Welcome back everyone for your favorite weird, wedding world updates! With summer on its last legs before the leaves start to change and the rain begins to fall every day, we are trying to squeeze in as many wonderful outdoor weddings as we can. Nevertheless, we want to keep you informed on all-things wedding, so here is your weekly helping of Bizarre Wedding News! This week we have got feuding sisters, ideas for wedding planners, cake and more! Buckle up!

https://www.marthastewartweddings.com/2105821/wedding-planner-approved-favor-ideas

Martha Stewart Weddings takes no time in stating a cold, hard truth: “Wedding favors are a lovely thought, but they’re often hit or miss.” What should you get for your guests, when in reality the favors are often unwanted or simply thrown out? Some wedding planners have offered up a few tips on what you can do should you choose to do it.

The first tip is to give it some thought: “Thoughtful favors are a win every time” claims Deanna Nash. But what if you can’t think of anything? How about food? Everyone loves food, especially after a night of drinking and dancing. Still, Nash says to go thoughtful with the food rather than fancy. A few more tips include buying local and donating to a good cause instead. What did you give as wedding favors?

https://www.boredpanda.com/pregnant-sister-family-pressure-bride-wedding-venue

The first of two Reddit-based stories today comes from user “paperweightfairy.” She and her fiance had booked their wedding venue quite a ways down the road (three years engaged). Yet as life would have it, her sister got pregnant. Why this matters is about to become abundantly clear: the sister wanted to get hitched and have her sister and future-brother-in-law give up their venue for her. Why? Because of the stress of getting pregnant and feeling the pressure to get married. What is the craziest is her family started to take the pregnant sister’s side and began badgering the other sister into giving up the venue.

There have not been too many updates since then, though the mom of the sisters apparently called the fiance’s parents to harass them as well. What a family!

https://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/wedding-guest-steals-the-spotlight-in-low-cut-dress-050845475.html

And now for other Reddit story: This time, a photo was posted to the r/Trashy page (where gross, inappropriate and, well, trashy images and videos are posted) that showed a smiling, happy wedding party. The thing is, the girl standing next to the bride is wearing a rather deep-cut dress. The post pertaining to the photo is “When you just have to steal the spotlight.” As it was the internet, lots of people decided to share their opinion. There were some clear disapproval, and others in support. But then someone actually claimed they knew the bride and the people in the photo, and that the bride herself approved of the dress.

To cap it all off, the group in the photo caught wind of all the hullabaloo and posted more photos of the wedding to prove everyone was in good spirits. What do you think about the dress?

https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/bride-groom-wedding-cake-fail-disaster

Our last story for the week is about our favorite wedding tradition: cake. Except this time, we come to you with what is being called a “disaster.” A photo that popped up on Instagram (the famous That’s It I’m Wedding Shaming page to be exact) that showed a three tiered cake, but the cake looks somewhat like worn-out luggage, with a blaring drizzle of icing that anyone passing by would recognize as, well, poop.

It is certainly one of the most…interesting…wedding cakes we have seen, but the bride and groom in question have received quite the roasting from the internet. Not quite sure what the idea was here, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t excrement-based.

There you have it for this week. Be sure to keep an eye out for the final batch of our summer weddings as we head into Autumn. Have a story to share? You know what to do!

Welcome everyone to the beginning of the end of our Summer Wedding Season. As we creep our way into the month of August, we only have about 6 weeks left of Summer! Of course we will have some wonderful Fall weddings later on, dazzling us with the oranges and browns of the leaves, but for now let’s just soak up the last bit of summer and get ready for some more Bizarre Wedding News. This week we have some dresses, news about JFK Jr., nudity, and Arthur? Guess you will just have to find out! Let’s begin:

https://www.jacarandafm.com/shows/breakfast-martin-bester/crude-or-funny-man-strips-his-wife-their-wedding/

