Brad Pitt Takes Charge of the Wedding Plans

Everyone says wedding planning is a team effort. But Brad Pitt seems to disagree—he's taking charge of every aspect of Brangelina's wedding.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will reportedly marry this summer at a private chapel in the Chateau Miraval, the home in southern France they leased back in 2010, according to the New York Daily News.

Pitt seems serious about tying the knot so soon, having already spent 10 million pounds (that's roughly $16.2 million!) in order to restore the estate for the ceremony. The Moneyball star is also planning for an intimate and private setting. "He's even trying to organize an airplane landing site in the grounds for guests to come in by private jet, but that's proving to be tricky, what with permits and no-fly zones," says a source.

But Pitt won't stop there. "Brad's been tasting and looking up French dishes for weeks. He wants the perfect menu and, of course, the perfect wine to accompany it," says the source.

Pitt even asked Jolie's brother, James Haven, to serve as minister. Talk about a thoughtful groom!

It might feel a little out of the ordinary for grooms to be so involved in handling important big-day arrangements, but, after all, it is their wedding, too. We appreciate Brad's eagerness to step up to the plate!
