Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, who eloped in Las Vegas this weekend, will be holding a lavish multi-day party for friends and family, a source tells Page Six. It looks as if it’ll double as a birthday party for the diva, who turns 53 on July 24.

According to our source, Lopez and Affleck want to do something within the next two weeks for “everyone they love but could not invite,” to their small Vegas wedding. The pair said their “I dos” in front of their respective children from previous marriages.

Our source tells us close friends and family including Casey Affleck, Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel and Lopez’s “Shades of Blue” co-star Drea de Matteo have been invited.

The event is expected to take place at Affleck’s 87-acre property in Riceboro, Ga., TMZ reported.

Our source tells us it will be a two- or three-day affair, and that there could be a party on the nearby St. Simon island, located about 50 minutes away, which has beaches, wellness retreats and a picturesque lighthouse.

“We flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” Lopez wrote in her newsletter of their no-frills nuptials.

The pair were engaged in April.

They had previously been engaged way back in 2002, but split in 2004. They canceled their first wedding in 2003 after it became such a media circus that they were forced to go so far as considering “decoy brides.”

They released a statement the day before the planned ceremony, saying, “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date.”

A source told Page Six earlier this year that the pair were planning to elope in order to avoid the press and paparazzi.

“After the last time [they got engaged], there won’t be any announcements of when and where they are getting married,” a source told us in April. “They will just do it and then announce.”

A source told us at the time, “Friends will be invited to something like a birthday and then it will turn out to be a wedding and they will get married in front of like 30, 40 people.”

Reps for Affleck and Lopez did not return requests for comment.
