Cancel that shipment of monogrammed “Harry & Meghan” towels from the White House.
Former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle won’t be there either, despite having a close and apparently fun-loving relationship with groom-to-be Prince Harry in particular. Though it’s not clear if the Obamas were invited and just have something else to do that day (though seriously, what could be more important than watching the current fifth-in-line to the throne say “I do” to former “Suits” actress and American Meghan Markle)?
Apparently, the lack of invite is nothing personal where the current president and first lady Melania Trump are concerned. A White House official told CNN that no elected U.S. officials were invited to the nuptials at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
In fact, a spokesman for Kensington Palace (where Harry and Meghan live, along with their neighbors, Prince William and Kate and their kids) told CNN that “world leaders and political figures would not be invited in their official capacities."
“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both UK and international — is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding,” the palace told CNN.
Hmm … Technically, the Obamas no longer have “official capacities” as political figures, so maybe they did make the cut?
“The royal source would not say whether they had been invited,” CNN said.
Former teammate Ricardo Lockette shared a video of the couple dancing at their wedding celebration, writing, “Congratulations To the Sherman’s!!!! [sic] #familia”
There’s good news for the pair of New Jersey newlyweds whose dream wedding ended in tears after the bride had an allergic reaction to the wedding cake, leaving her temporarily hospitalized -- they’re about to get a free do-over.
Bride Victoria Tumolo was dancing the night away at her reception back in September when she she noticed a change in her breathing patterns. Luckily, Tumolo’s career as a nurse meant that she was prepared for such a situation, and she quickly realized what was happening.
“You need to get my parents,” she told the guests. “I think I have to go to the hospital.”
The next thing she knew, her father was administering an EpiPen through her wedding dress, according to the Courier-Post.
“I had to take my dress off outside so they wouldn’t cut it off me when we got to the hospital,” Victoria Tumolo said, adding that her new husband, Dominic Tumolo, and her mother removed her dress together.
“I didn’t really panic,” groom Dominic told WTXF. “I just wanted to make sure the ambulance got there and got everyone settled and then go to the hospital.”
“I wanted everyone to stay and have a good time,” Victoria said. “There was a lot of confusion, and some people knew what was going on.”
Victoria later discovered that she was allergic to milk and almonds, but the symptoms of her allergy only appear after strenuous physical activity -- like dancing.
Luckily, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the not-so-happy couple. Their caterer, Jim Auletto, teamed up with the owner of the company that provided the entertainment for the reception to offer them a complimentary do-over -- a free second reception.
“This is driving me crazy; she didn’t get to cut her cake” Auletto told WTXF. “It never happened before, so we have to do something.”
So Auletto emailed the couple and asked them if they’d be interested in a second reception, at no charge.
“(Victoria) just started crying because she was so happy,” Dominic said. “We called her parents to let them know the good news.”
Hair and make-up professionals have also volunteered to help the bride out at no cost, and the wedding photographer has also offered their services free of charge.
The couple is excited to finally cut their wedding cake together, but Dominic admitted that, at this point, they have a few unorthodox ideas regarding the tradition.
“I’m thinking of cutting that cake and smashing it in her face,” he joked. “We’ve been trash talking like that for a while.”
Model Kate Upton is officially off the market.
The bride wore a long-sleeved lace gown while her groom donned a classic black tux. E! News reports that the nuptials took place at the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort, and the ceremony was in a medieval church on top of a hill overlooking the Montalcino Valley and vineyards.
Following the 30-minute ceremony, the couple and their guests retreated to the restaurant on the property for dinner and dancing.
The couple began dating in 2014 and were engaged two years later. They kept their engagement private for a few weeks before going public at last year’s Met Gala.
“I’m really excited. He asked me right before season started so we’ve been keeping it on the down low for quite a while,” she told E! at the time. “So, I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
Upton has always been supportive of her baseball beau and took to Instagram on Saturday to celebrate his World Series win with the Houston Astros.
Ahead of the wedding, Upton celebrated with a few gal pals at a lavish bachelorette party at The Plaza Hotel in New York City.
