Iggy Azalea may have to cut back on her fairytale wedding plans, because her fiance doesn't want to pay for an over-the-top bash.

The rapper is keen to turn her big day into a real event when she exchanges vows with basketball player Nick Young, but her Prince Charming is hoping to keep the cost down.

Leaving BOA Steakhouse in Los Angeles on Monday, the couple was all smiles until a TMZ paparazzo asked them about their wedding plans.

When questioned whether they were considering a beach or castle affair, the sportsman laughed and said he and Iggy would be getting married at a court house.


The remark prompted Azalea to spit back, "He doesn't wanna pay for s**t."

It's more than likely Young was joking after splashing out for his fiancee's engagement rock.

The Los Angeles Lakers star will need to save up if Azalea wants her way - once source recently told Britain's Heat magazine she has her heart set on two ceremonies; one in her native Australia and the other in Young's hometown of Los Angeles.

"She wants 20 bejewelled white horses and a $US100,000 (NZD$152,776) firework display at both," the insider said.

"She's insisting on over 250 guests at each ceremony and is also pushing for two honeymoons - one to Fiji and the second to Hawaii. They're looking at a bill close to $500,000."

One thing is for sure - Azalea's pal Demi Lovato will be among the bridesmaids when the Fancy star exchanges vows.
