Avril Lavigne goes vegan to shed weight before her wedding

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 14th, 2012

Now I’m not sure how much weight Avril Lavigne think she needs to lose, looks quite petite already, but according to reports the bride-to-be is following a strict diet to fit into her ‘badass wedding dress’ – which she plans to design herself.

The pop star has said she’s following a 90% vegan diet that includes macrobiotic meals to help her shed any unwanted pounds and look her best on her wedding day.

Like other celebrity brides-to-be Jessica Aniston and Miley Cyrus, Avril has banished sugar, carbs and junk food from her diet.

Avril, instead of worrying about your already tiny frame perhaps you should be focusing more on your hair and make-up because in this photo you look like death…

Are you following a specific diet ahead of your wedding?

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tie the knot!

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 11th, 2012

I go away for one weekend and what happens? Another celebrity couple gets married!

According to PEOPLE magazine , Gossip Girl star Blake Lively married her boyfriend and fellow actor Ryan Reynolds on Sunday night at a ceremony in South Carolina. The couple wed in a white tent at a plantation in Mt. Pleasant, just outside of Charleston and the bride is said to have been wearing Marchesa and Christian Louboutins (the same as her bridesmaids) while the groom and groomsmen donned Burberry suits with custom leather suspenders designed by Ryan’s friend Christopher Bailey. Isn’t it nice to have friends…

Speaking of friends, Blake’s gal-pal Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) – who I saw only Friday live at Bestival – performed three songs for the couple and stayed to dj at the reception.

This is Blake’s first marriage, and the second for Ryan who was previously married to Scarlett Johansson.

Aww we love you guys! XOXO

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 5th, 2012

Keira Knightley gave the world a glimpse of what she’ll look like as a bride as she dazzled in a white couture Chanel gown at the Anna Karenina premiere last night.

Gracing the red carpet, the actress also lifted the lid on her upcoming wedding to Klaxon star James Righton.

Speaking to Vogue, Keira welcomed the idea of Chanel designer/genius Karl Lagerfeld designing her wedding dress: “Well, that would be pretty generous of him, he is an incredible designer.”

The British beauty also admitted that, due to a hectic work schedule, the wedding planning has been put on the back burner.

“[…] I’m working on another film straight after Anna Karenina, which finishes after Christmas. Then, maybe I’ll start thinking about the dress and the guests and the venue. […] I haven’t decided on anything yet.”

What do you think about Keira’s red carpet look?

Brian McFadden ties the knot to Vogue Williams in Florence – and tweets his excitement

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 3rd, 2012

Brian McFadden has been seeing Irish DJ Vogue Williams for just over a year (ok a year and half.. ish), and the two are now reported to have tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in beautiful Florence, Italy.

The 32-year-old singer tweeted on Sunday: “I’m getting married today. #justsaying” – can’t get any more proof than that!

On April 1 this year, Brian tweeted this picture of his now wife and himself sharing a moment, with the message: “I wish I could live this moment forever x @VogueWilliams” Awh!

It is thought that his daughters from his marriage to Kerry Katona, Molly and Lilly-Sue were present and acted as flower girls. According to The Irish Sun, the ceremony is said to have taken place at the picturesque medieval castle Castello Di Vincigliata. But no photos have been released yet, due to a glossy magazine deal. We’re happy for Brian and Vogue, but why be sell outs. Why?!!

What do you think about celebrities selling the rights to their wedding photos?

Avril Lavigne engaged to Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on August 22nd, 2012

I blame it on my recent holiday to the northern parts of Europe where mountains are plentiful and internet access scarce (not really), but the fact that Avril Lavigne was going out with, let alone very serious with Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger had completely passed me by. Then again, as it was established this morning when we were discussing the new engagement at Bridalwave HQ, I mix Avril with the younger Simpson sister… What’s her name again?? The one who was married to that guy from that band..

According to People.com, Avril and Chad have kept so quiet about their relationship that ‘few even knew they were dating;. That makes me feel much better! The Canadian rockers first got together in February this year to co-write a song for Lavigne’s upcoming album and since love has blossomed.

“A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together,” a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE.

Kroeger is said to have popped the question with a 14-carat diamond ring. This will be Lavigne’s second marriage, and Kroeger’s first.