At the end of 2016, Upton and Verlander reportedly purchased a Beverly Hills home for $5.25 million. The home is complete with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a tennis court and a pool.
The Houston Astros' World Series win proved to be more than just exciting on a sports level.
The team’s star shortstop, Carlos Correa, took the exciting moment to propose to his girlfriend.
The moment was filled with tears and a hug, and his girlfriend, former Miss Texas Daniella Rodriguez, said yes.
“It’s one of the biggest accomplishments in my life,” Correa said of the World Series win. “And right now I’m about to take another big step in my life. Daniella Rodriguez, you make me the happiest man in the world. Will you marry me?"
The proposal was followed by screams of happiness and a kiss.
This one is a keeper.
Earlier this year, Will Seaton showed there are still many good guys out there. When Seaton decided it was finally time to pop the question to Ashley Schaus, there was one person he had to ask a very important question. No, not her father, but rather her sister Hannah.
Seaton asked Hanna to be his “best friend forever.”
Hanna has Down’s syndrome and diabetes, and when Seaton and Schaus started dating, Hanna was part of the deal, the couple told ABC News in June.
The couple got married on Oct. 7 and Hanna was there in a special role.
Wearing a white dress of her own, Hanna was a bridesmaid, but she was also dubbed the “Best Sister.”
Hanna also exchanged “best friend vows” with Will, WXIN reported.
“I promise to tell funny jokes. I promise to care for you. Thank you for being in my life,” Hanna told Will.
They also had a first dance together, to the Michael Bublè version of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” WXIN reported.
A traffic stop had a life-changing ending.
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy came up with a major prank just to get the chance to ask his girlfriend to marry him, The Mercury News reported.
Kevin Bowes, a deputy at the Palmdale station, and his coworkers pulled his girlfriend over, saying that they were doing the traffic stop for a driving under the influence test. As she followed their field sobriety test instructions, Bowes got into position. The final instruction was to have her turn around. When she did, she discovered the deputy on one knee holding a ring box.
The video was posted on the department’s Facebook page, where it has had more than 238,000 views in two days.
Before eventually saying yes, she asked Bowes if he was serious. She then ran over to him crying, hugged him then collapsed in his arms, kissing him.
A Jacksonville couple took some unforgettable wedding photos Friday -- at a local Taco Bell.
Nikki Baerman tells Action News Jax that she photographed Skylain and Jeffery Clarke's wedding on Sept. 29.
They are high school sweethearts who got married on their 6-year dating anniversary.
Baerman said in a Facebook post that Taco Bell was the couple's go-to spot after class in high school.
Skylain told Baerman that they would always scrape together all the quarters Jeffrey had in his car to go eat together after class at Westside High School.
"So what better place to end their wedding day than Taco Bell?" Baerman said on Facebook. "When they told me they were doing this, I immediately invited myself along for the adventure."
Baerman took several photos of the couple inside the Taco Bell near The Avenues, including one with a Hot sauce packet that says "I do."
"They are such a sweet, fun-loving couple and this was the icing on the cake that day," Baerman said.
A woman gave herself the wedding of her dreams with a big white gown, flowers and a three-layer cake. All that was missing was one traditional aspect: a partner.
Laura Mesi, a 40-year-old fitness trainer from Italy, married herself and became the first woman in Italy to do so, according to the BBC.
“I firmly believe that each of us must first of all love ourselves,” Mesi, who spent her honeymoon in Egypt, told The Telegraph. “You can have a fairytale even without the prince.”
While the ceremony has no legal weight, it carries a lot of significance to those who have a self-marriage, which is also known as “sologamy.” Sologamists are fighting the stigma that one needs to be married in order to live a complete and happy life, according to Cosmopolitan.
“We’re set up as a culture to treat marriage as the most exciting thing you’ll ever do in your life,” Rebecca Traister, author of “All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation,” told Cosmopolitan. “But if you marry yourself, you can say, ‘My life is just as meaningful as the life of the person who happens to be getting married.’”
Mesi might agree.
“Everyone celebrates getting together with someone and becoming married, but there’s no milestone in society that celebrates escaping something awful or returning to your own happiness and contentment,” she told the Telegraph.
