We’re already well into June and so far this year, there have been plenty of celebrity weddings to feast our eyes on. June started off with some classic celebrity upsets, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to call it quits, only for him to propose to her just three days later. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Dua Lipa and Nasim Ashraf got married just a few days after her 24th birthday. Another celebrity wedding that was closely followed by many was Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s. The couple kept their engagement a secret for so long and finally tied the knot in an intimate, private ceremony in New York City on June 12th. They were later joined by family and friends for a celebration brunch.

The wedding marked a major turning point for both Kristen and Rob. After years of being together, they’d finally decided to take the plunge and commit to each other. It was also the first time that Kristen publicly acknowledged her relationship with Rob. On the day of the wedding, we look back at their engagement and wedding trends.

Wedding Rings

In 2018, it seems like everyone is getting hitched! From Kate Middleton and Prince William to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, getting married has become cool again. It started with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s historic wedding in May and has continued since then. As the summer wedding season looms, we take a look at the most in-demand wedding rings.

Gold And Diamonds

When it comes to adding a bit of sparkle to your engagement ring, diamonds are still the ultimate choice. However, for those looking for pure gold rings, then perhaps a closer look at the yellow metal might be necessary. On the other end of the spectrum, black diamonds have become very popular as an engagement ring choice due to their intensity. As an alternative, many have turned to the colorless diamond, which is essentially a fancy diamond.

Engagement Rings

For those looking to add a touch of romance to their wedding day, personalized engagement rings are the way to go. The couple will have a unique story to tell each other on their big day and personalized rings let them keep those stories forever. Engagement rings are more about meaning than looks, so it’s important to find a memorable quote or a sweet inscription to personalize the ring.

Private Ceremony

It’s no secret that weddings can be very stressful events. There are so many people, places, and things to think about, that it can be easy to go overboard. For those looking for a more elegant and less stressful experience, then a private ceremony is the way to go. Those planning a wedding know that there are so many things to think about, so a good night’s sleep can help make the entire event more relaxed and enjoyable.


Another way to add some luxury to your wedding day is with a beautiful buffet brunch. Having food stations with all the traditional Western wedding dishes as well as Asian and Middle Eastern fare is the perfect way to celebrate a multicultural wedding. It allows guests to indulge in all types of cuisine and provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase the food diversity of your wedding party and guests.

Paying Guests

One of the most important things to consider about your wedding is who you’re paying to attend. It’s never a good idea to rely solely on family and friends for your wedding party, as they may not all be able to afford to pay for the event. If you want to keep the wedding within your means and don’t want to hurt your budget, then consider welcoming some paid guests. Professional etiquette guides recommend asking guests to pay for their ticket upon arrival, or offering special rates for those who are on vacation or a student. It’s also a good idea to put a hold on your ticket until your guest arrives, so you don’t lose out on any revenue if they decide to leave early.


The wedding ceremony is an important part of the wedding process, as it’s where you and your partner express your love and commitment to each other. It can be a beautiful and emotional moment for both of you, so take time to write out your vows and pray together. Vows aren’t just for the ceremony either – it’s good to have some special words to share with your guests at the reception!


The wedding reception follows the ceremony and can be seen as the culmination of the couple’s wedding day. It’s a great opportunity for guests to mingle and celebrate with the newlyweds. If you’re looking for a less formal affair with lots of laughter and celebration, then a reception is the place to be. Consider inviting some of your favorite bands to play during the reception to give it the party vibe you’re going for.

Who Wants to Be a Bridesmaid?

If you’re looking for an elegant and simple way to add some luxury to your wedding day, then bridesmaids are perfect for the job. It’s good to have a few bridesmaids who are truly invested in helping you celebrate the big day. It shows that you’re comfortable enough to trust them with such an important day, and it creates a more luxurious atmosphere. It can also be a good way to find additional support if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
