John Cena and Nikki Bella had planned to tie the knot on May 5. But after their sudden split last month after six years together, a Cinco de Mayo/Derby Day wedding was not meant to be for the WWE superstars.
Cena and Bella's wedding planning had been in full force—they ended their engagement just three weeks before their planned nuptials—and now some of their canceled wedding plans are being revealed. According to People, John Cena and Nikki Bella were both actively involved in their wedding planning, although Cena admitted he was "the last checkpoint" after being given a couple of options to choose from. The former couple had even planned a TV special about their wedding, which was slated to air in July.
After John Cena proposed to his longtime love with a 4.5 carat Tiffany ring in front of a live audience at WrestleMania 33, Nikki Bella went into immediate wedding planning mode. Nikki told People magazine she wanted a "classic" and sexy, form-fitting lace wedding dress. After a trip to New York Bridal Fashion Week last spring, Nikki dished that she chose a Marchesa gown and that she would be wearing a veil on her big day.
John Cena was much more low key about his planned wedding attire. The WWE legend revealed that he already owned several "decent-looking tuxes" and that depending on the color scheme for the wedding he might not need to order anything new.
"I have a few tailors that I work with, just because I'm not exactly somebody who can buy a suit off the rack," Cena explained.
