Britney Spears is reportedly planning a traditional, Southern-style wedding, with close friends and family on her side, when she ties the knot with fiance Jason Trawick.

The singer got engaged to her former manager in December 2011 after two and a half years of dating. According to US reports, Spears and Trawick will be shunning the typical Hollywood wedding in favour of a small family celebration, possible in her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana.

"She wants a traditional Southern-style wedding with comfort food, surrounded by her family, her two sons and all of her childhood friends," the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling InTouch Weekly.

Her first marriage was to her childhood friend Jason Alexander, whom she wed in a Las Vegas affair wearing ripped jeans and a baseball cap.

The union was annulled two days later, with then 22-year-old Spears stating that she 'lacked understanding of her actions.' Six months later, she became engaged to back-up dancer Kevin Federline.

The couple planned their Hollywood wedding for October, but brought the event forward after a media circus began heating up.

The wedding took place at a private home in Studio City, California, with Spears wearing a dramatic 26,000-dollar Monique Lhuillier gown.
