Andy Murray discusses plans for his and Kim Sears' forthcoming wedding

There's just a week to go until Andy Murray and Kim Sears tie the knot, but the tennis pro isn't too fussed about last-minute wedding preparations. In a new US interview, groom-to-be Andy revealed that he has entrusted his future wife with most of the planning for their big day – with the exception of the food and the cake.

"I think in a lot of cases it's just better to let the woman have it how she would like," said Andy. "In terms of flowers and colour schemes and those sorts of things, I couldn't really care less about that, to be honest.


Andy says Kim has been doing most of the wedding planning

"The one thing that I really wanted to do was be involved with the food," he added. "Because I like my food, I like good food. I went along and did the food tasting and I also did the cake tasting as well. So that would be the thing that I would say I have been most involved in.

No doubt the track that will accompany Andy and Kim's first dance as a married couple is another element of the weekend that the Scottish sportsman has had a say in.

"The music is something we chat about together as well," he said.


Andy is currently in the US taking part in the Miami Open

Saturday 11 April will see Andy and Kim say "I do" at Dunblane Cathedral. Late last month it was revealed that the duo had decided to opt for the 300 capacity venue, instead of the small chapel at Cromlix House – the hotel Andy owns.

The reception, however, will still take place at Cromlix House, where Andy's brother Jamie tied the knot in 2010, after the newlyweds have made their way through the bunting-lined streets of Dunblane.

Members of the public are expected to wait outside the cathedral to celebrate with the former Wimbledon champion and his long-term love.

"I'm sure it will be a popular decision, as he's had so much support from the people of Dunblane in the past,"Andy's uncle Niall Erskine told the Daily Mail. "Andy is looking forward to bringing all his family and friends to Dunblane. I'm sure lots of people will come down to see the cars as they go past and it will be a very popular day."
