In her first television interview since tying the knot with Chad Kroeger, Avril Lavigne opens up to ET Canada about her fairytale wedding!

On why she chose a non-traditional gown to say “I do”: “I really wanted to wear a black wedding dress, so I met with Monique and I didn’t want it to be crazy and puffy. I didn’t want it to wear me… I wanted it to be gothic.”

“We got married in a castle in the South of France… lots of red and black, red roses and candles, we got married really late in the evening,” she adds. “I wanted to get married at midnight, then party to the wee hours in the morning. But we got married around 9 p.m., then we left the castle about 6 or 7 in the morning when the sun was up, which is our style anyway.”

And the Canadian couple chose to get married on Canada Day for more than one reason, telling us, “we started officially dating on Canada Day… so I was like, ‘for sure this is the day we have to get married,’ so it’s our anniversary and it’s Canada Day!”

Find out more about Avril’s special day, when she reveals the wedding gift Chad gave her and some details about their romantic honeymoon in Italy, over at ET Canada.
