The countdown is officially on for the first celebrity wedding of 2013! As we brace ourselves in anticipation, there are still a few 2012 affairs that we just can’t forget….even if we wanted to.
1) Bigger isn’t always better- especially when it comes to the headpiece
If you were wondering what was with the babushka wrapped around Anne Hathaway’s head when she married Adam Schulman in September, you weren’t alone. If you couldn’t even tell that was Anne Hathaway drowning in the overwhelming mass of tulle, you still weren’t alone.
Anne dazzled in her custom Valentino gown which featured a tulle neckline and flowing skirt. The problem is that a little tulle goes a long way and in an attempt to hide her newly cropped locks, Anne took the tulle to the extreme.
2) Déjà vu
Mario Lopez wed gorgeous Courtney Mazza during a lavish December 2012 soiree in Punta Mitas, Mexico. Fans could experience every detail of the romantic event on TLC’s special “Mario and Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta.” After spending a good portion of the two hour show drooling over Mario’s dimples and fawning over Courtney’s not one but two custom Ines DiSanto, something seemed off.
No matter how cute the new Mr. and Mrs. Lopez are, I couldn’t help but have flashbacks to the previous Mr. and Mrs. Lopez and their Mexican wedding special. Mario’s first wedding was in 2004 to actress Ali Landry and they tied the knot in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Lets hope the second marriage works out better than the first since Landry had the marriage annulled after only two weeks and a cheating scandal.
Does anyone else think that it’s in bad taste to agree to a wedding special when this is your second time around, this wedding is extremely similar to the first, and the previous marriage combusted so publicly? Either way, there is no comparison between Mazza’s and Landry’s (better known as Bride 2 and Bride 1’s) wedding fashion…again with the headpiece!
3) Glamping with the stars
A thin Matthew McConaughey married an even thinner Camila Alves during a three-day extravaganza in June. The 120 star-studded guests made the treck for this “destination” affair and were put up in high-end tents complete with air conditioning– of course. This elegant yet family- centered affair proved that you don’t need to pick the most exotic spot to have a successful destination wedding. If you settle on a location where the flights or accommodations are so expensive that most of your guests can’t afford to attend, then what’s the point?
