Mariah Carey's wedding is definitely underway and we know one thing is for sure: there will be absolutely no elevator lighting. "You don't want that overhead lighting, it's hideous!" The "Hero" singer opened up to E! News while in Las Vegas, where she is continuing her Mariah #1 to Infinity residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

During the interview, the diva flashed her stunningly large engagement ring, and revealed even more about her big day. "We're getting it together, darling," Carey said. "You know what? It's time. The dress and the whole thing." 


She also confirmed that she does in fact have her wedding gown ready to go: "It's in a box, darling… I have the dress, the dress is a stone winner," she noted. We’re just hoping that box is getting opened soon! No wedding date has been officially announced, but it seems like all the details are quickly coming together.

Mariah also gushed over her twins with ex-husband Nick Cannon, saying, "Really my babies, they make me laugh so much. I just want to keep it like that." And how does her soon-to-be-husband, James Packer, fit into the picture? "He's really great, he has his own kids. He's a fantastic father."

A total girly girl, Jane loves everything about the wedding-planning process, but her favorite part has to be where it all starts: the engagement ring. She's a sucker for all things sparkly, especially in diamond form and sitting on your ring finger. But she can't count out those gorgeous bridal bouquets. They may not be diamonds, but they still hold a serious wow factor.
