Since I last wrote you, my dear seven readers, Spain won the World Cup, Proposition 8 was overturned by a federal judge, and my Betrothed and I moved in together. I'll spare you the sordid details of my own wedding planning (at least for now), and give you instead the fruits of my research. Behold: THE. MOST. AWESOME. WEDDINGS. EVER.*
SURPRISE BACKYARD WEDDING
You are invited to celebrate the engagement of Marisa and John...SIKE! Here's how you pull off a wedding in 7 days, people. Note her brother's amazing toast and how she scored a Romona Keveza dream dress.
ORPHANAGE IN INDIA
Aretha Delight Davis and Dr. Angelo Elpithoforos Volandes got married in an orphanage in India and asked friends and family for donations rather than gifts to set up a scholarship fund for all 95 girls in the orphanage. Indian weddings are awesome anyway, but how about having 95 girls who will be like cousins to your children helping you get ready for the big day? The joy is palpable.
PUERTO FRICKIN' RICO
Oscar de la Renta gown. Spanish architecture. A procession through Old San Juan. A Puerto Rican percussion band, and, of course, FOOD! This professional wedding designer's wedding was so awesome, she used it as the cover story to launch her own lifestyle magazine. Is that a tax write-off?
