Marissa ‘Viral Proposal’ Fuchs Had Another Wedding

ANTIVIRAL: Marissa “Viral Proposal” Grossman, née Fuchs, is said to have had another wedding ceremony. Double weddings happen, usually when couples have most of their family and friends between disparate locales. In the case of Grossman, her second ceremony seems an attempt to have a wedding that did not include a brand deck and sponsored content to fill hundreds of Instagram stories and scores of posts documenting what seemed to be her every bridal moment. The ceremony is said to have taken place Wednesday night at the Gramercy Park Hotel and the bride wore a white feathered dress. The one rule? No phones allowed. Ironic given that her first wedding and “surprise” proposal at the end of July were crafted to be on Instagram and brands were directly solicited to “align with this momentous occasion” (meaning pay or offer free product for promotion). But it apparently worked — there isn’t a mention of the second ceremony to be found on social media, including Grossman’s own. Grossman moonlights as a budding influencer and has worked since early 2018 as director of brand partnerships for Goop (or maybe it’s the other way around?). But when her proposal went viral and a number of outlets, from

Nicolas Ghesquière Gives First Look at Sophie Turner’s Wedding Dress

While Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are some of the most social-media adept celebrities of 2019, content from the couple’s second wedding in France has been scant on Instagram — until now.
Photos from Turner and Jonas’ rehearsal dinner and other pre-second-wedding events (the couple married in Las Vegas last month in an impromptu wedding ceremony, which was streamed on Instagram by DJ Diplo) made their way to both Instagram and the paparazzi. The most-awaited shot of the wedding, however — Turner in her wedding gown — was just revealed Wednesday night by Louis Vuitton women’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière.
Turner, who came to fame playing the role of Sansa Stark on “Game of Thrones” wore a long-sleeved, full skirted gown with a mid-length lace veil. The gown, which featured a keyhole back, had a retro-meets-futuristic aesthetic. The designer captioned the photo on Instagram “Absolut beauty.” Turner, who most recently starred in “Dark Phoenix,” is a spokesmodel for Louis Vuitton and features in some of the French fashion house’s ads.

Everything You Need to Know About Sophie Turner’s Wedding Dress

HERE COMES THE BRIDE: While seemingly every detail from Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s second wedding in France has leaked out on social media, one key image has been missing: that of the dress worn by the “Game of Thrones” star for the official ceremony.
Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of women’s collections at Louis Vuitton, on Thursday posted an image of the bride, a Louis Vuitton brand ambassador, with the caption: “Absolut beauty @sophiet.” The gown made of flower-embroidered tulle and silk gazar required more than 350 hours to assemble, the house said.

Though not known for his bridal designs, Ghesquière is well versed in red-carpet dressing, with 31 of his outfits for stars including Alicia Vikander, Michelle Williams and Emma Stone currently on display as part of the “Louis Vuitton X” exhibition in Los Angeles.
The luxury brand has a specialized workshop, the Atelier Rare & Exceptionnel, at its flagship on Place Vendôme in Paris where seamstresses create exclusive gowns for celebrities, and fit and customize ready-to-wear pieces for VIP clients.
For Turner’s dress, more than 10 embroiderers worked for a total of 1,050 hours on the 14 meters of tulle, covered with a digitally-designed pattern of more

Royal Duchesses Vie for Spotlight in Photo Ops After Windsor Wedding

ME TOO: It was supposed to be Lady Gabriella Windsor’s day in the Sunday press, the minor royal having married her beau Thomas Kingston at St. George’s Chapel, the same place Harry and Meghan wed a year ago. Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh were in attendance at the Saturday ceremony, as was Prince Harry. Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were among the guests.
Lady Gabriella is 52nd in line to the throne and does not have a big international presence, so this wasn’t world news. However, Windsor is known in Britain as the daughter of Prince Michael of Kent, one of the Queen’s cousins, and her late grandparents were the Duke and Duchess of Kent. Her husband had once dated Pippa Middleton. The bride wore a Luisa Beccaria wedding dress and the reception was held at Frogmore House on the Windsor estate, not far from where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex live with baby Archie.
Usually, that sort of wedding would have been front-page fodder for the Sunday papers, but not with the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex in town.
Kate Middleton’s smiling face graced the cover of The Sunday Times of

The Designers Behind the Chopra-Jonas Wedding, and More

MUMBAI, India — Two high-profile couples, two extravagant Indian weddings, two Instagram-frenzy inducing events — but behind them both, one design duo: Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, who not only created the brides’ opulent wedding outfits, but also the decor of both weddings.

The weddings of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas in Rajasthan and Isha Ambani — the daughter of Mukesh Ambani, one of the world’s richest men and chairman and managing director of the $ 60 billion Reliance Industries — to billionaire Anand Piramal in Mumbai generated a slew of publicity for both couples (so much so that Chopra and Jonas were criticized for the estimated $ 800,000 cost) and attracted social media junkies worldwide who had never followed an Indian wedding before. Part of the fascination was the sheer flamboyance of the events, as well as the celebrity guests and performers — Beyoncé flew in for the Ambani wedding, for example. And Jani and Khosla dressed many of those guests as well, including one in a red tulle mirror sheet dress embellished with tiny mirror pieces and beads and an organza shoulder drape for the sangeet function, and separately a traditional dress in navy blue, with a low-waisted, embroidered multipanel skirt.

Prince George and Savannah Phillips Strike Again! The Royal Cousins Goof Off at Eugenie’s Wedding

Prince George and his cousin Savannah Phillips were up to their playful ways again at Friday’s royal wedding.

