Avril Lavigne said Chad Kroeger let her "take the reins" when it came to planning their wedding — and she turned it into a true rock 'n' roll celebration, complete with a black dress. The "Here's to Never Growing Up" singer went the nontraditional dress route for her second trip up the aisle, donning a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown for her July 1 wedding to the Nickelback singer in the South of France. It was strapless and featured a full bottom. The 28-year-old's long hair, which was loosely curled, cascaded down her back, and she had on light-catching jeweled crown-type headpiece. It seemed fitting as the wedding took place at Chateau de la Napoule, a medieval castle near Canne. So she had a true princess moment. Kroeger matched his bride in black. In the photographs taken outside their wedding venue — as they watched a fireworks on a balcony — he had on a  suit in the dark hue and the same color button-down shirt. (7/1/2013)
