Welcome everyone to a brand new week of Bizarre Wedding News. As we barrel towards the 2019 wedding season, prepping along the way for all the spectacular ceremonies we are bound to witness, we still have to make time to keep you all informed about the wild world of weddings! This week we’ve got some new life, weird piercings, a French wedding--and yes, cake. Be ready: this week might make your skin crawl a little.
While this doesn’t have anything to do with a wedding ceremony perse, celebrity wedding planner David Tutera, and his husband Joey Troth, just had a baby girl last month through a surrogate. Her name is Stella Toth-Tutera. David already has one child from a previous marriage, Cielo, who is five-years-old. If the name Tutera is at all familiar, it might be because back in 2013, he broke up with his ex, Ryan Jurica, who he had hired another surrogate for that would eventually produce twins. The controversy arose from the fact that the two were going to raise the fraternal twins separately.
Nonetheless, congratulations are in order for the happy couple!
One of Brides.com best publications is their “Wedding of the Day,” and their one for January 22 is quite the doozy! Following Caroline and Courtney, two Australian nurses who had met in 2011 and started dating in 2013. Back in 2017, Courtney asked Caroline to marry her in a romantic little picnic at the beach.
With Caroline being Irish, they thought they should at least get married in Europe. They had decided the “high chance of rain eliminated Ireland,” as an option, but they finally landed on the highly luxurious South of France. To be exact, the Chateau De Robernier. The 16th century venue is just drop-dead amazing. It really feels like royalty based simply on the pictures, though we can hardly imagine what it must have been like getting to walk the grounds! Check out the article for a full breakdown of the day!
Brace yourselves, things are about to get weird. A new trend known as Finger Piercings is slowly taking over and making its way for the wedding industry. Instead of popping a ring on your finger, you can get it embedded in your skin just below the surface. These have been around for a while, and practically speaking they aren’t too favorable considering how easy it can be for it to get caught on something, and well...you know. The article states that “the ring finger takes roughly a year to maybe accept the embedded ring.” That’s right. Your body might not even accept it. Remember our article last time about smoke bombs at weddings? Add this one to the list of no-thank-yous.
With that out of the way, there’s no better way to wrap up the week than to talk even more about the Royal Wedding between Meghan and Harry. More specifically, however, about their cake. Noted for not sticking with tradition, the Royal couple chose a three-tier sponge cake (though “simple” it actually cost around 50,000 euros), which consisted of Lemon and Elderberry.
For those who didn’t get a seat at the wedding (or those unwilling to pay for the slices from eBay), you can now buy the uniquely flavored cakes in the form of Mr. Kiplings slices. Note, however, that this is “lemonade” and not simply lemon. For being on the cheap, you really do get to taste royalty...but only if you live in England or want to have some imported over here.
That does it for this weeks folks! Hopefully the cake made up for the nasty piercings. As always, if you have anything you want to share or see, let us know and we will make it happen!
