Birdman and Toni Braxton Are Planning a ‘Great Gatsby’-Themed Wedding
Birdman and fianceé Toni Braxton are preparing to take the next step in their relationship and are gearing up for their wedding. In an interview with People published on April 19, Braxton opened up about their upcoming marriage and revealed the "Heart Away" couple's plans for a Great Gatsby-themed wedding.
“This is my second wedding and I’m over 40—It’s like Carrie Bradshaw, the last bride over 40—so I want something that’s elegant and a little sexy," she said. "I’ve already done the beautiful bell dress at my first wedding. This time, I want something that’s more vintage—’20s and ’30s like Great Gatsby-themed.”
While the R&B singer has the most say about the wedding, Birdman will get to choose the location. “He wants to get married in California,” said Braxton. “We talked about Atlanta, but he said no because he didn’t want any remnants of my first wedding.”
The rapper also had one more request for the event but had to compromise. “He said he wants macaroni and cheese. I said, ‘Can we have macaroni and cheese balls to keep it pretty?'" she said.
Elsewhere during the interview, Braxton opened up about how the relationship between the two came to be, revealing the Cash Money Records founder was just a friend at first. “He told me he always liked me and I was like, ‘You never told me!’ And he’s like, ‘Well, you were married!’ He said, ‘I was always digging you,'" the singer said.
Birdman professed his love for Braxton during a February episode of The Wendy Williams Show, telling Williams, "T, that's my girl, my friend, my family… that's my love, my soldier, my life. She's my life. I love her to death."
A date for the couple's wedding has yet to be revealed.
