Avril Lavigne has revealed she has had a hand in preparing her second wedding because she wants it to be "extraordinary".
The Canadian singer has enlisted the help of a wedding planner for her upcoming nuptials with rocker Chad Kroeger, but is also intent on putting her own mark on the ceremony.
"I have a wedding planner but I want to do something quite extraordinary and unique," she told E! News.
She joked that her diamond sparkler is now her "favourite accessory", adding: "It's crazy, I'm really excited. I got engaged in August, so between planning the wedding and the new single, there's lots going on."
Avril and the Nickelback frontman started dating when they met to co-write her new single, Here's To Never Growing Up, and they announced their engagement in August.
"Chad and I met in the studio, and that's how we all started.
"We were friends and we were goofing off, being silly and just having a really good time. We have a lot of fun together. He's a really good songwriter and I've learned a lot from him," she explained.