The adorable page boys and bridesmaids of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank entered St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle ahead of the stunning bride (a couple bridal party members took a tumble walking up the chapel stairs!), where they waited for Eugenie’s arrival.

George, 5, and Savannah, 7, decided to pass the time doing what they do best together: Having some mischievous fun!

Savannah was spotted making George laugh by imitating the trumpet players providing entrance fanfare for the ceremony. Perhaps the son of Kate Middleton and Prince William realized the cameras on him – he was photographed covering his mouth with his eyes wide as if he’d been caught!

This isn’t the first time the cousins have stolen the show at a major royal event.

When the royal family gathered on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the Trooping the Colour flypast in June, the youngest members couldn’t help but be in awe of the spectacle overhead.

Princess Charlotte, 3, clapped as the planes flew overhead, and while her brother Prince George offered his applause sparingly, his dropped jaw gave a better indication of how he felt about the big event, meant to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday. But Queen Elizabeth‘s great-granddaughter Savannah Phillips wanted her cousin to keep it cool, so she promptly placed her right hand right over the future king’s mouth when he started to giggle.

“Savannah started it by pretending to conduct as the national anthem was played and George joined in the fun. But when Savannah realized it was probably not what they should be doing – maybe William said something to them – she stopped George from saying any more. He was either saying the wrong thing or giggling,” another observer told PEOPLE.

A few weeks later, the cousins cheered on Prince William at his charity polo match in Gloucester, England.

During the playdate, the daughter of William’s cousins Peter and Autumn Phillips playfully pushed George down a hill when he attempted to sit next to her.

Though George wasn’t injured and regained his balance, Savannah wasn’t unscathed as she was scolded by mom Autumn immediately after.

Also during the polo event, Savannah was spotted ruffling George’s hair when he wasn’t looking. While she had some fun teasing the future heir to the throne, she appeared to show more affection to Princess Charlotte.

“ sat with Charlotte in her lap,” an observer told PEOPLE. “She hugged her and balanced her on her knee.”

Maria Menounos Shares Wedding Photo & Honors Her Parents in Emotional Post: ‘I Feel So Blessed’

Maria Menounos is feeling major gratitude toward her parents following her glamorous wedding in Akovos, Greece.

The TV personality, who remarried Keven Undergaro on Saturday after initially saying “I do” in an impromptu New Year’s Eve ceremony last year, paid tribute to her parents Constantine and Litsa on Instagram.

On Tuesday, Menounos, 40, posted a sentimental black-and-white snapshot with her dad at the wedding. In the picture, the father-daughter duo have their arms wrapped around one another as Menounos shows off her billowing Celia Kritharioti gown.

“Love my dad so much,” she captioned the post. “This was a dream for him. He was born and raised in Akovos. Though he’s the proudest American you will find, he is also equally proud of his roots.”

“Growing up we saved all the spare change we found on the nightclub floors we cleaned in Boston to save up and visit Greece,” Menounos continued. “It meant so much to him for us to be connected to our heritage, to know the language and the traditions. Both my parents wanted that. It took years but finally we visited in 1988 when I was 10. I loved it. We spent almost a month in Akovos and it always held a special place in my heart. Returning to get married there was my wildest dream come true. All of our friends and family helped make it truly the most special moment of all our lives.”

Menounos also revealed that her father had health problems right before the wedding: “My poor dad got so sick a week before the wedding and we almost lost him. Luckily my friends and family helped him get better all while keeping me in the dark. This is why I feel so blessed.”

With her wedding hashtag #mariaandkevensbigfatgreekwedding, she concluded, “To have my parents at my wedding I know wasn’t easy between dad’s diabetes and mom’s cancer. I know many who weren’t as lucky and I will never take that for granted.”

Menounos has shared all the details of her gorgeous nuptials on Instagram, which included a multi-layer cake, cheerful lemon centerpieces, yellow plants, yellow-hued drinks and pastries and almost 1,500 decorative lemons.

She also gave her fans peeks at her impressive arrival at the church — she rode in on a carriage surrounded by a swarm of people — and the celebration that followed the vows.

Before the wedding, she took a moment to reflect.

“I’ve been planning this for maybe a month but really been planning this for a long time in my heart because I always wanted to return to Greece and do our wedding here,” she said on Instagram. “Greece means so much to us and our village and our roots and I’m so beyond thankful to all of our friends who put this together.”

Inside Kate Middleton’s Clever Wardrobe Trick to Never Upstage the Bride as a Wedding Guest

All eyes are usually on Kate Middleton — but the royal knows exactly how to let a friend have her time in the spotlight.

On Saturday afternoon, members of the royal family stepped out for the wedding of one of Kate’s closest friends, Sophie Carter, who married Robert Snuggs at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk.

The royal mom of three wore a cornflower blue Catherine Walker & Co coat dress for the special occasion — a recycled outfit! Princess Kate previously wore the piece when she arrived in Berlin with Prince William and their two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, during their July 2017 tour of Poland and Germany.

Just as she perfectly matched her family in blue for their tour, Kate coordinated with her children for the weekend wedding. Charlotte, 3, was one of three bridesmaids, while George, 5, was among the chosen four page boys, and they were outfitted by one of Kate’s favorite childrenswear designers, Amaia. Charlotte wore a linen dress in ivory with royal blue embroidered edging from the upmarket label. Meanwhile, George wore matching cropped blue trousers, with an off-white linen shirt accessorized with a blue cummerbund, also from Amaia.