Now I don’t know about you, but I have never heard of a wedding that got so rowdy and out of control that someone got naked–let alone the groom. Well that is exactly what happened back in May as a video posted to Jacaranda FM shows a groom stripping (along with a groomsmen) and getting wild for his newly-wed wife. While on the one hand we must praise this man for his bravery and talent, the other hand must also question whether this was exactly the best place to do it–I mean, the honeymoon was surely just a few hours off…

Anyway, check out the video and let us know: if your new spouse decided to drop to their skivvies, would you be mad? Or would you join them?

https://www.usmagazine.com/stylish/news/cheryl-burke-gets-married-in-romona-keveza-wedding-dress-pic/

Fans of Boy Meets World will undoubtedly recognize a name out of this article. Dancing with the Stars pro, Cheryl Burke, got hitched to Matthew Lawrence (Jack Hunter in BMW) back in May. Their San Diego wedding was held at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, and saw the bride wearing a “structured silk crepe gown that featured a scalloped sweetheart neckline.” There were also “Swarovski crystal buttons along the “cathedral-length, six-foot train.”

For more details about their grand wedding, be sure to hit the link!

https://www.newsweek.com/alabama-public-television-refuses-air-gay-wedding-episode-arthur-1431132

If ever you thought there would be a controversial television program, the least likely one you would consider was probably Arthur. Well, back in May, Alabama Public Television decided to bar an episode of the delightful children’s program from airing. Why, you ask? Because it had one of the long-time staples of the show, Mr. Ratburn (the teacher), get married to his boyfriend.

What was titled “Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone,” was cut out of the state’s programming and has yet to see the light of day there (unless, you know, you go on the internet). It’s wild to think that in this day and age there would be such an uproar over a kid’s show, but then again, people are going to be very upset when that Baby Shark show gets going.

Welcome everyone to another page turning installment of Bizarre Wedding New. The summer sun is burning hot, and that means wedding season is booming. Don’t worry, in between those lovely videos of people getting married we want to make sure you are up to date with all of the weird wedding news going on around the world. This week, we have got some violence, sadness, and a few happy announcements to share, so buckle up because it’s time to get educated!

https://topyaps.com/bhuvan-bams-funny-videos-akash-shloka-wedding/

In case you missed the Jonas/Chopra wedding, which saw several days of intense celebration over in India, there’s even more Mumbai weddings that have sent shockwaves through the wedding vine. Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta had a massive wedding, reportedly “one of the most expensive weddings in the country’s history,” and we have already mentioned this before. They even had a pre-wedding celebration in which Coldplay, Maroon 5 and Chainsmokers performed.

YouTube star Bhuvan Bam decided to have some fun with the ritzy wedding videos, dubbing over them and throwing in some of his own creations. The result is some hilarious fun that hopefully Ambani and Mehta don’t take too much offense to!

https://www.azfamily.com/news/investigations/3_on_your_side/after-years-bride-says-she-still-doesn-t-have-wedding/article_0c740e08-407a-11e9-9010-8fe2181a4486.html

Your wedding photos and videos are your primary time machine in bringing you back to the big day. It was one of the highlights of your life and being able to relive every memory, song, dance and bite of cake that made your wedding oh-so special is so crucial to the whole experience. But as the world is round, there are some people who create unnecessary suffering.

Jessica Craney had hired Gary Helland to shoot her wedding, for the “promotional price” of about $2,000. This package entailed a large canvas photo and twin photo books. Craney only received the canvas photo, but not after significant pestering. She has been married for over three years. She hired an outside company to help get the books, but he never answered the door. He later told Craney “some things slipped between the sofa cushion.” For a week, sure. But not for three years. We have yet to hear if she has finally received them.

https://www.bet.com/style/living/2019/03/06/rachel-lindsay-exclusive.html

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are a pretty big deal to us. The scintillating gossip and drama eventually (or should I say hopefully?) lead to a big proposal at the end of the season. Former Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, has finally got a date in mind for her wedding, and a location. She is planning on “somewhere in the Caribbean in August.” To us, that sounds pretty grand!

