Jessica Simpson is saying "arrivederci" to a wedding in Italy. Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson have decided to relocate their wedding from the island of Capri to Los Angeles for a more low-key celebration closer to home according to Us Weekly,

The couple of nearly four years, who have been engaged since November 2010, "decided to keep it simple," reports a source. Another insider reveals that the parents of Ace, 8 months, and Maxwell, 22 months, thought it was "too much" to ask guests to fly to out to the initial Italian wedding location.

Rumors of destination nuptials started swirling back in October when Simpson and Johnson jetted off to the picture-perfect island to location scout. Apparently, they wanted to tie the knot there for a super-romantic reason: It's where they fell in love during their first trip together in 2010. (Unsurprisingly, we're total suckers for meaningful, jaw-dropping wedding spots.) During the visit, Simpson reportedly deemed the seaside landmark Augustus Gardens the "perfect" venue for a summer 2014 wedding.

But with summer quickly approaching, the far-flung island played a role in her change of plans. Given her two small children and L.A.-based lifestyle, the couple's swap makes total sense.

Considering her younger sister Ashlee is also preparing for a wedding — the singer got engaged to actor Evan Ross in January — we're excited to see what kind of intimate, family-focused bash she'll devise. She certainly has the cutest flower girl option built in!
