Jerry Jones to attend Romo's wedding

Published May. 25, 2011 1:00 a.m. ET

Tony Romo's wedding will have a party crasher of sorts this Saturday — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Romo's boss received the NFL's OK to attend the nuptials of his star quarterback and former Dallas-area TV reporter Candice Crawford, reported Wednesday.

"I've gotten special permission," Jones said, according to the website. "... (I'm) proud for him. He's got the best end of this deal."

NFL players and team officials have not been allowed to communicate because of the lockout.


Crawford, the younger sister of "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford, will marry Romo at an historic mansion in Dallas.

The former Miss Missouri, 24, began dating one of Dallas' most eligible bachelors in 2009 — two months after he infamously dumped singer Jessica Simpson.

Romo, 31, was previously linked to "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood, who was a one-time love of Chace Crawford.
