That to me was the most poignant part of Diana’s wedding as she was walking up the aisle and her eyes were going left to right, looking at people and smiling in the way that Diana did – and that diamond tiara glittering like mad. It was great.

— Bruce Oldfield

One of the great things about being a writer/journalist is that my boss loves me to go out and do features on being someone else. I did a feature on Kate Middleton, where I went to an incredible fancy state home in the countryside, put on a wedding dress and posed for engagement pictures with a fake Prince William.

— Caitlin Moran

Everywhere I go, people ask me about Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. Everywhere I go. I always say to her, I’m like, ‘Being friends with you is a burden. You think it’s hard to be friends with me?’

— Chelsea Handler

I’ve never crashed a wedding. When I was a kid I, of course, used to crash parties. Crashing a wedding is difficult though because you have to have the suit, and you have to have information in case someone catches you. You have to know at least some names and something.

— Christopher Walken

Narciso Rodriguez was my first fashion big brother. He made my wedding dress, which was wonderful.

— Claire Danes

The wedding took place in Vermont, where they have legalized gay civil unions, and I married a woman.

— Craig Ferguson

One of the most common reasons people renovate their homes is a change in their lifestyle – an upcoming wedding, a new baby, or grown children moving away.

— Candice Olson

If I felt, in the event of a royal wedding, inspired to write about people coming together in marriage or civil partnership, I would just be grateful to have an idea for the poem. And if I didn’t, I’d ignore it.

— Carol Ann Duffy

At my wedding, I was dancing so furiously that I fell hard on my kneecaps. The next morning, my knees were so swollen that I had to get a wheelchair at the airport to go on my honeymoon.

— Casey Wilson

Recently, I was preparing to sing Springsteen’s ‘If I Should Fall Behind’ for a wedding and was unable to get through it without tears. My wife handed me ‘Love You Forever.’ I read it. I cried. But that cry somehow cured me of crying while singing the song. Go figure.

— Clyde Edgerton

That’s What She Said’ is not Hollywood’s standard picture of women: preternaturally gorgeous, wedding obsessed, boy crazy, fashion focused, sexed up ‘girl’ women. These are real women, comically portrayed, who are trying to wrestle with the very expectations of womanhood that Hollywood movies set up.

— Carrie Preston

I got my first big paycheck for ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding.’ This was in the days when you actually did get paid to have a supporting role. It just doesn’t happen like that anymore, but this was in the ’90s. It was the golden age!

— Carrie Preston

I really did put up all my wedding pictures on my website. And I swear to you, my wedding pictures got downloaded just as much as my bikini pictures.

— Cindy Margolis

In 1966, I bought my parents a carriage clock for their silver wedding anniversary. It was last wound 30 years later, in December 1996, the month my father died.

— Clive Sinclair

I’ve chosen my wedding ring large and heavy to continue forever. But exactly because of that all the time that Dave and I have an argument I feel it like handcuffs, and on anger time I throw it in a basket. Poor Dave, he bought me three wedding rings already!

— Carmen Miranda

The Hiltons know how to put on a good wedding, that’s all I can say.

— Conrad Sewell

My sister really drooled a lot when she was younger. For her wedding, I was going to get her one of those lace drool cups that go around the ears.

— Cheri Oteri

There’s a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more.

— Dave Grohl

The wedding ring on my left hand was bought by my grandfather, Samuel Miliband, in Brussels in 1920. I never knew him, as he died when I was one. But his ring was kept by my aunt until it was placed on my finger by my wife Louise 32 years later.

— David Miliband

Jody Hill, who I created ‘Eastbound And Down’ and ‘Fist Foot Way’ with, was my best man at my wedding.

— Danny McBride

It is sweet that people want to know everything about my wedding, but they should also respect my privacy.

— Divyanka Tripathi

I am a celebrity, but I don’t want people standing outside my wedding venue.

