A few photos from Chicago’s first NotWedding event

We can’t believe it’s already been a week since Chicago’s first NotWedding event! If you’re not familiar, read up on the NotWedding concept on our first report on the event. The bridal show alternative is done in the style of a big fat, fake wedding, complete with a ceremony, appetizers and late-night snacks.

Last Thursday’s event took place at City View Loft with an abundance of local wedding vendors and 165 guests in attendance. We’ll have some professional photos to share soon, but in the meantime, check out some of the photos we snapped in between stuffing our mouths with cupcakes and bacon-peanut-butter beignets.

A Kitten at kitten-themed wedding eating cake.

Kitten-themed wedding is the cutest idea ever

Yesterday, we covered the adorable backyard wedding between two rescue dogs, Lucy and Teddy. Today, we are trading canines for cats and meowing with joy over the insanely cute kitten-themed wedding. Happily, a California wedding planning company, recently gained a lot of popularity after posting photos of a recent event starring tiny orphan kittens wearing bow ties and veils. Yarn balls were used as centerpieces, a glitter box was a fab twist on the standard litter box and chairs were marked “hiss” and “purrs.”

Call it a social movement to help the homeless kitties of the world or call it the best idea ever, but either way, you can’t deny the cuteness in this kitten-themed wedding video.

Her center stone is a bit out of focus to say 100% but it's most likely an elongated cushion-cut diamond. The "criss-cross" or "crossover" band of her engagement ring and wedding band feature matching bead-set round brilliant cut stones. His ring is unique in that it features a "twist" or "braid" of metal in two parallel channels with a matte finish center.

Can you guess how many people have changed their Facebook status to ‘engaged’ this year?

It’s no surprise that many newly-engaged couples love to share their relationship announcement via Facebook, and Facebook recently found that to be exact, 2.6 million people shared their engagement on FB in 2013. If you’re one of the newly engaged, you should probably get used to seeing wedding ads all over!
