On a day devoted to celebrating America's independence, Jessica Simpson will be renouncing her own and walking down the aisle for a second time to marry former footballer Eric Johnson.
The countdown is on for Jessica's July 4 nuptials and we now have new details about her sure-to-be-spectacular wedding. "Jessica wants it to be the hugest, grandest event of the year," a source tells In Touch magazine, which printed intel of her Friday affair, to be held at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Size aside, what you really want to know is what will she wear, right?
According to In Touch, Jessica will walk down the aisle in a pink custom-made Marchesa creation. For her first strut down the aisle (with Nick Lachey in 2002), Jess wore white, so the pink gown will mark a dramatic change. Click here for a flashback.
Here's what else we know: Jessica's wedding extravaganza is also slated to include "a barbeque spread and fireworks," reports In Touch.
Although it wasn't noted, we're expecting the couple's two children -- daughter Maxwell and son Ace -- to have significant roles in the nuptials, along with Jessica's younger sister and fellow soon-to-be-bride Ashlee Simpson.
