Don’t hold your breath for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s ‘Save the Date’ cards.

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

The couple — dubbed “Bennifer” — were first engaged way back in 2002, but split in 2004, before linking up again last year.

Back in 2002 they faced unprecedented media interest. They even had to postpone their first planned wedding in 2003 after they were forced to go so far as considering having “decoy brides.”

They released a statement the day before the nuptials, stating “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date.

“When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised.”

According to our source, this time they aren’t taking any chances of wedding news being leaked to the press and paparazzi.

“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,” says the source, adding that Lopez — who also had a broken engagement to Alex Rodriguez — is not going to “jinx” things this time around.

Affleck recently told Howard Stern that his initial relationship with the “Marry Me,” star suffered due to the pressure of the spotlight, saying “I would say [media attention] was about 50 percent [of what destroyed our relationship],” the first time around.

The “Let’s Get Loud,” singer announced her engagement to Affleck on social media Friday after being photographed wearing a huge, 8.5 carat green wedding ring. They are currently house hunting. On Tuesday, Lopez revealed she was taking a bubble bath when he popped the question.
