Our two favorite Friends stars, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, are both planning their second weddings. But, as we know from their long-running hit sitcom, it was Cox who donned a white dress first (ok, if you don't count Rachel's aborted wedding to Barry). So, will life imitate when it comes to Cox and Aniston tying the knot now? All signs are pointing to Monica, once again, ending up with her Mr. Right before best friend Rachel.
During a recent trip to fiancé Johnny McDaid's hometown of Derry, Ireland, Cox made huge efforts to bond with her future mother-in-law. And it paid off! According to Us Weekly, McDaid's mother Pauline can't stop gushing about her. "We all love her," Pauline told Northern Ireland's Sunday Life.
So what was it about Cox that really stole Pauline's heart? How much she genuinely cares about McDaid and her desire to be part of his life. "Courteney was very anxious to see John's home and we took her around and showed her where John grew up," Pauline said. "And she is a very empathetic person, so visiting the Peace Bridge was a big thing for her. We also went to the grave, and that was quite, well, as you can imagine... John is obviously upset that his daddy isn't going to meet her."
It wasn't all sightseeing during their trip to Derry, though. Rumors are running rampant that the couple was looking into wedding venues! McDaid's hometown seems like the perfect, quiet place for these two to wed. And while we're sure McDaid's mom would love them to host an Irish ceremony, she seems to be most excited that her son is happy. "They are head over heels in love, and it is lovely to see how happy they are together," Pauline said.

While Cox and McDaid certainly seem to be taking strides towards the altar, Aniston and her fiancé, Justin Theroux, are taking their time. The couple has been engaged for nearly two years and yet we haven't heard a peep about wedding plans.
Recently, though, Aniston has announced she's looking to tone up — could it be a case of shredding for the wedding? Aniston told Yahoo the other day that, "These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop five founds. That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age."
For now, we'll just have to keep holding out for wedding details — like will these famous friends be each other's maid of honor?