She also had some interesting opinions on the rumors suggesting Khloe Kardashian joining The Bachelorette. She goes on to say, “I mean, I feel like she’s tried everything else, so why not try the show?” She finishes it off by suggesting, “It’s worked for me. I think I was a little shocked with how aggressively she said she wasn’t going to do it.” What do you think? Should she?

https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/groom-arrested-florida-punching-photobombing-beach-goer-wedding

This last story is possibly one of our most thrilling (it involves the police and jail). Imagine having a wonderful beachfront wedding, a bright sunny sky in Florida, and you are snapping some photos…when all of a sudden some stranger starts photobombing your shots. How many times would you ask them to stop before finally doing something more drastic?

Jeffery E. Alvord had to come to that conclusion the hard way. After supposedly asking photobomber Trevor Mooney to move several times, even offering him cash, there was a moment where everything boiled over and Alvord struck Mooney in “supposed self-defense,” promptly breaking his nose and glasses. The police arrived and everyone had their own version of the story, though many claimed that Mooney’s version was full of crap. Alvord then spent what should’ve been his wedding night in jail, but he got hitched shortly after getting out of jail.

Welcome back everyone to another fun week of Bizarre Wedding News! These articles key you in on some of the weirdness going on in the world of weddings. Depending on the week, we bring you monsters, tragedy, humor, tips, and most importantly–cake. Alas we do not have any of that goodness this week, but we do have plenty of celebrity news to get excited about, so let’s dig into it!

https://tasteofcountry.com/miranda-lambert-wants-privacy-after-wedding/

Celebrity weddings gather astronomical coverage when it comes to paparazzi, fashion sites and, well, sites like our own. Miranda Lambert, who has certainly had her fair share of time in the spotlight, just wants to enjoy some privacy with her new hubbie, Brendan McLoughlin.

Married for about four months now, the newlyweds have tried their hardest to slip by photographers and the like, culminating in a little incident where Lambert asked a reporter, “If I say something, will you leave please?” Taste of Country does, however, bring up why their marriage would garner a touch more inquisition, “it’s hardly surprising that interest is high regarding Lambert’s new union. The quickie wedding has many scratching their heads in regards to its speed and remarkably hidden status.” What are your thoughts? Should celebs have a little more right to privacy?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2019/03/01/jonas-brothers-sucker-video-stars-priyanka-chopra-sophie-turner/3025872002/

Were you starting to wonder about the Jonas Brothers and how we haven’t talked about them for a while? Well don’t you worry: they have been up to plenty this year and will get to them in due time. On top of what feels like every brother getting married this year, they have officially reunited and released some new music. Most notably, their song ‘Sucker,’ which just so happens to feature the brothers’ wives.

That’s right: their catchy new song stars Kevin, Nick and Joe, along with Danielle Jonas, Sophie Turner and Pryianka Chopra. Of course the bigger news is that Sophie got hitched to Joe, but that’s a story for later.

https://www.bustle.com/p/bachelor-ben-higgins-is-hosting-the-wedding-party-event-where-12-couples-get-married-for-15k-less-16441716

Whenever we hear word of The Bachelor, we wonder what sort of gossip and scandal is going on. Luckily, this time there is something actually pretty cool. Bachelor Ben Higgins (who went after Lauren Bushnell), is now hosting a wedding event called “The Wedding Party.”

Essentially, he is taking a group of 12 couples to the Denver Polo Club in Colorado for a big, joint wedding. Explaining that he loves marriage and wants others to get married too, he said that this will allow some to do it for a “fraction of the cost.” Check out the article for more details on how to sign up. Perks are included, but the price tag is a little hefty (but certainly nowhere near planning you own).

https://www.brides.com/story/katy-perry-wants-lionel-richie-to-sing-at-her-upcoming-wedding-to-orlando-bloom

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to forget that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are engaged. Make whatever joke you want about seeing fireworks, “roaring” with excitement or what have you, but apparently the singer wants the legendary Lionel Richie to perform at their wedding, who is also a coworker of Perry on American Idol..

