AVRIL LAVIGNE'S 3rd PERFECT WEDDING
Oh Well 3rd time Lucky - Chavril - Friday 24th August 2012
The news of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger's engagement was a surprise to most of the world. Not many people even knew the two stars were dating. According to People, the relationship developed in the studio while they worked together on Lavigne's new album. Chad popped the big question on August 8 with a stunning 14-carat diamond ring reportedly worth a cool $350,000.
Chavril takes the reign as the new Canadian power couple, from Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. One can but imagine the guest list for the wedding, which may top that of Pierre and Margaret Trudeau.
Speaking of the sparkler, jewellery expert Michael O'Connor told US Weekly:
"A pear shape diamond set in platinum is a nod to vintage glamour and individuality - perfect for a rocker like Avril. The half-moon diamonds are also rare since they would have to be specially cut to fit on either side of the centre diamond. The centre diamond is approximately 10 carats, with an additional four carats of total side diamonds."
The couple have since been spotted in super cuddly mode drinking Dom Pérignon and Grey Goose. Kroeger's, pals have since said that they are the perfect match: "They have the same values and really understand each other. They complement each other and are so happy."
Kroeger said: "I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I'll never forget."
Lavigne said: "He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive."
Avril's marriage to Deryck Whibley lasted a little more than three years. It was announced on 17 September 2009 that Lavigne and Whibley had split up and that divorce papers would soon follow. On 9 October 2009, Lavigne filed for divorce, releasing the statement, "I am grateful for our time together, and I am grateful and blessed for our remaining friendship." The divorce was finalized on 16 November 2010, officially ending her first marriage.
Engagement to Chad Kroeger
In the spring of 2010, Lavigne began dating reality TV personality Brody Jenner. They split in January 2012. She subsequently quietly began dating fellow Canadian rocker Chad Kroeger, frontman of the band Nickelback, in February 2012. The relationship blossomed when they got together to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth album. After six months of dating, Lavigne announced her engagement to Kroeger in August 2012.
Avril Lavigne's perfect wedding - Saturday July 15th, 2006
Avril Lavigne has revealed that she was a bit awkward when it came to her ‘first dance’ with new husband Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley. The couple married at an estate in Montecito on Saturday but when it came to the ‘first dance’ they were a bit flummoxed: “We were on the dance floor hugging and stuff. We never really danced before,” Avril is quoted as saying
“People don’t really do that nowadays. The last time I really danced was at a school dance. I have danced at clubs with my friends, but as far as slow dancing goes, younger people don’t go out and dance and stuff.” They, well, hugged, along to ‘Iris’ by The Goo Goo Dolls because it’s Avril’s “favourite song in the world. It’s just a pretty ballad.”

Aside from the dance, the day went just as she had hoped: “it was perfect and beautiful. I’m used to going on stage and stuff but this was totally different. It was more exciting. It was the biggest moment of my life”. “I almost started crying as soon as I started walking down the first set of stairs. And I just told myself: ‘You can’t cry now, it’s the beginning.’ So I had to hold it all in and I wanted to keep my composure. And I did.”
Avril also denied rumours that the wedding was brought forward because she is pregnant: “Oh God no! Not for awhile. Eventually. Down the road.” Guests took home guitar picks with the bride and groom's name, and custom gift boxes. I wonder how long it will take before they hit eBay.
