Brad's mum on guest list for Jen's 3-day wedding

THERE is a real celebrity trend for three-day wedding celebrations.

First, our very own Chris O'Dowd married Dawn Porter in a three-day celebration dubbed 'Wedfest', and Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's Italian wedding will take place this weekend in a three-day spectacular.

And now it seems Jennifer Aniston (43) is set to throw a three-day bash for her nuptials to actor Justin Theroux (41).

The former Friends star is pulling out all the stops for her big day. Screen writer Justin had wanted a small affair but it seems his wife-to-be has other ideas.

And that includes inviting her former mother-in-law -- Brad Pitt's mother Jane Pitt.

"Jen wants it to be more like a massive party and at the moment is looks like it could stretch over three days."

The source went on to say that this wedding would have plenty of Hollywood glitz and sparkle and would be attended by Hollywood royalty: "Half of Hollywood will be there."

Jen has remained friends with Jane since the couple split in 2005.

"Jen wants Jane to be there. She's closer to her than she is to her own mother Nancy."

Brad and Jen married in 2000 in a plush ceremony in Malibu. They were Hollywood's golden couple and their wedding was described as being the showbiz equivalent of the Moon landing.

Apparently, Jane Pitt is thrilled that Jen has now found Justin.

"Jane is thrilled Jennifer has found happiness again. She has been offering support and advice for the past seven years. She wouldn't miss Jen's wedding for anything," said the source.

Brad himself will be walking down the aisle with Angelina Jolie soon but the couple are remaining tight lipped about their wedding, refusing to disclose the location.
