Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez will host a grand post-wedding celebration for their family and friends.

While they wed during a low-key ceremony in Las Vegas on July 16, the couple plans to hold a bigger and more lavish celebration with their loved ones to celebrate their marriage after their honeymoon in Paris, Page Six reported.

Multiple unnamed sources told the outlet that the newlyweds hired luxury event planner Colin Cowie to help organize the wedding bash.

The party will take place in the "Justice League" star's 87-acre property in Riceboro, Georgia, in the next few weeks, one insider told Page Six.

Cowie has created extravagant parties for Oprah Winfrey, Kim Kardashian, Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Jordan, Nicole Kidman and other celebrities. He also worked with Lopez in the past.

The event planner and his team promise to deliver what their client wants, whether it's "a royal wedding of epic proportions" or "the most glamorous, sophisticated and tasteful backyard wedding," according to the outlet.

However, his services also come at a hefty price tag. Cowie has offices in New York and Los Angeles, and based on his website, his company produces national and international events "with budgets ranging from $25,000 to $25 million."

Lopez and Affleck's upcoming celebration could be a two- or three-day affair, an unnamed source previously told Page Six. There could also be a party on St. Simons Island, Georgia, which has beaches, wellness retreats and a picturesque lighthouse, the insider added.

A number of celebrities have reportedly been invited to the event, including Affleck's brother Casey Affleck, his best friend Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel and Lopez's "Shades of Blue" co-star Drea de Matteo.

Lopez visited Affleck's Georgia property a few weeks ago with her manager to plan the party, TMZ reported.

The "Let's Get Loud" singer announced her wedding to the Oscar winner via her On the JLo newsletter on July 17, a day after they tied the knot in Las Vegas.

"We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient," Lopez wrote.

She added that their wedding, which was reportedly attended by Lopez's child Emme, 14, and Affleck's daughter Seraphina, 13, was "exactly what we wanted."

The "Jenny From the Block" singer is also mom to Emme's twin, Maximillian, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, while the "Argo" star co-parents Sera, Violet, 16, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
