Every bride and groom wants to have a wedding day that is special and unique. For some, it means listening to their inner child, and while the ladies may dream of being a princess for a day, but it would only makes sense that the groom would want to indulge in his childhood fantasies as well. He probably didn’t stay up, late at night, dreaming of being your Prince Charming, but rather a fearless and adventurous superhero!
If this sounds like your soon-to-be betrothed, if “geek-chic” perfectly describes your quirky tendencies, then taking inspiration from favorite comic books is the way to go! From superhero-inspired wedding invitations to wedding gowns with capes, these fun details will absolutely guarantee your wedding a spot in the “league of extraordinary weddings!” (I had to, I couldn’t help myself)
They can keep their secret identities safe from your guests…
They can accentuate their wedding day ensembles with the subtle pops of inspiration…
Funky socks or comic book kicks may be the perfect fit…
What about boutineers? I love the picture of the guy that chose Jesus as his superhero…awesome!
Oh, and don’t think this is just for the guys! You girls out there, don’t be afraid to let your wonder woman out to play…
With great power comes great responsibility, so use your power for good, plan the wedding of your dreams, and most importantly, have fun!
In my house, we celebrate both Christmas and Chanukah every year, and usually the holidays intersect during the month of December. But this year, the first day of Chanukah falls on Thanksgiving, so you know what that means…it’s time to crown a new holiday hybrid! Say it with me…Thanksgivukkah!
Just imagine all of the dinner possibilities: Manischewitz-brined turkey
Challah apple stuffing
Sweet potato latkes with cranberry sauce
Horseradish mashed potatoes
And for dessert…pecan pie rugelach
Star of David rhubarb pie
Chocolate gelt pecan pie (via Melinda Strauss from Kitchen-Tested)
all which will be lit by the flickering of a turkey-shaped menorah.
So, grab your yamaka
and get your hashtag ready (I suggest #GobbleTov) because this year…it is on!

Talk about commitment! Here’s a bride who decided if she was going to have a Disney wedding, she was going to go all the way. From the fire-red hair, to the Disney princess bridesmaids to having king Triton walk her down the aisle, this was one bride who knew having a Little Mermaid-themed ceremony was exactly what she wanted, fork-comb and all…
Let’s not forget her uber cool husband who let her have the Disney fantasy wedding she’s clearly been dreaming of since age 5. Check out the photos!
Maybe I’m old school, but where I come from (Minnesota, since you were wondering) engagement photos are supposed to be fun or sweet, romantic moments captured for all to gaze upon, imagining the perfect life you and yours are about to embark upon. Sure, it’s probably absolute bs, but lie to me. I need this. But these couples have taken the Halloween theme a little too far in their shoots to celebrate their upcoming nuptials, and ended up with engagement photos that are the strangest pics I’ve ever seen in my life! From cuddling in a coffin and reenacting terrifying scenes from thrillers like Friday the 13th, these shots are sooo weird!
FRIDAY THE 13TH
FRANKENSTEIN & HIS BRIDE
So creepy. But I suppose pledging to love some come rain or shine, or zombie apocalypse is romantic all on its own, right?
Looks like ELLE MAGAZINE has decided to step out of the shadows of the long-standing rule of not putting plus-sized stars on its cover, and picked the hilarious Melissa McCarthy as one of the featured actresses for their special “WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD” issue set for November. And listen, I love that they photographed Melissa looking all vampy and mysterious. BUT, and there’s always a but, they buried her in a gi-normous coat, only exposing a glimpse of flesh from her neck and calves, unlike the other leading ladies who also have a cover for next month’s issue. Let us look at the evidence…
For Reese Witherspoon, we’re getting a little “kitten with a whip”…and we like it! After all the trouble with the police stop and the DUI and the weeks of her looking very ladylike while going to the supermarket, this is a wonderful departure. BUT, at least you get to see her dress…which is kick ass, I might add.
What I love most about this shot of Penelope Cruz are the freckles! Who doesn’t love a good freckle? I know I do, BUT at least we get to see her face and it’s not hidden behind a cascading waterfall of hair. Where’s the waterfall ELLE?
This is a great shot of Marion Cotillard looks fantastic, if you are going for that “just got out of spin cycle and boy do I need to shower” look. Not my cup of tea, BUT at least you see her entire body, even if it’s clothed in a sports bra and bikers shorts…for the cover of ELLE.
Shailene Woodley. Enough said.
For just $39.99, you too can go spend Halloween dressed as Miley Cyrus’ and Robin Thicke’s infamous train wreck of a MTV performance this year! Yep, this is happening folks. But you have to hurry, because they’re accepting pre-orders now and may sell out bef…sigh…I can’t do it folks. Can’t do it.
Congratulations America. This is what happens when anything scandelous occurs on these great shores. Someone will figure out how to make a quick buck out of it. So get ready to see trillions of pics of this particular coupling pop up all over your instagram and facebook feed November 1st.