Kate made her outfit wedding chic by adding a matching floral headpiece by milliner Juliette Botterill, who is becoming a go-to for royal family members like Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall.

At the May wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, she pulled an epic royal rewear with one of her favorite pieces: an off-white bespoke Alexander McQueen coat dress. In July 2015, Kate wore the structured-collared coat dress to Princess Charlotte’s christening. She pulled out the ensemble again at the Queen’s official birthday celebrations, Trooping the Colour, in 2016.

Meghan Markle Reveals the Secret Way Her Wedding Veil Honored Her First Date with Prince Harry

It doesn’t get more romantic than this.

In a sneak peek from the upcoming HBO documentary Queen of the World, Meghan Markle opens up about the secret tribute to her first date with Prince Harry hidden within her spectacular 16-foot wedding veil.

While getting a chance to see her dress for the first time after tying the knot in May, Meghan, 37, reveals the special significance behind a “piece of blue fabric” stitched inside.

“Somewhere in here there’s a piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside — it was my something blue,” Meghan remarks while inspecting the veil in the video above.

Sweetly, she adds, “It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date.”

RELATED: See the Exciting Moment Meghan Markle Lays Eyes on Her Wedding Dress After the Big Day 

Of course, the cathedral-length veil also represented a special connection to the Commonwealth.

The bride’s headpiece, made from silk tulle, featured a trim of hand-embroidered flowers from each of the 53 counties in the Commonwealth, the family of nations linked to the U.K., in threads and organza.

“I’m really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together,” Meghan says in another clip. “And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we’re going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.”

Meghan adds: “It was good news all around, I think, so I hope people like it as much as I liked helping to create it.”

Designer Clare Waight Keller previously told PEOPLE that the idea came to her after several conversations with Meghan about what “story” she wanted to tell with the celebration.

“There was a conversation early on about the story that we were going to tell through this wedding,” she said. “Part of what I wanted to do was talk to her about what type of stories they could be. The fact that her and Prince Harry will be working a lot in the Commonwealth was something that I thought was really intriguing and could be something built on to be part of the day.”

“We had different conversations back and forth and I came up with the idea of maybe representing each of the countries, the 53 countries of the Commonwealth, through their flora and fauna,” she added. “We both loved the story of that. It also meant that single one of those countries also journeyed up the aisle with her. It was a really poetic moment.”

The documentary features members of the royal family speaking about Queen Elizabeth and the Commonwealth — and it will air just before Harry and Meghan head to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga on their first official tour of Commonwealth nations.

A palace source previously told PEOPLE that Meghan takes part in “a conversation, a stand-up chat” for the film. The series will also feature appearances from Harry, Prince Charles and Prince William.

Denise Richards Marries ‘Love of My Life’ Aaron Phypers in Intimate Malibu Wedding

The whirlwind wedding took place Saturday in Malibu, with the bride and groom’s closest family and friends in attendance.

Next season, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will include footage of the wedding, some of which Bravo released Saturday.

Richards beamed as he added, “We’re married. Love you, baby.”

Then the couple leaned in for a kiss in front of a large floral arrangement and the ocean.

“I am so happy to officially be married to the love of my life,” Richards told Bravo’s The Daily Dish of the nuptials. “I can’t wait for everyone to go on this incredible journey with me this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It has been a wild ride so far!”

“Denise and Aaron just want a small group of people to be at the wedding, really just their inner circle,” a source told PEOPLE after the engagement. “They’ve both done this before and this time just want to exchange vows in front of the people who are most important.”

The couple began dating in December 2017. Phypers finalized his divorce from Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan last month — two years after they separated following just six months of marriage.

Richards was married to Charlie Sheen from 2002-06, and they share two daughters: Sam, 14, and Lola, 13. (She is also mom to daughter Eloise, 7.)

In recent weeks, the Wild Things actress has been photographed filming the Bravo reality show, which is expected to premiere before the end of the year.

She’s done it before and knows how to navigate life on and off camera even when the show gets blurred with reality. He seems to care for her in a real way and is up for whatever she throws at him and vice versa. They’re a good team.”

Meghan Markle’s Givenchy Wedding Dress to Be Displayed at Windsor Castle

ROYAL FROCKS: Earlier in May, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made royal and fashion history. The Royal Collection, which houses the largest collection of noble artifacts, will launch a special exhibition titled “A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex” later this year where the couple’s wedding outfits will be on display.
The exhibition will be part of the Windsor Castle tour from Oct. 2018 to Jan. 2019. The outfits will then be displayed at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh from June to Oct. 2019.
The highlight on display will be the Givenchy Haute Couture dress Markle chose for her big day, created by British designer Clare Waight Keller. Cut with a bateau neckline, the minimalist, fuss-free design was made from an exclusive, double-bonded silk cady, developed by Waight Keller, and features a triple silk organza underskirt.
Markle’s silk tulle veil is hand-embroidered with floral embellishments that represent each of the Commonwealth countries — a reference to her and Prince Harry’s dedication to their new roles. The team of embroiderers spent over hundreds of hours crafting the veil, washing their hands every 30 minutes to keep the tulle and silk threads in pristine condition.

Meghan Markle Has Very Special Plans for Her Wedding Dress

Royal wedding fans are in for a treat as plans are being made to put Meghan Markle’s stunning Givenchy gown on display.

Insiders predict that the dress will be displayed at Windsor Castle, the venue for Meghan’s May 19 wedding to Prince Harry. Royal officials are believed to be discussing a suitable time and details around the exhibit.

Designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, the stunning silk gown featured an open bateau neckline and sculpted waist. The train flowed in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza.

The process was “very collaborative,” Waight Keller said in an interview the day after the wedding, adding that Meghan was familiar with her work.

“It was a wonderful way to start the collaboration with her, finding out what she wanted for her day and just to find the absolute perfect style for her,” Waight Keller told reporters. “Part of it was really a conversation in the beginning and then through a series of sketches that I proposed to her. We exchanged conversations about what would be the ultimate lines and proportions and the scale of the dress.”

In the summer after Prince William and Kate Middleton wed in 2011, the palace made Kate’s dress — created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen — a centrepiece of the annual opening of Buckingham Palace. More than 350,000 filed past it in the first six weeks.

An official at the Royal Collection Trust, which would create any display at the castle or Buckingham Palace, didn’t have a comment and wouldn’t be drawn on what discussions might be underway.

Inside RHOP Star Candiace Dillard’s Romantic, ‘Incredible’ D.C. Wedding: ‘It Was Like a Dream’

Candiace Dillard really didn’t want to cry. And then she saw Chris Bassett’s eyes across the room.

The Real Housewives of Potomac star was doing her best to control her emotions on Saturday as she prepared to wed Bassett in front of 260 friends and family at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. But as strong as she was, nothing prepared her for the moment she started walking down the aisle and locked eyes with her soon-to-be husband.

“When they opened the doors, I only saw him,” Dillard tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I was connected to Chris’ eyes. And he was crying, so I was weeping. There’s an ugly cry moment where I had to stop and scrunch up my face. To be walking towards the man who is going to be your husband? That was such a powerful and incredible feeling.”

“That is what I will always remember, looking in his eyes,” she continues. “It felt so comfortable and so right and so ‘This is where I’m supposed to be.’ And I was so overwhelmed by that feeling, and the look of the room, and seeing all the people around us. It was like a dream.”

Dillard and Bassett’s nuptials were a long time coming for the pair, who met while working at a restaurant together in D.C. and dated for nearly two years before he proposed in May 2017.

Their wedding planning was captured for the RHOP cameras, and while some of the tougher moments made for compelling TV, the final affair was smooth sailing.

“Everything was perfect — we were just blown away by it all,” Dillard says of the affair, which was designed by Strawberry Milk Events on her theme of “cosmopolitan sophistication with a touch of southern class.”

For the ceremony, the grand Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium was decked out with a mirrored walkway, boxes of white roses, floating chandeliers and a custom-made gold mirror arbor, flanked with cascading flowers by Edge Floral Event Design.

“They just showed out,” she says. “They got my vision perfectly. As far as the look and the aesthetic of the venue, I wouldn’t have done anything differently.”

Cocktail hour and a reception followed, with a feast of hors d’oeuvres and a seated dinner from Spilled Milk Catering that included lamb chops, a summer watermelon salad, short ribs and a sea bass with dill — an option that referenced their wedding hashtag.

As for the raspberry almond wedding cake? That was from ButterCream Bakeshop.

“The food was friggin’ amazing,” Dillard, a former Miss United States, recalls. “Delicious. The presentation was art deco, a little victorian — it matched all the themes I wanted in the wedding. And the cake was so, so good. We got nothing but great feedback from our guests on the food. So mission accomplished.”

Music from We the Fix and DJ Tryfe kept the guests moving. “We definitely danced the night away,” Dillard says. “I had a good sweat going on so I know I danced. My feet are still in shambles, so my body is telling me I had a good time.”

There were speeches throughout the night too, including ones from her dad and stepdad (who both walked her down the aisle) and one from Dillard’s mom. Bassett’s two best men, his brother his best friend, also gave speeches. “I wish we had maybe an extra hour at the reception, because all the speeches were amazing. I didn’t want them to stop,” Dillard says.

But of course, it was all about Dillard’s dress — or, in this case, dresses. Both were custom designed by New York designer Karen Sabag, who worked closely with Dillard over an eight-month period to craft the perfect look.

For the ceremony and reception, Dillard wore a flowing ballgown, its imprinted pearl cream silk organza draped over a fitted corset and continuing onto a skirt of 70 yards. Soft and dramatic at the same time, the gown was finished with two French bows on the shoulders, beaded (by hand) with 80 yards of Swarovski crystals. A clean, long cathedral vail — pinned into her soft curls — finished the look, with a blusher till the floor.

“That dress was everything I wanted it to be and then some,” Dillard says. “I knew I wanted a ballgown and I tried on several, but they just weren’t doing it. But Karen made it happen. It had the perfect drop-waist bodice, because when you’re a short girl wearing a ballgown, you have to be careful about it cutting you off on the wrong lines. And it was so light. It looked heavy, but I was really able to dance and jump around and move in it. I loved it.”  

A a second dress — a halter with cold shoulder sleeves and a mini poof skirt in a metallic flower sequence fabric — made its debut at the afterparty.

Now that the wedding is behind them, Dillard and Bassett — a restaurateur and father of three — have a honeymoon to plan. They’ve got some time, the two not planning on heading out on the getaway until January, when they can get some good vacation time scheduled.

“We’re thinking either Greece or Dubai, though we’ve also gotten some good suggestions in the Amalfi coast and Thailand,” Dillard explains. “What’s important for us in a honeymoon destination is that we’re able to immerse ourselves in a culture. Not just the food and the libations, but also being around the people and watching how those countries live. So all those places check those boxes.”

And in the meantime, they’ll be reminiscing about their big day for years to come.

