Popular American Idol alum Colton Dixon married in Nashville this month, to his lovely girlfriend Annie Coggeshall. Chrisitian singer Colton, 24 and Annie, 27, tied the knot in a black tie ceremony on Friday January 8 after three years as a couple. The event took place at the Scarritt Bennett Center before 160 of their friends and family.

People.com provided several exclusive photos of the wedding, and described it as having both “fantasy” and “fairytale” elements. Apparently the fairytale began with the couple’s romantic September engagement at Disney World (Colton even hid the engagement ring in Cinderella’s glass slipper).

The “fantasy” element came into play based on Colton’s love for batman and other comic book heroes. Apparently Colton even has a life-sized batman costume at his home. Colton’s mother Teresa gifted her son and his groomsmen with superhero t-shirts to wear under their wedding attire, adding a wonderful playful and personal touch to the couple’s beautiful day.

Annie wore a stunning strapless organza gown by (who else?) renowned designer Vera Wang, that was truly Cinderella-worthy. Colton’s sister Schyler Dixon shared her own snaps, with the caption ” “Beautiful bride #coltannwedding.” She also performed the gospel favorite How Great Thou Art during the ceremony.

Colton admits that he wept when he first saw Annie come down the aisle. During the ceremony, romantic Colton then serenaded his new bride with Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love.

The couple’s exit at the end of the night included another fairytale element: Colton and Annie departed together in (of course) a horse-drawn carriage totally reminiscent of a classic Cinderella coach.

Phillip Phillips, 2012 American idol winner and top recording artist, married long-time girlfriend Hannah Blackwell on Saturday, October 24 in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. The pair wed at the Resora Plantation in Albany, Georgia, in front of 250 close friends and family.

Hannah wore a beautiful Hayley Paige wedding gown, while Phillip rocked a Billy Reid tuxedo. The pair exchanged vows under a huge oak tree on the Plantation, and then continued the celebration with a true Southern-style party.

The large wedding party rocked chic black bridesmaid dresses of varied styles. “They’re all actually wearing different dresses, because one is pregnant and one just had a baby, so I said everybody do what you want to do,” Blackwell says about her bridesmaids’ attire. “They can all have their own personality.”

The couple first met almost seven years ago a charity event for Phillips’ sister’s organization Mission Change,. Their reception was catered by Merry Acres Catering, who helped create the Southern menu for the buffet stations the couple chose over a sit down dinner.  The menu included bacon and tomato sandwiches, okra roll-ups, mini country ham biscuits, shrimp and grits and bacon-wrapped water chestnuts. There was also a mashed potato bar at the reception.

Instead of having a traditional groom’s cake, Phillips chose to serve miniature hot skillet chocolate chip cookies with ice cream.

Romantic Phillip and a close friend wrote the song for his first dance with his wife. . “I might be crying while I’m dancing with you,” he told Hannah.

And what about our favorite part, the flowers? These were perfect for a Southern belle, such as pale peach and pink roses, pale green and white hydrangeas, and other assorted greens. Hannah described their reception as ” a little fancy, but not too fancy. All the flowers are really natural flowers, like really light pink or ivory.”

If you love Hannah’s look, become your own “Southern Belle” with these BunchesDirect bridal bouquet suggestions: Pink Dreamland, Touch of Peach, Hint of Softness, or Hold me Close bridal bouquets. More at the website. We wish Phillip and Hannah all the best!

Isabella Cruise is starting married life in Croydon, England after tying the knot last month without her famous parents in attendance. Isabella, 22, a makeup artist, married Max Parker, IT consultant, on September 18 in a very intimate ceremony in London. Father Tom Cruise did not join the couple but reportedly picked up the tab.

Photo from dailymail.co.uk

The ceremony was held in a private function room of the very posh Dorchester Hotel, in accordance with the Scientology traditions that Isabelle shares with her father. Isabelle’s mother Nicole Kidman was also not present at the wedding, but according to sources helped plan some of the elements and is said to be happy for her daughter. Brother Connor was also a no-show, apparently to keep the nuptials as low-key as possible.

The couple are moving from their current London address to a new one on the outskirts of the city, in an area more familiar to Max’s family.

Justin Theroux appeared on an episode of Ellen on October 14, and shared a few more deets about his wedding day and his wife, Jennifer Aniston. Ellen also brought out a hilarious mannequin of Jennifer (see photo above). Ellen, who was a guest at the wedding, marvelled at how long they were able to keep a secret and Justin verified that they were able to do so by sending out birthday party invitations. He revealed that they originally planned to share the secret with certain key guests, but then decided it was a bad idea.

“We thought, ‘We’re gonna tell some people this and some people that.’… We kind of realized that was a terrible plan. You’re basically telling half your guests, ‘You’re unemployed and we can’t trust you.’ Which is, of course, not the case.”Justin said that if certain guests expressed that they may not be able to make the “birthday” party, he and Aniston pressured them a bit harder. During the segment, Justin also revealed that his wife has a big fear—motorcycles! Justin adores them but apparently Jennifer doesn’t like the feeling of loss of control. Check out “EllenTube” to watch Justin tell all: https://youtu.be/owAkQQ839Bo

All of us were surprised (and most of us delighted) by the news that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had finally tied the knot. The pair made things official in the backyard of their own home on August 5, 2015.

