Having been on the road for her biggest headlining tour yet, Elle King hasn’t had much time to plan her pending nuptials yet.

Other than a “dream date next year” and a theme (“carnival – rock and roll circus”), the 26-year-old “America’s Sweetheart” singer hasn’t given much thought to her big day.

“We pretty much just want to have a party,” says King, whose boyfriend, Andrew “Fergie” Ferguson, 32, popped the question in February. “I’ve always been a barefoot, flowers-in-my-hair girl, so I dream of a flowy dress and being around friends and family.”

King’s schedule isn’t opening up any time soon: She’ll play a string of summer festival dates, will open for the Dixie Chicks’ tour starting in September and has a new duet, “Different for Girls,” with country star Dierks Bentley that just dropped Thursday.

Lucky for the two-time Grammy nominee, she has a strong support system.

“Everybody dreams about their wedding day, I just haven’t really had a lot of time to put a lot of thought into it – but things approach so quickly!” says King, who jokes she has options. “I’ll just have Fergie plan the whole thing,” or “My mom [model London King] is gonna deal with it, and I’ll show up!”