“It feels so crazy,” Dillard says. “As soon as Chris and I walked back down the aisle together, the first thing I said to him was, ‘Can we do it again?’ And that’s how I feel about it now. I’ll remember it forever.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Meghan Markle Steps Out with Prince Harry on Her Birthday to Celebrate a Friend’s Wedding

Meghan Markle is surrounded by lots of love on her birthday!

She and Prince Harry found themselves in a familiar place on Saturday — in church — as they celebrated another special wedding. The newlyweds attended the ceremony for one of Harry’s oldest family friends, Charlie van Straubenzee, 30, who married his 27-year-old girlfriend, Daisy Jenks, in Surrey on Saturday afternoon.

And it was a double celebration as Saturday marks Meghan’s 37th birthday — her first as an official royal after her own wedding in May.

Also at the nuptials in the English countryside (about 50 miles south of London) were another couple preparing for the second royal wedding of the year – Princess Eugenie and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank. They are set to walk down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel (Meghan and Harry’s wedding site) at Windsor Castle on October 12.

Contrary to reports, Harry, 33, is not serving as best man at his good friend’s ceremony. But he is involved in the proceedings, including usher duties. He’ll also likely have a hand in some of the fun shenanigans planned for the reception.

Not in attendance were Prince William and wife Kate Middleton, who have been on summer vacation with their children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 3 months, in Mustique.

The wedding comes nearly three months since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s own fabulous day on May 19. A month later, they were at the nuptials of Princess Diana’s niece, Celia McCorquodale.

The friendship of Harry and van Straubenzee goes back to their prep school, Ludgrove. Harry was a classmate of Charlie’s late brother, Henry (who tragically died in a car crash in 2002). William is a close friend of the groom’s brother, Thomas (who is a godfather to Princess Charlotte), and both princes are joint patrons of a memorial fund to help schools in Uganda set up in Henry’s name.

August marks the summer break for the royals – most of whom will visit the Queen at Balmoral, Scotland, for at least part of their vacation. But William will be seen again in public on August 8, when he travels to France to attend a ceremony marking the centenary commemoration of the Battle of Amiens, which played a significant role in the ending of WWI.

Danielle Staub Is ‘Having Some Difficulties’ with Her Marriage 2 Months After Wedding

Danielle Staub is facing marital problems just two months after she tied the knot with husband Marty Caffrey.

Following reports that the pair had split, a rep for the 55-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star tells PEOPLE that while they are “having some difficulties,” Staub is hoping for a happy resolution.

“Danielle is having some difficulties with her marriage right now and is hoping everything will work out,” Staub’s rep says.

Staub and Caffrey said “I do” in May during a sunset bohemian beach ceremony held on the Bahamas’ North Bimini Island at the Luna Beach Club.

The reality star’s RHONJ costars Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs all served as bridesmaids for the event, and a source told PEOPLE at the time that the occasion was filmed for the hit Bravo show’s upcoming ninth season.

Staub and Caffrey began dating in April 2016 and live together in her New Jersey home. He proposed to her on a season 8 episode — news of which PEOPLE first reported in May — surprising Staub on the grounds of a beautiful mansion, where a violinist played Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” and a handful of couples danced around them.

“Baby, when I first met you, I was struck with how beautiful you are. As I got to know you, I fell in love with you,” he told her before popping out a ring (a round cut diamond with four prongs and an eternity band) and proposing. “I’ll do everything I can to love you, to protect you, and to keep you safe.”

“The engagement was simply beautiful,” Staub gushed later. “He is such a gentleman.”

Ahead of the pair’s marriage, Staub — who returned to RJONJ last season in the Friend of the Housewives role after a 6 season hiatus from the show — told PEOPLE, “I’m excited to connect with Marty as husband and wife.”

“There’s nothing more beautiful about that,” she added. “We’re both looking forward to that next chapter.”

This is the third marriage for Staub. She and her last husband, businessman Thomas N. Staub, split after 14 years together before RHONJ began filming. They share daughters Christine, 24, and Jillian, 20. Her first marriage was to former FBI informant Kevin Maher.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 9 is expected to premiere this fall.

Batman’s Wedding Comic Delivers Plenty of Drama

Note: Because it’s difficult to discuss this issue in much depth without addressing the ending, this review will contain spoilers for Batman #50. I’ll add a spoiler warning where necessary.

Batman #50 has quickly become one of the most controversial DC releases of the year, even before its actual release. No doubt many readers are coming into this book ready to hate it, judging from the widespread backlash to the spoilers revealed by The New York Times over the weekend. DC did itself absolutely no favors there. But looking beyond the spoilers and whether or not the outcome of Batman and Catwoman’s wedding actually lives up to the marketing hype, Batman #50 is one of the strongest chapters of King’s run yet. It delivers another emotional, heartfelt look at two lovers and their intertwined lives. It also serves as a fitting climax to this particular phase of King’s run while simultaneously setting the tone for what’s to come in the next 50 issues.

Kaley Cuoco Marries Karl Cook in Romantic Ceremony — See Their Wedding Photos!

Kaley Cuoco is married!

The Big Bang Theory star tied the knot with professional equestrian Karl Cook at an intimate wedding at a horse stable near San Diego, California, attended by close friends and family on Saturday, PEOPLE confirms.

“Legally KCSQUARED 6-30-18 ❤,” Cuoco — who wore a white lace dress with a cape — captioned an Instagram showing her kissing Cook near horse stalls.

“Ok let’s party!!! #kcsquared 💋 💕,” the actress captioned a second snap of the newlyweds gearing up for the reception.

