NEW YORK (AP) _ Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are getting married Sunday at the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara, Calif., according to the mother of another woman who's getting married there the same day.

``It will be at the hotel,'' Vivian Terhark of Spooner, Wis., told ABC News Radio. Terhark said she knows this because guests at her daughter Julie Ann's wedding are being told to carry their invitations at all times to avoid being mistaken as crashers at the celebrity nuptials.

``As the mother of the bride, I had to hand-carry my invitation because of security purposes,'' Terhark told ABC.

Affleck, Lopez and their publicists have refused to comment on their plans. So has the oceanside Four Seasons hotel, where deluxe rooms go for up to $2,000 a night.

This will be the third wedding for Lopez, 33, and the first for Affleck, 31, who met while filming this summer's infamous bomb ``Gigli.''
