Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux to wed in the winter

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have finally fixed upon a date for their fairytale wedding.

The couple, who were thought to be marrying this summer, have now reportedly chosen a date in December for their big day.

A source close to screenwriter Justin described the decision as a "breakthrough" for the busy couple, who have now removed "the main source of uncertainty" surrounding their nuptials.



Along with setting the date, Jennifer and Justin are also said to have chosen LA suburb Bel Air, where they live in a stunning 8,500sq ft mansion, as the glamorous location for their wedding.

"Jen and Justin have gone back and forth on where to marry," a source told the MailOnline.

"And whether to have a destination wedding so many times.

"Jen has always made it clear LA was her first choice," added the source. "Justin has compromised and agreed to marry in California."


Justin, 41, had previously been reluctant to commit to a wedding in LA, where Jennifer grew up, as many of his family and friends live on the East Coast.

"Justin wanted to marry on the East Coast, where he proposed to Jen and where he feels most comfortable.

"The couple's hectic work schedules have meant that wedding plans have sometimes had to take a backseat and in April Jennifer, 44, revealed that she still hadn't found her wedding dress.

Justin and Jennifer, who was previously married to Brad Pitt for five years, were originally thought to be planning to marry in May but put the big day on hold to give themselves more time to finalise wedding details and make sure everything was planned to perfection.

Jennifer and Justin have been dating since 2011 and got engaged on 10 August, after Justin popped the question on his 41st birthday.

"Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage," his spokesperson told US magazine People.

Since meeting Justin, Friends star Jennifer has frequently spoken of how content her partner makes her, saying she was in a "joyful and peaceful" place and that the two enjoy a relaxed relationship.
