Victoria and David Beckham celebrated their 19th anniversary yesterday and the happy couple picked the most perfect location to mark the milestone.

What better place to celebrate your marriage than Paris, the city of love.

The doting couple jetted off to Paris where they enjoyed a romantic dinner and they certainly looked loved-up.

They have been showing a united front since divorce rumours started circulating online last month.

They both shared a beautiful photo from their anniversary dinner that has certainly melted our hearts.

Victoria simply captioned her photo:”19 years!!! X I love u so much x”

David gushed about Victoria on his account, saying: “9 Years WOW … This time 19 years ago I was dressed from head to toe in purple … Happy anniversary to the most amazing wife & mummy … Love You x @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven”

Victoria and David tied the knot in a stunning ceremony at Luttrellstown Castle, located just outside of Dublin.

The fashion designer donned a striking Vera Wang ball gown for her big day, with David opting for an all-white three-piece suit

They were joined by their eldest son Brooklyn, who also wore an all-white outfit to match his parents. How adorable.

They were also joined by over 200 guests, including Victoria’s bandmates Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown.

David and Victoria danced to It Had To Be You for their first dance as a married couple.

Happy anniversary to the Beckhams!

We love a good wedding.

You'll expect to indulge in a sit-down meal and gorge on wedding cake whilst everyone wears their finest attire.

You just can't help but gush over the blushing bride and dapper groom. 

The wedding trends, however, may be an element of the day that you might raise an eyebrow, or you might even copy them for your own big day.

Every year, the Internet seems to churn out weird and wonderful wedding 'must-dos'.

A lot of them catch on like wildfire, and here's are the ones to avoid according to the experts. 

Speaking to Independent.co.uk wedding planners dished-up the most overdone wedding features.

Over-the-top cakes are the statement that towers half way to the ceiling and takes up a whole corner in the room.

However, it's time to channel your inner minimalist as OTT cakes are no longer unique.

Hamish Shephard, the founder of Bridebook.co.uk told the paper:

“The humble iced fruitcake wedding cake is long gone due to Instagram wars for that perfect cake shot.

"From drip cakes and naked cakes, then onto doughnut walls and eight-foot macaroon towers, and recently even Meghan Markle’s 154lb deconstructed lemon and elderflower wedding cake!

 

A post shared by Sarah Kate (@sarahkatephoto) on

"The cake is now an iconic trend that is becoming increasingly competitive," he added.

We don't really care as long as there is cake and we get a slice.

Flower Walls skyrocketed centre stage by Kim Kardashian, however, they've now seen better days as an original feature. 

Robin Weil of weddingplanner.co.uk, reports to the Independent, that “both doughnut walls and flower walls seem to be everywhere!”

On the plus side of the trend dying out, you will save yourself a pretty penny by excluding this floral arrangement. 

Remember the good old days when brides just rocked up to the church in a car? Yeah we've forgotten too – cue the helicopters, donkeys and balloons.

According to Shephard, dramatic bridal entrances are completely overdone as they've "seen it all".

“From a bride literally being ballooned into the ceremony to being walked in by a dressed-up dinosaur, the bride’s entrance has become yet another aspect of the wedding that can be blown up to unimaginable heights.

“We are all for breaking tradition, like the growing trend of brides walking themselves down the aisle (as eight per cent of UK brides did in 2017), but maybe save the dinosaurs for the amusement park,” he said.

It's time to leave some of the girls at home, or at least out of your “bridesmaid army.”

Having more bridesmaids than you can count on one hand has officially been worn out.

Shephard weighed in and said:

“The ‘bridesmaid army’ trend swiftly came over from the US and has taken hold of wedding parties everywhere in the UK. Gone are the days of one or two bridesmaids, or even flower girls, as the more the merrier mentality has been the preferred choice.”

Remember ladies, less is more!

To bring the list to an end, the experts are turning off the light-up letters.

 A firm favourite feature for newlyweds, we for one, won't miss this trend.

