Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are in the midst of wedding planning, Entertainment Tonight reports, and their eyes are set on some place warm and outside of Los Angeles. A source told the outlet, “Ben and Jen want to get married soon. They are talking about having a destination or tropical wedding. They can’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together forever, happily in love. [They are also] excited to unify their families even further.”
Entertainment Tonight’s update comes shortly after a source told Us Weekly that Lopez would happily get married to Affleck this summer if he wanted to tie the knot that soon too.
“Jennifer will tell you she’s not in a rush to get married, but her friends think otherwise,” a source told Us. “The truth is that if Ben wanted to push this forward as early as this summer, she’d be totally down with that.”
“[She] wants the formalities out of the way so they can start their journey as man and wife sooner rather than later,” the source added. “She definitely wants a spectacular celebration at some point and money won’t be an object! They’re 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.”
Lopez hasn’t said anything about her wedding plans yet. In April, a source told Page Six that the couple will likely keep their exact ceremony details private. “After the last time [they got engaged], there won’t be any announcements of when and where they are getting married.
They will just do it and then announce,” the source said. For context, when Lopez and Affleck were first engaged and preparing to get married in September 2003, they called off their wedding because of the media attention surrounding it. They ultimately broke up in January 2004.
