Avril Lavigne is getting married to Chad Kroeger in Cannes, France, because it is her "favourite place to be".

Avril Lavigne (28) is getting married in her "favourite place to be".

The Here's To Never Growing Up singer is set to tie the knot with Chad Kroeger (38) in Cannes, France, today and kicked off her three-day celebration on Saturday with a huge rehearsal dinner bash.

A source close to the 28-year-old Canadian star told E! News, "[Avril] picked Cannes because she's spent significant time in Paris in the past few years and summered in places like St Tropez. She's very immersed in French food, ambience and culture. It's her favourite place to be."

The insider revealed there wouldn't be many celebrity guests at the couple's lavish wedding but former X Factor USA judge LA Reid is expected to attend.

The singer and the Nickleback frontman are keeping the location of their nuptials a closely guarded secret and guests will only find out after they’re picked up at their hotel and driven to the venue this evening.

The singer, who split from her first husband, Deryck Whibley, in 2010, previously revealed she moved to France for four months after their divorce to spend some time alone.

She said, "I got there and I didn't know anyone. I booked French classes with Berlitz, five days a week, and I thought worst-case scenario if I don't met anybody I'll just be doing school every day.

"But I did [meet people]; I met a lot of people. It was cool. I felt like a little girl. I felt really like myself again. It was my first time ever being alone and quiet."
