Celebrity Marriages that Stood the Test of Fame versus Love

They said that love and fame cannot be together in one place that for the celebrity couples to stand firm as husband and wife is more of a warfare than a fairy tale. Basing on the divorce rate that have occurred since show business have started, we could say that a handful of them succeeded. The following are the thriving unions that are wonderfully around still.


Of course a rock star deserves to have a supermodel as his wife but no one really would have thought the marriage will last for 20 years to this day. It is really astounding how love works with David Bowie and Iman belonging in two different worlds but bound as one.

Celine Dion and husband, Rene Angelil

The marriage of Celine Dion and Rene Angelil is one of those relationships that people raise their eyebrow on but you see, love can never be explained that despite forecasts of divorce, they stayed glued on each other’s arms.

Sting and Trudy Styler Wedding

31 is quite a good number of years of togetherness for this couple. Sting and Trudy Styler have always indicated that one of the most important parts of marriage is sex.  Maybe this is how they made it beyond the constant brush of fame that they are still together up to this instance and going strong.

Union of the Icons: World Famous Marriages

Weddings are always grand as they should be because it is the celebration of nothing less than love and life. Some weddings are kept private, some are just like every other marriage but there are some that have created a phenomenon in history that no one could ever forget.


On 29th July 1981, a faithful day that united Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles of Wales is the moment that has etched a monumental union that is remembered even now. Although it did not last because of controversies, the alleged divorce and finally the demise of the beautiful Diana, this wedding will always be committed to memory  as a fairy tale that came to life.


Jacqueline, a fashion icon and John F. Kennedy, president of the United States were married on a lovely day in 1961. The beaming couple is witnessed to be filled with love and devotion for each other. It lasted only for 2 years though because of the assassination of John.


Grace Kelly’s, a legendary actor, marriage to Prince Rainier III created a media stir not because of its royalty alone but because of the spectacular wedding dress and the equally famed veil that each designer have made their rendition of.


The great actress Audrey Hepburn was married to Mel Ferrer  also an actor in 1954.


And who could forget John and Yoko? Well, the marriage ended in the tragic death of The Beatles’ front man John Lennon but no one can ever shrug the interracial union and the affection that this two love birds have taught the world.

Celebrated marriages could not last that long because of too many divergent forces but  we could always say that on that day, there was real love.

Back to Back Bewitchment

The details that the bride would give her attention to in choosing the wedding dress to be paraded on the altar should not only be focused on the front but have a breathtaking back view as well. Remember that during the ceremony three quarter of the time will be spent showing your back and even when you are about to throw the bouquet during the reception.

Here are the most promising backs of the year.


Bella Swan’s modified portrait back trimmed with lace and gloriously crossed with aligned covered   buttons is the feature that marked the minds of the Twilight Saga’s fans.


This gown on the other hand is obviously a masterpiece that no one can turn their back from.

Claire Pettibone S2013 Collection

The vintage with this back is not only sweet but feisty with the translucent lace back amplified by the floral gilded draping ribbons on the shoulders.


This sequin and rhinestone flanked bare back should be worn by brides that is proud of their rear side because they truly deserve beauty such as this.


Dare to expose it all if you wish for it on your wedding day because no one will have the courage to say a thing if you wear the white dress elegantly.


And what will be the use of having a grand reception if your gown is not heavily ruffled down to the tip of the royal train?


Medieval wedding gowns can only be successful if it is fluffed to the fullest and has a magnificent back side.


And you will never be wrong if you choose to have the gentlest fabric for a wedding gown splashed with precious stones and sequins on the electric pleated, leafy patterned layers from front to back to your heart’s content.

The back side maybe underrated most of the time but today, they will change your mind.

Renewing the Vows: Saying I Do Again and Again

Who said that you cannot get married over and over again? With the same person whom you promised love and forever, every year is worth it because it is a tangible truth that love has no bounds and forever is every day.

Renewing your vows for each other and reaffirming the love that binds two people to stay strong despite crisis and chaos is a good consolation for the effort you both have exerted through the years. So it is only right to celebrate it and honor each other for faithfulness and togetherness.

Well, we can say that kids could bring about both hard core screw ups and pure joy but wearing the white dress once again can give us pride and esteem for ourselves.

They say that “love is expressed more in deeds than words” that it would be more solid if it is written down on paper and sealed. It really does not matter how many times you get married. Some would do it every 25 years, other on their golden anniversary while those who are filled with love it even goes out of their noses, celebrate the renewal of the vows like every 5 years.

Marriage is a union where both parties say their “I do” and give out a promise on that ceremony to love their spouse for as long as they live. The realization of that promises will create a strong bond between these people and the renewal of the vows will be a lovely occasion.

Sweet and Sunny Beach Wedding

Nothing can top a beach wedding when it comes to raw fun. The waves and the sand are spellbinding that make brides even in their most superb wedding gowns go barefoot running into the water. Romance by all means can be expressed to the maximum level if there is freedom.

You really do not need a lot of flounce on weddings on the beach because the place is beautiful as it is that it requires just little finishing touches to personalize it. Messages and invitations in a bottle with strings and starfish embellishments are simple but charming.

The flowers will surely be damaged by the furious wind on the seashore so the idea of putting them in tall glass vases with crystal beads and flower boxes to give them a strong grip is a good strategy. Pouring the petals on the aisle that follows the wind and the bride is as well a nice detail.

Beach wedding receptions can be set on the shore itself with or without a tent. The decors can be as easy as scattering seashells on the table and putting minimal, random floral elements.

For the beach wedding cake; corals, sand, beach loungers, seashells, seaweeds and pearls made of sugar icing are the usual picks.

The bride’s footwear when it comes to destination weddings has evolved from slip-ons to flip flops and now barefoot sandals which is an exciting feature suitable for sandy scurries.

Leave a box of flip-flops at the entrance on the reception so the guests could pick their size and join the fun.

The sweetness in the sun is always remembered in photos so do not forget to have a good photographer to capture the precious times.

Being married on the beach is not only present pure elation with its natural wonder but also perfect place to celebrate true love.
