• Stronger Than Fiction: What a Real Life Marriage Proposal Looks LikeStronger Than Fiction: What a Real Life Marriage Proposal Looks LikeI've watched hundreds of bogus, unreal, crazily old-fashioned "will you marry me's" on TV, and I have rolled my eyes quietly to myself through each and every one. What is this sham that we're continuing to perpetuate? Is this truly anyone's reality when popping the big question?

    Maybe there was a time when couples really didn't talk about their future and really didn't know if his or her significant other wanted to get married. Heck, maybe those couples still do exist, and I've been living in a sheltered world over the past 20 years of my life - and that should surprise no one. Regardless, pretty much every married couple I've ever talked to about how the couple got engaged went pretty similar to how I ended up being engaged to Casey.

    Casey and I didn't know each other for very long before we began having the serious talks about our futures. It was about two weeks into our relationship when Casey asked me if I wanted to drive to Las Vegas to get married over the weekend. She

    The stylish couple have been dating since early 2013, but, like their rumored engagement, have kept their relationship relatively under wraps. While sources tell Page Six that the former Victoria's Secret Angel happily accepted her man's proposal, the high-profile couple has neither confirmed nor denied the news of their betrothal.

  • Facebook/Lou BillittierAlmost as awkward as a broken engagement is deciding what to do with the ring. For one jilted fiancée, the decision to keep her $53,000 white-gold, 2.97-carat ring was made in court. Late last week, New York State Supreme Court Justice Russell P. Buscaglia ruled that Christa M. Clark, 38, could keep her ring, in a lawsuit filed by her ex-fiancé Louis J. Billittier Jr., 55, to reclaim it.

    On July 1, 2012, only three months before their wedding, Clark, a nail technician from upstate New York, received a shocking text message from Billittier, co-owner of Chef’s Restaurant and her fiancé of three years, according to a story published by the Buffalo News. He informed her that their relationship was over. “You’re doing this through a text message????” she replied. Billittier promised to reimburse Clark for money she had spent on wedding preparations. He then added, “Plus you get a $50,000 parting ring. Enough for a down payment on a house.”

And . . . we imagine if you showed this cover to 100 Americans, 99 would notice Jennifer Lawrence before looking at the bride. As if she wasn't pulling enough focus just by being her, Lawrence is also the only bridesmaid who isn't leaning down, almost as if she's owning the upstaging ("I know you're looking at me, anyway . . .").

  • The 5 Strangest Wedding Trends of 2014The 5 Strangest Wedding Trends of 2014It's been a long time since I got married; this summer will mark our 10-year anniversary.
