The Pew Research Center has just put out a whole bunch of new data into the world that sheds some interesting light on the marrieds—and non-marrieds—of the world.

Apparently, for the first time in basically forever, not-married people outnumber married people in this country. (They’re guessing it’s because people are a) getting married a little later in life these days, and b) more and more people seem to be living together, and even raising children together, without ever officially tying the knot.)

Well, as suspected, ladies and gentlemen, as of this moment, there are no pictures of Amal Alamuddin in the dress she wore to marry George Clooney this weekend. But shockingly, there are a ton of shots of their gussied-up guests and other fun moments from this past weekend.

{Side note: I have to agree with Jezebel that The Business Woman’s headline about the nuptials is perfect and amazing. End of side note.}

PW Reader Ring: Katie & Franc!

Katie's ring!

Katie’s ring!

The couple: Katie Sieckman and Franc Marmero, Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is a radiant-cut diamond with a French-cut diamond pave band. It’s perfect and I love the thought that went into it.

Franc and I have been together for almost 10 years now, and the last time we were in a jewelry store together was about three years ago. I always thought I wanted a halo, something more antique in style, but when I put it on my hand I just knew it wasn’t me. I also knew I wanted something that was not set too high, and either a plain or diamond band, but didn’t see anything that really made up my mind.

Fast forward a few years, and Franc started visiting jewelers. After going to multiple places, he ended up at Barsky on Jewelers’ Row, working with Nathan Barsky to find just the right ring. He’s an engineer, and nothing less than perfect will ever do, and I have since heard that he was once in there for about five hours designing, planning, asking women in the store to try it on and tell him how it felt, etc. Plus, it took him months to find a diamond he was happy with. (After giving it to me, he couldn’t wait to tell me this whole story and all the details.)

This Bride Crocheted Her $30 Wedding Dress While Commuting On the Bus 

If you are a talented crocheter, then you seriously need to pay attention to this. (And if you’re not—if you’re not even remotely crafty—then just prepare to be seriously impressed. I’m in your camp, by the way.)

This morning on Good Morning America, they did a quick spot on Seattle bride Chi Kreneta, an architect, who decided that she wanted all parts of her wedding—like architecture—to be both beautiful and practical, and set about crocheting her wedding dress during her daily commute on the bus. She normally crocheted scarves and hats, she figured, so why not?

The result is a seriously gorgeous wedding dress that cost her $30—all she needed was a slip to go underneath—that we can’t even get over. The silhouette is perfect! And what a special thing, to have made your own dress. (The bride also says it meant a lot to her because her late grandmother had taught her how to crochet, which is so sweet.) Take a look.
