There’s been a bunch of wild wedding news over the past few weeks (Sophie Turner getting hitched to Joe Jonas in a Vegas chapel, Royal Baby alert, and ScarJo and Colin Jost getting engaged) on top of the conclusion to Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame, so we have been pretty emotionally drained! Nevertheless, we will persist through the sadness and continue to bring you weird, wacky news! This week we’ve got some dresses, bridesmaid advice, and some cake with a woefully sad ending! Let’s get down to it!

I don’t know much about the modern rap scene, so if you can fill me in a little more about who Lil Xan is that would be great. Either way, he is about to start a family with his fiance Annie Smith. He broke the news on Instagram, in which he announced that “it’s official, I’m going to be a father.”

Alas, there is no ring yet as Smith explains they are “very unconventional.” Ring, no ring, there’s still an engagement which means we will be covering their wedding when it finally happens! Smith had a few thoughts about their wedding, which is likely to be “super, super intimate.” They haven’t ruled out the idea for a large reception, but the wedding will be without too many glaring details for the time being!

Though it has taken quite some time, the wedding dress is finally seeing some modern updates and breaks from tradition. White is no longer the go-to color for a growing number of brides, and now we have an entire article dedicated to Champagne Wedding Dresses. Over at Who What Wear, they break down some lovely dresses featuring the peachy-keen color!

Whether you are going for a strapless gown, something a little more sleek or even something closer to a ball gown, the delightful color can be found any dress suited for your body type. Check out the article for all the wonderful designs!

While the role of Maid of Honor ultimately takes the brunt of the extra responsibility for the bride, the bridesmaids often also have their fair share of work. This article really digs into some little (but major) changes a bride can make to ensure their bridesmaids have a grand ol’ time.

For instance, two minor adjustments to the wardrobe can allow for emergency prep and comfy feet. Opting for dresses with pockets can allow bridesmaids to carry band aids, extra make up, or the quintessential tissues for when the tears start to flow. And instead of heels, go for some flats, especially if the dress goes all the way to the ankles! Be sure to read the article for even more tips and tricks!

Cake is the best…which is why I always try to cap off the week with a tasty, fresh-baked story about it. Alas, this one is rather upsetting for the groom in question. This is a double first for us: on one hand this is the first wedding story we’ve received out of Ghana. On the other, this appears to be the first time a wedding has been ruined because of the cake.

Supposedly the friend of the slighted groom, a Twitter user detailed the breakup. In his tweets, he explains the bride thought her fiance’s budget was too small, which meant she could not have the cake she desired. In the end, he summed it up by essentially saying his buddy dodged a huge bullet. We can’t help but agree!

Welcome back to another weird, wild and wonderful edition of Bizarre Wedding News. The sun is now peaking out more and more, and soon Target and Walmart will be entirely sold out of fans in the Pacific Northwest. We take this as a good sign, because that means everyone is outside ready to get married! This week doesn’t feature any tragic stories, and unfortunately no cake, but we hope we have some fun ones to make up for that!

https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/miranda-lamberts-wedding-dress-details-revealed

Well wouldn’t you know it, Miranda Lambert is married again! After a brief fling with Evan Felker that ended in August, it has now only been about 6 months and she is officially married again.

The wedding was a secret (one of the few secrets we would be ok with) as she and her beau got hitched right around Valentines Day. Her husband is a 27-year-old NYPD cop, though it isn’t exactly clear when she even began dating him. Nevertheless, the two are officially married. Be sure to check out the article if you want details on her gorgeous dress!

Viral videos, depending on their subject matter, can engross millions of people from around the world in the story and subjects behind them. So it wouldn’t be surprising that this story actually made its way to a nationwide reality show.

Back in October 2017, Jennifer and Rob Ronnenberg were yet to be married as Jennifer was battling cystic fibrosis. Over the course of several videos, we see her eventual lung transplant surgery and the results: she can finally breathe on her own.

But some producers took notice and just this past February, the two got married live on television on My Great Big Live Wedding with David Tutera (hey, we’ve heard of him before!)

Check the full article for the utterly heartwarming story.

In the dead of winter, us Washingtonians imagine the warmer days of Spring and Summer for outdoor weddings. For those in warmer climates, the trend seems to be the opposite—at least for some Bollywood stars!

Back in February, Akash Ambani and Shloka Menta got married in Switzerland in what was being referred to as a Winter Wonderland. Their three-day pre-wedding bash in St. Moritz featured a ferris wheel, a carriage that looks like it was plucked from Cinderella, and fireworks to cap it all off. Now this is a winter wedding we can get behind!

One last Bollywood story to tide us over for the week, this one is about Bipasha Basu’s sister, Vijayeta Basu. Back in February, they got the wedding celebration off in Bengali tradition with the Nandi Mukh. This is where the elders of “the house and bride offer their prayers to the ancestors asking them to bless the bride and also seek permission for marriage.”

If that wasn’t enough, the article contains quite a few photos pertaining to the weekend before, as well as Basu’s thoughts on dating and marriage in general!
