Claire Danes to Wed Hugh Dancy

Claire Danes will be a first-time bride in less than three months — she’s planning to marry fiance Hugh Dancy in France this September.

The couple attended a private dinner at New York’s Montauk Yacht Club for a reading of author Jay McInerney’s new book How It Ended — where they each took to the floor to read an excerpt.

But the 150 dinner guests, including celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan and designer Cynthia Rowley, were stunned when the pair used the opportunity to divulge details of their upcoming wedding, including plans to return to France for the nuptials — where Dancy proposed during a romantic holiday last December.

The Romeo + Juliet star, 30, has been dating 33-year-old Dancy since meeting him on the set of their 2007 movie Evening.
