Celeb Wedding Inspiration: Avril Lavigne & Deryck Whibley

I know this wedding took place a few years ago, but I think this is a gorgeous ceremony that deserves a post. My favorite part of this wedding is it seems so unexpected. I would expect a punk goth wedding, but it was actually a very romantic tradional wedding. Avril even later admitted that she’d considered a more unusual, goth-style wedding, but had been dreaming about a fairytale wedding since she was a child, and decided to go ahead and treat herself. “I wanted to be a princess,” she said.The ceremony took place outdoors at a private estate in Montecito, California. The event was designed by celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss and the floral arrangements were created by Mark’s Garden.

Avril wore a Vera Wang custom-made ivory strapless tissue organza gown with wrapped bodice and appliqué lace beaded skirt. She carried a bouquet of white roses. Whibley and his five groomsmen wore Boss Black tuxes by Hugo Boss. Avril then changed into a second Vera Wang lace dress for the reception.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds privately exchanged vows they had written themselves and then headed for the dinner and reception. The reception was in tent draped with red fabric. There were red roses, red candles, and red lighting to set the mood.

The newlyweds shared the task of cutting into the four-tiered cake, which was half-chocolate and half-vanilla, reflecting their different tastes.
