The Weddingsphere - October 27th Weekly Roundup

While news of Tom and Katie's Italian wedding date has been set for Nov. 18th, this week we saw the ugly side of getting married as the bitter divorce of Paul McCartney and Heather Mills is turning into one of the most nasty celebrity breakups. From allegations of abuse and extortion to suing newspapers over news leaks, this divorce is teaching us a lot about what can happen when you don't sign a prenup. In hindsight, anyone who is planning to tie the knot can definitely learn a lot from this divorce and consider the benefits of having a prenup especially if both of you have a lot to lose should things go sour. It's a personal issue, so this may or may not be for everyone. Nevertheless, if you know someone who seemingly appears to be rushing into marriage, a prenup may save them a lot of heartache and sorrow - to the wallet. Enough serious talk, though, let's get back to the week in the weddingsphere:

A Vase that Made News for Nicole Kidman

When you're a celebrity, anything is fair game even when buying your ex-husband a wedding gift. She was seen shopping at Neiman Marcus for a $2800 Baccarat crystal vase. What a thoughtful gesture! Would you buy your ex a wedding gift? What if you got invited to their wedding, would you go?

The picture of the week is a cute little (ice cream) snowman made by White House Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois. What a cutie! It'll make a great dessert for a winter wedding - so inspirational.
