Avril Lavigne's Wedding Dress Is Black And Fabulous (PHOTOS)

We knew Avril Lavigne wouldn't wear a traditional wedding gown so we were a bit surprised when photos of the "Complicated" singer surfaced showing the punk-rock star in a floor-length white lace dress.

Luckily, it turned out that that dress was only for the rehearsal (don't you know that Canadian celebs need to have several gowns for their wedding?) and Avril actually wore a strapless black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown at the ceremony (with matching black flowers, natch.)

Hello! Canada magazine reports that Lavigne and new hubby, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, celebrated their nuptials with a three-day extravaganza which included a yacht party and a ceremony at Chateau La Napoule in Mandelieu, France.

"I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests," said Avril. We almost feel as if we were there! (But seriously, where was our invite?)

The couple, who got engaged last August, admitted that although they were both excited about planning their wedding, it was Deryck Whibley's ex-wife who took the reins.

"I've been planning this wedding for a really long time," Avril told Hello! Canada. "I showed him everything and he let me take the reins and bounce ideas off of him."

We can't wait to see how Chavril will dress their future children. We're thinking Chucks, mini pink ties, spiked headbands and lots of eyeliner.
