What keeps you up at night? Insomnia? Stress dreams? The unquenchable desire to know when Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber will eventually have their (public) wedding? If you answered the latter, you’re in the right place. After months of speculation, it looks like we’re finally getting some details on when these two crazy kids will be tying the knot. Buckle up, there’s a lot of hearsay from here on out.
To recap, Bieber and Baldwin were married in a low-key courthouse ceremony last September but it was not officially confirmed until November via this Instagram post by none other than Justin himself.
Naturally, rumors of a bigger, star-studded ceremony started swirling immediately. It was leaked that save the dates were sent out for a February 28th event, but then TMZ reported in January that Hailey and Justin needed to postpone because some of the Bieber extended family was unable to attend. Another source claimed the wedding would be going down the weekend of March 1st, which coincided with Justin’s 25th birthday. However, that day came and went without any bells ringing, and for good reason, it seems.
In March, Justin took to Instagram to announce that he would be stepping back from music to focus on his mental health in the hopes of becoming the best version of himself for his wife and potential future children, a move that I think we can all agree is in the best interest of all parties involved. It’s almost like becoming an international pop star at the age of 12 can negatively impact the rest of your life or something.
After that, updates from the Bieber/Baldwin camp became nearly nonexistent until last week, when they were resurrected by the appearance of wedding bands on the young, tanned, incredibly rich fingers of both Hailey and Justin. The Cut is now reporting that the wedding will be happening in September, closer to their actual one year anniversary. Considering how high-profile of an event it’s bound to be, it’s likely we won’t have any real confirmation until after the fact, despite the fervent DMs I keep sending to every member of the Baldwin family.
As for the wedding itself? Safe to say it’ll be Christian as hell. It’s been said that Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz will be officiating the ceremony, which makes sense, as both Hailey and Justin are avid devotees of his church. Attending services there, in fact, is what lead to their initial romance.
The location of these nuptials remains to be revealed, with some guessing the West Coast wooded affair that Hailey alluded to in an interview with The Cut last year, and others assuming a tropical destination event because, well, they’re rich as f*ck. As every single person attached to this story has access to a private jet, I’m thinking speculating will get us nowhere.
It goes without saying that this wedding is going to be loaded with celebrities. In one of their initial rounds of planning, 300 invites were allegedly sent out. I’m imaging a My Sweet Sixteen distribution method of gathering all their friends in the parking lot of a high school and then calling out a select few over a bejeweled megaphone. Those were the days, right?
So who amongst Hollywood’s A-List were lucky enough to secure a coveted invite? Oh, just Kylie Jenner (duh), Travis Scott (sure), Chris Brown (gag), and the rest of the Kardashian-Hadid clan, just to name a few. Like, I get that Hailey is drop dead gorgeous and a literal model, but I can’t think of anyone I want near me in my wedding photos less than Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
This is a developing story, so stay tuned for further updates on Bieber-Baldwin watch 2019. No, we don’t have anything more important to be doing and yes, I went to journalism school for this.
