Four months after legally (and secretly) tying the knot in a Manhattan courthouse, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are starting to make plans for their big Christian wedding ceremony, which will happen … at some point.
While Baldwin and Bieber “realized that they actually felt like husband and wife without having a religious ceremony,” a source told People after the couple’s September marriage (which did not involve a prenup), insiders recently told “Page Six” that the young lovebirds are still going through with the big celebration. The details of the event, however, seem to change on a daily basis. Below, here’s everything we know about the future wedding ceremony.
When is the ceremony?
No one really knows! The date keeps shifting. In mid-January, “Page Six” reported that the couple’s “Save the Date” said the Los Angeles ceremony would be on February 28. Then, just two days later, a conflicting TMZ report claimed the wedding would take place over the weekend of March 1 — which just so happens to be Bieber’s 25th birthday. At this point, it didn’t seem like the couple would push back their ceremony any longer; a source told TMZ that Bieber aspires to be married before turning the ripe age of 25.
But according to a new report from TMZ, the couple has delayed the ceremony again, making this their fourth Save the Date. Except … there doesn’t appear to be a new date. Apparently, sources told TMZ that guests were notified on Tuesday that the couple would not be getting married in just over a month, as the Biebers were upset that certain loved ones couldn’t make it to Los Angeles that weekend.
So, who knows what’s going on. Last September, Baldwin told the Cut that she was drawn to more natural settings on the West Coast, and that she thought “having it in the woods would be so beautiful.” But now, sources are saying that the couple is considering having a destination wedding, and not anytime soon.
“Justin and Hailey both love tropical destinations,” a source told People. “They are currently looking into options for a tropical wedding … it seems it will happen in April, or May instead.”
But let’s give them a break — maybe they’re too busy Doing It to nail down a plan. In Vogue’s March issue, the Biebers revealed that before they got married, they didn’t bone, which is one reason why they rushed to the courthouse. We’ll check back in with them when their libidos are a little lower.
What can we expect when it does eventually happen?
A big Christian wedding, where guests can simultaneously partake in the married couple’s favorite pastimes: praying and partying. There will apparently be dancers (who are already rehearsing!) and Bieber’s personal DJ, Tay James, will be behind the music. And while we know nothing about the dress, Baldwin told the Cut that she already had a designer picked out — time to start speculating!
Who’s on the guest list?
Bieber and Baldwin apparently sent out 300 invites. (If they have a destination wedding, though, this number is sure to decrease.) Per TMZ, some confirmed invitees include Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, as well as Drake, Chris Brown, and Odell Beckham Jr. It remains unclear which Baldwin family members will be going — certainly Alaia and Ireland Baldwin, both of whom will be bridesmaids. And though plans may have changed, Baldwin told the Cut last September that the couple was thinking of having Bieber’s little sister Jazmyn be the flower girl, as long as the 10-year-old isn’t “too old” to have that role.
In an etalk interview, Baldwin’s uncle, Billy, revealed who else we can expect to see at the wedding — mainly, the KarJenners.
“Who’s going to be tearing up the dance floor?” he said. “It’s going to be Hailey and all of her Kardashian girlfriends. Gigi [Hadid] and Kendall [Jenner] and all the rest.”