Every tabloid featured regular posts about the couple’s status, telling us that they were already married, about to be married, planning their wedding, having a baby, breaking up, reuniting, holidaying or other such updates. It’s little wonder that Jen and Justin decided to dupe the paparazzi and media and host a secret ceremony.

They managed to keep it secret from even their closest friends, with Jennifer saying “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” They pulled off the surprise by telling guests they were coming to a birthday party for Justin. They managed to hide the preparations by renting out a nearby mansion and ferrying items over to their home with discreet trips and cover of trees.

Photo From People.com

Guests included close friends such as Courtney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Howard Stern, Lisa Kudrow, Chelsea Handler, and Emily Blunt among others. Jimmy Kimmel officiated. The backyard was set up with multiple tables and backless chairs, featuring romantic lighting in trees with candles on the tables. Their cake was topped by a funny Muppet version of the couple.

News broke that Jennifer wore an $8400 Mark Zunino gown when one of the consultants on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress let a comment slip, but we are still waiting for more photos and official confirmation as to what Jen wore.

The outdoor celebration lasted late into the night. The couple then departed on a romantic honeymoon at the Four Seasons resort in Bora Bora.

We did get a better look at Jennifer’s wedding ring as she cruised the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie She’s Funny That Way in Los Angeles.

Jennifer looked glowing and relaxed in a Roland Mouret jumpsuit. Her wedding ring features two bands of gold with a row of diamonds between, in a simple but elegant presentation. What do you think of it? Justin was spotted with his own gold wedding band in place (good man) at LAX earlier in the week.

Jennifer stated that she is “deliriously happy” to be a newlywed after her three-year engagement. We wish them all the best…and we can’t wait to see more photos of the flowers! Our picks for Jen and Justin? A Dreamy Cloud or Simply White bridal bouquet would perfectly suit Jen’s sleek, simple elegance.

For those of us who don’t have the budget to simply hire Mindy Weiss Designs to plan our wedding or event, we can still turn to her books, website and television events for some fabulous inspiration. Check out these awesome tips when planning your own wedding or event decorations.

Four Seasons LA Amy & Stuart Photography

1. Use bouquets as a floral display or centerpiece at the reception. At the Four Seasons in Los Angeles, Mindy used simple bridal bouquets and artfully displayed them in glass vases of various shapes. Keep your flowers all one color and the vases clear to make this display work despite the different flower types and vase shapes. White lisianthus, hydrangeas, orchids or mini calla lilies would all provide the elegant impact. All these blooms are available in bulk at BunchesDirect so you can make your own bouquet arrangement just like Mindy’s. We also provide you with ready-made bouquets for added stress relief. Try Classic White Hydrangea bouquets, for example, and you are ready to go!

2. Centerpieces don’t have to be elaborate to have a lot of “wow” factor. These gorgeous centerpieces were also made for the Four Seasons LA, out of artfully arranged calla lilies and beautiful white roses twined over a glass candelabra. Simple, but so stylish!

3. Attach bouquets of flowers to each pew with beautiful fabric bows for an gorgeous decorative touch at the ceremony, as Mindy did at the Four Seasons Biltmore. Tulips are shown here, available in season and in bulk at BunchesDirect, but other favorite flowers would be dazzling also. If you want to keep things elegant, stick to one color and one type of bloom for more impact.

4. Embellish accents like this small section of fencing at an outdoor wedding, using fresh greens and flowers. Blooms such as white or cream roses, godetias, lisianthus, peonies, green hydrangeas, and greens such as eucalyptus or palm fronds would all make amazing floral accents. Buy in bulk and attach with floral wire! Hang vintage lanterns for an even more romantic effect.

Hotel Bel Air Curtis Dahl Photography

5. Buy bulk roses in pastel shades like cream, pink and lavender for a simple but beautiful way to embellish the seating card table, as Mindy’s team did at the Hotel Bel Air.

6. Don’t overlook the details! Even small touches can have big impact on your guest experience. Buy bulk flowers such as roses or red ranunculus and add a simple, perfect bloom alongside the menus at your guest place settings.

Well much of the fashion world went into buzzing overdrive the minute Lady Gaga announced her engagement. What would this fashion diva actually wear down the aisle on such an important day? After all, Mother Monster has famously (or infamously) rocked everything from feathers to bubbles to meat, so there is no telling what she kind of statement she might want to make on her wedding day.

Gaga, 28, got engaged to Taylor Kinney, 33, this past Valentine’s Day weekend after he proposed to her and presented an inscribed, heart-shaped diamond ring. She and Kinney first met in 2011 while filming the video for her song You and I. After a brief split in 2012 they reunited and are soon headed for wedded bliss.

To prepare for her big day, Lady Gaga has just dyed her hair platinum blonde, suggesting she will forgo one of her signature wigs. She had good friend and stylist Patti Song achieve the new blonde look, documenting the process on her Instagram account.

For her choice of dress? Gaga vows, “it will be totally for Taylor. It’s all about my man. I haven’t really thought about anything specific yet, but whatever it is, it will be totally for him.”