— Divyanka Tripathi

I saw a photograph of a wedding conducted by Reverend Moon of the Unification Church. I wanted to understand this event, and the only way to understand it was to write about it.

— Don DeLillo

I believe the wedding vows are sacred and precious, and it’s been one of my goals as a writer to portray the kind of marriages I’ve seen modeled in my family – my parents and grandparents, who all celebrated fifty-year anniversaries and well-beyond.

— Deborah Raney

We all went to Kelsey’s wedding, and yeah, we go to parties. We also go to each other’s house. A group of us got together over at Kelsey’s and just read through some plays just for the fun of it. That may not be everyone’s idea of a good time, but we had a good time.

— David Hyde Pierce

Granddad offered me one hundred dollars if I would cut my mop of curly hair into a neat military style. Just before the wedding, I got a light trim. It wasn’t enough for Granddad, and he didn’t pay.

— David Eisenhower

After I had the Caesarean, I was told I had really strong stomach muscles and so would heal very quickly. And I did. I was up walking about within three hours. Six days after having her, I was out shopping and shortly after that I made it to David Walliams’ wedding.

— Denise Van Outen

My mother says I didn’t open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked.

— Elizabeth Taylor

In the Mexican culture, we never miss a baptism, a birthday, a baby shower, a wedding shower, a wedding. You must show up. Otherwise, you’ll be in big trouble.

— Eva Longoria

I’m used to being in front of camera and knowing what to think. But if you’re asking me to be me, I get very self-conscious. My job isn’t to be me. Being an actor, people think you can do a eulogy at a funeral, a speech at a wedding. I find all that very nerve-racking.

— Eddie Marsan

Whenever I went to a wedding or a party, girls kept complaining about their shoes. I love to dance, and I wanted them to have shoes they could keep on all night.

— Edgardo Osorio

Growing up, I had one very specific idea of what a wedding should be, and that was the wedding of Fraulein Maria and Captain von Trapp in ‘The Sound of Music.’

— Ellie Kemper

If you’re going to plan a wedding, then a certain amount of suffering is not a choice.

— Ellie Kemper

I grew up in a very small town, but it happened to be in western Massachusetts, where there were a lot of gay people. I remember my aunt going to a gay wedding when I was 11, and I thought it was the coolest thing.

— Elizabeth Banks

Of course, I do have a slight advantage over the rest of you. It helps in a pinch to be able to remind your bride that you gave up a throne for her.

— Edward VIII

Personally, I’m an advocate for short engagements. Long sometimes means there is a reason for it. Two years engaged and no wedding… I’d be upset.

— Emily Blunt

Hierarchical formulations died because their wedding cake levels posited a multiply fractured cosmos that does not match the Space Age revelation of a unified universe in which the earth is clearly in, rather than separated from, the heavens. Hierarchical representations do not reflect what either the world or we are like.

— Eugene Kennedy

When he came back from downtown, he had forgotten to bring his license, his identification, the $2 for the wedding license. So we got married two days later.

— Eydie Gorme

In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.

— Enid Bagnold

If it were not for the presents, an elopement would be preferable.

— George Ade

My wedding was at home, so I didn’t really want to wear a veil in my house. Instead I wore a lot of diamond hair clips. They were brooches, actually, designed by Lorraine Schwartz.

— Georgina Chapman

I didn’t finish my dress until about three days before my wedding – I had the flu and was stitching it from my bed. And the tulle came back from India all brown. We had to wash it for hours, but that didn’t dissuade me from wearing it.

— Georgina Chapman

I remember when I was in school, they would ask, ‘What are you going to be when you grow up?’ and then you’d have to draw a picture of it. I drew a picture of myself as a bride.

— Gwen Stefani

I try to remember, as I hear about friends getting engaged, that it’s not about the ring and it’s not about the wedding. It’s a grave thing, getting married. And it’s easy to get swept up in the wrong things.

— Gwyneth Paltrow

When widows exclaim loudly against second marriages, I would always lay a wager than the man, If not the wedding day, is absolutely fixed on.

