Pop beauty Britney Spears will marry fiance Kevin Federline in a lavish wedding at the Beverly Hills Hotel this November (04), taking her vows for the second time in a year.

The ME AGAINST THE MUSIC singer, 22, is already busy arranging the finer details of the glitzy occasion, with the help of a wedding planner and her mother LYNNE.

According to insiders, the estimated budget for the wedding is a cool $1.8 million (GBP1 million) and Britney is particularly keen on covering the venue with specialist white tulips from Amsterdam at a cost of GBP180,000 (GBP100,000).

A source close to her wedding planner says, "She loves the tulips and wants the whole place decked out with them.

"She's also specified that she wants 300 bottles of CRISTAL Champagne. She hasn't decided on a wedding breakfast menu yet but has said she isn't skimping on anything.

"She wants a massive affair that is nothing like the cheap Las Vegas wedding she had before, which was annulled after just 55 hours."

Stunning Britney shocked the world by marrying high school friend JASON Alexander in a quickie ceremony on New Year's Day (1JAN04), and is determined to make the most of her second nuptials on 20 November (04).

The insider continues, "Britney is already having her white wedding dress designed and says it will be very traditional. She is having five bridesmaids including her sister JAMIE and one of her oldest friends from school. She has been scouring wedding magazines for ideas but her mum has a lot of input too.

"Kevin just goes along with anything they say. The plans are getting more lavish by the day. It's real fairytale stuff."
