Haven't you ever though about doing this too?

Kelly Clarkson and beau Brandon Blackstock are calling off their big, fancy wedding.

Instead of a huge bash, they’re eloping. 

Kelly says the wedding was just too much to handle. She tells PEOPLE mahg, “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.”

Clarkson said she was going crazy with the wedding plans, adding that she was ‘over it’.

She explained, “We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking. Then, honestly, the planning — I have a Christmas record coming out. I’m doing a bunch of stuff with State Farm right now … we have two kids who just started school. We’re going to all these football games and soccer games and volleyball games and [Brandon]‘s got one of the biggest artists [Blake Shelton] in country music. He’s flying everywhere.”

When the couple finally decided to elope, “sent out an engagement photo to everyone and said, ‘Thank you so much for understanding, but it’s just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister.’”