Cuoco, 32, and Cook, 27, delivered their own wedding vows, which had the bride both laughing and wiping tears from her cheeks, as a guest showed in an Instagram video.

One guest shared the moment Cook and Cuoco were married by a friend.

“I love you both so much,” the pal said before joking about how she took an online course to officiate the wedding, making Cuoco kneel over laughing.

Once pronounced husband and wife, the crowd cheered as the couple leaned in for their first kiss as newlyweds.

Another special video features the pair preparing for their first dance at the reception.

Cuoco and Cook got engaged on her birthday in November 2017 after dating for nearly two years.

Just hours before sharing the proposal on social media, Cook teased Cuoco with a fake ring while shopping at Target.

“On my loves birthday I got her everything she has always wanted….now judging by her face maybe not, it’s the thought that counts right,” he shared.

Then, Cook — the son of software billionaire Scott Cook — treated her to a romantic candlelit dinner and popped the question for real for a stunning tear-drop diamond, documenting her tearful reaction on Instagram.

She celebrated her bachelorette party in June.

“He is my perfect match,” Cuoco gushed to PEOPLE in March, adding that she hoped to make their pets part of their wedding. “He lets me wake up in the morning and say, ‘I want to go and rescue rabbits.’ And he’s like, ‘All right, let’s get a coffee and let’s go.’ And that is him. We are the same, our views are the same, our morals are the same, he is my perfect match.”

The duo started dating in spring 2016 and made their first public appearance as a couple in September that same year. (This is the actress’s second marriage; she filed for divorce from former tennis player Ryan Sweeting in September 2015.)

“From the beginning, Kaley was crazy about Karl,” an insider previously told PEOPLE. “They have so much in common and he makes her so happy. She went through such a tough time with her divorce from Ryan, but she never gave up on finding love again. She’s really a romantic!”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Official Wedding Portraits Were Just Released!

Picture perfect!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are celebrating the end of their royal wedding weekend with the release of their official wedding portraits on Monday.

Taken in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after the royal couple’s magical carriage procession, the portraits were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, who took the couple’s dreamy engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first photo is an epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus 4-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace!), the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday. They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the U.K., Commonwealth, and around the world,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson said.

“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted with these official portraits taken by Alexi Lubomirski and are happy to be able to share them today. They would also like to say thank you for all of the generous messages of support they have received.”

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids. Led by the couple’s niece and nephew, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends: Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

The bride and groom themselves posed for a romantic black-and-white photo featuring just the two of them. Taken just moments after they tied the knot, the love and happiness they felt on the day is evident on their smiling faces.

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement. “This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

At the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the official portraits of the couple and the bridal party were taken by Hugo Burnand. Burnand was also on hand to shoot the official pictures for the wedding of Prince Charles to Camilla Parker-Bowles six years earlier.

EXCLUSIVE: Stella McCartney’s Sketch for Meghan Markle’s Wedding Reception

PLAY IT AGAIN, STELLA: The Duchess of Sussex — her family and wedding guests — just couldn’t get enough of Stella McCartney this weekend. Although McCartney wasn’t the official dresser for Saturday’s nuptials, she certainly came close, creating outfits for the day under her Bespoke label.
After changing out of her white Givenchy Haute Couture gown, Meghan Markle moved onto Stella McCartney for the evening reception, by all accounts a lively affair during which the bride broke with tradition and made a speech.

Meghan Markle (in Stella McCartney) 

She wore a sleeveless white silk crepe gown with a high collar, and bare shoulders, pairing the dress with Aquazzura satin shoes that had baby blue soles. The clean lines and silk fabric of McCartney’s dress echoed the minimal, unembellished dress she wore for her walk down the aisle.
“I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design,” said McCartney. “It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career and I am so proud of all the team on this stunning sunny royal day.”

Meghan Markle Picks Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller for Her Wedding Dress

WINDSOR — Duty and discretion.
Meghan Markle, who became Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex earlier this morning, telegraphed some very powerful messages to the British public — and the world — about the sort of royal she wants to be.
Stepping out of a vintage Rolls-Royce in a minimal and unembellished Givenchy Haute Couture dress by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, a diamond tiara on loan from Queen Elizabeth, and a veil bearing symbols of the Commonwealth, this bride was out to prove that she’s all about simplicity, heritage, respecting tradition — and serving her public.

Not for her a glittering gown with a mile-long train and bejewelled veil. In Waight Keller she picked a talented, low-key British designer who is all about femininity, soft edges and beautiful fabrics. It was a fitting choice: After all, Markle may have married a son and brother of future monarchs, but Harry is now sixth in line to the throne – and will likely never get near it.
The couple also married at St. George’s Chapel on the Queen’s Windsor estate — not at Westminster Abbey or St. Paul’s Cathedral in London — and invited more than 2,000 members of

John Cena & Nikki Bella: Inside Their Canceled Nuptials on What Would Have Been Their Wedding Day

May 5 would have been John Cena and Nikki Bella‘s wedding day.

However, Bella, 34, called off the engagement three weeks before the WWE pair would walk down the aisle during their destination ceremony. Sources previously told PEOPLE that her decision to break up was due to their differing stances on marriage and having kids.

The nuptials would’ve occurred over a year after Cena, 40, proposed to Bella on live TV during WrestleMania 33 in April 2017. And there was even a TV special planned about their wedding set to air in July, but the concept was scrapped after they split after six years together.

