Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have allegedly set a date for their wedding.

The Hollywood couple have put past problems behind them and pencilled in August 10 as the date to tie knot, says British magazine Grazia. The day will be made even more special as it's also Justin's 43rd birthday, and the couple are apparently making preparations for an intimate reception.

"After talking honestly, their issues seemed to evaporate. Jen doesn't like Justin going to NY alone and lunching with ex-fiancée Heidi Bivens," a source divulged to the publication.

"But once Jen offered him space to script-write, Justin agreed to move his office to LA. Justin admitted he hated the idea of an over-the-top wedding. Jen's happily agreed to a low-key do with friends and family."

There was much speculation over the state of Jennifer and Justin's relationship recently, with the couple living on opposite sides of the country due to work commitments. But 45-year-old Jennifer is said to have put the gossip behind her, and is ready to become Mrs Theroux after nearly two years of being engaged.

"Jen's thrilled and Justin couldn't be happier," the source added.

The pair met on the set of comedy flick Wanderlust in 2011 and are reportedly keen to make sure their nuptials have an element of fun. Some of their closest friends are well known comedy stars, so Jennifer and Justin are hopeful their big day will be light hearted and full of laughter.

"Jen and Justin will be cheered on by some of the most hilarious stars in entertainment as the guest list will include Ben Stiller, Ellen DeGeneres, Chelsea Handler, her Friends co-stars like bestie Courteney Cox, and the cream of comedy writers, directors, actors and actresses,” a source recently told RadarOnline.

“Justin’s one of the funniest guys in Hollywood and Jen just bounces off him to perfection. They truly are a match made in comedy heaven."

New claims have emerged the couple could be expecting the patter of tiny feet before they make it down the aisle.

The insider alleges the pair are designing a nursery in their home, that they know they are having a little girl and are discussing names for their daughter.

“All that matters to her now is to bring a healthy baby girl into the world,” the source told In Touch Weekly. “Jen can’t wait to meet her little angel.”

In fact, the publication’s contact suggests the 45-year-old and her beau have picked out the name Philippa, “as they believe Pippa is the cutest nickname”. Apparently Jennifer wants an “all natural” pregnancy with no epidurals or pain relief.

The Horrible Bosses star’s rep has yet to comment on the latest rumours. But Jennifer has spoken in the past at how bored and annoyed she gets when reporters ask her questions about having a baby, particularly when they try to link the question to one of her film roles.

“Something about family and trying to relate it to the movie with, ‘Oh, if I was to have a child how many kids do I want?’ And ‘do I want a boy or a girl?’” she confessed in an interview with ABC News in August last year. “I didn’t realise you could place orders, I honestly didn’t realise it was like a drive-through, that you could talk to a little electronic voice.”
