Santa’s Helpers Get Married

The Santa Claus World Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark, brings together Santas from around the world, and this year, the event got off to a cute start with a wedding between Rune Hamrath Hansen (who has elf ears!) and Sine Andersen. The two married in a Christmas-themed wedding. Andersen wore a red dress and veil and Hansen sported an outfit that looks like what elves wear while making toys in Santa’s workshop. Do the two just really love Christmas and Jolly Old St. Nick? We have no idea, but we bet the bride wore green lingerie under her dress. [AP] Keep reading »

An Extra Special Star Trek Wedding

Star Trek nerds (Me! Simcha!) rejoice — GeekSugar discovered that the “Star Trek Experience” attraction at the Hilton in Las Vegas offers not one, not two, but five Star Trek-themed wedding packages for geeky visitors wishing to have a Jean-Luc Picard lookalike conduct their ceremony. And, depending on the package, up to four other Star Trek characters will be in attendance. Do you think that instead of saying “I Do” you’re supposed to say “Aye, Aye Sir” instead?

    Who Wants Their Wedding Theme To Be “Tacky”?

    Whoa. I’ve heard of theme parties, but never theme weddings. Our girl Erin, who’s an Editor over at Shine, posted about the increasing popularity of theme weddings and equated the trend with the prevalence of bad tattoos. But one particular link within her story caught our eye: WedThemes.com. The site has literally hundreds of tickety-tackety wedding theme ideas, from “your favorite creatures such as dolphins, doves, butterflies and other insects, birds, and fish”, to “sorcery and enchantment await your guests when they witness the wedding magic of your wizard’s wedding.” So that got me thinking about what my dream theme wedding would be, were I the type of person who would invest time and money into such a thing. Catherine said, “I would totally do a ’30s or ’40s theme wedding — not a flapper wedding, like from the ’20s, but something very retro. Or, because I have Scottish-blood, maybe I would do a Scottish wedding and wear my family tartan as my wedding dress. Can I do that? I don’t think that white is really a good color for me.” As for me, I think I would do something extraordinarily over the top, like a Marie Antoinette-themed wedding, with powdered wigs and bustles and little mini cakes.
