Urban Bride Chic looks forward to ringing in the new year with the sound of wedding bells. 2017 looks set to upstage the celebrity nuptials from 2016 as the outgoing year failed to really affirm itself as one of the best for watching those A-listers walk down the aisle. So will there be a boom next year in the amount of celebrities tying the knot? Here Urban Bride Chic looks ahead to some of the rumoured weddings which could be doing down in 2017.
Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton will see her younger sister walk down the aisle in 2017 as she gets hitched to hedge fund manager James Matthews. After Kate’s special wedding to Prince Andrew, it will be interesting to see if she serves as Pippa’s maid of honor, although rumors are is that she won’t be in the bridal party at all. The wedding date is set for May 20, 2017 at the St. Mark’s Englefield in Berkshire and there of course will be a royal touch after Middleton extend invitations to the Royal Family, with Princess Charlotte attending as a flower girl, with Prince George a page boy.
No-one could have missed the big sparkling engagement ring that The Room actress Brie Larson flashed on a Saturday Night Live appearance this year. Back in May 2016 she confirmed that her musician beau Alex Greenwald had popped the question. These two have been going strong together since 2013, acknowledging Greenwald then in an acceptance speech as her boyfriend. At the 2016 SAG Awards, she said: “My wonderful boyfriend, Alex – I love you so much.”
Son of Caitlin Jenner, Brody Jenner is set to tie the knot with his love Kaitlynn Carter next year. The couple announced their engagement in July 2016 so there will be another Kaitlynn Jenner in the family. Of course, Brody’s stepsisters (the Kardashians) have gone through lavish weddings before but Brody’s isn’t likely to be as big and as bold, or as headline-grabbing as any of the Kardashian weddings were. Brody’s mother, Linda Thompson has given the seal of approval to the wedding, telling Kaitlynn that “You have brought so much joy into Brody’s and my life.”
Sorry Señoritas, but world superstar soccer player Gareth Bale asked for childhood sweetheart Emma Rhys-Jones’s hand in marriage back in July 2016. The rumors are that Wales’ most famous export will be meeting his bride on the aisle in 2017. Bale pulled off the one-kneed proposal at his 27th birthday celebrations (a $400k island party in Ibiza) this year. Bale, who plays for Spanish giants Real Madrid and is one of the most recognizable faces in the world of soccer and it has been rumored that the wedding may be held in New York so that Rhys-Jones’s father could attend.
Much to the dismay of the world’s single-male population, Kate Upton is set to tie the knot next year to Major League Baseball player Justin Verlander. It is rumored that Upton has been working hard to get into “ridiculous” shape for her wedding which is likely to be something of a spectacle, with a rumored $1.5million spent alone on her engagement ring designed by Anita Ko. This could be the most eye-catching celebrity wedding of 2017.
Will they, won’t they? Other Celebrity Wedding Rumours for 2017
Rosie After five years of dating, supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and action-movie actor Jason Statham could be looking forward to a 2017 wedding. Statham, the star of movies like Spy, The Mechanic and Fast & Furious announced the engagement to former Victoria’s Secret model Rosie in January 2016 through his rep. Then there were rumours that they had secretly married, but that remains unconfirmed. So will we see the two tying the knot in 2017? They seem to have remained a strong couple despite a contrast in his working class background and her coming from a line of barons and despite the 20 year age difference between the two as well.
Speaking of age differences here is an even bigger one. You won’t hear many people saying that they enjoyed a trip to the dentist, but that is where Dragon’s Den star Duncan Bannatyne met his partner Nigora Whitehorn. Bannatyne, 67 could be tying the knot with the 36-year-old in the new year. British Olympian diver Tom Daley is set to tie the knot with American screenwriter Dustin Lance-Black after their long engagement from 2015. The two are set to get married in the UK despite all of Lance-Blacks family residing in America.
There has been confusion over whether or not Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx got married this year or not. Nothing has been been confirmed in this one, but that was supposed to have happened in the summer in a secret affair. However, towards the end of the year another report came out that Foxx and Holmes (who have apparently been dating for years) wanted to wed before the close of 2016 but there were delays about Tom Cruise’s stance on letting his daughter Suri be adopted by Foxx.
