Cynthia Bailey Teases Wedding Plans Amid Pandemic

It was a decade ago that Cynthia Bailey walked down the aisle in her first wedding and said “I do” to Peter Thomas (the wedding was, of course, featured on RHOA; they divorced in 2017). And with her wedding to Mike Hill just days away (October 10, to be exact), The Real Housewives of Atlanta bride-to-be revealed how she feels going into marriage No. 2.

“I feel just as excited and optimistic as I did leading up to my first marriage. What’s different is that I’m different. I’m older, I’m 53 years old. I’m wiser. The only way to learn how to be a wife is to be one, and that was my first experience. I now know what I want and what I don’t want in a relationship, in a marriage,” she told Page Six in a recent interview. “For years, I said very publicly that I’d never

Prince Harry Furious When Royal Family Tried To Intervene In Meghan Markle Wedding Plans, Book Says

KEY POINTS

  • Prince William infuriated Prince Harry when he asked their uncle Charles Spencer to intervene in his plans to marry Meghan Markle
  • Prince Harry “went mental” when Prince William told him to slow things down with Markle
  • Prince Harry and Markle are planning to spend Christmas with the royal family

Prince Harry allegedly got furious when his older brother Prince William meddled with his plans to marry Meghan Markle less than two years after they met.

Royal biographer Robert Lacey released a new book entitled “Battle of the Brothers: William and Harry – The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult.” In it, the author detailed the falling-out between Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s two sons, who were very close growing up.

Matty J dishes all on his upcoming wedding to Laura Byrne who he fell for on The Bachelor Australia, from budgets to destinations to date and daughter Marlie-Mae’s role on the day.

Ever since Bachelor Matty J popped the question to the girl who stole his heart on the show, Laura Byrne, while on their babymoon in Fiji, fans have eagerly been awaiting their big day.

And, waiting some more.

Now, with the coronavirus wreaking havoc on all things weddings, it seems almost unimaginable we’d see the couple tie the knot anytime soon.

Chatting to The Wedding Digest podcast, Matty J admits his nuptials may still be a while off, but it wasn’t COVID that forced the delay.

“We originally thought we were going to get married this year,” Matty explained.

“I’m going to say it’s down to the fact that I’m very

The Pandemic Messed Up Jon Pardi’s Wedding Plans

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has wreaked havoc on everybody’s plans for 2020, and Jon Pardi is no exception: The “Heartache Medication” singer says that he and his fiancee, Summer Duncan, have had to postpone their planned May wedding more than once.

“Just a couple [times],” the singer admits to Taste of Country Nights, revealing that the pandemic has also impacted the kind of wedding the couple are planning. “The big wedding we wanted to have is not going to happen, so it’s just been heartbreaking telling people, ‘Hey, we can’t [move forward with the wedding as scheduled], because we just can’t have this many people.”

Pardi and Duncan were initially planning a destination wedding, with pizza instead of a traditional cake. Those plans — at least in part — have fallen by the wayside.

“There will be pizza,” Pardi shares. “But we moved it to Nashville, to Tennessee. Just

What do Pacific Northwesterners do when COVID nixes wedding plans? Elope, outdoor adventure-style

When Katelin Kennedy had her final wedding dress fitting in early August, she sheepishly revealed that hiking boots would complement her gown. Without skipping a beat, the seamstress quipped, “Oh, honey, you are not even the first bride today to tell me that.” 

Such is a sign of the times — and the place — here in the Pacific Northwest. With COVID-19 derailing so many life events, meticulously planned weddings have fallen among the wreckage, too. Yet innovative, resilient couples have transitioned to safer alternatives, and with such a large outdoors community in the Greater Seattle area, it’s no surprise that many have found unexpected silver linings among the region’s peaks and pines.

Lindsey Ganahl, an Issaquah-based photographer who specializes in adventure elopements, saw inquiries surge by as much as 75% this summer. 

“Couples booking elopements related to COVID fall into two categories,” Ganahl said. “One where eloping is a

Covid-19: Our wedding plans have been thwarted by Melbourne’s extended lockdown

Tamara and Justin (Strang) in Seattle in March just before the lockdown.

OPINION: I moved to Wellington from Melbourne in 2008 with my two daughters to open a new business. I owned Tempt cupcakes in the Old Bank Arcade for eight years, and New Zealand was such a wonderful place to start a business.

The thought of moving away from Melbourne was made easier by the knowledge that I was always able to ‘pop back home’ frequently or my family would come over to visit. My girls were confident and comfortable travellers from an early age, and I recognise that I have been in such a fortunate position for this to happen.

I have always worked in the hospitality industry, currently I am the head receptionist at a hotel in central Wellington. The reality of Covid 19 lockdowns has been devastating for us all in the tourism sector. We’ve
