Avril Lavigne wore a black Monique Lhullier wedding gown: try-hard or totes punk?

As it turned out, we were a little bit premature in declaring Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger married on Sunday. They actually got married on Monday, Canada Day. They did marry in France, which is interesting, I guess, and they did extend their wedding celebrations to include basically four days of partying. Above is the official wedding portrait – apparently, Chad and Avril sold their exclusive wedding photos to Hello Mag. I would love to know how much they went for. Maybe a cool $1 million? Something like that, I bet.

Avril wore a black wedding dress by Monique Lhullier, and while that’s definitely “try-hard,” it’s also not that offensive to me. Fun fact: Sarah Jessica Parker wore black to her wedding to Matthew Broderick too. You can see another photo of Avril in her black wedding gown here. It seems to be a rather standard strapless gown with a big, tulle skirt. Again, not that offensive to me. What does offend me is the eye-makeup. That’s not “punk rock”. It’s just ugly, and it looks like she’s sweating or crying off her makeup. You can also see photos of Chad and Avril’s pre-wedding rehearsal or something here – to that, Avril wore a much more traditional white gown.

After Avril and Chad said their vows at the Chateau La Napoule in Mandelieu, France, they had a fireworks show. Sure. Why not throw a huge party if you can afford it? The reception was described by one source as a “wild, all-night party with drinking, dancing, incredible food and lots of laughter and tears of happiness.”

One last thing… does she have a bouquet of black roses?!!? That’s so… unusual.

    Eh, not unexpected. She should have carried Dahlias or tulips if she was gonna go black, tho.

  2. shruti says:

    She She does actually look age appropriate in the cover.

  3. janie says:

    She looks cute! I thought she was pregnant, or maybe it was a false alarm? She tried to hard with the make up… but she is a rocker! I wish them well!

  4. Sisi says:

    is it just me or do those flowers look totally photoshopped?

    the fact that I find the flowers more interesting than the couple should speak for itself

  5. Erinn says:

    Something nice…I like her headband thing.

    I honestly can’t stand either of them. Why does my country have to pump out so many obnoxious singers? At least the Baby Biebs pictures have entertainment value, I guess.

  6. Arock says:

    Ugh, those extensions. The eye make up all the time makes her look 13 going on ass-y or 35 w/ daddy issues.

  7. Bianca says:

    It’s embarrassing, but I used to love her when I was like 12 and her first album came out. I knew all the lyrics by heart, and that’s quite something since I didn’t speak much English then.

  8. bns says:

    Try-hard, of course. And why does Nickelback look so waxy?

  9. Anna says:

    Seems like an awesome party, actually. But what surprised me the most is how similar her overall styling was to her 1st wedding – the dress, the hair, the bouquet. Almost identical – except in black.

  10. Mandy says:

    She always wears her eye makeup that way. No big surprise. The black dress doesn’t offend me either. Whatevs, different strokes I guess.

  11. Assistantrachel says:

    A marriage made in crappy music heaven.

  12. mi says:

    I hope she gets her nickle back from the “make-up artist” who made her look like that. *see what I did there? ba-dun-zih*
    Honestly though, Id like to know what kind of music do they listen to when they’re home alone. She look so try-hard and he looks botoxy. Yuck.

  13. Elisabeth says:

    I have a feeling this look is here to stay for her. at 30,40,50 etc…

  14. annaloo. says:

    She is not, never has been and never will be “punk”! Punky Brewster, MAYBE. But not punk!

  15. Cam S says:

    If the wedding was “secret” then why is it plastered on the front page of a gossip mag?

    I remember seeing her first wedding in all the gossip mags. Can’t stand it when my friends that have a big to do first wedding, then have ANOTHER big deal for their second marriage. I flat out told one girlfriend (on her 3rd marriage/wedding) to stick that “bridal registry” card up her behind! Get over yourselves. How may gifts you think you gonna get from me? Maybe she should focus more on the marriage itself than the wedding? Side eye to you Jennifer Lopez! I think it is tacky.

    And those black flowers look like something some goth 14 year old would dream up.

  16. momma says:

    it’s just creepy, she looks like his daughter..i really hope they are happy -sigh- marriage is more than a beautiful black dress, trashy makeup and some rotten flowers…how long do we give this…? 1-2 years..frik!

  17. Nicolette says:

    My daughter absolutely loves Avril, so on her behalf I’ll say congrats!

  18. L says:

    Considering her first wedding had the big fluffy traditional vera wang gown with a big train, pink flowers, and pink bridesmaids-I’m down with her going for something more out there and non-traditional this time. Why repeat something she’s already done?

    As much as I dislike them, it is his first marriage and if he wants a big to do-then fine. Guys are allowed to want that stuff to.

  19. Andrea says:

    There is NO WAY Hello Magazine Canada paid $1 million for these photos. It’s the Canaidian version of Hello UK filled with B and C Level Canadian Celebs. Example of usual Hello Canada offers, and entire 10 page spread on the former Prime Minister’s first grand child. Very boring stuff! I would be surprised if they we’re paid at all. But if they we’re I’s say $20k TOPS! I live in Canada … No one reads it!

