It may be old news that rock chick Avril Lavigne and rock bloke Deryck Whibley tied the rock knot last July, but it’s only recently come to light that Avril faced a real internal struggle trying to decide whether to opt for an alternative or a classic white wedding.
She originally thought they would have a rock’n’roll/goth type affair with her sporting a black dress, but after a lot of soul searching she decided that she wanted something more classic, that she wouldn’t regret in 20 years. She ended up in an ivory Vera Wang gown no less, and was escorted down the aisle to old favourite Mendelssohn’s Wedding March. Not an air guitar in sight!
Her bridesmaids also wore Vera Wang petal pink crepe chiffon gowns, and Deryck and his bestman wore Hugo Boss. As if Vera didn’t get enough exposure at the actual ceremony Avril whipped out a second Wang dress in Chantilly lace for the reception, where in vague rock style the couple had their first dance to ‘Iris’ by the Goo Goo Dolls. I guess for some people rock’n’roll isn’t a way of life, it’s just a day job!
