It's been a while since we first started hearing that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux would be tying the knot very soon, and still no word on when, how, or where the nuptials will actually take place. Sure, the celeb couple may just be keeping their plans under extremely tight wraps, and if that's the case, who could blame 'em? But multiple sources tell People that although plans for the Big Day were in full swing -- wedding bands were designed, Jen was deciding on a dress, and she was thinking this spring would be it -- now, "wedding talk has stopped," to quote.
But before jumping to conclusions that it has anything to do with Brangelina or the couple's romance being on the rocks, deeeep breath. Those who are apparently in the know claim the reason behind postponing isn't cause for concern ...
Reportedly, they're waiting to wed because both of 'em have upcoming gigs in the coming weeks, and construction delays messed with the redesign timeline for their $21 million estate in Bel Air. In other words, "there are other priorities [besides marriage]," explains a source who knows the couple professionally.
Another source reiterates, that with their crazed work schedules and "the challenges of combining their lifestyles," "they need to figure out a way to create a life that makes them both happy." But don't worry, because "Jen can't wait to be [Justin's] wife." Aww!
See, let's not get all bent out of shape here, eh? The fact that they haven't gotten married lickety split (or even when they initially planned to) is no reason to worry. Jen and Justin have only been engaged for 10 months. That's nothing. (Especially in Hollywood!) I'm guessing there really is no cause for concern ... As long as the pair is actually on the same page about how big a priority it is to say "I do," what's the big deal?
Ultimately, that's what it boils down to. When you're engaged and planning a wedding, sometimes it really does feel like it's you two against the world. But that's a good thing. You could find yourself facing drama with family members, annoying circumstances (like moving, renovating, other living situation issues), financial setbacks, all of which could throw your original game plan into a tailspin, etc. But as long as you can get through the challenges as a united front and are both on the same page about when and how you're going to end up Mr. and Mrs., that's all that matters.
That said, I'm sure J&J will be more than thrilled if they get hitched next week or six months from now. Whatever works! As far as I see it, as long as they're happy, there's no reason for them to feel like they have to race to the altar!
Do you always assume postponed wedding plans means trouble in paradise? Were you and your partner on the same page about the timing of your wedding?
