Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have tied the knot in the South of France. The couple got engaged last August and according to sources, the 28-year-old pop-punk princess and her 38-year-old Nickleback singer beau married in a ‘crazy and colorful’ ceremony.
At the Billboard Music Awards last month, Avril told E! News, “We want it to be unique and special and we want it to be a very big event but at the same time it’s small and it’s just close friends and close family.” As far as whether Chad was steering clear of wedding planning, Avril said, “Of course [Chad] has been really involved. He’s also been really cool with just letting me kinda taking the wedding in the direction I want to take it in.”
Chad Kroeger confessed what his secret was to helping out with planning, but allowing his bride to really make the final decisions. He said, “I sit back and I take a lot of the things that are presented to me, and I look at them on paper, and when I’m asked my opinion, I offer it very gently. That’s the smartest thing I can possibly do because that big day is not about me. That big day is about her.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
