Christian Slater’s Going to Get Married In His Back Yard

Christian Slater hasn’t necessarily been all that lucky in love, but things are looking up, as he’s set to marry his fiancée Brittany Lopez in July. One might assume that a big star like Christian might want a big celebrity wedding that costs millions and includes hundreds of guests, but one would be wrong (or something), because he’s holding this shindig in your back yard.

From People:

“It will be good, intimate and small and family members. It will be nice,” Slater told PEOPLE at ABC’s New York City upfront on Tuesday.

The Mind Games actor, 43, revealed that he and Lopez are planning a backyard affair for their July nuptials.

“Honestly, you gotta get a planner and do all that, but we will get it organized. We had a big engagement party on the 31st of December and it was nice, it was like a New Year’s and we had all the family come, 200 people, so it kind of already feels like we did the wedding, so we are just going to do a nice backyard situation,” he said.

Aw, well that’s sweet. Congrats to Christian Slater and his almost wife.

  • Huzzah! Anything that is not-Hollywood is a good thing. I am divorced now, and we had the big wedding for us-in very proper Richmond, VA, Wedding planners-jeez, I planned ours, and I could not have been any more anal retentive than a wedding planner would have been-150 people, not shabby,
    Still, one of the the things I wished we had done was spent more time enjoying our friends and family and less time (and money) on the ceremony itself. Sounds like the engagement party was the event-probably pretty swanky-200 people means a lot of mingling and short hellos, but at least they celebrated with their friends. Now they can concentrate just on the ceremony of union-a very good idea, in retrospect.
    ….and then bring out the Coronas pony bottles on ice, throw on some tunes and yes, have a Bar-B-Q with their family and very closest friends.
