Carrie Underwood and fiance, hockey player Mike Fisher, made their first official red carpet appearance Monday night at the annual Sens' Soiree fundraiser at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec.

With her hair pulled back in an elegant ponytail, Underwood, 26, smiled and laughed, as Fisher, 29, stood by her side. (For even more shots of the happy couple, pick up the new issue of Us Weekly on newsstands Wednesday!)

The couple confirmed to that they got engaged days before Christmas and are aiming to wed sometime next summer.

How are plans going?

"I bought a lot of magazines and am cutting out pictures," Underwood told Us earlier this month. "I have a folder and I cut out pictures and glue them in. It’s in kind of a binder thing."

She said she isn't sure who she wants to design her dress, but will probably go with "someone I’ve worked with before that I know I can work well with."

She added that she wants something "pretty traditional, maybe with flowers on it -- not like real flowers!"

In a Jan. 2 interview with the Ottawa radio show "Grecosize," she said Fisher has been very involved in all the planning as well.

See how Carrie Underwood's style has changed!

"He jumps in, and he always says he doesn't," said Underwood. "He's like, 'Oh, I don't care. Just whatever you want!'...But then I go and ask him, 'What do you think about this?' and he'll go 'Oh, no,' and he'll weigh in. "I think he's going to be more involved than he initially thought he wanted to be, which is good. I need help."
