The Superbowl, tips from Fergie’s wedding and US Weekly
Monday, February 2
Last night, as millions of people around the country were watching the super bowl, I too was at a super bowl party. I was quite bored with the game during the first quarter so I decided to catch up on my celebrity gossip by reading US Weekly. Don’t get me wrong, I like football and even grew up watching it with my Dad. I know the game and usually can get into a bit, but the first half wasn’t too inspiring. So the cover of US Weekly with Fergie & Josh’s Wedding Album was calling my name.
As a wedding planner I enjoy reading up on the celebrity gossip and what’s new in the world of weddings as reported by the smut kings. Through US Weekly I learned that Fergie & Josh’s wedding had an an unofficial theme of “down-to-earth fun”. What exactly is down to earth fun for celebs you ask? Looks like guests being treated to pink lemonade, beer served from a keg in frosted beer mugs and handing out fishing poles to guests (their location was by a lake).
Other trends at their wedding:
Their favors were rubber bracelets with the words A PERFECT PAIR inscribed.
$25,000 in flowers consisting of gardenias, roses and the like
Weddings songs like Crazy by Gnarls Barkley, Tiny Dancer by Elton John, Mercy by Duffy, Low by Flo Ridda, Umbrella by Rihanna, I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry, Billie Jean by Michael Jackson, Flashing Lights by Kanye West and My Humps by The Black Eyed Peas.
Fergie wore two dresses
she had a 150 lb cake that required 4 people to carry
By the second quarter, with 7:33 minutes left the game picked up and I had to put down the magazine. We all know what happened and the final minutes of the game were super exciting to watch! I’m glad I was able to participate in one of the country’s fun traditions and do some Calluna Events “work” at the same time.
