Miranda Lambert: No Makeup for Me

She loved getting all gussied up for her recent walk down the aisle to now-husband Blake Shelton, but when Miranda Lambert is just hanging out, you’re likely to find her wearing something a lot more casual.

“We live in Oklahoma, two hours from any city, and it’s a haven. Just being in the woods, sitting around a fire being normal, keeps us sane,” Lambert shares in the November issue of Ladies’ Home Journal. “We love to ride four wheelers, go for walks.”

The newlyweds own two farms, just six miles apart from each other. “My house was built in the ’50s, and Blake’s tall and the door is short, so he physically can’t live at my house, so we kind of moved into his,” Lambert shares. “His is total guy house, so I’ve been working to make it girl-friendly. You know, bedspreads and candles.”

Miranda Lambert's Wedding Wear: The Reception and More!

For her intimate wedding ceremony, Miranda Lambert wore her mom’s vintage Gunne Sax gown, but when it came time for the reception, the country singer put on a party dress and hit the dance floor in her custom white cowgirl boots! Lambert, who wore a tiny fascinator in her hair, chose the Vineyard by Priscilla of Boston “Drew” dress for the night’s festivities (accented with fabulous jewels), giving her some freedom to move. “She wanted to have a fun and spontaneous dress for the reception,” Priscilla of Boston designer Mark Brower tells PEOPLE. “It was very important that she feel comfortable in the dress. She wanted to enjoy the day and feel like herself — a genuine country girl!” Lambert also wanted her bridesmaids (below) to feel comfortable, so she chose a different dress for each bridesmaid, sticking to a color scheme of lilacs, creams and browns. “They all had a common theme, they all looked like a vintage sundress and were short,” Lambert’s mom Bev tells PEOPLE. “They all fit their personalities perfectly.” To throw in some country fun, Lambert gifted each bridesmaid with a new pair of Old Gringo boots (groom Blake Shelton gave his groomsmen boots, as well). Says Bev, “It’s a brand she loves.” For more on Lambert and Shelton’s wedding and all your favorite country stars — and for free music downloads! — pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE Country or check out people.com/free. –Reporting by Danielle Anderson

Miranda Lambert's Wedding Gown: Chosen for Good Luck!

When planning her wedding to country star Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert had the perfect dress in mind — and didn’t have to look far to find it. “The first time I heard her talking about it, she said, ‘My mom and dad have had a great long marriage and it must have been good luck for them, so I want to start my marriage wearing the same dress my mom had on,’” recalls Lambert’s publicist and wedding planner Kathy Best. “It was all about the lasting love her parents had, and that was very important to her.” Once Lambert slipped into the Gunne Sax dress, she knew she’d found the one. “It was a very tearful moment the day we first tried it on,” Lambert’s mom, Bev, tells PEOPLE Country. “She’s like, ‘I’m not even going to try another dress on. This is it Mom. There’s no other dress that would fit me better or mean more to me than this dress.’ It was stunning on her.” The gown, which Bev wore during her 1979 nuptials, had been tucked inside a cedar chest for more than 30 years, so Lambert gave it a little updating, adding a small train of the same fabric to the end, but otherwise leaving the spaghetti-strap, off-white frock untouched. During the couple’s wedding ceremony, Lambert’s family pastor explained the significance of the dress, and at the barnyard reception, the newlyweds displayed photos of their parents at their own weddings — including a shot of Bev in the Gunne Sax gown. “It was perfect,” Best adds. “And [Miranda] was just beautiful.” For more on Lambert and Shelton’s wedding and all your favorite country stars — and for free music downloads! — pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE Country or check out people.com/free. –Reporting by Danielle Anderson

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton's Wedding Rings: All the Details!

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert may have enjoyed venison harvested by the bride during their Saturday night wedding, but their nuptials did have at least one glamorous element: the bling. The lovebirds, who tied the knot at the Don Strange Ranch in Boerne, Texas, exchanged custom-made rings designed by Beverly Hills jeweler Johnathon Arndt. (Arndt also crafted Carrie Underwood‘s engagement ring and wedding band.) According to a release, Arndt created a 5-carat white diamond “Eternity” ring for Lambert, designed to complement her stunning engagement ring. Shelton’s wedding band was a bit more unique, based on one of his tattoos. Arndt first made a sketch of the ink, then spent 60 days hand engraving the ring, which features a black diamond mounted on the inside — a special request from Lambert. As for the bride’s wedding day look, Arndt says that she walked down the aisle wearing a $1.2 million three-tier, 30-carat diamond necklace, plus diamond teardrop earrings to match. For the reception, the country cutie added a $250,000 cocktail ring from Arndt’s 2011 “Bombay” collection, a sparkler that boasted 60 carats of multi-colored sapphires set in 18-karat black gold. She also slipped into a Karen Lindner Designs freshwater pearl and vintage rhinestone tangle necklace, which featured a 1940s-era pave sterling bird brooch. (Her bridesmaids wore necklaces by the designer, as well.) Guess everything is bigger in Texas! –Kate Hogan

Miranda Lambert's Wedding Dress Will Show Off Her Curves, Friend Says

Miranda Lambert’s Wedding Dress Will Show Off Her Curves

Miranda Lambert has no trouble speaking her mind in her music, and on her wedding day, she’ll have no problem wearing a dress that features her curves. “She’s a real woman and I love that about her,” Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott said Monday at the American Country Awards, “so it will be something that shows off her curves.” Scott, along with her two bandmates, has been invited to attend the nuptials and has already begun planning her wedding gift for the pair. “They’re perfect for each other,” said Scott, who added that she’s thinking about getting them “some kind of pistol,” since “they like to hunt together.” Scott, however, may be putting more thought into the wedding than Lambert’s fiancé, Blake Shelton, who says he’s letting Lambert do all the planning. “Last I heard [the wedding date] was in the spring, but that’s a constantly changing event,” he said. “Miranda is going to do this exactly how she wants to do it and I’m staying the hell out of the way.” –Mark Gray

Miranda Lambert's CMA Moment: 9 Nominations, 4 Gorgeous Gowns!

Miranda Lambert's CMA Cinderella Moment: 9 Nominations, 4 Gorgeous Gowns! Sherri Hill; Inset:Mark Sullivan/Getty

When country singer Miranda Lambert was nominated for nine Country Music Awards, her stylist Tiffany Gifford called designer Sherri Hill to dress her like a winner. “Tonight is definitely her Cinderella moment so the dresses had to be over the top, perfect,” Tiffany told PEOPLE exclusively. And while the engaged star has worked to lose her “jiggles and wiggles,” finding the perfect dress for tonight’s big event wasn’t so simple. “She’s a size eight, she’s not sample size, so it’s about dressing her for her body. She’s got a beautiful figure but she’s got curves,” explained Tiffany. And after narrowing down the 12 dresses that Sherri initially designed for Miranda to just four, PEOPLE is getting a sneak peek at the drool-worthy sketches—and by the looks of it, tonight is sure to be full of fairytale moments. Miranda, who will also celebrate her 27th birthday after the show, plans to walk the red carpet in a simple fuchsia, cap-sleeved gown which calls for jewelry and gold Stuart Weitzman heels to reveal her country rock edge. Originally, the Southern country girl wanted to wear pants for her solo performance but now, plans to pair a black corset mesh dress with Rock & Republic shoes. And although the dress for her performance with Sheryl Crow and Loretta Lynn is still undecided, Tiffany says Miranda’s final after party–and birthday!–look will be a strapless nude cocktail dress which we hope is accessorized with nine awards! Tune in to the CMAs tonight at 8/7 central on ABC to find out. –Jessie Goldberg
