Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards are reportedly planning to wed in June 2014 in a lavish ceremony. The couple only announced their engagement last month, but heat magazine have reported that they are both keen to set a date for their upcoming nuptials, looking at next summer because they are both so busy with their careers. 20-year-old Zayne and his band One Direction will finish their world tour Take Me Home in October and have already planned to make a third album in October and a world tour in 2014. Meanwhile, Perrie’s band Little Mix will be releasing their second album in the next few months.
Their Wedding Plan
In spite of their chaotic schedules the couple is keen to start planning their wedding and have been looking huge venues with a capacity for up to 480 guests. Prospective venues include Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin where David and Victoria Beckham tied the knot in 1999 and Skibo Castle in Scotland where Madonna and Guy Ritchie married in 2000.
The Best Song Ever singer whose band is reportedly worth £15 million each has set an extravagant budget of £1.2 million for the nuptials and is determined to give his blonde lover the greatest wedding ever.
Perrie, 20, has set her sights on a stunning white wedding gown designed by Vera Wang and wants her bandmates, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, to act as her bridesmaids while One Direction will be groomsmen. Zayn will have the tough task of picking one of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson or Liam Payne to be best man, but allegedly Niall is certain he will be the one. While the boys will be involved, there will reportedly be no singing by the band on the menu.
While Perrie is Christian, Zayn has been brought up Muslim and the pair are said to be keen to involve both religions in the ceremony. Zayn’s mom Patricia, converted to Islam when she married Yaser (Zayn’s dad), so Perrie’s been asking about what this involves. She’s hoping to talk over her plans with a priest and a Muslim officiant, an insider previously told British magazine Look. She’s even weighing up having a ceremony that combines both religions. She loves the idea of coming down the aisle to traditional Muslim music. Flowers blessed with rosewater play a big part in Islamic weddings and Perrie thinks she could work this into their day, too.
