OMG What Were They Thinking? Celebrity Weddings Horror!


lizaminellidavidguest.jpg

Everyone loves a wedding and when celebrities tie the knot, the majority of the world watches closely. Bridal gown designers take notes to start working with Brides who want a similar dress, wedding planners take in their stock and contacts to make sure that they can give their engaged couple a wedding to rival the celebrity that has inspired it. There is this incredible pressure then on celebrities to make it extravagant, opulent and all things glamour. Sometimes they get it spot on. Sometimes they sneak off and buck the trend. Sometimes they miss the mark and it is these weddings that really grab my attention. I can’t help wonder if they planned their wedding themselves or if they had a planner to take care of it and if so, how much did they pay them!

Now first thought of OMG wedding is of course the train wreck that has been Kim Kardashians wedding. I feel slightly jaded after writing about their special day only to have my predictions come true and they are now working with their divorce lawyers. Instead, the two weddings I am going to write about here are the nuptials of Celine Dion to Rene Angelil and Liza Minelli’s nuptials to David Guest. First off I have nothing against either celeb. Celine’s husband is a cancer survivor and they have three beautiful children and, well, after seeing Liza perform Single Ladies in the second Sex and the City movie, I have to say I have become a fan of her.

Celine and Rene tied the knot in December 1994 in Montreal Quebec. It was an extravagant affair at Bascilia Notre Dame. With a string orchestra and a lavish reception, no expense was spared. The OMG moment was her dress – a great big white ruffle of fabric and lace with that headpiece. A jewel encrusted monstrosity that I can only imagine weighed a tonne (7lbs of Austrian crystals to be precise!) Fast forward to 2000 where they renewed their vows in front of family and friends with an Arabian themed ceremony and reception, they wed in an Arabian mosque in Las Vegas. Another OMG moment where the bride wore a gold Givenchy gown and was way out there in the fashion stakes – then again this is the woman who wore a suit jacket back to front on the red carpet! Her hubby donned a great big turban and wore black eye make-up too. But after cancer, fertility treatments and concerts the pair have remained happily married which is more than I can say for other celebrities out there.

Liza Minelli is the famed daughter of talented and tragic starlet Judy Garland. She carved out a successful career on Broadway and film, with a voice that has set her apart. She has become iconic like her mum and in April 2002 she wed David Guest and events producer, I just could not get past his eyebrows. It is not so much about what she wore, but the wedding itself was way out there. With a bridal party consisting of 36 people, she had Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Dianna Ross and Donald Trump just to name a few. A lavish production for over 800 guests, it was the first marriage for Guest and third for Liza. Elizabeth Taylor forgot her shoes and Michael Jackson was the nervous ring bearer for the couple and Guest gave a whole new meaning to the term “suck face” when he went in to pash his blushing bride, leaving many guests feeling slightly uncomfortable. Unfortunately theirs was not to last and the marriage dissolved into a messy divorce or he said, she said. Claims of drug abuse, violence bounced about and Liza was back on the market.

Sometimes I think if I were a celeb I probably would go all crazy on my wedding too, after all isn’t the motto of show “Any publicity is good publicity”? I think I would have some pretty hard competition though as I would be up against the likes of Jordan (aka Katie Price) and Kim Kardashian (Kim, my little brother is still waiting for you to call him. He has all his own teeth and hair, and is also studying psychology at uni so could really help you deal with Kris Jenner, I mean your commitment issues).
