Woo hoo! We’re back for another week of Bizarre Wedding News! This time we’ve got some fun with dates, a few typos, a celebrity anniversary and wedding, so are you ready? August has been a fun and exciting month, what with toasty weather, bright skies (for the most part) and the unfortunate scent and sight of the dastardly forest fire smoke, though the last part really isn’t fun and exciting at all.
We love Ellen, and we also love Arrested Development, which makes the marriage between Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi so flipping wonderful. This year marks their tenth wedding anniversary. To commemorate the event, the Ellen DeGeneres Show shared a short video that contained footage of their wedding and celebration, and boy is it a tear jerker. So, be sure to have a few tissues (or a box) at the ready, when you watch it!
For some couples, wedding rings just aren’t nearly enough to immortalize the bond between spouses. You can name a star after your bride, or lock a padlock on a bridge in Paris.
Or you can get a tattoo.
But for the love of all that is good, please be sure to at least get the date right. As one newlywed man came to find out, most women are not ok if you get your wedding date tattooed incorrectly on your finger. It also probably doesn’t help that it took him about six weeks to realize the typo. Fortunately the bride wasn’t entirely too upset and actually saw a lot of humor in it, as her husband is a plasterer and would potentially lose any ring during work.
The good news is, he most likely has it fixed by now!
Did you feel anything different about August 18? A sort of calming in the air? A great surge of loving energy? Anything at all?
Well if you didn’t you’re perfectly ok, it’s just that it was a rather big deal in the wedding world. According to The Knot, there were at least 28,000 weddings planned for that day. Why? Because people are lazy and don’t want to remember dates, that’s why! What’s easier than saying 8/18/18? Well, sure, plenty of other dates, but I can already tell you that next year is going to be crazy in September with 9/19/19. Because after that, there’s no cool dates until 2/22/2022
Don’t believe us? We had two weddings on that day and we had been getting phone calls for reservations since as far back as 2016! Congrats Ally and Paul, and Mike and Mallory!
People are so weird when it comes to numbers, huh?
In one final celebrity-related wedding, rapper 2 Chainz got married this month to Kesha Ward. The wedding itself isn’t really what we’re here to talk about, but rather the groom’s traditional dance with his mom, which is absolutely, 100% adorable. Sharing their dance to Frankie Beverly’s “Before I Let Go,” they both pull out their best moves to show everyone who’s boss. Don’t believe me? Watch the video and try not to dance along!
And there you have it for another great week of stories! As you already probably know, we are always looking for new stories and fun ideas to write about, so please let us know below if you have anything!
