ICYMI, Jennifer Lopez, and Ben Affleck, affectionally called Bennifer, finally tied the knot back in July.

This took place in Las Vegas at the Little White Chapel, over 18 years since they first split and called off their first engagement.

Their second wedding — yes, second — is set to be much more sentimental. That’s because the couple has a long history with the wedding location. 

Ben and Jen have a big weekend ahead of them!

They are set to exchange vows for the second time in a luxurious three-day celebration, according to reports. 

Their dream wedding starts on Friday, with a rehearsal dinner with close friends and family. 

The guest list is expected to be absolutely star-studded with big names like Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Drea de Matteo in attendance.

It's unlikely that Ben's ex-wife and the mother of his three kids, Jennifer Garner, will be in attendance.

Garner already missed the first wedding.

It was discovered that the Alias actress had a nice trip to Lake Tahoe, California at the time of their wedding.

"It was very, very minimally planned in advance and was largely spur-of-the-moment," a Hollywood source reported. "[Affleck and Garner’s 16-year-old daugthter] Violet stayed home because she’s extremely loyal to her mom.”

The couple's second wedding ceremony takes place on Saturday.

The three-day intimate celebration will close out on Sunday with a barbeque and picnic.

It’s been reported that Ben wants "all of the focus" to be on Jennifer for their big day. 

This will certainly be accomplished with Jen’s wedding dress.

For their Las Vegas wedding, Jennifer actually wore two dresses: a sleeveless A-line gown by Alexandra McQueen and an off-the-shoulder gown by Zuhair Murad that she wore for the poster of Jersey Girl

For the second wedding, the 'Marry Me' star will look absolutely radiant in a custom-made Ralph Lauren wedding dress that was made in Italy.

Vogue magazine is expected to document her wedding fashion throughout the weekend. We can't wait to see that!

The wedding planner behind their lavish weekend is Colin Cowie.

His price tag ranges from $25,000 to $25 million (he must be good!). He’s been responsible for planning events for A-list clients, such as Oprah and Michael Jordan in the past. 

There's one final detail that makes the wedding even more special: the location.

The wedding is said to take place at Ben's 50-year-old estate in Riceboro, Georgia. The reason why this is so sentimental to the couple is because of their long history with the house.

It was initially purchased by the 'Gone Girl' star in 2003 when the couple was dating for the first time.

They were even photographed outside of the home back then in the same Chevy Convertible that their characters drove in their shared movie, Gigli.

Affleck spoke about his long for the house in 2004 to Larry King.

"I live down south of Savannah, I have a place down there, I live down this long dirt road and I'm my calmest and happiest [there]" he said.

It's so sweet that Ben still owns the property.

It's the perfect wedding venue for the pair and their friends and family, as the mansion has 557 square meters of living space and four-meter high ceilings.

The house has clearly been waiting for them, even after all this time.
