Alex previously hinted they are planning a destination wedding that will be a "long flight" away. However, the actress said they haven’t settled on a location for their nuptials. "He's just saying things," she said. "We're talking about it, but we don't have any firm plans... and we're talking about a lot of places [to get married in], but I don't know yet," Jennifer told Entertainment Tonight in September.