— Henry Fielding

I mean, I do wear a wedding ring and take it off when I shoot.

— Henry Ian Cusick

What an electric thrill it sends up and down the spine, how it sets the heart racing: A Royal Romance! A Royal Wedding! The pomp and the pageantry!

— Hamish Bowles

My sister, singer Jessie Ware, and I are always exchanging music. We brainstormed her wedding playlist for months.

— Hannah Ware

We rent one in three tuxedos in the U.S. and Canada, and if we make a mistake, our employees will deliver to the customer’s home, office, or wedding. We get a couple hundred letters a week praising the service in our stores.

— George Zimmer

I had a huge Indian wedding, and I did it for my wife, and I did it for my white friends.

— Hasan Minhaj

One tradition I have with my friends is that when one of us gets married, we have a ton of fragrance oils and pretty bottles at the bachelorette party. Everyone puts a drop or two in a bottle for the bride and makes a wish, and the bride wears our creation on her wedding day.

— Jennifer Aniston

My brother liked sewing and sculpting and making things, and my sister sewed and painted and cooked and baked. She’s a professional baker now and makes the most gorgeous sculpture-like cakes. She’s the queen of wedding cakes in the Lake Tahoe area.

— John Lasseter

I love 3-D. I have been a big fan of 3-D for a long, long time. I took my 1988 wedding pictures in 3-D!

— John Lasseter

I am usually part of any disaster at a wedding if I’m a bridesmaid, which I’ve been lucky enough to be several times.

— Jennifer Garner

When I got married, the Sun ran the headline: ‘Here comes the bride, all fat and wide.’ Luckily, it was a few days after the wedding – but it was still hideous to read at a great romantic moment.

— Jo Brand

Wedding is destiny, and hanging likewise.

— John Heywood

Jealousy, greed, fear. We’re all full of these things. But also love and compassion. If you saw a drowning baby, it wouldn’t matter if you were wearing a tuxedo on the way to your own wedding. You’d jump in to save him.

— John McAfee

I hope that when I’m 80 years old, people will still be talking about my wedding.

— Jennifer Hudson

I think a lot of people get so obsessed with the wedding and the expense of the wedding that they miss out on what the real purpose is. It’s not about a production number, it’s about a meaningful moment between two people that’s witnessed by people that they actually really know and care about.

— Jane Seymour

When I auditioned for ‘Wedding Crashers,’ the producers had never seen any of my other work except for Bond. I got ‘Wedding Crashers’ partly because I was a Bond girl.

— Jane Seymour

It’s interesting because a lot of my 16-year-old kids’ friends know me from ‘Wedding Crashers,’ and not so much Bond. My kids have a good laugh. I was 20 then. The look I had then was the look that a lot of their friends are assuming now. They think it’s cool. What goes around comes around.

— Jane Seymour

I love doing comedy. Absolutely love it. After ‘Wedding Crashers,’ people suddenly realized that it was something I could do.

— Jane Seymour

I met Kanye. I’m starstruck, man, but I stayed away from that guy. I didn’t want him to go on a rant, go off on me. He did it at his wedding.

— Jay Pharoah

It’s very nice to be asked to anybody’s wedding. Particularly if it’s the Prince of Wales. I learned a lot from it, which was to end early and get away. I suppose one would have to look back historically and see who other royals had at their weddings. Were there people at Queen Elizabeth’s wedding who were common like myself?

— Jools Holland

No jealousy their dawn of love overcast, nor blasted were their wedded days with strife each season looked delightful as it past, to the fond husband and the faithful wife.

— James Beattie

It happened in Miami, in Coral Gables, a great big ol’ Cuban wedding. It was pretty intense.

— Jon Secada

I feel as though my career really hit its high point when I was cast as a supporting actress in ‘American Wedding’. I thought the script had a lot of depth and intelligence, and it really just jumped off the page.

