Eddie Murphy's ex-wife NICOLE is opting for a small beach wedding when she marries retired American footballer Michael Strahan - because her first marriage to the Hollywood comedian was so "extravagant".
Nicole Murphy has been busy planning her upcoming nuptials since June (09), when Strahan proposed after two years of dating.
But the model/actress, who divorced the Nutty Professor star in 2005, insists she's not looking to splash out on a huge ceremony, because she wants her latest big day to be a "simple" affair.
She tells People.com, "It's my second time around, and I had the big extravagant wedding when I got married to Eddie. I want to do something really simple.
"I want the dress to be flowy and elegant, and I'd love all the guests to wear cream, and no shoes on the beach."
The couple will wed next summer (Jun10), a year after becoming engaged.
