Gwen Stefani has big plans before the year is out. Nothing official has been announced, but Stefani and Blake Shelton are reportedly preparing for a wedding before 2017. Who will get invited to the big ceremony?
During an interview with People, Voice producer Mark Burnett admitted that he wants an invitation to Shelton and Stefani’s wedding.
“I’m really hoping that I get invited to the wedding,” Burnett shared.
Burnett also expressed his surprise in how Shelton’s romance with Stefani blossomed on the hit singing competition and how he didn’t see any of it coming.

“I had no idea by coming to work on a fun music show they would find the loves of their life, and the light exploded and they are happier than you can imagine,” he said. “We are thrilled to be their friends and see the happiness.”
Shelton and Stefani started dating right after they both filed for divorce last summer. Shelton parted ways with Miranda Lambert, while Stefani broke things off with Gavin Rossdale.
When the soon-to-be couple went back to work on The Voice last fall, they immediately hit it off and haven’t looked back since. Their relationship is going so well that many expect a wedding is right around the corner.
“They are not engaged yet,” an inside source revealed. “Everyone is expecting it to happen at some point, though.”
According to CBS News, the wedding might take place before the year is out.
“They want to get married before the end of the year,” an inside source shared.
So far, neither Blake Shelton nor Gwen Stefani have commented on their upcoming nuptials.
When Stefani appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show last week, Us Weekly reports that she hesitated when the American Idol alum questioned her about marriage.
“Everything is going so quickly,” Stefani said on On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “I’m in the moment and, um… look at me, you’ve got me tongue-tied.”
Stefani continued, “I look at this year and I think, I just feel so awake. I feel so alive and grateful. This year has been so full of so much joy.”
Based on Stefani’s comments, it seems like only a matter of time before she gets hitched with Shelton.

If Stefani and Shelton are planning a wedding, they apparently haven’t broken the news to close friends and family.
“If there is a wedding date, they haven’t told their families yet,” an insider stated.
Despite keeping everything a secret, the source added that Stefani and the country crooner constantly discuss their future and how they want to spend the rest of their lives together. The No Doubt alum even knows how she wants the wedding to play out.
“Gwen has said they both want something more low-key than their first wedding,” a source indicated. “It would likely be at Blake’s ranch [in Oklahoma] or in the backyard. Gwen doesn’t really care, she is just in love with Blake and their life together.”
Aside from the wedding, the couple is reportedly talking about expanding their family. Stefani had three kids with Rossdale — Kingston (10), Zuma (8), and Apollo (2) — and allegedly wants to have a daughter with Shelton.
While Stefani plans the ceremony, In Touch Weekly is reporting that Shelton built her a massive tropical themed mansion for a wedding gift.
The Hawaiian-style estate rests on the banks of Lake Texoma, Oklahoma and features a large outdoor party area, a gorgeous pool, palm trees, accented shutters and doors, and three small huts.
Fans can watch Shelton in action when new episodes of The Voice air Monday nights on NBC.
