It’s Time To Cry: After Bride’s Death, Bridesmaids Wear Their Gowns To A Mud Race In Her Honor

Bridesmaids
Heartbreaking

Shannon Hall, a 24-year-old from central Wisconsin, was set to marry on October 4 when she tragically lost her life two weeks ago in a car accident. She’s survived by five brothers and four sisters, and all of her sisters were to be bridesmaids in her wedding. Before her passing, they’d signed up for the Udder Mudder charity mud race, and Shannon had urged the ladies to do the race in formal dresses. Since they’ll no longer be wearing their bridesmaids dresses next month, the women decided they’d be the perfect attire for the race. On Saturday, 27 people who knew and loved Shannon teamed up to make it through the obstacle course. Shannon’s fiance, Justin Cyzan, was in the accident with Shannon and is still recovering from his injuries, but he was able to photograph the event. For a few hours, the grieving family had a reason to smile and laugh again — and to make Shannon proud. [ABC]

Coming To A Wedding Near You: 2,400 Krispy Kreme Donuts

Krispy Kreme UK has just unveiled its Double Hundred Dozen, an 11.5 ft long box packed to the brim with 2,400 donuts. The box is so gigantic that it took 8 people to lift it into a delivery truck. The double dozen was shared to celebrate the company’s neq Occasions program, which caters to weddings and corporate events with large-scale deliveries. Who needs a seven-layer cake or a cupcake platter when you can have this sticky, glaze-covered box of gluttony at your wedding reception? You’d think I’d be more repulsed by this sugary path to clogged arteries, and I totally am — in theory. Getting yourself a 2,400-pack of donuts is probably one of the worst life decisions you can make, and yet, I’m now craving a donut harder than I ever have in my life. Keep reading »

Guy Stages An Entire Faux Wedding To Propose To His Girlfriend

Just Like A Romantic Comedy

I still feel like 99 percent of public proposals are awkward and self-centered, but this one gets a pass for all the effort that went into it. Wedding planner Jack has seen thousands of nuptials play out over the years, making him pretty much on expert on all things romance. When it came time to propose to his own girlfriend, Jack staged an elaborate faux wedding to pop the question. It’s undeniably adorable. [People]

Pinterest Accidentally Congratulates Single Women On Getting Engaged

Among the many, many ladies who make wedding boards on Pinterest, a pretty epic percentage of them don’t have a fiance (or even a significant other). That seems to be common knowledge for Pinterest users — some single pinners could care less about what people think of the cutesy board of place settings they put together in between spreadsheets at the office. Others are more a fan of what can only be called a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and expect that nobody on the interwebs acknowledge their not-so-engaged status because despite the lack of a wedding on the horizon they happen to enjoy looking at the design aspects of reception decor, thank you very much. Instead, Pinterest awkwardly sent a bunch of single women emails congratulating them on their engagement. Weirder still is that while some of the email recipients have pinned things like invitations or dresses, many of them have never pinned any wedding-related content. Ugh, interwebs, please do not use womankind’s collective inbox as yet another place to nag us about marriage. I don’t know about the rest of you, but my Facebook newsfeed and annual interrogations about my personal life at Thanksgiving dinner do that job all on their own. Keep reading »

10 Things That Would Have Made Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Way More Interesting

This past weekend, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally tied the knot in France after nine years and six kids together, and the details of their big day are just being released. As you can imagine, everything about the nuptials sounded magical from the scent of rosemary and jasmine wafting into the chapel, to the magnificent French and Italian cuisine served afterwards. I’m sure it was a lovely day and all, but don’t you kind of wish Jen Aniston delivered them a big, steamy bag of dog poop from a drone right as they were about to say “I do”? I know I do. Here are 10 other things that didn’t happen, but totally would have made the Brangie wedding more interesting.  Keep reading »

Somebody Take Me To A Kitten-Themed Wedding

Kittens
My Invitation Must Have Gotten Lost In The Mail

Happily Wedding, a wedding planning company in California, has opened up a whole new market — cat weddings. In case kitten-themed seating arrangements, feline cake toppers, the “glitter box,” and stationery marked “Furrever” wasn’t enough to make the perfect wedding day for cat-loving couple Kiera and Zach, they were then treated to the surprise arrival of kittens brought in specially to witness their wedding. I hope the cats had fun and didn’t feel too much like props, but if the video is any indication, it looks like their adventure that day was just as epic as the newlyweds’. To support the homeless kitties, Happily asked that anyone looking to adopt contact the Second Hand Souls Animal Rescue and Animal Actors. For cat loving ladies like myself, this ceremony may sound too good to be true, but a day like this can be yours for a cool $25,000. (What, you didn’t just have that laying around for your someday fantasy wedding?) Congrats to the happy couple! [The Gloss]
