Here comes the bride, all dressed in … black! For her "rock concert meets Canada Day"-style wedding, Lavigne picked out a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown – accented by a bouquet of matching black roses – to wed Nickelback rocker Kroeger on July 1, 2013. Although they exchanged vows just outside the 14th-century Château de la Napoule in the South of France, the decision to marry on Canada Day was a nod to their native country. "I wanted it to be over-the-top," Lavigne told Hello. "I'm obsessed with castles, and I love French decor and goth."
