Woman Received 65 Marriage Proposals And Rejected Them All!

(PCM) Many women would consider themselves lucky to receive just one special marriage proposal in a lifetime, but could you image receiving sixty-five? And then turning them all down! This is the story of Chicago socialite Mary Landon Baker, whose life seems like a TV movie waiting to happen. Landon reportedly received sixty-five marriage proposals during her lifetime and rejected each and every one of them.

Baker’s story was recently profiled by the New York Times and they claim that Baker first made her way to the headlines when she very publicly left her then fiance Allister McCormick at the altar. She was then labeled the “shy bride” by newspapers and reporters throughout the country, as shyness was the only diagnosis they could come up with to comprehend why Baker would walk away from marrying McCormick.

Of course in the years that followed her failed engagement to McCormick Baker’s behavior certainly didn’t border on shy. The Times reports that she was linked to men on multiple continents including an English Lord,an Irish prince, a well-to-do Spaniard, a Yugoslav diplomat, and the actor Barry Baxter.  Baker was referred to as a “dollar princess” a title which refers an heiress whose wealth makes her an eligible bachelorette all over the world.

It is said that when Baker passed away in 1961 at the age of 61 she had received at least sixty-five marriage proposals in the course of her lifetime from various suitors all over the globe. Baker’s life appears to be a great party where she was always the guest of honor. According to the Times she enjoyed attending pirate parties, tango-dancing with Romanian prices and sparkling, shiny gowns. When asked by reporters why his daughter refused to marry, Baker’s father financier Albert Baker replied that he daughter was having too delectable a time playing the field to want to settle down.

Baker herself told reporters, “I did not marry because I did not meet the right man at the right place at the right time.” She also went on to reveal, “I have never been in love”.  This seems very sad in a way, as despite the number of suitors throwing themselves at Baker, could they have been more in love with her money rather than her as a person. This definitely appears to be the case and it is truly a shame that Baker may have never gotten the chance to experience the feeling of true love in her lifetime, either than or she truly, truly valued her freedom!

Hot New Wedding Trend Has Couples Faking The Cake

(PCM) Everyone knows that weddings can be tremendously expensive endeavors and one of the more costly items can be a fancy and elaborately decorated wedding cake. Some couples have reported spending upwards of $1,000 to $1,500 on their wedding cakes, however a hot new wedding trend involving cakes has quickly been gaining some steam.

Many couples are opting to “fake the cake” and ordering a “cake” that appears to be beautifully decorated with both icing and fondant, however the inside is nothing more than tiered and layers styrofoam. These styrofoam creations can be decorated using the very same materials such as icing and fondant and can be as elaborately decorated as the couple chooses, the only major difference is these cakes are certainly not edible and can literally save the couple thousands of dollars, as they only retail for about half the cost of a regular wedding cake.

Many may be wondering how these “fake cakes” work when dealing with the whole cake cutting ceremony and the solution is quite simple. Many of the “fake cakes” come with a pre-cut knife slit that allows the couple to pretend to cut the cake and for the cake in the face smashing picture another piece of pre-cut cake is brought out from the kitchen. Another way that it can be faked is to have only the top tier of the creation be made of real cake which can be cut and enjoyed by the couple.

We all know that after the cake cutting ceremony the cake is rushed off into the kitchen and cut down for the guests to enjoy. They will never know the difference if a less expensive sheet cake is cut down in the back and served as the popular wedding dessert. “Fake cakes” work for events other than weddings as well. They are often ordered for bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteen party’s and corporate events. It is a wonderful cost saver and no one can ever tell the difference. No you can have the cake of your dreams, but not necessarily eat it too!

New Website Allows You To Design Your Wedding Dress Online And Try It On At Home

floravere1

(PCM) Shopping for a wedding dress can be one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding. You have to make appointments at several shops, deal with condescending employees and the judgmental opinions of your family and close friends. The entire process can be incredibly overwhelming.

You can now throw all that stress out the window with the new website Floravere, which allows you to design your own wedding dress from the privacy of your own home and then have samples sent to you to try on for the perfect fit. Only downside we noticed is that the samples are limited to XS/S and M/L, completely leaving out any plus-size brides. Perhaps they should look into expanding their sample sizes to include more women.

The website has seven different silhouettes available and you can choose any three styles and have them sent to your home to try on for the price of $45. Once you find a style that you like, you can than customize that particular dress in which ever way you choose. You can add straps, a longer train, gemstones and more.

Floravere boasts the fact that all of their wedding dress designs cost less than $4,000 and if you decide to buy the dress from them, the $45 price for the samples is deducted from the final price of the dress. You do have to plan ahead a bit with Floravere because due to the fact that each dress is custom made they can take about four months to complete.

It take some brides that long to decide on dress in the first place, so the wait time should really not be much of a problem, so long as she doesn’t turn into Bridezilla in the meantime!

Groom Files For Divorce Two Hours After Wedding Because Bride Won’t Stop Snapchatting!

snapchat-wedding2

(PCM) Once again proving that social media is taking over our lives, a Saudi groom filed for divorce a mere two hours after his wedding ceremony because his bride would not take a break from Snapchatting.

It seems that the groom had placed a stipulation in their marriage contract where the bride agreed to not share any photos from the wedding on Snapchat or any other social media networks. Why the groom had a problem with his is beyond us, but it sounds as if the bride may have had a serious social media addiction, either that or the groom was that controlling.

Either way, the bride broke the contract about two hours after the ceremony by posting photos of the wedding to share with her girlfriends on Snapchat. The groom was having none of that and immediately began the divorce proceedings to cancel the marriage contract and obligations.

The bride’s brother spoke with Metro in the UK and said, “There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiancé that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram, or Twitter to post or send her pictures. It was included in the marriage contract and became binding. Regretfully, my sister did not honor the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce.”

Something tells us that this split is probably for the best, but either way social media is still getting in the way of actual human interactions these days. There needs to be a happy medium. Perhaps this bride will find new love, as there are plenty of dating apps out there and let’s hope the groom can find a way to some sort of compromise the next time around, if there is one!

Hilarious Wedding RSVP Offers Up A Child As An Entree

RSVP-card

(PCM) Boy, do we love finding these gems via Reddit! A mistakenly printed wedding RSVP card is making viral waves as it hilariously offers up a child as one of the entree choices for an upcoming wedding.

Right underneath the “will attend” or “will not attend” line, food choices are listed that include “beef”, “pork”, or “child (12 and under)”. So, unless one is a cannibal of sorts, option number three probably wouldn’t be your best choice!

The Reddit poster wrote “I’ll have the 10 year old, please, medium rare…”

What makes this even more comical is that the bottom of the RSVP requests that guest list any dietary restrictions. We can only imagine that the responses were hilarious!