— January Jones

If you had asked me when I was 28 and in my wedding dress if I ever thought I would end up in my forties flipping my husband the bird over potato chips, I’d say you were crazy.

— Jenna McCarthy

I like wearing my wedding ring, it’s nice.

— Jerry O’Connell

If you write a song, and you go into a restaurant, and there’s a guy with a piano singing and he’s playing piano, singing your song, or you hear it at a wedding or at an airport… it’s fun!

— Jesse Harris

I see an insidious problem in the marketing of weddings as ‘the happiest day of your life.’ The pressure that is placed upon this event to be the alpha and omega of your entire existence makes it, I think, into a kind of nuptial New Year’s Eve, and we all know how that usually turns out.

— Jessi Klein

I wear my wedding ring. We talk about when we’re going to get married again, which we hope is going to take place some time in this incredibly hectic calendar year.

— Jim Lampley

I love rings, but I can’t wear them. I mean, look at my knuckles. My fingers and joints are so swollen from years of playing. That means no wedding band, either. Luckily, I have a very understanding wife.

— Justin Tuck

My biggest blast-off hit was ‘You Raise Me Up.’ If you ever have a wedding or a funeral, it’s a good pick.

— Josh Groban

The day of the wedding went like these things generally do, full of anxious moments interspersed with black comedy.

— Janet Street-Porter

My five best friends, who were my bridesmaids in my wedding, are still my best friends.

— Jill Kargman

Our whole wedding cost 180 bucks. Afterward, we re-heated lasagna for everyone and set off fireworks.

— Larry the Cable Guy

What the bride should do is call guests who have young children and say: ‘I’d love to have the kids at the wedding, but we won’t have room. Would you get a baby sitter, and when we get back from our honeymoon, we’ll have you guys over?’

— Letitia Baldrige

Well, I’ll tell you something, this wedding is something that I will always, always cherish. It was a show of love and support and kindness like I’d never seen from the people, and that’s who I entertain. I entertain the people.

— Liza Minnelli

I spent so many years in terror of ‘making it legal’ because the expression rang all too true – the wedding ritual struck me as nothing but a flowery front for the fulfilment of countless, tedious contracts and obligations.

— Lynn Coady

All weddings, except those with shotguns in evidence, are wonderful.

— Liz Smith

I love Spanish cities, particularly Barcelona, Madrid and Palma, which has the most amazing cathedral that I once went to for a wedding.

— Louise Nurding

Growing up, I was never the kind of girl to dream about wedding dresses and pretty houses.

— Louise Nurding

I worked a lot with Nick Knight and John Galliano when John was at Dior. He also made my wedding dress. He’ll always hold a special place I have most of my memorable, iconic moments in fashion with him.

— Liberty Ross

It’s important to still look like yourself on your wedding day, so I didn’t do anything drastic.

— Lily Aldridge

I usually have a few coins in my pocket when I’m playing, but the one I use to mark my ball on the green is a special silver coin that my wife designed for me. It has our wedding date inscribed on it.

— Louis Oosthuizen

As a child, as a cinemagoer, I think there is nothing better than being in a cinema or watching a film. I think it’s just a while magical… it almost feels like you’re at a big party in India, where you’re singing, you’re dancing, you’re laughing, you’re crying, you feel like you’re at a wedding because our films invariably cover all emotions.

— Karan Johar

So many people say you have to remember to grab hold of your bride or groom and spend time with them. I think if we had done a traditional wedding, we would have been doing it for everyone else, but this was about the two of us.

— Katherine Kelly

I love going to other people’s weddings, but I have never desired a big white wedding for myself, and it has never been put on me as a pressure, an expectation.

— Katherine Kelly

The press is just not your friend when it comes to a marriage. That’s why we didn’t sell the pictures of our wedding, and we got offered millions of dollars for them, millions.

— Katy Perry

I’ve always been the type to fall in love fast and, with every boyfriend, I plan out my wedding in my head.

