Courteney Cox will soon marry Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. In fact, the two have plans to tie the knot in Ireland. Cox is no doubt inundated with plans for her upcoming nuptials, and those plans include transporting daughter Coco back and forth for singing lessons. Coco--Courteney Cox's daughter with ex-husband David Arquette--will be singing at her mom's wedding.

In addition to being the wedding singer, Courteney Cox has given little Coco a lot of leeway when it comes to planning the wedding.

''Coco spends more time thinking about the wedding than I do," the Friends star said recently. "She wants to be the maid of honor. She's like, 'I want you to have bridesmaids.' I said, 'That's a little different than the norm.'"

Has Courteney Cox created a monster by giving Coco so much free rein? Probably not. It sounds like she wants to make sure her daughter is excited about this wedding as she is.

''She's demanding certain things! She's like, 'I also told my best friend she could be in the wedding.' I'm like, 'OK, Coco, why don't you just tell me what's happening?' I'm letting this be her thing,'' Cox explains.

Johnny McDaid even involved Coco when he proposed to Courteney Cox.

“He gave her a little diamond ring and got on his knee,” Cox said. “And she said, ‘Great! I’m going to camp tomorrow. Let’s do it right now!’”

So, Coco and Johnny McDaid planned to do it at Coco’s birthday party, thrown by none other than Jennifer Aniston.

Courtney Cox elaborated, “They made a plan to count down from three, and when they got to one, he was gonna get down on his knee and say, ‘Will you marry me?’ and she was gonna say, ‘Will you marry him?’”

She added, “They planned it out, they found the perfect tree, with three branches that led to one trunk--it was just beautiful.”

This is actually a wonderful way to make a child feel comfortable and well-loved in a situation where a step-parent will be joining the family. Not only will this make Coco feel she's a big part of Courteney Cox's wedding to Johnny McDaid, but she will feel like she's an important part of both of their lives, too.

What a wonderful experience this will be for Coco to sing at Courteney's wedding. How many 10-year-olds can say they sang at their mom's wedding? And how many do you suppose are influenced by the vocals of this Snow Patrol music star?

It sounds like excitement is definitely in the air for Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid. However Coco Arquette has some excitement in her life, too. In fact, she might be more excited than anyone else about this upcoming wedding.

Hopefully Courteney Cox will share Coco's music with her followers on Twitter.

It was just a few weeks ago when a rumor circulated about Cox and McDaid splitting up. With all these wedding plans underway--and with Coco at the helm--it was likely just a rumor.

Do you expect some of Courteney Cox's Friends costars--Jennifer Aniston, for one--will attend her wedding?
