Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger Get Hitched, Throw All-Nighter Wedding

Yahoo Celebrity

It's officially official! Avril Lavigne, 28, and Chad Kroeger, 38, really tied the knot in the South of France on Monday ... although the wedding raged on until Tuesday morning!

The pair's Cannes nuptials were prematurely called over the weekend after Lavigne's rep Mike Heller, CEO of Talent Resources, tweeted Saturday: "I'm in south of France about to see my little Rok star #avril get married I am so happy to be part of this special celebration."

The couple has been hosting friends and family all weekend, kicking off a three-day (technically, four-day) "black-tie fairytale" celebration with a dinner and party Saturday night, which inspired the Heller tweet that launched the confusion.

"Chad and Avril had a very romantic wedding that went all night," sources tell omg!. And "all night" isn't an understatement...

Insiders tell omg! that dinner wasn't even served until 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning and the cake wasn't cut until 3:30 a.m.!

"The party went on until 6 in the morning," continues omg!'s source.

On Monday, which was not so coincidentally Canada Day, the singer and Nickelback frontman finally exchanged vows in a ceremony Lavigne planned herself.

"I've been doing it, I'm the girl," she told Us Weekly in June. "I'm the one who has the crazy vision and he's letting me be me. It's a lot and I just want to make sure I really enjoy this amazing time."

Though the "Here's to Never Growing Up" singer, who plans to release her wedding song (a duet she recorded with Kroeger) now that they've commemorated the occasion, wasn't just thinking of herself when organizing the event.

"I want all the guests who come to have this once in a lifetime experience and I want everyone to say 'Wow!' and for it to be special for everyone, not just us," she said.

But don’t expect those guests to be sharing any photos from the grand event. "No pictures will be sent since this is #avril wedding but I will tell you everyone is excited," Heller said in another tweet.

The rockin' duo, both native Canadians, announced their engagement in August 2012. This is the first marriage for Kroeger and the second for Lavigne, who split from Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley in October 2009.
