Aspiring Baby Jedi Seeks Special Permission From George Lucas to Marry, Gets It Granted (Video)

Little peanut Colin very much wants to become a Jedi when he grew up—but bless his sweet lil heart, he also wants to get married!

Because Jedis, charged with the very serious business of keeping the peace, are not allowed to marry, concerned and enterprising little Colin whipped off a letter to George Lucas, requesting special permission to also be allowed to get married when he hopefully becomes a Jedi one day.

Dear George Lucas,

I don’t like that a Jedi cannot get married. I want to get married without becoming a Sith. Please change the rule. P.S. I want to come to Skywalker Ranch please.

Love Colin

Welp, he got it. And he is pumped.

Way to fight for what you want, Colin! You’re going to make an excellent Jedi husband one day.

Video: Watch This Bride Totally Rock Metallica On the Drums at Her Wedding 

We’ve seen some brides do some pretty crazy-cool—and surprise—things at their weddings: Rap. Dance. You know, stuff like that.

But I can’t say we’ve ever seen a bride—in full regalia, no less—plop down behind a drum set and completely slay some metal. But here is this totally bad-ass, beautiful bride doing just that. Please enjoy Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” courtesy of her awesomeness:

Impressive, yes?

Did you bust out with a surprise performance of any kind for your guests at your wedding? If so, do tell!

PW Reader Ring: Cat & Joe!

Cat's ring!

Cat’s ring!

The couple: Cat McQuail and Joe Hauschildt from Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is a pear-shaped solitaire diamond set in white-gold prongs on a yellow-gold band. My fiancé picked it out on his own, but called one of my good friends right before he bought it to confirm he was making the right choice.

While we had talked about rings in the past, we had never been shopping together and my Pinterest “Put a Ring On It” pinboard was private, so there’s no way he could have seen my ring pins—but luckily for me, his selection mirrored the rings I pinned on my secret board! As a recent law school grad, he likes to do his due diligence, so he did a lot of research and then purchased the ring online.

This Couple’s Wes Anderson-Inspired Save-the-Date Video Is Everything

If you are as big a Wes Anderson movie person as I, reader (Royal Tenenbaums is just such perfection), you are going to die over this couple’s save-the-date video.

It’s a very Wes Anderson-y announcement for their upcoming nuptials in the Catskills, and you will want to watch it more than once. (Also: kinda obsessed with their hashtag.)

Wes Anderson Inspired Save The Date Video: Hell Yes Jon & Jess from Jon Sukarangsan on Vimeo.

Check out Buzzfeed for lots of great GIFs and stills of the video, and don’t feel bad if you fully plan on stealing their idea.

Listen Here: This Playlist Is Perfect for Your Bridal Bootcamp Workouts—and for Your Wedding Reception

So Jon Ardito over at Philly’s JAE Entertainment sent us this Bridal Bootcamp playlist, which he put together using songs from the company’s bands’ and DJs’ playlists that get people dancing at wedding receptions—and that also make for great pump-you-up workout songs.

We thought it was pretty great as far as champagne-soaked dancing goes (you know, our area of expertise), but just to be sure it met with approval for working up a sweat, we checked in with our buds over at Be Well Philly, since they are kind of the experts around here in workout playlists.

This Awesome Single Chick Shows How to Rock the Photo Booth When You Don’t Have a Date to a Wedding

I wish I had been at this wedding to have a drink with this girl. For although she did not have a designated person (i.e., a date) with whom to hop in the photo booth and do all the requisite photo booth poses, she hopped in that damn photo booth anyway and posed away:

We love this girl. Image via Imgur.

She sent a shot of the excellent result to her brother, who then posted it on Reddit, that we now all might enjoy learning the proper way to go about being at a wedding without a date. Though I’m not sure anyone will be able to do that better than her.

Something tells us she’ll have a date at the next wedding she attends.
