We are in full effect of the Seattle Squeeze, rain is in the forecast, and if that doesn’t sound like Winter in Seattle to you, well, I don’t know what will. We are here to fend off the gray, monotonous commutes and dreary weather with weird and wild wedding stories. We have a big focus on the secret wedding of Miley Cyrus and Chris Hemsworth this week, as well as some riviteting wedding showdowns and a dazzling, unicorn-styled wedding. Ready for some fun?

A surprise wedding saw the marriage of Christina El Moussa and Ant Anstead, two television hosts, after a whirlwind love affair that lasted only a year before the big day. Host of Flip or Flop, Christina divorced her former partner and co-host Tarek El Moussa back in January, and entered into a relationship with Ant, the host of Wheeler Dealers.

Their guests arrived under the impression that they would be going to the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, but instead got a front yard wedding. Christina announced she would be changing her name–and that she has a new show coming called Christina on the Coast. Congrats to the newlyweds!

This one is quite the doozy of a story. We all have exes, and chances are they probably won’t be invited to our weddings. Well, one ex did decide to show up to a wedding, obviously without an invitation, and proceeded to create quite the ruckus.

Coming from the point of view of the Donut Shop owner who essentially saved the day, this one will make you feel a bit of rage. Apparently, one day he received an urgent call just before closing. Making an exception for the customer who pleaded to come in, they came and pretty much cleared them out of their donuts. Writing “Congrats” on some eclairs, he makes the sale and the lady goes on her way. A while later, after the honeymoon, the newlyweds came in to tell the story of how the groom’s ex invaded the wedding after learning her ex was to be wed. She burst in, grabbed the cake, and threw it at the newlyweds. She then proceeded to smash wine bottles on the floor before the police came and charged her with assault, destruction of private property and more. All in all, the wedding turned out superb, and left the owner feeling as happy as the newlyweds!

Tired of the same old wedding designs? Want something to bring a touch of magical, happy clouds and rainbows? Take a look at this wedding shoot that is described as a “sparkly unicorn in a field of horses.” From designer Jade of Let’s Bee Together, it features, well, a rainbow of colors, dazzling makeup and all comes together with some lovely soft, pink tones. Though it might not be everyone’s flavor, for those wanting something a little different this is surely right up your alley!

The wedding dress, for some, is the most crucial aspect of the big day–I mean, they even make shows and movies just about the dress–so naturally there’s a rather large premium on dresses and some go for thousands of dollars. Fans of Say Yes to the Dress should immediately recognize Kleinfeld, the show’s home-base.

Just a few weeks ago, they opened (and have already closed) a temporary pop-up show that brought in 1,500 different styles of wedding dresses at remarkably low prices. We’re talking going from $15,00-$20,000 all the way down to less than $1,000! Now that’s just insane. Too bad the deals are gone, but boy oh boy what savings!

We’re capping this week off with a dive into the biggest wedding of the last month! After what seemed like too-many years, a rough relationship, and some near-misses, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth finally got married in a secret ceremony at right before Christmas, almost a decade after meeting on the set of The Last Song.

In their small, private ceremony which saw the arrival of the Hemsworths (Chris included), Billy Ray and more, the two kept things sweet, fun and family-oriented. Take a look at the Popsugar article for some fun photos of Thor doing shots, Miley and Liam kissing, and the united families cutting the cake.

Elite Daily writer Bella Gerard dug into the importance of Miley’s dress, as like we have come to know her, her style isn’t exactly what would be considered conventional. Yet, she went for a lovely white dress above anything else.

Designed by Vivienne Westwood, known for bringing modern-punk looks into mainstream fashion, Gerard describes it as “ivory silk satin, with an off-the-shoulder neckline and a draped, corseted bodice.” Costing an estimated $8,600, she certainly did not buy it from the previous article!

The last article discusses the cake, a centerpiece of almost any wedding. After a year of some crazy cakes, like the eighteen-foot-tall behemoth from the Jonas/Chopra wedding, Miley and Liam’s was, well, pretty normal just like her dress. The author of the article digs into this same notion too. The last decade has shown us that Miley wanted nothing more to break free from her childhood star roots and make a name for herself. It seems like she did that, doing exactly what she wants and not sticking to any presumptions about her. Congrats to the happy couple!