— Kim Kardashian

A big part of being in a wedding is the financial obligation, and that’s something that people don’t really talk about, but if you’re asked to be in a wedding, you’re gonna have to fork over some cash.

— Kristen Wiig

The Queen’s wedding dress in 1947, there was some embroidery on the train which was definitely there to illustrate new dawn/post-war optimism, that sort of thing.

— Kate Reardon

I myself was a wedding photographer when I was, like, 16.

— Kacy Hill

I’ve always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well. What it evolved into was my pseudo-waitressing job when I was auditioning. I didn’t wait tables. I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding.

— Meghan Markle

I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding.

— Meghan Markle

Somebody ripped their pants open at my wedding, dipping my mother. My mother is not a lady who throws herself into a dip that often, so I don’t think he thought she was really going to do it.

— Melissa McCarthy

I love pizza. I want to marry it, but it would just be to eat her family at the wedding.

— Mike Birbiglia

I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama – then candidate Obama – going through Iowa making promises. The gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I’ve seen, well, since the Kardashian wedding and the promise of ’til death do we part.

— Mitt Romney

I met Jason on a charity walk in 2001, and we got married on a friend’s boat in Panama two years later. It was the perfect wedding for two people who’d already been married and who weren’t teenagers.

— Mariella Frostrup

All the information you could want is constantly streaming at you like a runaway truck – books, newspaper stories, Web sites, apps, how-to videos, this article you’re reading, even entire magazines devoted to single subjects like charcuterie or wedding cakes or pickles.

— Mario Batali

I’d want it to be really special to both of us, but I’m a huge fan of ‘At Last’ as a wedding song. But what’s also really cool is songs that no one else would have at their wedding, like an obscure Radiohead song.

— Mary Lambert

It gave me a lot of pleasure and pride that 90 percent of the crew for ‘Monsoon Wedding,’ and most of my film, are women. We get the work done, you know, much lesser play of ego… And I really believe in harmony, I believe in working in a spirit of egolessness and that the film is bigger than all of us.

— Mira Nair

My family is almost exactly like the one in ‘Monsoon Wedding’. We are very open, fairly liberal, loud people.

— Mira Nair

I saw a photo of a Christian Lacroix couture dress when I was in my teens and decided right then that that’s how I wanted to look on my wedding day. In my mind, that’s what angels looked like.

— Margherita Missoni

I loved everything about my wedding look, but, in retrospect, I would have changed the position of where we attached the veil on my head. Make sure you test a few different placements and styles before the big day to make a clear vision and plan with your hairstylist.

— Margherita Missoni

A lawyer I once knew told me of a strange case, a suffragette who had never married. After her death, he opened her trunk and discovered 50 wedding gowns.

— Marguerite Young

Let’s say you go to a friend’s wedding, or Thanksgiving, or Halloween. It’d be great the next day to see what went on with your friends’ Thanksgiving weekend, or all the costumes they wore on Halloween, and be able to look back and see what they wore the year before, and the year before that.

— Mike McCue

For a girl, the wedding is when you’re married. For a guy, it’s when you get engaged. It takes a real aggressive human being to back out between the ring and the wedding.

— Max Greenfield

Since the day Brahma created the world to this day, no one’s ever been able to satisfy a wedding guest. They always find some opportunity or other to find fault and criticise. One who can’t even afford a dry piece of bread at home becomes a lord at the wedding party.

— Munshi Premchand

I tried writing this book about a singer in a wedding band, but realized I only wanted to write the book so I could have an excuse to sing with a wedding band as research. That’s not a good enough reason to write a book.

— Megan McCafferty

Now in India, a village boy who has worked his way up to work at a call center, or if he gets a job working even as a busboy in a Taj or an Oberoi hotel, he’ll put on his wedding announcement with pride, ‘Busboy at the Taj’ or ‘Call center, Office Tiger.’

