Carrie Underwood is really puttin' on the Ritz!

The country-pop princess' camp has descended on the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, in Greensboro, Ga., where she and NHL player Mike Fisher are planning to tie the knot Saturday night in what's looking to be a pretty lavish ceremony.

"They've got tents everywhere. Security was so tight this morning," Carey Williams, editor of the local Herald Journal, which confirmed the nuptial news, tells E! News. "Security has kicked all guests out and now you need an armband on at all times" to be on the premises.

Underwood has apparently let her wedding planner take the wheel.

More than 250 rooms are rented out for guests such as Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who were reportedly headed to Greensboro tonight for a rehearsal dinner catered by a chef that Underwood's flying in for the occasion.

Also on the guest list, according to the Herald's sources at the Ritz, are Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Fisher's fellow Ottawa Senators Chris Neil and Chris Phillips.

"This event has been a blessing to this county," Williams says. "It's unbelievable. It's just unreal. The people are thrilled here."

The road heading into the hotel will be closed to nonwedding traffic tomorrow, so the paparazzi, presuming they want to get a peek, will have to approach the lakeside property by boat.

Underwood and Fisher will reportedly be spending their wedding night in the Ritz's 5,400-square-foot Presidential House.
