Jennifer Aniston wants to elope with Justin Theroux

JENNIFER Aniston wants to elope with Justin Theroux and they are thinking about having a casual wedding with a few friends in Mexico this spring.

The former 'Friends' star is reportedly fed up of trying to plan a lavish affair and is eager to tie the knot with her fiancé in front of a few close friends as soon as possible.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Justin and Jen might be eloping. She would love for her big day to be this spring."

The 45-year-old actress is a frequent visitor to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico so it's no surprise it tops her list of potential locations for their nuptials.

The actress doesn't want their wedding to be "too stuffy, something casual," and the source added: "Jen would fly people out, someplace warm. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is a possibility. She loves it there."

The couple - who got engaged in August 2012 - were spotted holding hands in New York City last week, putting to rest rumours their relationship was on the rocks.

A source claimed last month that their wedding was on hold as Jennifer, who was previously married to Brad Pitt, was feeling "extremely insecure" about her future with Justin and she opted to celebrate her birthday with friends, including Courteney Cox, in Los Angeles while he was working in Manhattan.

The insider said at the time: "Justin asked Jen to come to New York City but she declined, citing the cold weather. She wanted to be in sunny Southern California with her friends.

"It's absolutely indicative of the status of Jen and Justin's relationship. There is absolutely no wedding talk or planning going on. Publicly the couple is saying it's because they are just too busy with work, but if they wanted to get married, it would happen."

The source added: "The relationship is definitely at an impasse...either it's going to fizzle out, which seems likely, or they get married. Jen is extremely insecure and very needy.... Justin is the opposite, very laid back and low maintenance."
