Changing their plans with just a couple months until their big day, Kelly Clarkson and her fiancee Brandon Blackstock have cancelled their wedding ceremony and now plan to elope.

On Wednesday (August 21), the "American Idol" winner told People magazine that she and Blackstock became overwhelmed with their busy schedules and trying to plan a wedding at the same time.

“We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, ‘So, we change our minds and we want to elope.’ We just got so overwhelmed by it – all the decisions,” the "Stronger" songstress explained. “We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking.”

The couple became engaged in December 2012. No comment was made on when the duo would tie the knot, though the singer hopes people understand. “Our whole life is a celebration. That’s what we kept laughing about. We don’t need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, ‘We would rather have an intimate moment that’s special.’”
