If only you had this research in college, amiright?

New numbers in a recent study showed that 32 percent of the marriages being looked at had begun with what one might call a hookup. (Or at least, it had begun with what the now-married people vaguely refer to as a hookup, which we can only assume means it was not an overly meaningful first date during which the stars aligned and they Lady-and-the-Tramped some spaghetti as fireworks went off in the background.)

Several people sent me this link over the weekend, and I have to say, it did not disappoint.

Who among us has not hunted down fast food after a few too many? And who of us has not gone about that mission in questionable ways? Brides are not immune to such needs, guys—which is why this fabulous girl found herself trying to score some good ole Taco Bell after the conclusion of her wedding reception.

PW Reader Ring: Lindsay & Andy!

Lindsay's ring!

Lindsay’s ring!

The couple: Lindsay Docherty and Andy Rachlin, from Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is a sparkling round diamond in a low-profile halo setting on a thin band of white gold with diamonds running down the sides.

It’s true that ideally, your wedding dress will be the ultimate reflection of your personal style. Chances are that if you’re a really traditional, classic girl, you won’t have, say, an underlay of fire-engine red tulle sticking out from underneath your knee-length dress—and that if your eccentric outfits are your calling card, you won’t select a strapless, A-line wedding gown with nary an embellishment.

So while it’s not like you will fit perfectly into any one of these particular boxes, of course, this is kinda fun: a little breakdown of what the style of your wedding dress says about your personality.

Video: It’s Worth Getting Frozen’s “Let It Go” Stuck In Your Head to Enjoy This Best Man’s Sung Wedding Toast 

Listen, I was hesitant to watch this, too, since I feel like I just cleared this damn song (which, I mean, I happen to actually enjoy—it’s a pretty stinking cute movie) out of my head … But I was curious.

A best man named Joey Boyes at a recent English wedding decided, for reasons unknown, to set his best man speech to the tune of Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” which he managed to do while still hitting all of the required best man-speech points: how much he loves the groom, how fab the couple is together, he references the groom’s late father, and tells a few funny stories.

We’re impressed. And okay with humming this for the rest of today. If you want to get something else stuck in your head, watch this.
