Just last week, Minaj opened up about wedding plans while talking with ET's Keltie Knight at the launch party for her new fashion line, Fendi Prints On.
"We got the marriage license, now I just have to wait until my pastor that I love comes and does it for us," Minaj shared. "The big wedding and all that stuff, that will happen, but just not at this moment."
She added that, although she has "a dope designer" for her gown and is "really excited" for the nuptials, she's not overly focused on the details of the wedding itself.

Nicki Minaj's New Man: Everything We Know About His Past
"When I was little, I always imagined princess and marriage and the wedding and now it's more to me about the life, the future, the love, the partnership, than the wedding," she said. "[It's] so strange cause I didn't expect myself to be one of those people who didn't care about the hoopla, but I really don't."
This is the first marriage for Minaj, who has previously dated rappers Meek Mill and Safaree. She went Instagram official with Petty last December, though the two first met when she was a teenager growing up in Queens. Since confirming their romance, she's defended Petty multiple times, after some fans have criticized their relationship due to his past. Petty was convicted of attempted rape in the first degree in 1995, and years later, he was also convicted of manslaughter and served seven years in prison, TMZ previously reported.
"He was 15, she was 16 ... in a relationship," Minaj defended him on Instagram, referring to his 1995 conviction. "But go awf, internet. y'all can't run my life. Y'all can't even run y'all own life. Thank you boo."