RELATED: John Cena’s ‘Ups and Downs’ with Ex-Fiancée Nikki Bella — in His Own Words

While Cena and Bella will not be going ahead with their “I dos,” here are all the wedding details they had shared with their fans and viewers of Total Bella and Total Divas.

The Dress

The same month she accepted Cena’s proposal, Bella was already in full wedding mode as she spoke candidly about what she envisioned for her big day.

“I’m kind of happy I’m getting married in my 30s, because in my 20s I would’ve had something obnoxious, princess-like Kate Middleton. I want lace I think. I want something very classy, like classic and sexy. Something classic, form-fitting. I do want a veil,” Bella told PEOPLE in April 2017, jokingly adding, “Who am I without cleavage?”

Also in April 2017, Bella took a trip to New York Bridal Fashion Week to look at wedding dresses from Romona Keveza and Marchesa. In August 2017, Bella revealed hints about her gown, telling PEOPLE Now, “I can say that it’s a Marchesa.”

During an episode of Total Divas that aired in January 2018, Brie Bella surprised her twin sister with a bridal shopping trip, during which Nikki tried on multiple dress options.

Meanwhile, Cena did not opt for a custom look.

“I also have a few decent-looking tuxes in the wardrobe already, so depending on the colors and the schemes of the wedding and the theme, I might already have something,” he told PEOPLE in July 2017. “I have a few tailors that I work with, just because I’m not exactly somebody who can buy a suit off the rack.”

Wedding Planning

Following the engagement, Bella and Cena expressed their excitement for their wedding.

“I think everyone’s going to think I’m a bridezilla. I really do. I think I’m just so happy to be engaged and that John decided he wanted to get married. I just want to take this in and make it fun and happy,” Bella told PEOPLE in April 2017. “The minute it’s not fun, it’s like why are we doing this? This is why he didn’t want to do it, right? So I want to make it easy and romantic and intimate. Make it for us, no one else but us.”

In July 2017, Bella announced that Brie would be matron of honor.

Meanwhile, Cena told PEOPLE he doesn’t need all the pomp and circumstance.

“I’ve stressed to Nicole that I would really like to get it done because I guess it took me so long to ask, now that I’ve made the commitment I really just want to get married,” he said in July 2017.

“I want it yesterday, but we have a date,” Cena said in April, shortly before their breakup. “I’m excited, but I also have great perspective that I want the day to be important for Nicole.”

He added, “All that information rests on her shoulders. I’m involved in every single step of the process, but I am like the last checkpoint. So, let’s say, décor will be chosen. And then I’ll be given three options but be nudged to like number two. I will politely agree to number two, but I am very much actively a part of the process.”

In October 2017, Bella, who was competing on Dancing with the Stars at the time, revealed that the wedding date was pushed back. “We changed the date and location,” she said, adding that the adjustment was spurred by “schedules” as well as their many responsibilities and commitments.

Bachelorette Party — But No Bachelor Party

In March, Nikki celebrated with a nine-day bachelorette party in Paris with Brie and their closest friends.

Meanwhile, Cena said he had no interest in a stag night.

“No, I mean, why? Help me out. What is a bachelor party? I’m gonna skip it,” he told E! News in March.

The Big Day

While John and Nikki will not be tying the knot, Brie recently told PEOPLE that she will be there for her sister on their wedding date.

Brie said that she was considering planning a girls trip for her twin to keep their minds distracted. “I’m throwing some stuff out there to her. We might do something, we are deciding. There’s a part of her that just wants to be home,” she said in late April.

“I just told her, you lead the way and I’ll follow. … If it’s at home and eating pizza and devouring ice cream, I’m down for that or if want to escape to Napa and down a lot of wine, I’m down for that as well,” Brie added.

The mother of one also added that Total Bellas viewers will see everything that led up to the former couple’s separation.

“I have to give a lot of credit to John and Nicole. They really opened up their lives and they really wanted to close the curtain and be like this is it, we’re done,” she said. “My sister is really great with her fans in a way where she lets them connect with her. She lets them like go, ‘My life isn’t perfect and isn’t easy’ and lets them see the playbook of her life.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Are Upholding a ‘Very Important’ Tradition Involving the Wedding Dress!

They may be getting married in front of the entire world, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are just like brides and grooms everywhere when it comes to certain traditions.

The future newlyweds are avoiding the bad luck superstition of the groom seeing the bride in her dress before the ceremony. In a press briefing on Friday, the palace confirmed that the first time Harry will see Meghan in her wedding gown will be when she walks down the aisle.

“That tradition is very important to them,” a palace spokesman said.

Harry and Meghan will also be spending the night before their wedding apart. And they will stay at Windsor Castle on the night of their wedding.


While details of her dress are being kept under wraps, the couple has revealed that Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, will be walking her down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel on May 19.

Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, will travel with her daughter by car to Windsor Castle the morning of the wedding.

“Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion,” the palace announced.

There are several royal family traditions Meghan will also consider for her wedding. Every royal bride since 1858 has carried a sprig of myrtle — the “herb of love” — in her wedding bouquet. The royal family has also been using pure Welsh gold for their wedding rings ever since the Queen Mother’s wedding in 1923.

And while most brides honor the tradition of throwing the bouquet, Meghan’s floral posy (by Phillippa Craddock) will very likely end up in Westminster Abbey, rather than in the hands of one of her bridesmaids.Most royal brides (including Kate Middleton and Princess Diana) have sent their floral bouquets back to the Abbey to rest on the Grave of the Unknown Soldier, a place of remembrance for fallen soldiers since 1920.

Why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Not Inviting Barack and Michelle Obama to Their Wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are keeping politics out of their upcoming royal wedding.

