Hitched 2.0: 10 Questions To Ask A Potential Venue

When we started venue-hunting, we had literally no clue what we were doing. On the outside, we tried to appear to be a sophisticated, knowledgeable couple touring each potential venue. On the inside, we were two clueless twenty-somethings wondering what the hell we were supposed to ask these events directors and catering managers to avoid awkward silences or complete embarrassment. After a few (okay, several) appointments, though, we started to pick up on what kind of information we were supposed to be gathering. To help you avoid the same slow-moving progress, go to each venue meeting armed with this list of crucial questions. Keep reading »

Brooklyn Couple’s Love Is Out Of This World

Self-proclaimed sci-fi addicts Noah Fulmore and Erin Finnegan will be the first couple to get married in zero gravity on June 20.

Modern Romeos And Juliets Can Proclaim Vows In Verona

Bring your own Romeo to this 13th century Veronese mansion and you could feel as romantic as Shakespeare’s most famous couple. Verona’s town council is now allowing couples to get married on the balcony of the Capello family mansion. It’s believed that the Capellos were the Capulets in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, so lovers across the world have flocked to this mansion to scrawl love vandals on its walls. The privilege of exchanging vows isn’t as costly as Romeo and Juliet’s fatal love affair, but it isn’t cheap either. Non-European lovers can expect to pay nearly 900 euros, or about $1,288. Soccer star Luca Ceccarelli and his Juliet, er… bride were the first to take advantage of this new wedding venue. “I feel very emotional. You know, marriage always gives strong emotions especially in a situation like this,” said Ceccarelli to Reuters before he and his bride exchanged rings. “We hope that this bring us a lot of luck.”
