Earlier this month, Stefani's family surprised her with a bridal shower. "I got kidnapped by my family to celebrate," she told fans in a video on her Instagram Story. "I'm getting married!" She also shared photos of several gifts including a card addressed to "the Bride to Be" and a bouquet of pink flowers. "Feeling loved feeling blessed," she wrote.
In March, Shelton told Hoda Kotb on the Today show that he was hoping to get married this summer. "I'm afraid if she and I wait until next November, I'm right back into The Voice cycle again," he explained. "I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after. So hopefully this summer. I think we're right here at the point with Covid, it looks like it may be okay, but I don't know. That's tentatively the plan, so we'll see."
Though the couple has a host of famous friends, Stefani shared on Late Night With Seth Meyers in April that they're planning to keep the celebration small. "It's gonna be like, my mom and my dad and just literally gonna be just family," she said. "We are looking forward to that though. It's gonna be fun. We're gonna make it really fun." She added that "it's not gonna be a big, like, you know, it's not like the queen and king are getting married or something."