They seemed to be at almost every wedding in some form, from congratulations to spelling out the couples name. 

Do you agree with the wedding planners on the overdone trends?

Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor are officially husband and wife.

The former Made in Chelsea stars, who have known each other since they were 16, tied the knot at Whithurst Park in West Sussex over the weekend.

Could not be more excited for this weekend!

Millie recently celebrated her hen party in a luxury countryside location in the Cotswolds.

The bride-to-be enjoyed the raucous weekend with her fellow Made in Chelsea co-stars including Rosie Fortescue and Caggie Dunlop.

Having dated briefly in 2011 while on Made in Chelsea together, they soon split and Millie went on to marry rapper Professor Green (real name Stephen Manderson) from 2013 – 2016.

The couple divorced later that year and Millie rekindled her romance with Hugo soon after.

Hugo got down on one knee last July in Greece, where they were celebrating Millie's 28th birthday. 

 

My one and only

Speaking of his new bride, Hugo told Hello!: “I knew she was The One within about five minutes of us getting back together.”

Millie then added: "But if we’d stayed together when we were younger, we wouldn’t be together now. We had to go away, do our separate things and grow as people. We needed that time apart." 

Huge congratulations to this beautiful couple!

Cardi B revealed she has a HUSBAND.

Rumours had been circulating for the last year that the couple had wed, but yesterday the Queen of rap confirmed the news on Twitter.

The 25-year-old reportedly had a no-frills ceremony when she married her boyfriend and baby's father, Offset.

In a lengthy post, the singer revealed the two have been husband and wife since September 2017. 

The decision to tie the knot came one morning and the rest, as they say, is history. 

"We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with no dress, no makeup and no ring!" she explained.

For all you die heart fans, you may be scratching your head about their very public proposal in October 2017.

Which we now know was AFTER they were reportedly wed.

The mum-to-be addressed Offset getting down on one knee by saying:

"I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!"

They are reportedly having a baby girl.

In true Cardi B style, the queen finished her tweet with:

"Well now since you lil nosey f–ks know at least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock."

Huge congratulations are in order as Grace Mongey aka blogger Faces By Grace has announced her engagement to long-term boyfriend Chris Gernon.

Her fiancé popped the question at her dad’s favourite spot along the pier.

Grace’s sister captured the monumental moment on camera, and the photos are just too cute.

The blogger looks completely shell-shocked in the moving snaps, “He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Actually can’t believe it, still shaking!”

She gushed: “I’m the happiest girl right now and I love you so so much Chris. Thanks for making my dreams come through and for being so thoughtful.”

Grace’s dad passed away from cancer nine years ago so the spot Chris chose is extremely meaningful.

Their daughter Sienna was even there to witness the magical moment.

“I am yours forever and I can’t wait to be your wife! I still can’t quite believe it, you’ve made me happier than I’ve ever been! In such a happy buzz and can’t stop looking at my hand! Is this real?” she shared.

The world was captivated by Doria Ragland’s calm disposition as she sat alone during Meghan and Prince Harry’s wedding ceremony. The mum was praised for being so independent and strong, however, the public couldn’t help but feel for her, as she was the only member of Meghan’s family at the wedding.

Her dad Thomas Markle was slated for missing out on his daughter’s big day, but he has since hit back at the haters.

Thomas Markle has opened up about missing that monumental day in an emotional interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

Shortly before Harry and Meghan tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel, it was revealed that her dad would not be attending the wedding.

He admitted that his daughter was heartbroken when he told her he wouldn’t make it to the wedding.

The dad revealed that he shared the news with his 36-year-old daughter in an emotional phone call just days before the wedding.

“They were disappointed. Meghan cried, I’m sure, and they both said ‘Take care of yourself, we are really worried about you’.”

Thomas said that despite the claims he genuinely wanted to be at the wedding, “I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle.”

He may not have been there to celebrate with his daughter and now son-in-law Harry, but Thomas got to watch the ceremony on tv.

