This story comes from The Sun UK, one of the worst and most unreliable tabloids out there. But! I want to believe this story. I want to believe that Brad Pitt just returned to LA from France because he went in person to whatever French governmental office to procure a marriage license. I want to believe that Brangelina will marry within the next 90 days. I want to believe that Brad and Angelina are trying to passive-aggressively steal Jennifer Aniston’s thunder, and that the tabloids will finally get their real-life “Battle of the Bridezillas & Groomzillas, Celebrity-Style.” Shhh… let us pray.
GOOD job BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE have the booze sorted for their wedding thanks to their new range of plonk. The rest of their plans for the big day wouldn’t look out of place on an episode of Don’t Tell The Bride.
Brad got a wedding licence at the end of last month — which stated they must marry in 90 days. The deadline could see the big day for the pair clash with the nuptials of Brad’s ex JENNIFER ANISTON — which would spark a bitter bun-fight over celeb guests.
A source said: “Brad and Angelina left themselves short of time to sort out their wedding because of the license deadline. A few months is nothing when you’re planning a wedding — especially one as major as theirs. Everything points to them getting married in May just after the Cannes Film Festival ends, because they’ve got their hearts set on tying the knot in France.”
Jennifer is finalising her plans to walk down the aisle with screenwriter fiancé JUSTIN THEROUX. There was talk she would go to Brad’s wedding, despite him leaving her for Angelina.
But the source added: “All that goodwill would go out the window if Brad’s wedding date comes close to hers. Jennifer will see it as an attempt to upstage her and there will be a battle over Hollywood guests.
“She knows they will be judged on who had the better wedding by pulling in the biggest stars. Jennifer seems miles ahead of Brad when it comes to planning. She’s already picked out her and Justin’s rings, and her dress.”
But Brad was spotted storming around Paris at the weekend, black folder in hand, visiting shops including an interior design consultancy.
He and Angelina are said to have their hearts set on marrying at the chapel on their £35million Chateau Miraval estate in France — where their wine is produced. But stuffy French officials say a law bars couples from tying the knot anywhere except town halls.
I think the whole “battle over wedding guests” thing is crap. I don’t believe Brad and Angelina care about having any A-list guests at their wedding – their wedding will probably just include the kids, Brad’s family, and maybe a handful of their closest friends. And if French laws dictate that the couple needs to marry in a town hall… so be it! That would be very cute, if they just did a simple town hall civil service and then did a big party/reception at their chateau. Why not? As for Jennifer Aniston’s wedding… Hawaii, maybe? Or LA. Or Mexico. Beachy, but she and Justin will have a lot of industry guests and it will be a big “thing”.
