Nicki Minaj reportedly wants to arrive at her wedding on an elephant and exchange vows in a hot tub.

The 31-year-old singer is rumoured to be engaged to her long-term partner Safaree Samuels, after she flashed a giant diamond ring while at a Los Angeles airport last month.

Although she is only just thought to have accepted the proposal, Nicki apparently already has grand ideas for her big day.

"She wants to arrive by elephant and to get soaking wet by jumping into either a pool or a hot tub for the ceremony," a source told British magazine Heat. "She's talking fire breathers, naked performers and actually exchanging vows in the hot tub. She wants it to be the most outlandish do of all time."

Although the ceremony might be outrageous, Nicki is going to keep some things more traditional. She won't go for a skimpy gown, instead planning on wearing something couture and toning down her make-up too.

Ideally the star will stretch the festivities out for a few days and apparently hopes to pay tribute to her past too.

"Nicki really want to get married in the Caribbean, as she was born in Trinidad and wants to celebrate that part of her heritage. She's talking about renting a private island and hosting a three-day party - she wants the whole thing to be unforgettable," the insider said.

The singer has been in a relationship with Safaree for ten years and he showed his dedication to her last year by getting a tattoo of her face on his forearm, which took six hours to complete.

"The problem is that a lot of people go and tattoo people they don’t know. Why not tattoo somebody I know, you know," he said at the time.
