Kiss bassist Gene Simmons and his decades-long partner Shannon Tweed plan to tie the knot next month.

Their wedding invitation, displayed on, shows the wedding is set for Oct. 1 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California.

The invite requests "classy cocktail attire" even though "we know some Rockstar attire will be worn."

Simmons, now 61, and Tweed, who is 54, star in a reality TV series called Family Jewels with their two adult children, Nick and Sophie.

In late July, it was announced that Tweed, a former Playboy model, would have a road named after her in Saskatoon called "Tweed Lane."

Tweed was born in Newfoundland, but her family moved to Saskatoon, where she graduated from Mount Royal Collegiate.
