Rock ‘n’ roll love! After about a year-long engagement Avril and Chad are ready to tie the knot, throwing a party for their upcoming nuptials in Cannes, France on June 29.
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have almost made it official. The couple reportedly threw a wedding party in Cannes, France on June 29 to celebrate their upcoming wedding on July 1. They are about to become the most famous Canadian rocker husband and wife (at least in our minds).
Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger Throw ‘Wedding Party’
Though it was initially reported that the two musicians tied the knot in a “very intimate affair” on June 29, a source clarified that Avril, 28, and Chad, 38, are “technically not married yet,” according to Us Weekly. The Cannes party on June 29 was just to kick off all the ceremonies, which will culminate on July 1 when Avril and Chad officially wed. “It’s extremely intimate, just close friends and family,” a source tells Us.
Looks like it’s time to hear that wedding song — the singer revealed that she and Chad recorded a new song together that would be their ceremonial tune in an interview with Nylon magazine. “We’ll have to release it after,” she said.
Avril also revealed that she has been doing all the planning for the big day. “I’m the one who has the crazy vision and he’s letting me be me. It’s a lot and I just want to make sure I really enjoy this amazing time,” the singer said.
She also added, “I want all the guests who come to have this once in a lifetime experience and I want everyone to say ‘Wow!’ and for it to be special for everyone, not just us.” We’re sure she accomplished that mission — on the secret wedding location in Cannes, Avril explained it as “out of control.”
Chad and Avril announced their engagement in August 2012. This will be Chad’s first marriage and Avril’s second. She was previously married to Deryk Whibley of Sum 41 for three years before divorcing in 2009.
We’re so happy for this rock ‘n’ roll couple!
