  • Planning a Catholic wedding? Read this...(very humorous)

    I got some good laughs from the following column (slightly edited) that appeared in the Oct. 4 bulletin of St. Lambert Parish in Skokie, Ill., whose pastor is the staunchly pro-life Father Richard Simon. Humorous, but true! Warning: This episode of the Rev. Know-it-all is extremely offensive. It is not about you or anyone you know. Please read the whole article. The Rev. Know-it-all is not opposed to all wedding celebrations. He is not talking about your wedding, which was a triumph of personal sanctity and good taste. He is probably just having a bad day. Dear Rev. Know-it-all, I...

  • Very 'odd': No Royal invites for Blair, Brown .. or Obama (OBAMA = BANNED IN BRITAIN !!!)

    Didn't get an invitation to Friday's big event? Well, don't feel too bad--you're in pretty good company. In a snub that's raised some eyebrows in Britain, neither of the country's two most recent former prime ministers received an invite. Also left out are President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama. There's no place for either Tony Blair or Gordon Brown among the 1,900-member congregation, even though the other two living former British leaders, Baroness Margaret Thatcher and Sir John Major, were invited. (Thatcher, 85, has declined, citing her health, but Major will be there.) Adding to the awkwardness, when Prince...

    Buckingham Palace today released an edited guest list for Prince William's marriage to Kate Middleton. A glittering list? Not quite -- this royal wedding is no Oscars red carpet. But for celebrity spotters, there will be a few famous names or, as the Palace prefers to call them, people "who may be recognizable to television viewers," to look out for on April 29. As expected, top of the list is singer and musician Elton John, who sang a moving rendition of "Candle in the Wind" at Diana, Princess of Wales's funeral in 1997. Likely to be accompanied by his civil...

    A WALT DISNEY FAIRY TALE IN A NON-FAIRY TALE WORLD - The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is nearly upon us. Cable news channels are ramping up for 24×7 coverage. Brits of all shapes and sizes are busting at the seams, and people around the world who yearn for the days of Princess Diana are coming out of the woodwork like crazy. Why? Think about it: On April 29, millions upon millions of people the world over will watch the wedding of a woman who is only famous because she is marrying a man who is only...

The impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton get spoofed in this two-minute ad featuring look-alikes for Prince Charles, Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla, and, of course, the happy couple.

    IBD Editorials ^ | April 11, 2011 | Staff
    Diplomacy: Well, it's out — the invitation list to the biggest U.K. royal wedding in three decades. A Mustique bartender merited an invite, but it seems the Obamas did not. It's pretty obvious the Brits are sending a message. Sure, the royal wedding is a ceremonial affair, and news that the U.S. president and first lady weren't invited to the nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton on April 30 won't rupture normal diplomatic relations. Still, it's eyebrow-arching, given that U.S. presidents have always been invited up till now. And the slowly leaking list of people who did get invited...

    Scotland Yard officers are working urgently to identify the extremists who clashed with police and attacked landmarks on Saturday before they can strike again. Commander Bob Broadhurst, the head of public order for the Metropolitan Police, warned that the anarchists would be "deliberately targeting" the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29. "The concern for me is that they do what they did yesterday in central London and divert resources away from my security plan and take our eye off the ball security wise," he said. Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, was under fire last night for...

Police spokesman Hugh White said Monday that officers had to restrain 28-year-old Angela Davito around 9:30 p.m. Saturday after she became disorderly at the suburban Gilbert home where her reception was held.

    LONDON (Reuters Life!) – Don't get stressed and enjoy your big day is U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's advice to Prince William, fiancee Kate Middleton and their families ahead of the royal wedding next month. "My advice is just enjoy it, enjoy it because it's (the) most extraordinary experience to see your daughter marrying someone who loves her, who wants to take care of her and you just want to be part of their happiness." Asked if she would be watching William and Kate tie the knot the April 29 ceremony in London on TV, she said: "Of course,...

    President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle have not been invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. The Queen personally invited 40 heads of state, who received the gold-embossed invitations over the weekend to the April 29 wedding of the future king. The Obamas, however, were not among them. But they can take solace in the knowledge that they will be the guests of their very own state visit to the UK in May. There have been suggestions that the state visit – the first for a US President since 2003 – was set up in return for...

    RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A bridegroom fatally shot his new wife, his best man and then himself after announcing to horrified guests that he had a "surprise" for them, authorities said Monday. Witnesses reported that 29-year-old Rogerio Damascena, a sales manager in Camaragibe, outside the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife, did not give any previous indication that anything was wrong at his wedding reception, police investigator Joao Brito said. Brito would not speculate on a possible motive, saying family members were in shock and he had not interviewed them yet.

    NY Post ^ | 12/17/2010
    US President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, will not be invited to the London wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Britain's the Daily Mail reported Friday. Since Prince William is "neither the sovereign or the heir to the throne," according to a spokesman from St. James' Palace, his April 29 wedding is not classified as a "state occasion" and escapes the more formal trappings of such events -- including the high profile guest list. The royal couple reportedly wants to fill the 2,000 seats of Westminster Abbey with charity workers and citizens deserving of special recognition as opposed...

    One question is how this soon-to-be newest member of the Royal Family will be styled. The simplest form would be 'HRH Catherine of Wales'. She would NOT be 'Princess Catherine' (no matter how much you see this term in the papers) Prince William has a courtesy title, in other words, he has no title of his own, he is a Prince merely by virtue of being the grandson of the Monarch.(William's father Charles had his own title 'Prince of Wales' when he wed and thus his wife became Princess) Because of this the closest that Kate could get to the...

    Obviously someone needed to rein in this woman during the wedding planning. What kind of ego does it require to commission a life-sized replica of yourself in cake? But what really baffles me is this: the details are exact right down to the hair clip, so what the heck is UP with that tacky red rick-rack down the skirt of the cake? "Sure, we hand-painted a matching bodice-design, copied the make-up and hairstyle, and have identical veils - but then we thought this giant rick-rack would add just the right extra touch!" ?!? Obviously Bridezilla shares my opinion: she's eying...

    Hello. It is all over the internet. I am sure you would have already seen the amateur video of the foul-mouthed wedding ceremony by now. The video shows celebrants of a muslim wedding ceremony reading some nasty stuff in local language in a prayer like fashion to the unsuspecting foreign couple in a tourist resort. Foreigners cannot get officially married in the Maldives, this was a celebration to renew vows. Nevertheless, it was a shameful and a derogatory act by the celebrants. It should not have happened. A lot have happened in the week following the release of the amateur...
