Well folks, fall is officially here and that signals the end of our summer wedding season. But never fear! We have weddings going on all-year round so you will always get to enjoy continuing love and happiness! Plus, who knows? Maybe we will see a spooky Halloween wedding!
This also means we get to start compiling our Top Ten of 2019 Countdowns! In the meantime, we have a nice nugget of weird wedding news coming your way. This time, we have a stop to Disneyland for cake, some celebrity wedding news, and…a dinosaur?
Celebrities and other famous people have it pretty tough sometimes, admittedly, as the average Joe does not know what it is like to have crazy fans come up to you commanding you to recite a favorite movie line or snap a photo.
When you’re a renowned clothes designer (or artist of any kind), imagine how crazy it would be to have someone run up to you and beg for you create your signature artwork for them? That’s exactly what happened to Vera Wang, and luckily for us it was wedding related!
Just a few weeks ago at the US Open, Vera Wang was enjoying the tourney when out of nowhere a fan was upon her asking for a custom bridal gown. Surely very busy doing the gowns for some of the richest people in the world, Wang was said to have been very accommodating all things considering, and chatted with the fan for almost half an hour. Apparently the fan also brought in her mother to try and “‘schmooze her’”!
The latest celebrity wedding to catch our eye is that of Miles Teller and Keleigh Sperry. Best known for his roles in The Spectacular Now and the ill-fated Fantastic Four reboot, Teller rocked a Celine by Hedi Slimane suit while model Sperry wore a Monique Lhuillier gown.
Their long-awaited Maui wedding (they’ve been engaged since August 2017) was held at the lush Ritz Carlton Kapalua Hotel, and featured guests like Shailene Woodley and Nina Dobrev. Be sure to check out the article for more details about their big day, and congrats to the newlyweds!
It’s always fun to catch a wedding that is a little more on the casual side. There’s less worry if you spill on your shirt, and who doesn’t love a groom who wears shorts? Well, one wedding has garnered the attention of the internet after bride Deanna Adams declared to her bridesmaids that they have free reign over their attire for the wedding.
As you can tell by the photo, it was a pretty lax day. The ladies on the right all wear some form of dress, some sneakers and flip-flops…except for the Maid of Honor.
She’s wearing a T-Rex costume; and it’s the bride’s sister!
Wait, what? Talk about taking an idea and running with it! Let us know below, would this ruin your wedding day or take it to a whole other dimension?
For those of you who aren’t super familiar with Walt Disney World, during the Fall they host Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, which has a slew of Autumnal activities and treats. It’s probably at this point you’re wondering how this has anything to do with weddings, but we’re getting there! One of the park’s vendors, Constance is selling what is called the “For Better or For Worse Wedding Cake” and it looks equal amounts adorable and tasty.
For the price of $7.50 (plus the price of a plane ticket and the outrageous admission prices), you can get these three-tiered cakes that are perfectly sized to fit in the palm of your hand. You haven’t even heard the flavor yet: “Raspberry Bavarian Cream and layers of glacage, and is topped with buttercream pearls and a chocolate axe.” How badly do you want one now?
That about does it for this week! Thank you for keeping up to date with all of our weird wedding news we have to share! Stay tuned in the coming weeks for some wonderful fall weddings; the lighting this time of year is unbeatable! As always, if you have any stories to share please send them our way and we will be happy to share them!
