I know we all thought Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger were tying the knot in France on Saturday, but it actually happened on Monday, which was Canada Day, because of course their love is bigger than a national holiday. They apparently had a Canada-themed wedding extravaganza that kicked off on Saturday in Cannes and culminated in a big ceremony yesterday (which we have no actual reports of just yet).
Here’s what we do know, from E! News:
The couple’s three-day wedding celebration kicked off last night in the South of France in Cannes with a rehearsal dinner, a wedding source tells E! News.
“[Avril] picked Cannes because she’s spent significant time in Paris in the past few years and summered in places like St. Tropez,” the source said. “She’s very immersed in French food, ambiance and culture. It’s her favorite place to be.”
While the pair isn’t expecting a ton of celebs at their affair, former X Factor judge L.A. Reid is expected to attend the duo’s nuptials.
The actual ceremony will be held Monday night at an undisclosed location, and according to the source, not even the guests know where they’re going just yet.
They’re all being picked up from a location in Cannes and driven to the wedding venue.
Well, that’s… exciting. I’m sure they had a grand old time.