During an interview on Live With Kelly and Ryan, this prospect was brought up, with Richie saying, “I am so into our little marriage here, that I’ve gotta tell you I just feel like we’re part of the family.” While that seems vague, we’re holding onto hope that he will in fact perform. Fireworks not necessary.

Welcome everyone to another wonderful week of weird wedding news! With June in the rearview mirror we have officially arrived at summer and to even more weddings! The frigid winter seems so long ago, and now we can embrace the sun and warmth for a week before we start complaining about it being too hot! It’s time to get down to the updates, so let’s get cracking:

https://www.theknotnews.com/72-year-old-woman-rejected-proposals-37899?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190305.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

Proposals are one of the most nerve-wracking moments in your life. You would think that by the time you are ready to actually get down on one knee, that your partner is as ready if not more so than you are. So what happens when they say no?

Colin Jones, who this year is 72, has asked his partner Pauline around forty times. Each time, he got a “no.” The two have been together since 1976, so the persistence certainly didn’t scare Pauline off. But what gives, Pauline?

Without revealing too much of the heart-wrenching story, Pauline’s health has taken a turn for the worse which prompted her to…flip the tables shall we say. Check out the article for the full tale!

https://www.brides.com/story/kate-middleton-prince-william-pda-ireland?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190305.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

Well wouldn’t you know it, it’s time to talk about a royal couple again. This time it was Kate and William who made headlines for being a little more affectionate than what is perceived as normal.

While you might think they were full-on making out in public, the royal couple has a little bit more class than that. Back in March they were attending an event at Belfast’s Empire Music Hall, where they were caught breeching each other’s personal bubbles for hands-on-backs and arms around waists. That might seem pretty tame to you, but for these two (and not newly weds Harry and Meghan) this is certainly fresh!

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/bride-baffles-guests-wedding-cost-14087002?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190305.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

For guests of any wedding, other than the ceremony itself, the reception (along with whatever delicious food) is going to be the most exciting part of the day. Whether you have giant banquet halls of food, or something a little more intimate, that dinner brings everyone together after the bride and groom get hitched.

One bride in England has decided that she needs to cut costs for her wedding, with the major cut coming in the food department. Meaning, she won’t have any. Her friend (who is also a bridesmaid) went to social media with her concerns. Primarily, because instead of food, the money went towards a bon fire, handmade items and other potentially superfluous purchases. It appears there will also be booze, which does not bode well for anybody drinking on an empty stomach…here’s to hoping they decided to pitch in a few more pennies.

https://www.who.com.au/married-at-first-sight-jules-spotted-wedding-dress-shopping?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190305.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

Married at First Site is definitely an interesting social experiment. Putting together three random couples based on expert analysis, they agree to marry “at first sight.” So they marry the couples, send them on a honeymoon, and then move them into a house four eight weeks before deciding if they want to move on or not.

Well, one of these couples have gone the distance. Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant are reportedly getting hitched “again,” but this time a little more real. Jules was seen shopping for dresses a few months ago, and the couple was also spotted checking out engagement rings. Best of wishes to them!

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/whistles-wedding-collection-2019-best-dresses_uk_5c7cee8ae4b0614614dc4213?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190305.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign&guccounter=1

For those of you living in the UK, Whistles (a wedding dress company) has started a new bridal collection with some solidly affordable dresses. For as low as 499 euros, you can get something beautiful and fitting. Of course, there are going to be far more expensive dresses, but if you fall between sizes 4 and 16, it might be worth your time to see what they have to offer!