  20. marie says:

    Were you able to type “totes punk” without laughing?

  21. Lemony says:

    She looks the same as she always does.
    His head looks like a waxed pineapple.
    Black weddings dresses can be tres elegant. A girlfriend of my sister’s just got married in London & wore a black lace gown. It was stunning! She carried midnight red roses & wore a little black net that swooped from her chignon across her forehead.

  22. wonderwoman21 says:

    Once their baby is born the trifecta will be complete and the earth shall split open and spit fire!!!!

  23. Chuzpah says:

    The thing I find creepiest is that they look like siblings – they have the same weird mouth!

  24. some bitch says:

    Their kid is going to have an absolutely terrifying voice.

  25. lettylynton says:

    I read an interview about her first wedding and it sounded like she was doing what she thought she should do vs. what she wanted. So, if this is what she wanted for her wedding, I am happy for her. I like the overall look; they both look very happy and that’s most important. I like the black wedding dress and flowers.

    • Laura says:

      I agree! They look happy and I like her wedding look — it’s unique to her and she obviously felt comfortable with the way she looks, so that’s all that matters.

      I’m Canadian and happen to enjoy both of their musical styles. I know that’s not a popular opinion but whatever.

      Congrats to the happy couple!

  26. NEENAZEE says:

    I don’t even have to read the post… try-hard.

  27. JH says:

    I really like them as a couple. He comes across as sweet and surprisingly undouchy.

  28. Relli says:

    You know that Racoon Mcpantless saw this spread and screamed “b!tch stole my look AND my dream wedding.”

  29. TheTruthHurts says:

    Ew. She’s still a tryhard Hot Topic poster girl.

  30. ParisPucker says:

    douche marries douche

  31. TheWendyNerd says:

    Everything about Avril Lavigne is try-hard and the opposite of all things punk, and rock and roll, for that matter.

  32. dcypher1 says:

    I actually love the black dress and roses I think its pretty. I guess since its her second wedding she probably felt like she couldn’t wear white lol.

  33. mwow says:

    It’s funny that she thinks she’s so punk rock and married the cheesiest, most vanilla mainstream ‘rocker’ out there. Remember when she was the biggest thing ever? It’s weird how her sound hasn’t held up at all. I always wondered if it was because she had such a bad attitude. There was no staying power there, and also I guess if your core audience is 12, they move on pretty quickly.

  34. Jennifer12 says:

    How can you use the phrase “totes punk”? John Lydon and Legs McNeil, where are you? Avril, Taylor Momsen, Kristen Stewart…. they’re all the same. A bunch of silly ass try hards who are convinced that they’re punk, edgy, hip and hardcore (please see Arianna Foster for that). She basically inverted her first wedding, the princess theme that she said she wanted but felt funny about (because she’s “totes punk”) and made her second wedding a dark princess one. Coloring everything black doesn’t make you edgy.

  35. diva says:

    I actually like her black dress better than Jessica Biel’s pink wedding dress. Pink is my favorite color so you have to really screw up for me not to like something pink lol. Her eye makeup is horrendous though. They could have done some many other looks with her makeup.

  36. lola lola says:

    Silly trite little girl…

  37. nancypants says:

    I’ll just say that the black dress doesn’t completely freak me out but the black dress AND black flowers do.

    Couldn’t she have used white roses with a tiny bit of black or pink roses with a tiny bit of black instead?

    I’m probably just being a mom.

  38. Kristen says:

    Ugh. This b****. She needs a new look. Badly.

  39. Nina W says:

    Don’t like the raccoon eyes or all the black. Nothing elegant about it and it seems over done at this point. I’m sick of strapless wedding gowns altogether and I hate fake flowers, why even bother with the bouquet when it looks so cheap? Still I suppose they had what they wanted and the party sounds like fun, I hope they are happy together.

  40. Str8Shooter says:

    I thought this racoon was roadkill a long time ago!!!

    She is a complete IDIOT. I’m sorry, but anyone who claims they are ‘punk’ but doesn’t know who The RAMONES are has no right to say that.

    And he just SUCKS.

    Best of luck!

    • TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

      Yes to the Ramones, I bet she doesn’t even know who they are, and back in the day they were almost as big in there own way at CBGB’s and other spots as the WHo, or queen and zeppelin; and yes relli, when a comparison with racoon mcpantless (where’d her “music” career go) is apt, you know you’ve become a cheeseball celebutard of the first order; I can’t believe someone hasn’t mentioned dainty Avril’s spitting espisode – reason enough to laugh at and despise her.

  41. Jay Elle says:

    Love the dress… but Avril needs to grow up big time.

  42. mimi says:

    The black wedding gown is fine and acceptable, but her eye makeup is so wrong. It’s your wedding, girl!

    The really important thing is that he will treat her right and I hope he does, as I’m assuming next will be children, and she will need a good husband for that.

  43. My brother advised I could like that web-site. Your dog was once totally appropriate. This kind of offered definitely built my own day. You cann’t consider only how the lot moment I did wasted just for this facts! Thanks a lot!
