Wedding style: Rock concert meets Canada Day
Here comes the bride, all dressed in … black! Lavigne picked out a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown – accented by her bouquet of matching black roses – to wed Nickelback rocker Kroeger on July 1. Although they exchanged vows just outside a 14th-century castle 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 magazine. "I'm obsessed with castles, and I love French décor and goth."
