We can't say we're surprised that Avril Lavigne got married in a black wedding dress—in fact, we think it's quite fitting for the queen of punk rock. On July 1 (Canada Day!), she wed Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger in an intimate castle (!!!) ceremony in the south of France. Hello! Canada magazine debuted the first photos from the big day, which featured Avril in a strapless, black sweetheart Monique Lhuillier tulle gown with a black bouquet of roses and a diamond headband. She sported her signature smudgy black eye shadow with nude lips and effortless beachy blonde waves.
When Avril married Sum 41's Deryck Whibley back in 2006, she went for an all-out traditional ceremony with a girly white gown and super long veil. Oddly enough, she told Jane magazine, "I wanted to be like, 'Oh, let's totally have a rock 'n' roll, goth wedding. But at the same time I was like, 'I've been dreaming about my wedding day since I was a little girl. I have to wear the white dress.' I wanted to be a princess, okay?" She continued, "People thought I would have done, like, some black wedding dress, and yeah, I would have. But at the same time I was thinking about our pictures. ... I didn't want to be, like, 20 years later, 'Oh, why did I wear my hair like that? It's not cool now.' " Oh, how the tides have turned! But tell us—what do you think of Avril's all-black wedding ensemble? Let us know in the comments below!
