After almost two years of dating and a six-month engagement, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are nearly ready to tie the knot. They’ve set the date, picked out their wedding bands, and Jennifer is narrowing down her choices of gowns. But don’t expect their big day to be a huge blowout like her and Brad Pitt’s 2000 nuptials.
“It will be a small affair with their closest friends,” a source close to Jennifer reveals to PEOPLE. While the date of her wedding remains a mystery (and likely will until it takes place), it will likely be after she wraps filming on an untitled Elmore Leonard project based on his novel The Switch.
Meanwhile, Jennifer and Justin are enjoying each other’s company and looking forward to married life. “Jen seems more confident than ever,” says the source, “and they’ve become a great team.”
Recently, Jennifer and Justin reportedly attended a “marriage bootcamp” to make sure that their minds were clear before making the commitment to wed. “Jen and Justin are super excited about their big day,” a source told HollyScoop. “But she thought it would be a good idea to start married life rid of any problems.”
Jennifer and Justin first went public with their relationship in May of 2011. Then, on Justin’s 41st birthday (August 10, 2012), Justin proposed.
Prior to dating Jennifer, Justin was in a 14 year relationship with Hollywood costume designer Heidi Bivens who has styled for films such as “The Wait,” “Ceremony” and “Dedication” (which Justin directed).
FUN FACT: Justin turned down a screen test for the Friends pilot.
