LATEST: Britney Spears has confirmed she scrapped plans to wed KEVIN FEDERLINE at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, California, next month (OCT04) when the big day became "too much" to handle.

The pop superstar had intended to exchange vows at the Bacara Resort on 16 October (04) and sent out invites to family and friends - but then changed her mind and wed her dancer fiance on Saturday (18SEP04).

In an exclusive post-wedding interview with America's PEOPLE magazine, Spears says, "I just thought it would be too much if we had done it when we were supposed to.

"It became this huge thing and I was like, 'What are we waiting for? We know this is the real thing, why not just do it now?

"That's why I wanted to sneak and do it our little way... I'm just kind of happy that we pulled off the whole thing."
