Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger will wed Monday, July 1 in Cannes, France, Us Weekly reports. The couple kicked off the celebration early with a party thrown Friday, as part of the big ‘do that Lavigne has planned.

“I’m going to go all=out this time, and there’s going to be like a theme, and I want to have a lot of fun with it and kind of go nuts this time,” Lavigne said on Chelsea Lately earlier this year. (She kept mum on other details, but as Us points out, wedding planner Mindy Weiss has been posting photos from Cannes.)

Lavigne and Kroeger’s wedding song will be a track that they wrote together, which will be released after the wedding. The couple announced their engagement in August 2012 after they wrote songs for Lavigne’s new album (featuring 2013 Song Of The Summer contender “Here’s to Never Growing Up”). The LP is now due out September.

Avril and Chad secretly dated for six months. “He’s Canadian, and I’m Canadian, and we have a lot in common,” Lavigne said of their relationship on Chelsea Lately.
