As if Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s revived romance wasn’t enough to transport us back to 2004, the pair one upped us by becoming engaged—again—in 2022, certifying that the wedding of the year is yet to come.
And indeed, it will. Plans are now underway for the pair’s nuptials, and while no date is set just yet (according to reports), there are plenty of other details we do know.
The pair first set the wedding bell-adorned rumour mill spinning in early April when JLo was spotted wearing a sizeable ring. She quickly addressed the rumours in her newsletter, sharing a short video of herself with the stunning green sparkler.
“Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?” JLo wrote in the newsletter, revealing that Affleck had proposed to the singer and actor while in the bath.
“Saturday night while at my favourite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed. I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I said ‘YES of course that’s a YES.'”
Below, everything we know about their wedding plans so far.
When will JLo and Ben Affleck get married?
According to US Weekly, the pair have not set a date for the big day—but sources have suggested it won’t be far off.
“Jennifer will tell you she’s not in a rush to get married, but her friends think otherwise,” an unnamed sourced told the publication.
“The truth is that if Ben wanted to push this forward as early as this summer, she’d be totally down with that,” they added.
What are JLo and Affleck planning?
According to the source, JLo wants to go big, and money will not be an object.
“She definitely wants a spectacular celebration at some point and money won’t be an object,” the insider claimed, adding that both Affleck and JLo are “both committed to making this work and taking all the steps necessary to respect each other’s boundaries and learn from their mistakes the last time around.”
Which guests will attend?
While there’s no word just yet on who may or may not have already received ‘save the date’ invites, we can deduce a shortlist from their rumoured wedding guest list from 2004.
According to EW, the pair had no less than 400 people earmarked to attend their naughties nuptials. That list included Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Colin Farrell, and Matthew Perry. The outlet reported that Affleck’s younger brother and fellow actor Casey Affleck, was poised to be his best man.
As the date draws closer, we’ll no doubt hear more about their guests this time around. Stay tuned—we’ll update with more details as they’re revealed.