Check out the article for some photos of the dresses, and keep a tight hold of your wallet!

https://www.elle.com/uk/fashion/a26616669/princess-eugenie-second-wedding-dress-grace-kelly-inspired/?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190305.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

Guess what? Here’s another Royal Family article for you! This one focuses on Princess Eugenie. If you’re anything like me and have never heard of Princess Eugenie, well I’m sure glad I am not alone on this one. Her wedding to Jack Brooksbank was a lovely day as they tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle last October, but now it’s her dress that is once again garnering attention. Coming from Elle, her dress is now on display at Windsor Castle in a special exhibition. She even recorded her own audio guide for it, and shares details about both dresses (the first one showed off her scoliosis scar, while the second was inspired by Grace Kelly’s attire in To Catch a Thief). Want to know more? Be sure to hit the link!

https://www.elitedaily.com/p/idris-elbas-story-about-prince-harry-asking-him-to-dj-the-royal-wedding-is-so-dang-chill-16341638

Idris Elba, or the man who was cast as The Gunslinger in The Dark Tower and should absolutely, 100% be the next James Bond, is essentially a gift that keeps on giving. Dishing out phenomenal performances at every turn, many were surprised to learn he was a wicked DJ as well (and plays one on Netflix).

He recently told Ellen DeGeneres the story of how Prince Harry asked him to DJ his wedding to Meghan Markle. Apparently the two had known each other from over the years, and at one party Harry popped the question to him, only to be met with skepticism and shock. Don’t forget, he also performed at Coachella, too!

Seattle is a that weird time of year where it can’t quite get over the hump into Spring/Summer. Gray days still dot our weekly forecast, but the sunnier days are staying brighter and warmer for much longer. This is good news for us since we will be spending most weekends outdoors and around weddings! We have some fun, exciting and helpful articles coming your way, though do be aware that this week gets a little bit violent! Buckle up!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6747069/Shortlist-revealed-Red7s-Best-Bridesmaid-2019.html?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190302.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

Now this story is pretty cool! Over in Britain, a competition has been running to find “Britain’s Best Bridesmaid.” After receiving over 500 submissions from brides ranting and raving about their bridesmaids, the competition has been narrowed down to a select 14!

These aren’t simple, “oh my bridesmaid was the best” stories. No, these are “one woman performed an emergency medical procedure–despite having no first-aid training–and managed to save the bride’s leg from being amputated” stories. So, if you don’t have one of those stories, chances are you won’t, well, stand a chance!

Check out the article for some of the other submissions!

https://www.brides.com/gallery/bridesmaid-proposal-gift-ideas?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190302.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

While we’re on the subject of bridesmaids, why not get some ideas for gifts to give them when you pop the question for them to be a part of your wedding? Thanks to Brides.com, there are twenty great gifts to choose from and inspire you.

A good portion of the ideas are “Bridesmaid Boxes” which house any number of fun treats and treasures. Some include mini bottles of champagne, a makeover-in-a-box, and even candles or bath salts. The possibilities are seemingly endless, and you can opt to make your own or choose one from dozens of companies!

https://www.iheart.com/content/2019-02-28-groom-chokes-and-throws-brides-ex-at-wedding/?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190302.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

I’m sure it crosses every bride or groom’s mind: what if my ex shows up? I would guess that the vast majority of weddings don’t have an ex showing on up, otherwise we would likely be talking about them more if they went viral! However, we have quite the tale for you…and it’s not what it seems.

Alex and Nick were in the middle of getting married when out of nowhere, Alex’s ex shows up to ruin the day. Nick, then furious, choke-slams the intruder through a table!

But what if I told you this was all staged?

It certainly was! Both bride and groom were in on it, yet nobody else was! Check out the video for some hilarity!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6754709/Bride-slams-bakery-sent-simple-two-tier-wedding-cake-minimal-decorations.html?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190302.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

We’re capping this week off with bridezillas…and cake! It’s a little bit of “best of both worlds” as a bride-to-be took to social media to bash a cake she had received from celebrity baker Jordan Rondel of The Caker. Posting, “this is the ugliest cake I’ve ever seen. I want a full refund.” Upset that she somehow received something less than what she paid for (she did go to a celebrity baker after all) the cake does look noticeably bare aside from some flowers tucked into its two layers.