( Oh yeah Ashlee Simpson. And that guy was Pete Wentz. And the band was Fall Out Boy.)

Married or not here are five reasons we love Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake as a couple

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on August 21st, 2012

Yesterday reports from the US claimed that one of the most talked about celebrity couples, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, had got married in a top secret ceremony in Wyoming on Saturday. Today however, it appears to be full confusion about whether the cute couple have tied the knot or not. A little part of us want it to be true as we can’t wait to see photos of Jessica in her wedding dress, but we also want to keep the excitement – and speculation – about what their nuptials will be like for a while longer…

While we try to establish if the rumours are true or not, we thought we’d share our top five reasons why we’ve fallen in love with the two.

Reason 1: Jessica Biel will be a stunning bride.
Looks isn’t everything in this world,  but natural beauty Jessica will certainly be a vision in white – as the below photo photo from the UK premiere of Total Recall in London shows. We hope Jessica’s dress is of a classic design,  perhaps Art Deco style, with lots of lace!

Reason 2: They have showed us that love can prevail.
After five years of dating, and a brief split, Jessica and Justin got back together and look more in love than ever. And unlike many other famous couples (we won’t mention any names) they have remained rather tight-lipped about their relationship from day one. The couple took a break back in March last year, because they needed some time apart before deciding to spend the rest of their lives together. Opening up about her split from Justin, Jessica recently told Hello! magazine: “I needed to be alone for a while. I think that when you take the time to stand by yourself as an independent person, and you find out that you actually are capable of moving forward alone and being fine on your own, then it is a very empowering feeling to have. It gives you a lot of strength, a lot of  confidence too, because it means you know that… any decision you make is an educated one, not just an emotional one. So you make your own choice about whether to step back into a relationship or whether to go in a different direction.

Reason 3: No bridezilla in sight! Jessica let Justin take control of the wedding planning.
While most weddings are still planned by the bride-to-be, Jessica has on several occasions said she’s taken a somewhat relaxed approach when it comes to planning their wedding. Clearly not the bridezilla type, Jessica has admitted to This Morning that Justin could end up planning their wedding, as he “[has] incredible taste”. Well if the engagement ring is anything to go by, it will be a beautiful wedding

Reason 4: Justin picked the engagement ring all by himself.
When it came to picking out the engagement ring for his fiancée, the 31-year-old singer/actor/designer made all the decisions himself. Jessica has said she was completely surprised by the vintage-style, square-cut diamond engagement ring Justin presented her with. The $130,000 diamond ring is stunning and a perfect fit for the Hollywood beauty. To us it looks like perfection!

Reason 5: They seem like the perfect couple.
OK, there might not be a thing like ‘the perfect couple’ but we think Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake come darn close to it. With a relationship clearly based on good values, love and trust, the couple make time for each other despite hectic schedules yet also seem to have kept their individuality.

Now bring on the wedding – and photos!

Michelle Williams and Jason Segel engaged?

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on July 31st, 2012

Could Michelle Williams be set to walk down the aisle with How I Met Your Mother actor Jason Segel? Not just yet, after a source close to the Oscar nominated actress has denied it to E! News after an Australian tabloid was reporting they were set to tie the knot.

Michelle, who has six-year-old daughter Matilda with the late Heath Ledger, and Jason first went public with their relationship in April this year, and have since been spotted regularly out and about.

This is a rumour we’re hoping will turn into reality very soon.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson buys Kristen Stewart engagement ring!

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on June 25th, 2012

Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and his on-and-off screen love Kristen Stewart are reportedly set to marry in real life after the British actor bought an engagement ring for his American sweetheart.

According to OK! America, Robert invested in a ‘beautiful emerald ring’ for Kristen. An insider said: “He’s a real romantic and loves to take an opportunity to remind her that she’s the one. He gave her a ring because he adores her and wants to marry her.”

“It’s important for him that music be a big part of the wedding. He’s writing a song for her and plans to perform it on the vintage Fender guitar she bought him for Christmas last year.”

The couple, who have already said their I do’s in their fairy-tale-like wedding for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part One, have yet to confirm on the engagement rumours – but it doesn’t seem like they’re in a rush to tie the knot. And when they do it is likely to be an intimate wedding, as the couple is known for keeping their relationship out of the spotlight as much as they can.

When do you think the loved-up couple will announce their engagement?
