I’ve readjusted all the mirrors in the house. So they look like you when you’re taking a selfie from up above because you can’t even stand and look at myself in the mirror.”
“I’ve rearranged them or they’re kind of angled down, looking down at me,” Shelton added. “So I’m looking up and it’s not so bad.”
