Listen to Kelly Clarkson on iHeartRadio

Kelly Clarkson and her fiance Brandon Blackstock are canceling the extravagant wedding they had planned for this October. 

The singer announced on Wednesday that due to busy schedules, the couple had a change of heart and decided that they "want to elope."  She explains to "People" that things "got crazy" after they sent a save-the-date to their guests and "all the details were leaking." 

Kelly says they just don't have time to plan such a grand affair, particularly now that she has a Christmas album coming out in October as well.  The Grammy winner said that their "whole life is a celebration," so they decided that they would rather "have an intimate moment that's special."  

The couple sent a letter out to their guests, thanking them but saying that "it's just going to be [her] and Brandon, his two kids and the minister."