— Marie Brenner

I was the official wedding photographer at one of my best friends’ weddings. Fortunately she was one of the most easygoing brides ever, so she made it easy for me.

— Natalie Coughlin

I admire Eudora Welty. ‘Delta Wedding’ is a book I’ve given as a present to numerous women. Eudora Welty rocks. She writes such jewel-like, fine, refined short stories.

— Nell Zink

If you’re engaged more than a year, there’s something up. There’s lot of debate as to whether one should or shouldn’t get married, but when you get engaged, it’s a promise to get married, and if you don’t just do it within a year, one of the parties is using the excuse of, like, ‘I can’t find the right venue’ to put off the wedding.

— Nicholas Stoller

Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted Valentino to design my wedding dress. Valentino is the definition of timeless elegance. I don’t think there’s another couture house like it.

— Nicky Hilton

My favorite time to dance is at, like, wedding receptions, when it’s all ages and everyone seems to be having fun.

— Neil Patrick Harris

On the publicity tour of ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding,’ I was asked over and over again, if, as the writer, I felt it was a fair depiction of real life to have someone of my er, below average looks, hook up with hottie John Corbett.

— Nia Vardalos

I was in a fertility situation publicly, so I disappeared. I was very satisfied just being to able to creatively express myself with writing. The white hot publicity that came from ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ was appreciated but not sought, so I was happy to walk away from it and then write.

— Nia Vardalos

The white hot publicity that came from ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ was appreciated but not sought, so I was happy to walk away from it and then write.

— Nia Vardalos

When I got married in 1991, I had never been to a wedding, so I didn’t know that my wedding was tacky. I didn’t know that I was getting married in a quinceanera dress, because there was nobody there to cry over me and tell me I look like a fool.

— Niecy Nash

I’d imagine my wedding as a fairy tale… huge, beautiful and white.

— Paris Hilton

Often, what makes my job so exciting is designing for the mother whose dream has been to wear one of my hats at her child’s wedding. I feel as responsible for making her feel like a million dollars as I do for somebody in the public eye.

— Philip Treacy

For me, life has either been a wake or a wedding.

— Peter O’Toole

When I was a seminarian, I was dazzled by a girl I met at an uncle’s wedding. I was surprised by her beauty, her intellectual brilliance… and, well, I was bowled over for quite a while.

— Pope Francis

I used to work all the time, and now if there is a wedding, there’s a concert, I’m there.

— Petra Nemcova

I chose my wife, as she did her wedding gown, for qualities that would wear well.

— Oliver Goldsmith

I haven’t made many wedding dresses. It’s a dress very, very important for the girl it’s important to know the person, I believe, but at the same time it should be a shock to the person – the person should be shocked to be suddenly revealed. That’s the work of a designer sometimes, to propose an ID of look.

— Olivier Theyskens

It was about 2012, 2013. I started from zero. Small fashion shows, small photoshoots. I’ve seen a lot. I’ve seen a lot of things up close. I married my sister off I gave jahez for her wedding. I tried to keep relations going with my family. I bought a house for them in Multan. My parents are settled in Multan my house is there.

— Qandeel Baloch

People ask if my parents are hippies, but they’re actually very conservative. A girl called Rebel sang at their wedding, and that’s where my name came from.

— Rebel Wilson

I use filming as an excuse to take classes. I got my certification in sailing for ‘Wedding Crashers,’ and now I can handle a 26-foot boat. I played a seamstress once, so I took sewing classes. I love dipping into these other lives.

— Rachel McAdams

I love auditioning. Since ‘The Notebook’ and ‘Wedding Crashers,’ I don’t have to audition anymore, and I miss it. You get to show your interpretation of the character. I get nervous when I don’t audition. What if they hate what I want to do?

— Rachel McAdams

As a pastor, you get invited into the most poignant moments of people’s lives. Whether it’s a wedding or a funeral or a hospital visit, you get invited into the center of the event, whether or not you know the people.

