Mariah Carey has some exciting wedding news to share – she has bought her dress! Mariah is set to marry Australian billionaire James Packer following a whirlwind romance, and while details of their nuptials remain under wraps, the bride revealed this week that they are making progress when it comes to planning their big day.
"We're getting it together, darling," the mum-of-two told E! News. "You know what? It's time. The dress and the whole thing. I'm working and he's working and everyone puts on much pressure.

"I have the dress," the mum-of-two added. Asked where she is keeping her bridal gown, she replied: "It's in a box, darling."
It's not clear exactly when Mariah and James will tie the knot – technically she is still married to ex Nick Cannon, the father of her twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Nick and Mariah split in August 2014 and he filed for divorce later that year. Although they struck a property settlement and agreed joint custody of their children in December 2014, it was recently claimed that Nick has repeatedly declined to sign the paperwork to make the divorce official. But he has insisted that is not the case.
Nick Cannon has denied holding up the divorce proceedings
"There's nothing to tell… me and Mariah get along great, and it's a process, nobody is holding nothing up," he told Extra last week.
"Why would I hold it up? I want her to be happy. She is such a beautiful spirit, and we put the kids first."
When the news first broke in January that James had popped the question to Mariah, her ex was among the first to congratulate them. "Congrats to @MariahCarey and James!" Nick tweeted. "May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple."