Rondel later responded “I started The Caker in 2010 and to this day have never experienced anything quite like this.” Rondel eventually refunded the money to the upset customer. Now tell us, what are your thoughts on the cake?

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!

https://www.eonline.com/news/1016599/lil-xan-s-fiancee-dishes-on-their-wedding-plans-and-baby-news

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!

https://www.whowhatwear.com/champagne-wedding-dresses/slide3

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!

https://www.brides.com/story/make-your-bridesmaids-feel-more-comfortable-on-your-big-day?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190228.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign

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!

https://yen.com.gh/123391-ghanaian-man-dumped-by-fiancee-t-afford-wedding-cake-choice.html?utm_medium=40digest.7days3.20190226.carousel&utm_source=email&utm_content=&utm_campaign=campaign#123391

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!

https://www.postbulletin.com/news/local/from-viral-video-to-the-wedding-of-a-lifetime/article_7ac48456-38ae-11e9-85b9-a7e62ad9f407.html

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!

Welcome everyone to another installment of Bizarre Wedding News! I hope everyone had a wonderful and reflective Memorial Day weekend. This week we have a few fun stories including some new forms of bridezillas, catching up with a handful of celebrities, and some tragic news about missing wedding videos. Get ready, here we go!

Another horrendous story of a production company failing to deliver the goods, this time in Florida. IT has now been over a year since Melissa got married in St. Augustine, and the only taste of her big day she’s received is a three-minute teaser trailer. She paid $800 for that, as well as the rest of the footage, but Kevin Remington of Collab-Creation Films has yet to hear back from him.

Spamming him with emails over the course of a few months, she has never heard back from him. Action News Jax also got in on the investigation and discovered that the company is indeed closed and that several reviews on theknot.com have all but confirmed what was suspected: this guy was a no-good fraud. But they also started contacting Kevin’s family…which is where things get crazy. Read the article for the shocking conclusion!

Bridezillas run rampant all the time. Not all brides end up turning into one, however the ones who do usually end up with quite the tale about their demeanor. This week will definitely ruffle some feathers and might make you question your own ethics and morality.

In the ever-heated subject of veganism, many people just try to keep to themselves about their eating habits and not force them upon others. One bride, however, posted to a vegan Facebook group about how she was going to require all of her wedding guests to eat from a vegan menu at her wedding. Normally, this may not be a huge issue. There are plenty of delicious vegan foods (many of which people like me can’t eat because I’m allergic to soy, nuts and legumes, but that’s neither here nor there), but it’s how she doubled-down on the claim that made her an enemy,

In an attempt to give contect, she claimed “some family members were told they are not invited to my wedding because we don’t want to host murderers. Our wedding is supposed to be one of the happiest days of our lives.” Her mother and two cousins were then barred from the wedding. Vegans and vegetarians out there, do you share this sentiment? Or do you want your guests to eat meat and other animal products at your wedding?

Most people really don’t want their exes around in general. There is probably a good reason you broke up, after all, but if you can stand each other’s presences, then more power to you!

But a wedding is the one place you typically don’t want anyone around with romantic history. Brides.com surveyed several people whose exes actually ended up at their weddings and the reasons will surprise you.

Sometimes people get lucky, like Tami, who claims that “you don’t have to hate an ex when the relationship is over.” Her ex was always a better friend than a lover, so they just stayed that way without any bumps or pain!

Another one was more pre-emptive than anything, Raquel claims that “I just felt like if my ex was going to be at my wedding, I didn’t want to have anxiety about him showing up unexpectedly or crashing the party.” So she invited him, and he respectfully declined! Sometimes things do work out ok!

https://www.wmagazine.com/story/jennifer-lawrence-engagement-ring-dior?

After her spree of Oscar-nominated movies, Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t quite been making the same waves as before. But that’s about to change as she got engaged back at the beginning of February. After a brief fling with director Darren Aronofsky, Lawrence is now engaged to art dealer Cooke Maroney. The engagement is news in itself, but the ring on her finger should be sending the Breaking News alerts out.

