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, and make it very special so there's a lot that goes on with planning a wedding," 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.
The 28-year-old also revealed that she never got to go to a prom - until she shot the music video for the song.
"That was way more fun than I anticipated. It's the first prom I ever attended, so I did it right. I got my crown on," she said. "I'm pretty impressed with the set. It looks really cool. The director thought of the concept, which was prom, and I thought that was pretty neat because we can all dress up and the band can wear tuxedos."
Here's To Never Growing Up is released in the UK on June 16.
