Summer Wedding Bells for Celebs
With the beginning of May upon us, wedding season is in full swing. Summer is one of the most popular times to get married, something that holds true even in the celebrity wedding world. With so many recent engagements in Hollywood, there’s sure to be plenty of wedding bells in the near future.
Getting ready to tie the knot
Rumor has it that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, or Kimye, will be wed on May 24 in a chateau in France. Though reports have been filtering in that Kim and Kanye have secretly gotten hitched already, Kardashian finally revealed that it’s not true. After all, when have Kardashian and West done anything less than big? After a rather public courtship, West made an over-the-top proposal to Kardashian on Feb. 16 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park with family and friends there to witness the extravagant event.
There have been numerous reports about their wedding plans swirling around ever since, including the possibility of James Franco and Seth Rogen performing their parody of West’s Bound 2, which Kardashian loved. The most recent Kimye wedding buzz centers on the possibility of Beyonce Knowles as one of Kardashian’s bridesmaids, though that seems like a long shot given how close Kardashian is to her sisters. But no matter who makes an appearance in the wedding party, we’re sure every detail will be just as glamorous as Karedashian and West themselves.
Poker stars Kara Scott and Giovanni Rizzo are set to be married this May, too. Sweetheart of the poker circuit, Scott is just as heavily involved in the poker community as soon-to-be hubby Rizzo, though we would say she might bring a little more to the table in the looks department. Scott was named one of the 16 hottest poker players by Maxim, a quality that has to make it at least a little easier on her competitors when they lose.
After dating for a year, Rizzo proposed in romantic Venice, Italy last April, in the exact same spot where he and Scott shared their first kiss. It seems like prince charming does exist, and not just in a Disney movie. Scott and Rizzo’s summer wedding is sure to be just as adorably perfect and fairy tale-esque as these two lovebirds are.
Couples on our wedding radar
Though these celebrity pairs haven’t announced when their walk down the aisle will be just yet, signs show that they’ll be sending out save-the-dates soon.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been engaged since April 2012 and have been dating even longer. After meeting on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2005 while Pitt was still with Jennifer Anniston, their relationship went public and the media went wild. America took sides soon after, and fans are still split between Team Jolie and Team Anniston. All the attention hasn’t seemed to spoil Pitt and Jolie’s happy union however. After six kids and nine years together, it only makes sense that this power duo will be making their way down the aisle soon.
Jennifer Aniston has since moved on from Pitt with Justin Theroux, who proposed two summers ago, in August 2012. The quintessential girl-next-door, Anniston seems unfazed by the barrage of rumors that have plagued her relationship with Theroux. From reports that she’s pregnant and Theroux’s leaving her one day to stories that the couple quietly eloped just a week later, it’s safe to say the couple has been put through the rumor ringer. When asked about the delay of their nuptials in an interview in Life & Style Magazine, Aniston said, “We just want to do it when it’s perfect, and we’re not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job.” Despite their relationship being painted as tumultuous in the past, Aniston and Theroux seem stronger than ever, a sign that it may finally be the right time for a wedding.
Lauren Conrad and William Tell made it official on Oct. 13, 2013. The former reality-television-star-turned-blogger met musician-turned-law-student Tell when she was set up with him by friends. Soon after their engagement, Conrad announced the happy news on her website with a picture of her newly adorned left hand and the caption “I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend. I am beyond thrilled! Get ready for lots more wedding content here on LaurenConrad.com as we begin the planning process.” If Conrad’s posts about hair, makeup, fashion and DIY home décor projects are any indication, we bet their wedding will be a Pinterest-perfect affair with a classy flair.
With so many celebrity weddings on the horizon, we can’t wait for all the details — venues, dresses, high-profile guests, oh my! — that are sure to be coming our way soon.
