Gentle Reader: Never mind whose wedding it is. Miss Manners’ advice is not to make any wedding plans for this couple that cannot be canceled without penalty.

Dear Miss Manners: On a trip visiting relatives, one thing baffled me. They do not put any garbage bags in their bathroom garbage cans.

But nothing turns a nice girl into a Bridezilla faster than saying, “I do.”

We needed professional help! So we checked in with Colin Cowie, wedding planner to the stars.

Adele planning Vegas wedding
News from Times of India:

Adele is reportedly planning to marry her partner, Simon Konecki, in Las Vegas.

The British singing sensation has been romancing Konecki for several months and has been flaunting a band on her ring finger lately, sparking rumours that they are already engaged.

The buzz has it that the 23-year-old singer has already started making wedding plans and would apparently love to jet to the US to tie the knot.

“They can hardly bare to be apart, and have already talked about spending the rest of their lives together. Adele’s never been one for big, over-the-top celebrations, so she’s told Simon she’d rather elope,” quoted a source as telling Look magazine.

“They’d gather about 20 of their close friends and family and go to Las Vegas for the ceremony. Then she and Simon would disappear to Memphis – Adele’s a big Elvis fan – for a romantic honeymoon,” the source added.

The pair would then host a lavish party back in the UK for their friends and family.