The ring made its first public appearance at Dior’s Paris Fashion Show (Lawrence herself is signed by Dior) and boy is the thing is massive. When you look at the giant emerald-cut diamond, you’ll notice it’s hardly being supported by the tiny band around her finger. No word has been announced about the date for the wedding, but you can bet we will be covering it when it happens!

Glee star Lea Michele has been engaged for over a year now to AYR president Zandy Reich, and you can bet the musical actress is ecstatic for just about every aspect of the wedding…but particularly the food. She was quoted in PureWow as saying, “On Sunday, I requested for a bagel bar with every kind of bagel and every kind of spread and Bloody Marys.” Her hubbie-to-be, a Philadelphia-native, had some food ideas for himself, asking for a Philly cheesesteak bar.

She then corrected herself saying that she really is excited to being around “everyone I love. All together, everyone that’s there with me and Zandy.” Either way, we’re excited to see this wedding happen! Check back in later to when it happens for more coverage!

Welcome everyone it’s time to get happy and excited with bizarre wedding news! This week won’t have nearly as many twists as everything else going on in pop culture, but hopefully it’s enough to keep you satiated until the final Game of Thrones episode or new Spider-Man movie with potential villains, throwbacks and more!

https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/couple-slam-backlash-crowdfunding-wedding-money-grabbing-people

Crowdfunding has become quite popular in recent days. Whether it is for a dream come true, helping out with medical costs or, yes, by trying to get funds to build that Mexico wall…you can assist hundreds of people with your wallet. So it would make sense that people are now using it for their weddings…with some unexpected consequences.

A little while ago, a British couple discovered they were well short of their desired budget for their big wedding. After saving for over a year, they still needed $5,800. So they made a GoFundMe page and started asking for donations instead of presents. In three weeks, they put a decent dent in their goal…but then they got publicized by local media which sent things into a tailspin resulting in online criticisms and backlash. But you’ll have to check the article to see what really happens!

Some celebrity weddings just don’t seem to die down, and this week we’re back focusing on the Cyrus/Hemsworth event back in December! We have two stories about the wedding to go over, so let’s start with the attire. Knowing Miley, we know she isn’t the most conventional person, so it would make sense that her original wedding did not feature a Vivienne Westwood gown and all that other fanciness. Rather, she wanted some of life’s simple pleasures: to wear a hoodie and leggings down the aisle, and to grub on vegan chicken and dumplings. Alas, they opted for the fancy route and I think they chose quite nicely!

Next up: the name! When it comes to celebrity weddings, for the sake of recognizability or otherwise, most celebs don’t take the name of their spouse. Miley Cyrus, however, is now Miley Ray Hemsworth. Hubby Liam Hemsworth explained in an interview that Miley came up with the idea on her own, and suggested it to Liam before their wedding. Check out the article for some more married-life updates!

Katie Couric had quite the breaking news story back in February: her daughter Ellie Monahan got engaged! The 27-year-old is now engaged to Mark, and the proposal even comes with some sentimentality. When Mark dropped to the knee, he used the ring that Ellie’s late father had used to propose to Katie back in the 90s. Obviously very excited, Katie’s Instagram post is mostly composed of a dozen “OMGs.” We can’t wait for the wedding!

This next article is going to call for some judgement on your part, so buckle in! We all know weddings cost a pretty penny. Especially the venues. And especially for weddings. One guy in Australia recognized that venues up the charge for an event if it is indeed a wedding. So, he simply told venues and caterers that he was having a “party.” Not the most grave lie to be told before a wedding, but a lie nonetheless.

The first mistake this guy made was lying, his second mistake was telling all of this to his ex-girlfriend, who had texted him to check on the updates for his big day. What did she do with this information? She screenshotted the texts and posted them to Facebook. Like with anything hitting the internet that causes even the most minor controversy, people voiced their angry opinions. The article does not give any updates on if the guy got to go through with his “party,” but we have to imagine all of his vendors were none too pleased.
