Carrie Underwood's new husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, has opened up about the couple's big day — including his pre-wedding jitters.

The pair married before 230 guests at a luxurious resort in Georgia, but the Ottawa Senators star felt anxious before saying his vows.

“The only part I was nervous about was everybody watching you,” Mike told the Toronto Sun newspaper. “I’m not one for crowds and being at the center of attention. But we were more thinking about each other.

“I wasn’t really nervous, to be honest. I was excited to be married. I think more people were definitely watching her.”

Mike reveals how difficult he and Carrie found it to limit the invitations. “A couple of her close friends are touring now, so they obviously weren’t able to be there, but she had all her close people that she wanted to be there, and I did too,” Mike says.

But he reveals it was his and Carrie's dream day: "The whole day was great. It was everything we both wanted it to be.

“The whole weekend is almost like a blur,” he added. “The ceremony was really nice, the pastor did a great job, the reception was a lot of fun. Just to have everyone close to us around was a big deal. A wedding’s not nearly as much fun without those close family and friends with you.”

Carrie and Mike hosted a "mix and mingle" event on the Friday night, plus a golf tournament on Saturday morning, with about 60 to 70 participants taking to the course. But Mike only made it through 12 holes.

“I didn’t play 18 because I knew I’d be too tired,” he said. “It was a long day. I needed to go relax a bit.”

The newlyweds then jetted off to Bora Bora for eight days, before relaxing for three days in Napa Valley.

“We had an awesome time,” Mike says. “It was the longest time she’s had off in the last five years. That was probably the longest time I’ve ever been away, too. We had so much fun.”

And while the couple want to start a family, they're keeping children on hold for now.

“We obviously want kids, but that’s down the road,” he said. “Now is not the time, especially with our busy schedules, everything we’ve got going on. We don’t know exactly when, but definitely we will.”

So how does it feel to be a married man? “It’s awesome,” he says. “I’m with my best friend and I love her to death. There’s nothing better, for sure.”
