The second time's a charm for Salma Hayek and her new hubby Francois-Henri Pinault. The couple who first wed in a top-secret, low-key ceremony over Valentine's Day weekend in the City of Lights are planning another set of nuptials for friends and family.

And if Salma gets her way, the affair will be the event of the year, which is only fitting for the powerhouse businesswoman, actress and producer. She deserves her dream fairy tale wedding more than most celebs we know, having put up with all those nasty rumors about Pinault's infidelity over the last year. Her husband of two months seems to agree with us. An insider told Radar Online, "Francois is sparing no expense. Everything will be top flight and lavish. The final wedding bill will likely top $2 million." 

Salma and Francois are even going the extra mile to be sure that all their best friends and loved ones will be in attendance, offering all-expense paid invites to Penelope Cruz and her boyfriend Javier Bardem, Ashley Judd, the entire cast of Ugly Betty, and Hayek's 30 Rock co-stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, as well as director Robert Rodriguez and his girlfriend Rose McGowan.

“Salma and Francois already ordered up hundreds of cases of the
world’s finest wines and champagnes, Four Star Gourmet food and the
party will be decorated with bouquets of red and white roses," dished Radar Online's source, "And this won’t be a typical wedding celebration. The event will kick off April 24th and go straight through the whole weekend.”

While they're at it, we might as well ask: Can we come too? We promise to be on our best behavior.

UPDATE: Hayek recently denied the lavish wedding plans, telling people.com, "I think a wedding is about love, friends, family and fun. I think spending millions of dollars on a wedding is ridiculous and it has never been my dream," the 42-year-old actress declared, "I would never do that."

We're upset that this means there isn't going to be an awesome wedding to crash, but just proves yet again why Salma is an inspiration!

I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
