Songbird Kelly Clarkson called off the big wedding she and her fiance were planning this October, because she was 'so overwhelmed' and 'so over' planning it... But for most couples, it's simply not possible. So if you've got to knuckle down and get it done, how do you manage to not hate your own wedding?
With the average wedding costing a staggering £20,000 by some estimates, is it any wonder that non-celebrity couples are also going back to basics? With more of us pursuing careers and families at the same time as planning a wedding, splashing out for just one day feels like an unaffordable and unnecessary luxury.
Even with our insatiable appetite for celebrity gossip growing, it still amazes me that we believe what we read. We discuss the scandals of the rich and famous, passing commentary and judgements on those that are strangers to us as if we know them. Maybe that's why we mourn their deaths with such emotion.
