36-year-old Nadine Schweigert from Fargo, North Dakota, got married last month. She was dressed in a peacock blue satin dress and carried a bouquet of white roses. There was also a lovely white wedding cake covered in peacock blue fondant. But if you paid attention, you probably noticed there was no mention of a groom. It's not that he didn't show up, it's just that there wasn't a groom to begin with. Nadine just happened to marry herself. So when Nadine stood up in front of the 45 guests at her wedding, she took the following vow: "I, Nadine promise to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self." Later in the ceremony, she presented herself with a ring. When it was time for the traditional first kiss, she asked guests to blow kisses to the whole world. Soon after the ceremony, Nadine even took off on a honeymoon at New Orleans, all by herself, of course. Nadine says that after three children and a divorce, she spent several years just waiting for someone to come along and make her happy. She has struggled for years with self-acceptance, attending group therapy in an attempt to feel better. One day, when a friend said to her, "Why do you need someone to marry you to be happy? Marry yourself," the idea took root in Nadine's mind.

A British couple were delighted to welcome a special guest to their wedding--Queen Elizabeth II! Upon learning that the Queen had an event for her Diamond Jubilee celebration on the same day at Manchester Town Hall, Frances and John Canning jokingly wrote to Buckingham Palace to invite her to their nuptials. To their surprise and delight, The Queen and Prince Philip altered their schedule just to wish the newlyweds good luck!

I've always had my suspicions, but now they're confirmed: The Queen just can't resist a party!
