Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez will marry on the Hawaiian island of Kauai over 13 and 14 September (03), according to sources close to the couple.

The ceremony was thought to have been shelved after recent reports Affleck enjoyed a fling with a Canadian lapdancer - but the wedding will go ahead next month (03).

According to British tabloid The Sun, Affleck's brother CASEY will be best man and the guest list will read like a who's who of Hollywood - Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Colin Farrell, Matthew Perry, Alec Baldwin, Joaquin Phoenix and Miramax head honchos HARVEY and Bob Weinstein are among those invited.

The Hawaiian venue will be decked with hundreds of flowers and guests will dine on Latin-influenced seafood including lobster, shrimp and salmon.

An insider involved in organising the event let slip, "The wedding promises to be one of the biggest events in modern-day showbiz history. There will be some very famous people among the congregation, some even more famous than the happy couple.

"Every last thing is being planned in minute detail to make sure Jen is happy with her special day."

Lopez was rumoured to be close to cancelling the wedding after tabloid claims of his infidelity - but she has now even changed her mind about banning him from holding a bachelor party.

Affleck and pals including longterm buddy Damon will now hold a pre-wedding bash in the posh Cape Cod, Massachusetts, town of Truro - near his Boston hometown.
