It'll be a southern wedding for Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian. According to Us Weekly's sources, the tennis champion and Reddit co-founder will exchange vows in New Orleans.

 

The insider also gave dished on the details of couple's fast-approaching nuptials. We can expect to see "lots of white with pastel accents," they said, before hinting at the massive guest list. Approximately 250 people will be there to watch Williams and Ohanian walk down the aisle. The source didn't reveal when the wedding will take place, but according to clues from the bride-to-be, the celebration is just around the corner. In July, she told E! News that she wouldn't be a bride until two very important celebrations were complete. "We are still waiting. There was a bridal shower, and after the bridal comes the bachelorette [party]," she said.

The athlete celebrated the latter this past weekend, with her sister Venus, and friends Ciara and LaLa Anthony in tow. The group celebrated the bride-to-be at New York City's Baccarat Hotel, then took a party bus to seafood restaurant, Legasea. The following day, Williams' crew got pampered at the hotel's Spa de La Mer. Looks like the star is rested, relaxed, and ready to say "I do!" Does this mean that the couple is officially done with the planning phase?

That wasn't the only hint the future Mrs. Ohanian has dropped as of late. Williams just posted a video to her daughter's own Instagram page, which shows the little one boarding a private plane. Only time will tell, but it's possible that she's on her way to New Orleans to be Mom and Dad's flower girl this weekend. Williams and Ohanian announced their engagement in Dember last year, and welcomed their first child, Alexis Olympia, in September.
