As far as wedding planning is concerned, Lopez previously spoke about having to cancel plans for their nuptial not once but twice, following interruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. Lopez later added:
"We just feel like, let's just wait it out. There's no rush. It will happen when the time is right."
