She may not still be rocking her custom Monique Lhuiller gown, but there was no mistaking Carrie Underwood’s honeymoon glow as she hit the Today show stage Friday morning to not only perform hits like “Undo It” and “Cowboy Casanova”, but also flaunt her sparkling new wedding band. After tying the knot with hockey player Mike Fisher, 30, in a Southern style wedding earlier this month, Underwood has swapped a diamond band by jeweler Jonathon Arndt for the yellow diamond engagement ring he had also designed for her. So how’s married life treating the country queen? “It’s a lot like dating life,” she said, which includes continuing their long distance relationship with hockey player husband Fisher in Canada, where he plays for the Ottawa Senators. “It’s good,” she says. “We’re both very busy people and understand each other’s life, so we’re okay with it.” –– Alison Schwartz

Born and raised in the South and lived waaay past time to rely on Medicare so I’ve seen a few weddings in my time but what exactly is a “Southern style” wedding? I’ve seen some beautiful weddings in AL, GA, MS, and so on but I’ve also seem some beautiful ones “up North”. I certainly never knew there was such a thing as ‘Southern style’ unless it just means it took place in the South.

Crystle on

I loved Carrie’s Performance and Interview

Mel on

Why not wear the wedding band and the engagement ring??

Devon on

It’s great if they are happy with the situation, but I couldn’t be away from my husband like that. Marriage is about building a life together and that’s really difficult if you are never together.

dont see it lasting. long distance relationships rarely do.

IndependentWoman on

it’s only difficult if you make it difficult, being apart from your husband doesn’t mean you can’t build a relationship together, obviously these two already have built a relationship thats why there was a wedding to begin with…and they see each other more then people think there private people so they hang in nashville or ottawa where the paparazzi don’t exist, they don’t go to “the Ivy” or hang in L.A. at all the hotspots…there lowkey people. i love that shes an independent woman and even though shes married she still does what is important to her, theres no need to be clingy and needy when she has her own things going on…i think long distance relationship are difficult but when you try you make it work and make it an effort to see each other….

Tammy on

I think Carrie and Mike make such a great couple. I wish them all the best.

Beth on

Long distance relationships CAN last…ANY relationship can last if two people work hard enough on them and love each other enough for it to work. I mean sure, things happen and that isn’t always the case, but just because there’s distance doesn’t mean they aren’t going to last. I hope they have a long happy life together.

stephen akadjah on

it was really fantastic

Distance doesnt build a relationship, people do. and LULU WTF does agooloogoof mean?

in response to susiq, a southern style wedding is usually very elegant, traditional, charming, down-home with strong family touches. it is a lot of things mixed together that make is special to the south.

The People mag. wedding pictures were disappointing. Her dress was so NOT pretty. She’s just a greedy stuck up witch now.

Suzanne on

She is quite simply…..beautiful inside and out!

SHar on

AMEN – AMEN – AMEN Independent Woman. They have already been doing it for the last two years and Carrie herself said that they spend more time together than people think. I didnt even know she was dating anyone until she shouted out “I love you Mike” at an award show so they have managed to keep it low key so far. So let’s wish them all the happiness in the world and not doom this marriage before it even starts.

SHar on

Is it really necessary to make comments like this. I thought her wedding gown was gorgeous on her – it may not be for everyone but she looked beautiful.

Maybe you wanna tune into Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this weekend where there will be 500 of their closest friends and lots of pomp and ceremony to the tune of in excess of 2 million dollars. And people knocked Carrie for having one costing 500,000. Tune into that one and maybe it will meet your approval.

What BS, Frances. “Strong family touches,” lol. I suppose weddings that take place out of the south have NONE of the qualities you described…

AJR on

A long-distance marriage?

AJR on

Good luck with that…


If long distance romance has such a bleak outlook, it must really upset all the spouses in the armed forces when duty calls. If there is any depth to a relationship, spending time apart will not make it just fall apart. If getting married is just all about the wedding & sex, then plan to find yourself in lot’s of trouble. I wish all the best to Mark & Carrie, they seem like a very grounded, loving couple.

They will make it work, I’ve seen both kinds of relationships. Ones that are long distance and some where the couple is stuck together like glue and the one common factor is that there is true love. It’s not about distance…it’s all about love! All you need is love! Sometimes being apart for awhile can be refreshing, hey it works for Tim and Faith. They were both touring and apart for months at a time and they still had time to start a family. Mike wont play hockey forever and when the time comes for them to start a family they will spend every waking minute with each other.

Irene on

You can still have a good marriage even if your not together all the time. My husband is home 2 day’s per week. We have a very good marriage. Been together 15 years now. It’s how much you love one another and how you use the time when you are together. Evedently we are doing something right.. I think Carrie and Mike are going to do just fine.

valencia on

Am I the only one who is so sick of this chick? Everywhere I turn, there she is. Who cares about her damn wedding and her stupid ring. Lots of people get married everyday. Yes, she is talented and her songs are great but enough already.

Kiren on

She’s adorable I love her!

Amy on

Mike really got himself a high maintenance gal. Good luck with that one buddy.

Jean on

Carrie and Mike seem so happy! I think they will have a great marriage because they waited and found the right person. Carrie looked and sounded amazing on the Today Show. Loved her outfit. WTG, Carrie!!! Looking forward to your fall tour!

thesinglemomblog on

Where is the engagement ring?

webmistress on

Ok put a ring on it! cool good luck and be happy to Carrie Underwood

Jen G on

Hey Jean, keep your negativity to yourself. You are probably the one who goes to weddings just so you can voice your reservations when they ask that during the ceremony. Maybe you have been burned or something that has you feeling so negative, I don’t know nor do I care. However, these 2 seem genuinely happy and speaking from experience long distance relationships work just fine if you have the right people involved. These 2 seem secure enough to handle it. So Miss Negative Nancy, take your cynical relationship opinions somewhere else. Your comment was just uncalled for. Newlyweds deserve well wishes, not hopes for disaster. Geesh!

Kit on

Susan, jealous much? Carrie’s dress wa s absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

To the person that ask why she doesn’t wear her engagement ring; Have you SEEN it? It’s HUGE! During her performance on the Today show she was constantly reaching into the crowd to shake hands, high five etc. Does she really need some idiot trying to make off with her engagement rock?? I think not.

SB on

Mike Fisher is a man of Faith who described Carrie last night at a church event in Ottawa as the woman he has waited for (despite being teased for being too picky) because he only wanted the best person for him and that he appreciated the fact that he could trust her. If anyone can do a long-distance relationship, I believe they could.

SB on

To clarify, he said he was teased in the past for being single for a long time, and that people said he was too picky and should settle down. He wanted to wait until he met the right girl for him

SB on

For the people that know Mike Fisher, the fact that HE (who is a top quality but low-key man) chose HER, means that she must have many good qualities.

bev on

I hope she never changes. She seems down to earth and counts her blessings. So many should take a lesson from her.

Jeff Folk on

Blessings for a marriage till death do you part, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, to Carrie and Mike Fisher. Mike, may you treat her and love her as Christ loved and gave himself up for the church with a sacrificial love every ay like the first day you met and in return, Carrie, may you respect him and love him as well and both of you except God’s eternal gift of salvation to forgive us for our sins through His son Jesus Chist’s death on the cross and make God the center of your mariage and then spend eternity with Him. May you grow closer together each day and may your careers NEVER take priority over each other.

Candace on

She married weeks ago. People get married every day for heaven’s sakes. She needs to get over herself.
