Did Jennifer Garner Turn Down An Invite To Ben Affleck And Jennifer Lopez's Wedding?

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are gearing up to tie the knot for the second time and preparations for their big day are already under way. The pair, who rekindled their decades-old romance in April 2021, held their first ceremony at a small chapel in Las Vegas. "We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind," said Lopez (via Fox News). "And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient." The "Marry Me" actor went on to reveal that she and Affleck donned previously owned items for their July 17 wedding, which was attended only by their kids.

Now the pair is planning an even bigger celebration, one month after getting hitched in Sin City. A source told Page Six that the "Gigli" stars have planned a massive celebration, which will take place on Affleck's Georgia estate. Per the outlet, the three-day event will include a rehearsal dinner, the official wedding ceremony, and a barbecue. And while it's been confirmed that family and friends of the pair will attend the festivities, some may be wondering if Affleck's ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, will make an appearance.

Jennifer Garner was invited but is not attending Bennifer's wedding

Despite sending well wishes to the newlyweds, Jennifer Garner is not expected to attend Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's upcoming marriage ceremony, according to Hollywood Life. "Jennifer Garner is hard at work on a project in Texas and won't be attending the wedding celebration," a source told the outlet. Adding, "She's been totally supportive of her kids being there and is really positive in general about the whole thing," The insider went on to note that "nothing [is] more important to her than her kids' happiness" and "the fact that they feel welcomed and at ease and have bonded with J.Lo and her kids is just the best thing she could ask for." The publication also reports that Garner has personally "congratulated" the couple ahead of their wedding weekend.

Garner was also not in attendance at the pair's July wedding, which took place in Las Vegas. A day after the surprise ceremony, the "13 Going on 30" actor took to social media to share her whereabouts with fans. Garner posted a smiling selfie to her Instagram Story of her seemingly bicycling through the nature runs of Lake Tahoe, California (via Elle).
