I never once dreamt I’d have the opportunity to use a photo from Britney and Kevin’s wedding again, much less the one proving that he had his groomsmen wear watching track suits. BUT IT’S TOPICAL!
THE TASK: Because the prize this week is wedding-themed, as you will soon see, tell us which celebrity wedding (past or future or theoretical) you’d most like to attend. I’ll chose the winners by random draw. I obviously would have liked to attend the Britney/K Fed wedding, as well as the infamous Celine Dion wedding where she rode in on an elephant, and (surely it goes without saying), Kate&Wills. As well as my future marriage to Jon Hamm, which will be a PARTY, I can tell you. But you must pick but one.
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday.
THE PRIZE: We’re delighted to be giving away three (3) copies of Jen Doll’s awesome new memoir, Save the Date: The Occasional Mortifications of a Serial Wedding Guest, which is awesome and fabulous, and you will love. Per Amazon:
“Weddings. They’re fun, festive, and joyful, and at a time when people marry later in life—and sometimes not at all—they offer endless opportunities to reexamine love and what we want for ourselves, regardless of whether or not our aim is a walk down the aisle. In Save the Date, Jen Doll charts the course of her own perennial wedding guesthood, from the ceremony of distant family members when she was eight to the recent nuptials of a new boyfriend’s friends. There’s the first trip home for a childhood pal’s big day, in which she learns that her first love has eloped to Hawaii. There’s the destination wedding attended with little baggage beyond a suitcase of strappy sandals and summery party dresses. Regrettably, there is a series of celebrations that mean the end to a valued friendship. There’s also the wedding that offers all the promise of new love. Wedding experiences come in as varied an assortment as the gowns at any bridal shop, and Doll turns a keen eye to each, delivering a heartfelt exploration of contemporary relationships. Funny, honest, and affecting, Save the Date is a fresh and spirited look at the many ways in which we connect to one another. “
‘Tis the season, too — I was just at a wedding Saturday — so this is both timely and awesome. Good luck!