“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders – both U.K. and international – is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding. Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said Tuesday.

Their decision to omit world leaders from their guest list means former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama will not be attending the May 19 ceremony at Windsor Castle, PEOPLE understands.

While Harry and Meghan have become close to the couple (these photos of BFFs Harry and Michelle are proof!), their guest list is being reserved for long-standing friends they have known for years.

Even though Barack and Michelle won’t be at their wedding, Harry and Meghan have plans to visit with the Obamas in the near future.

“Both the couples look forward to seeing each other soon,” adds a royal source.

Harry has become close to Michelle in recent years through their mutual work on behalf of veterans. Barack also supported Harry’s Invictus Games in Toronto last September.

The absence of dignitaries at the wedding also means President Donald Trump and senior British politicians will not be invited.

“Those in attendance will be people who one or both of the couple has a existing direct relationship with,” adds a royal source.

Whereas royal heir Prince William‘s wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011 had world leaders and dignitaries in attendance, a similar list of prominent guests is “not required” for Harry, who is currently fifth-in-line to the throne (and soon to be sixth with the birth of William and Kate’s third child later this month). If there are senior members of other royal families invited to the wedding, it will be because Harry has a close relationship with them.

Insiders also note that William and Kate wed in the grand Westminster Abbey in front of about 1,900 invitees, but Harry and Meghan’s venue at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle is much smaller and will have around 600 guests. “It will still be a royal wedding and an important occasion,” the royal source adds.

The palace also released the names of some of the lucky 1,200 members of the public who have been invited from around the U.K. to the grounds of Windsor Castle for an up-close view of their wedding day. The special guests were chosen from “young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities,” the palace says in a statement.

Another 200 guests will come from charities linked with Meghan and Harry, including WellChild for seriously ill kids and the Invictus Games for sick and injured veterans and serving military members. There will also be 100 children from two local schools – the Royal School, situated in the Great Park of Windsor, and St. George’s School, below the castle.

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady Share Never-Before-Seen Wedding Photos on Their 9th Anniversary

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are celebrating their 9th anniversary with some gorgeous throwback wedding photos from their private family album.

The supermodel, 37, took to Instagram to express her lasting love for her NFL star husband, writing, “What a ride this past 9 years have been. I love learning and growing with you. Happy anniversary love of my lifey! Te amo muito! ❤😘

In the never-before-seen photo, the couple kisses on the altar during a private, top-secret ceremony in Santa Monica. Bündchen wore a strapless lace Dolce & Gabbana gown with a bustier bodice and teamed with a romantic lace-trim veil.

Brady, 40, echoed a similar sentiment in his own photo post.

“Live, Laugh, Love…..and I Love You! Feliz Aniversário! Te Amo muito!!❤💍😍,” he wrote on this feed.

After officially tying the knot in February 2009, the couple hosted a party two months later on the beach in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Bündchen wore a white silk slip dress for the oceanside soirée, while Brady wore a blue linen suit. Last year, the model shared a photo of the couple dancing on the sand in celebration of their eighth anniversary.

Earlier this month, the power couple took a family trip back to Costa Rica with their children one week after Brady’s Super Bowl loss. They both shared sweet photos kissing one another under a white canopy on the beach. And while their bond seems closer than ever, they traveled down to paradise to celebrate Bündchen’s sister Rafaela’s wedding.

On Thanksgiving, Faris hinted her the couple’s wedding and her role in it while sharing an animated video of her officiating the ceremony and Sarna explaining how the two met.

Faris split with Chris Pratt in August, with the Jurassic World star filing for divorce earlier this month.

The actress, who is starring in a remake of Overboard, has been seen with rumored boyfriend Michael Barrett.

The cinematographer is the first man Faris has been publicly seen with since she announced her separation from Pratt after eight years of marriage. Faris and Barrett were seen on several dinner dates in October, stepping out twice in the span of two days at Modo Mio, an upscale Italian restaurant in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Pacific Palisades.

Princess Diana’s Wedding Dress Designer Is Launching a Very ’80s New Label

One of the designers behind Princess Diana’s wedding dress has a lot to be excited about in 2018.

Elizabeth Emanuel, who, with her then-husband David Emanuel, designed Diana’s 1981 gown, is set to launch a new fashion label. And she tells PEOPLE that the upcoming line, Emanuel Mayfair, will capture the energy of the 1980s and offer a dynamic twist on current trends.

Emanuel Mayfair is set to kick off in February after Emanuel received a new round of financial backing. She’s going to move into new, larger studios and is currently hiring a young and creative team, and recently appointed a CEO.

Elizabeth, whose most recent fashion label was been called Art of Being, says the new line will have the same “spirit” as her previous collections, but with a modern touch.

“It will have the spirit of Emanuel from the days when we made dresses some of the most of the most iconic women of the time like Elizabeth Taylor, Carolina Herrera and Joan Collins, but is taking it into the present,” she tells PEOPLE. “That whole period of time was wonderful but this will capture that but will also look contemporary and edgy. I’m bringing back the spirit in a new form after all these years. We will concentrate on bridal wear and evening wear – things to get dressed up in, pieces that are handcrafted and made to order.”

Emanuel, who spoke about her unique part in the life of the princess for PEOPLE’s The Story of Diana adds: “Our new studio is beautiful and is being renovated now for us to be ready in about a month.”

‘This is exciting. It shows that you if you never give up, good things happen. It is going to be a positive year.”

She hopes the first collection will emerge in July or September.
