According to OK! magazine, newlyweds Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are planning a second wedding.
The couple was married in September in a ceremony at a Clayoquot Wilderness Resort in Vancouver. The wedding not only shocked the paparazzi, who missed it, but many of their family and friends were unable to attend.
Therefore, the happy twosome is now planning a ceremony in the U.S. in coming months for 150 guests.

When Beyonce married Jay Z in a very private ceremony earlier this year, the event was kept away from the paparazzi. Many thought that the couple would reveal pictures of the ceremony at a later date, but so far it’s not happening.
Many Hollywood couples invite a particular magazine to their wedding for exclusive photos (at a huge cost to the mag, of course). But Beyonce scoffs at the idea.
“Now, they offer crazy money that’s just ridiculous. But in the end, absolutely not,” Beyonce said in a recent interview. “It’s so not worth it. If anything, if you wanna put something out, then put it out, not for money.”
“We worked really hard at keeping it private. I’ve always been this way, and he’s always been this way, so that’s why we complement each other. We always knew that it would be private and quiet, for all the right reasons.”

Rumors have been flying that Ashley Olsen was engaged to Justin Bartha and planning a $1 million wedding. But according to her rep Nicole Caruso, the gossip isn’t true.
“Contrary to several tabloid reports, Ashley Olsen is not engaged to be married,” Caruso told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
No doubt any Olsen wedding will be magnificent whenever it happens. Good luck to Ashley and Justin in their relationship. Maybe wedding bells will ring someday.

Apparently on a spur of the moment whim, Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony renewed their wedding vows in Las Vegas over the weekend. The happy couple renewed their vows early Sunday morning (around 3:15am) in front of two friends at the Caesar Palace Forum Tower Penthouse. A rep for Caesar’s Palace confirmed the story.
Lopez and Anthony were married in 2004 and Jennifer gave birth to their first children – twins named Max and Emme – in February 2008.
With all the celebrity couples on the rocks these days, it’s great to see a couple renewing their commitment to each other. Congratulations to Jennifer and Marc!
Here’s a great picture of the couple from back in May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala.

When Presidential daughter Jenna Bush married Henry Hager this past weekend, I’m not sure if it was the wedding of the year but I did like her Oscar de la Renta gown.
The wedding ceremony, which will held on Saturday, May 10, 2008 on the family ranch in Crawford, Texas was relatively private. About 200 friends and family members watched the couple say their vows in front of a simple limestone cross near a lake.
“Our little girl Jenna married a really good guy, Henry Hager. The wedding was spectacular, all we could have hoped for,” President Bush told reporters.
Jenna’s twin sister, Barbara, was the maid of honor and Henry’s brother Jack, was best man. Though Jenna’s dress was lovely, I didn’t like Barbara’s dress at all. What do you think?

First Daughter Jenna Bush will be walking down the aisle in less than a month at the President’s Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas. Details have started to emerge in recent days about the wedding between the 26-year-old and Henry Hager.
The bride will have 14 attendants, who will wear short chiffon dresses designed by Lela Rosa. Jenna’s twin sister Barbara will serve as the maid of honor.
Reportedly, the outdoor service will begin at 7:30pm, then the 200 guests will enjoy dinner and dancing under a tent.
As for Jenna’s dress, Oscar de la Renta has created a simple beaded gown for her with a small train. The low key affair will take place on May 10th. Though the events won’t be as extravagant as you might expect for a president’s daughter, I’m sure they will be still be quite beautiful.
“I was raised in Texas and it just felt right,” Jenna told the Washignton Post. “It means a lot to Henry and me to be outdoors. We wanted something organic and low key.” She said she considered a White House wedding but decided it wasn’t for her. “That’s not really my personality. There’s a glamour to it, I know, but Henry and I are far less glamorous than the White House.”

According to People.com, Beyoncé and Jay-Z were married on Friday in New York at the hip hop mogul’s Tribeca apartment.
The wedding buzz began on Tuesday when the couple received a marriage license in Scarsdale. A tent was set up on top of Jay-Z’s apartment building and flowers began arriving on Friday afternoon.
Also spotted heading into the apartment were Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams (Beyoncé’s fellow Destiny Child members), Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay.
If they did get married, it was just a small affair for close friends and family. But could they have just been celebrating something else?
Jay-Z recently completed a $150-million deal with Live Nation for all his music-related businesses. That’s certainly reason to celebrate!
I’m not sure if we will ever get all the details on this one. The couple, who have been together for six years, have never even publicly acknowledged their relationship to the press.

Actor Rhys Ifans attempted to ask actress Sienna Miller to marry him last August and December by sending her Welsh text messages and hiding rings. The extravagant methods didn’t work that well with Sienna saying no both times. But her rejections didn’t stop Rhys from asking her a third time.
On her 26th birthday in December, the 39-year-old asked again and this time was a success.
The couple is now reportedly planning a quiet wedding for sometimes this summer.
A source told the UK’s The Daily Mirror,”Rhys is over the moon and finding it hard to keep quiet … he can’t believe she finally said yes.”
The couple, who have been dating for about a year, are currently in Los Angeles where Sienna is filming her new movie GI Joe.
Congrats to the cute couple. I can’t wait to see Sienna’s dress and find out more about their plans.

In the current issue of OK! Magazine, you can find the top ten most beautiful celebrity wedding gowns. From Tori Spelling’s Dolce & Gabbana gown at #10 to Katherine Heigl’s Oscar de la Renta dress at #6, all the way to Vanessa Williams’ beautiful corseted Vera Wang gown at #3, these dresses are all amazing.
But it was Katie Holmes’ silk Armani gown that topped the list at #1.
Also on this video is just a quick glimpse at the Filene’s Basement “Running of the Brides.” This annual sale is held at select Filene’s Basement stores once a year (twice in Boston). During the sale, brides can get designer gowns that are worth up to $10,000 for just $249, $499 and $699.
The brides line up very, very early and when the doors open, they run toward the racks … like the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. In less than a minute the racks are emptied as brides are all over the store in various stages of undress, trying on the gowns.
What mayhem! Looks like fun!

It looks like President Bush has a busy year ahead of him, and not just because it’s his last year in office. People reports that President Bush’s daughter, Jenna Bush, is all set to wed her beau, Henry Hager on May 10.
Jenna’s engagement was announced in August of 2007, but other than that, all plans have been kept under wraps until now.
That’s not to say there’s a whole lot of new information about the ‘I do’ Day other than the locale.
Though her mother, Laura Bush, thinks a White House wedding would be “a lot of fun,” Jenna’s opted for a more private affair that is rumored to take place at the Bushes’ gated, 1,600-acre Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, TX.
Aside from the wedding’s supposed location though, the public doesn’t know much. Looks like we all might be stuck waiting until May for all the juicy details. But hey, look on the bright side: at least that’s only three and a half months away!