He stated that it was a joy to see his daughter walk down the aisle, adding that she looked beautiful.

“I was very proud. I was very upset that it wasn’t me [walking her down the aisle] but the whole world was watching my daughter. I was very happy about that,” he expressed.

He added: “The unfortunate thing for me now is I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle. That upsets me somewhat.”

The proud dad gushed about his daughter and told the show that her happiness means everything to him.

“As long as they’re happy and they have a great life and have some beautiful children and do good things in the world, I can’t ask for more," he said.

Their cake was a three-tier sponge featuring buttercream frosting with yummy fresh fruit, which was also sourced from a baker in the area. 

The model and reality star tied the knot, three months before their first child together is due.

The power couple of the century is back on tour.

To kick off the special occasion, fans in Cardiff were spoilt with family footage of Beyoncé and Jay-Z renewing their vows.

The envy is real, as those who attended the On The Run II tour on Wednesday saw the couple surrounded by their three children, on the big day.

Adorably, Blue Ivy and Rumi appeared to be the bridesmaids, with Sir Carter owning the role of page boy for their famous parents. 

Haute couture designer, Galia Lahav, confirmed in a press release, that the singer was draped in one of her dresses for the event.

The flawless piece is called the 'Thelma' gown, from the Victorian Affinity collection. 

The Lahav gown is inspired by Queen Victoria's wedding attire from 1840.

True to its time, the dress includes features such as billowing sleeves, sheer panels and heavily-embellished train and corset. 

The music producer and singer originally wed in a ceremony ten years ago.

The superstar debuted a gown her own mother, Tina Lawson had made.

However, Beyoncé openly said she regretted the decision.

In light of the (slightly awkward) situation, Tina told Today:

"She was so sweet to let me do that. She came back later one day and she said, 'You know, when my daughter gets married, I'm going to let her pick out her own dress.' Maybe she wasn't so excited about it at the time, but she's a sweetheart. "

The vow renewals gave the queen of pop another chance to walk down the aisle, but this time in a dress of her choice.

As always, Beyonce looked like she slayed in the gown.

We have some exciting news this morning!

The beautiful Sasha Pieterse, who played the infamous Alison in Pretty Little Liars, married Hudson Sheaffer this weekend.

The ceremony was held in IRELAND, which made me weirdly excited for some reason. 

The People reports that the two were married at the Leslie Estate, a castle in Glaslough.

The stunning bride wore a custom Christian Siriano gown and necklace from XIV Karats – and looked beautiful, of course. 

One observation I did make though? It doesn't look like any of her fellow liars were in attendance. 

Now, I may be wrong, but from my intense stalking of various social media accounts, it would appear as though her co-stars were all elsewhere.

Troian Belassario, who played Spencer Hastings, is in Greece, taking a gorge holiday after attending the Royal Wedding two weeks ago. 

The other ladies are all in the USA currently, it would seem. 

Either way, Sasha and her new husband look gorgeous and happy – and sure, that's all that matters.

One of the most striking things about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding was just how much thought went into every last detail of their big day.

Meghan Markle's veil was embroidered with 53 flowers to represent each Commonwealth country, and her dress' dramatic train is thought to be a nod to Princess Diana.

That attention to detail was even seen in the naming of the tables at the wedding reception. 

Meghan's friend Janina Gavankar recently opened up to Town & Country about her friend's wedding, including this very touching (and pretty hilarious) aspect of the reception.

Janina said that the newlyweds named their tables after foods that are pronounced differently in the US and UK, as a cheeky tribute to their home countries.

"Potato, potato, tomato, tomato, oregano, oregano. It was so sweet. There were so many nods to the beautiful mash-up of two cultures," she said.

We adore this! So many couples use their wedding as a way to express their personalities, histories, and what their future together will look like.

We have to wonder if they chose food names in particular because the couple so enjoy cooking together – yet another example of a personal touch integrated into their wedding day!

As more comes out about their wedding, we can't help but fall in love with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex even more!
