Wedding Newsfeed of the Day

Hilarious. As I get closer to the "big day" (still more than 5 months away, mind you), it seems that my email address gets sold and resold and resold to vendors and other wedding-related people, including this one website that sent me the Celebrity Weddings Blog, which has such great tidbits as Britney's Plans for a Third Husband, "Hills" Stars Heidi and Spencer Marriage Details Revealed! (those quotes are in the wrong place, if you ask me), and Playmate Kendra Wilkinson Engaged -- Plan a Bunny-Inpsired (sic) Bachelorette Party.

Here's my personal favorite headline from the site. Seriously. Just man up and call it off!

Groom Gets Cold Feet and Sets Venue on Fire

Apparently last week, 39-year-old Japanese groom-to-be Tatsuhiko Kawata set fire to his wedding venue in order to get out of the ceremony. Pause for reaction… say what!?! In the early morning hours, the office worker started a blaze at a hotel in Yamanashi Prefecture (90 minutes outside of Tokyo) where he was to marry his fiancĂ© later that day. He didn’t do as much damage as he’d hoped. The fire was quickly contained, guests staying at the hotel were evacuated, and there were no injuries reported. The couple had planned to wed in front of 80 of their closest friends and family members. Kawata wasn’t arrested until he suddenly called off the wedding and started behaving in a suspicious manner. He later confessed to police. “I thought if I set a fire I wouldn’t have to go through with the wedding,” he’s said to have told police. Some reports are saying he wanted out because he was still secretly married to another woman, but that has not been confirmed. Either way, there are no words for how wrong this groom-gone-bad’s actions were. Shameful! Thoughts, ladies?
