romo-engaged-to-candice-crawfordSet to beat his famous ex to the alter, Tony Romo and fiance Candice Crawford will tie the knot in a private ceremony this weekend (May 28).

The Texas twosome, who began dating shortly after Tony’s 2009 split from Jessica Simpson, have planned their nuptials at the historic Arlington Hall mansion in Dallas.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who got special permission from the NFL to attend the wedding due to the current lockout, said he was elated to attend the ceremony – adding that his ticket to the event was “one of the prettiest invitations I’ve ever seen.”

Romo is also super-excited about the thought of wedded bliss with his wife-to-be, gushing, “It’s going to be a fun day. When you have the right one, you just know.”
