Updated November 09, 20052005 has been a relatively quiet year for celebrity weddings, with none of the outrageous events of 2004. Oh sure, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore tied the not, as did Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, but these were very quiet intimate celebrations with very few details released to tbe public. Finally, it seems like we'll have some celebrity weddings to ooh and ahh at and draw ideas from.
Upcoming Celebrity Weddings:
Christina Aguilera and fiance Jordon Bratman are said to be planning a December wedding, although some sources are now saying it will be Thanksgiving weekend. They've planned a weekend celebration with a Friday night wedding and not one, not two, but three wedding receptions! One of these is said to be a celebration of Japan, with geishas, sushi and dragons, while another will be a big Italian feast. Christian Lacroix, a long time fav of Aguilera's, will design the wedding dress. Christina and Jordon have asked guests to donate to hurricane relief instead of bringing wedding presents.
Meanwhile, the fast-moving romance of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is said to be taking the next step. Since the rumors are flying all over the place, it's hard to know what's true. George Clooney's boat driver has told magazines that Clooney asked him to leave November 20-22 free to ferry guests to Brad and Angelina's wedding at Clooney's Italian estate on Lake Como.
Elton John isn't wasting any time. He'll wed long-time partner David Furnish on December 21, the first day gay marriage becomes legal in the UK. It also happens to be the same night as his big AIDS fundraiser, so who knows if the wedding will be an add-on, or get to take center stage, with all the pomp and circumstance it deserves. If it does, odds are it will be a wonderfully wacky wedding, given the pop star's personality.
And of course, we're anticipating that a Tomkat wedding will happen soon. That's Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, of course. Odds are that the religious couple will want to get married before the baby is born, and before she'll need a maternity dress. Supposedly, Georgio Armani is designing a dress for Katie as a gift, and she has already been to several fittings, which would indicate the wedding is soon. Normally very public, Tom and Katie have been relatively quiet lately. Could it be because they're busy with wedding preparations? Or is it just that Cruise's new publicist is better at reigning him in? We'll just have to wait and see. But I'm betting the wedding details will be very juicy!
