If you're dying to see photos of Coco Rocha's recent wedding in France, join the club. Despite some serious googling, there are just no pictures to be had. We've been waiting patiently for her grand unveiling (apparently it's going to be something special), but we simply can't stay stand the suspense any longer.


Here are the few details we have managed to dig up from various sources including various mags and news outlets, Coco's own twitpic account & official facebook page, both her (@Oh_So_Coco) and her new husband James' (@jamesconran) twitter accounts and more. Coco, if you're reading this - please send us some deets - we can't wait any longer!

Invites: A costly quandary


A lot of brides don't even consider the price of their invitations when planning a budget friendly wedding. I mean, they're kinda necessary and they're paper... so they can't be that much, can they?
