Later that evening, they hosted a party at Keira's family's farmhouse in Provence. Keira wore a short dress paired with a chic jacket for the nuptials. In fact, Keira's Chanel dress was first seen on her in 2008! She polished off the look with a headpiece made of flowers.

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger [13] tied the knot in the South of France on July 1, 2013, after a few days of festivities with friends and family. Although the ceremony took place abroad, the couple chose to marry on Canada Day, July 1, in honor of their native country. Avril wore a flowing white dress and flower crown for the prewedding event, while Chad was dressed up in a suit. For the nuptials, however, Avril changed into a strapless black gown.

Over their destination wedding [14] weekend, Chad and Avril also spent an afternoon in the sun lounging on a yacht, where Avril enjoyed one of France's best pleasures: Rosé wine. While the couple announced their plans to divorce in September 2015 [15], they've recently been spending a lot of time together [16], leading some fans to believe they've reconciled.
