Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston go over to the dark side

After her fairytale wedding to Brad Pitt it's understandable that Jennifer Aniston would want to do things differently second time around.

But guests are in for a big surprise when she and Justin Theroux tie the knot - she's not only brought forward the date to Christmas but her chosen theme is black!

A source tells Now: 'Jen wants to flip the script on her wedding to Brad, which was very traditional, in favour of something smaller, cooler and weirder - and it doesn't get much weirder than a black-themed do.

'She's even talking about a black wedding dress!'

'It's Justin's favourite colour and it's important to them both to stand out visually.'

We're told that Jen, 43, wants her nuptials to be edgy.

And her team thinks a black wedding would look fabulous in photos, which has encouraged her even more.

Jen and Justin, 41, have told friends to keep December free for their big day in New York.

'That was a huge decision as most of Jen's friends are in LA, but she's determined to make it as different as possible to her Malibu wedding to Brad,' adds our source.

'Plus she's already had one wedding, so she's letting Justin have the final say on this.'