— Rob Bell

Even if you believe a creator god invented the laws of physics, would you so insult him as to suggest that he might capriciously and arbitrarily violate them in order to walk on water, or turn water into wine as a cheap party trick at a wedding?

— Richard Dawkins

It’s a funny thing that when a man hasn’t anything on earth to worry about, he goes off and gets married.

— Robert Frost

My uncle was an Elvis impersonator – his name was Perry, and he went by ‘Elvis Perry’ – and my work as a wedding singer landed me a spot in his act.

— Ryan Gosling

On the night of the winter solstice, when the dead get their annual reprieve, they go up to the 24-hour donut shop and wedding chapel to get hitched. Marriage is a good and proper pursuit for dead people. For a while, it relieves the dark, shuddering loneliness of the afterlife.

— Rachel Swirsky

Your wedding is your red carpet moment, and while brides definitely can take some chances with style, you don’t want to look like a fad.

— Reem Acra

When I celebrated my bar mitzvah, there was no cake. Today, there is no such thing as a bar mitzvah in the United States without a special cake. It can be even more complicated and expensive than a wedding cake, because bar-mitzvah cakes are often based on a particular theme.

— Ron Ben-Israel

I don’t follow trends. I make each cake for a particular wedding, or event.

— Ron Ben-Israel

I have a crusade against fondant, also shortening. There’s no reason why wedding cakes can’t taste good if you know what you’re doing.

— Ron Ben-Israel

Where does it stop? You get offered money for your wedding, then for your kids, new houses, holidays… We earn enough from football and sponsorships, why do you need any more?

— Ryan Giggs

I always had boyfriends, but I never imagined a proposal or a wedding. To me, that was like having a ball and chain round your neck.

— Sandra Bullock

The prenup needs to be drawn up months before the wedding, not days – it’s not something you slap together and sign in the car on the way to the ceremony. A shotgun prenup might not hold up in court.

— Suze Orman

I’m the person who will go to a wedding and switch the place cards around because I don’t want to sit next to someone I don’t know, because I’m so bad at chatting to strangers.

— Sharon Horgan

When I planned my wedding the first time, my ex-husband and I, we were both struggling comics. I had a TV show that had gotten cancelled. Basically, I rented a wedding gown the reception hall smelled like feet.

— Sherri Shepherd

On my wedding day. I didn’t want a natural, blushing-bride look – I had a full-on hairdo and red lips. I thought it would be disingenuous to do the whole virginal look, so even though I had the white dress, I had pink net underneath.

— Sophie Ellis-Bextor

About 80 percent of the photos on Flickr are public and searchable by everyone. In one sense, it’s a place where people upload snapshots from the family reunion, wedding or the birth of a baby or something like that, but it’s also a place where people go to show what the world looks like to them.

— Stewart Butterfield

I’ve been married before, but I’ve never had my dream wedding in Vegas. I wanted to do it there because it’s casual, quick, not religious and, most of all, very romantic.

— Sinead O’Connor

People always complain, ‘you never invited me to your wedding’, but I prefer casual weddings.

— Sinead O’Connor

A walk through the storage facility of the community museum where I worked might easily have convinced you that people in the past wore only wedding dresses, carried silver candlesticks, and played with porcelain dolls.

— Susanna Kearsley

People didn’t just wear wedding dresses in the past. They also wore plain cotton shifts beneath them. As pretty as the dresses might be, and as lovely as they might look on display, if a museum doesn’t hang the shifts beside them or acknowledge that the shifts existed, that exhibit’s incomplete.

— Susanna Kearsley

My mom used to make my costumes when I was little she sews a lot. One year, I was a bride and I had a big wedding dress and a bouquet. Another year I was a medieval princess with a long teal dress and a veil. It was a little extravagant, but it was cute!

— Sasha Pieterse

I felt very unstressed on my wedding day. I’m very grateful for that… spending the day on my own, being super quiet and happy and just puttering around doing my own thing.
