Avril Lavigne, Chad Kroeger Wed in South of France!
Why July 1? According to People magazine, it’s a nod to their native country … July 1 is Canada Day. The date also marks their one-year-anniversary.
But they didn’t tie the knot there. Instead, Avril, 28, and Chad, 38, said “I do” in the South of France.
A source tells Us Weekly that the reception was so fun, it lasted until 6 a.m. the following morning. “It was a wild, all-night party with drinking, dancing, incredible food and lots of laughter and tears of happiness.”
Although there aren’t too many details on the guest list just yet, the “Here’s to Never Growing Up” singer did tell On Air with Ryan Seacrest in April that it was going to be “a lot of close friends and family, it’s sort of smaller but it’s going to be quite spectacular. There’s a theme to it, we’re going pretty big; but Chad doesn’t even know everything yet!”
At the time, she also revealed how the Nickelback frontman proposed after just one month of dating.
As she walked into the studio where they had been working on her upcoming album, he was putting a picture in to her scrapbook, “And I was like ‘What is he doing?’… And all of a sudden I walk over and he had taken a photo of himself holding the ring box and put the Polaroid in my scrapbook and because I had stickers everywhere he put in ‘Will you marry me?’ It was really romantic.”
