Mariah Carey is reportedly planning the biggest wedding in history, boasting three ceremonies - including one where she'll be married by Minnie and Mickey Mouse.

The singer is engaged to billionaire businessman James Packer, who popped the question with a €7 million ring in January - just eight months after they started dating. Although Mariah is still legally married to Nick Cannon and James is also in the process of divorcing, the pair are said to have already started planning their big day.

"She wants the biggest wedding in history. She has every intention of playing the 'billion dollar bride' and James has given her an unlimited budget," an insider told Britain's Heat magazine, adding the pair want three special days of celebration.

"The first wedding will be in Australia. They'll fly everyone to Sydney by private jet and then close off several nearby beaches. Mariah wants one room filled with desserts and another filled with lobster flown from Maine. Then, there will be a wedding in Disneyland, California, where vows will be overseen by Minnie and Mickey Mouse. Mariah will stay in the exclusive Cinderella Castle Suite, where she'll be treated to a white-chocolate Cinderella carriage and the toilet is an actual golden throne."

It seems this ceremony is the extra special one, which is why Mariah is going all out for it. She's said to be especially keen to secure some A-list musical guests.

"The Disney wedding is going to be like nothing Hollywood's ever seen," the source said. "Mariah wants Beyonce, Kanye West, Michael Buble, Elton John and Prince to do a small set. She's also planning to fly the New York Symphony in to play while she walks down the aisle, and there will be performances from Cirque de Soleil, plus fireworks spelling out their names across the sky."

The final event will be held in Las Vegas and, unsurprisingly, it's also going to be lavish.

"That'll be followed by a final ceremony in Las Vegas, where they're going to take over Caesars Palace," the source told Heat. "Mariah wants staff to dress up as characters from Cleopatra's time, so guests will be served by handmaidens and looked after by gladiator guards."
