Are Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Really Planning a Summer Wedding?

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez’s wedding promises to be one of the biggest Hollywood affairs in recent memory. Though there has been speculation that the couple will choose to have a small, intimate affair, low-key isn’t usually a word associated with the power couple. 

Since the couple announced their engagement in March, fans have been anxious to hear details about the upcoming nuptials. Will the couple have an island wedding? Who will be invited? And are they really having a summer wedding? Read on to find out what we know so far.

Rodriguez and Lopez began dating in 2017 after running into each other at a restaurant. The pair had met previously in 2005, while both were married to their respective spouses. When they reconnected in 2017, the stars both agree that the timing was perfect. However, the couple agreed that they wanted to take things slow as both of them had been married before and had children to consider. 

After two years of dating, the former MLB star proposed to Lopez while on vacation in the Bahamas. Rodriguez reportedly flew to the Bahamas the month prior to practice the proposal to make sure he got things just right. Judging by the pictures that the couple posted of the proposal and the stunning ring, we’d say Rodriguez had nothing to worry about.

At this point, it is highly unlikely that the couple will elect for a summer wedding. Both stars are busy with work for the foreseeable future, with J-Lo preparing to headline her It’s My Party tour and A-Rod busy with his investment company and YouTube channel. While they could still choose to have a summer wedding, the couple’s busy schedule would make it difficult to pick a date. 

Rodriguez recently revealed that he thinks that the fall would be the perfect time for a wedding, noting, “It’s when the World Series happens.” Good Day host Rosanna Scotto joked that the former baseball player may be talking about a fall wedding to keep fans guessing. Rodriguez did not confirm or deny this accusation but simply responded with a laugh. 

Who will be invited to Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s wedding?

Rodriguez and Lopez are two of the biggest names in entertainment. As such, their guest list promises to long and packed with big-name stars. On the bride’s side, we can count on seeing J-Lo’s best friend Leah Remini. The singer maintains a close relationship with her ex and father of her twins, Marc Anthony, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he got an invite as well. Other possible guests include Chip and Joanne Gaines, Pitbull, and Steven Tyler. 

On the groom’s side, we will likely see former teammates of the 14 time All-Star. The former Yankees player recently posted a photo with Magic Johnson on Instagram, calling him a great friend, so there’s a good chance the former basketball player can expect an invite as well. Other potential guests include Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank host Mark Cuban and Sunday Night Baseball co-hosts Matt Vasgersian and Jessica Mendoza.

Of course, the couple’s four children will play a big part in the couple’s wedding. Lopez shares 11-year-old twins Max and Emme with Anthony. Rodriguez has two children of his own — Natasha, age 14, and Ella, age 11 — whom he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. The couple has previously spoken about how their children have bonded since they became a couple and are sure to give them an important role in the ceremony.
