I just can’t seem to get away from the celebrity weddings this week! This morning I watched as Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced on The View that Sherri Shepherd had asked her to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding. It seems like only yesterday that Sherri was determined to maintain her vow of celibacy now, and now she is suddenly planning a wedding.

Sherri has also requested that Barbara Walters, her boss at The View,  hire a stripper for the bridal shower she has been asked to plan for Sherri. We’ll be watching to see what Sherri has in mind for her upcoming nuptials!

Remember Jodie Sweetin from Full House? She’s engaged as well. The 29 year old was celebrating her birthday with family and friends when boyfriend, Morty Coyle, popped the question.

Thirty years after the death of Princess Grace, son Prince Albert II of Monaco has announced his engagement to South African Olympic swimmer, Charlene Wittstock. Giorgio Armani is said to be designing Wittstock’s bridal gown for  the July 2 wedding.

Rumor has it Serena Williams is sporting a new engagement ring from hip-hop star, Common (yeah, I’ve never heard of him either.)

Natalie Portman is another celeb to watch this spring as she plans her own wedding to Benjamin Millepied.

The Will and Kate Update: Bruce Oldfield to Design Royal Wedding Gown

Posted on January 17th, 2011 by Mandy Webster

While palace insiders have confirmed Kate Middleton has indeed chosen a designer for her bridal gown, they have not yet released the details of whom she has chosen. However, those in the know speculate that it will be Bruce Oldfield, a favorite of Prince William’s late mother, the Princess Diana.

Official Royal Wedding Update from ABC News

In other royal wedding news, the Queen has reportedly offered to allow Will and Kate to live at Buckingham Palace after their April 29th wedding. But, will they take her up on this generous offer? After all, what new bride wants to live with her new husband’s grandmother? Especially if she’s used to being in charge (of everything) like the Queen of England! Read more »

Katy Perry & Russell Brand, Brangelina… and You? The Hot New Multicultural Wedding Trend

Rocker Katy Perry and comedian Russell Brand married October 23 at the Oberoi Vanyavilas Hotel in Ranthambore, India. And now, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are rumored to be planning a similar wedding this Valentine’s Day. With the celebs lighting a fire under this latest wedding trend, can we expect to see an excess of India themed weddings this year?

While I’ve always had a hankering for India myself, I don’t know that the average American will be rushing to jump on this trend. For most, the wedding ceremony is a very personal event, full of tradition. So, while I don’t believe most of us will be attending India themed weddings in 2011, I do foresee a growing trend toward multicultural weddings celebrating the plethora of cultures that make up the American people.

-A picture of Katy Perry and Russell Brand accompanies an official report of their wedding day at CNN Entertainment’s Marquee Blog.

-Unfortunately, I was unable to find even a single picture of the couple in their wedding finery (a couple of sites claim to have images, but none of them match, so I don’t believe them,) but I did find tons of pics of Russell Brand and his bodyguards by the L.A. Times. While Times photographers were unable to capture the happy couple, they did manage to snap a pic of an elephant, the likes of which Brand was rumored to have arrived to the ceremony on. The Rambagh Palace, which is also pictured, was rumored as a possible location for the couple’s top secret wedding. While they didn’t marry there, it would have been a beautiful location!

-Saman, from Studio Sila blogs on how to get that exotic Indian look on the Maharani Weddings blog. You HAVE to click through to both of these sites to see the images they have posted. The glittering jewels and sultry makeup are so much prettier than the plain white dress and pearls I wore when I got married. I only wish I could pull off this fantastic look with my pasty skin!
