Hilary Duff’s “dream wedding” in OK! Magazine

I won’t buy a celebrity magazine for random wedding or baby pictures usually, but I love to look at my “friend’s” photos on Facebook. It’s not just wedding photos, I love baby pictures, showers, drunken college parties and vacation photos. I don’t know most of these people as I just have one Facebook account for Celebitchy. (Add me as a friend and I’ll check out yours. The other day I was checking out someone’s birthday vacation to Chicago, where she caught a Cubs game and took in the sights. I’m mentioning it to see if she reads this story.)

Anyway I knew when we saw just those blurry faraway photos of Hilary Duff’s wedding to hockey player Mike Comrie that she must have optioned the photos to a celebrity outlet. OK! Magazine has them, and Hilary looks really lovely on the cover. (If not a little ‘toxed and/or Photoshopped.) The cover promises to have “exclusive photos” and an interview with Hilary. I’ll buy the exclusive photos part, but I’m thinking the interview isn’t that extensive. Maybe I’m just so used to OK!’s bait and switch covers that I’m having trouble giving them props for an exclusive piece that they surely paid good money for. Here’s more, from E!, which has more of the story than OK! does on their site:

Hilary Duff’s big day began all wrong, but it certainly didn’t end that way.

“I started my day with a chipped tooth!” she reveals in the new issue of OK! “My wedding planner snuck me out to the dentist! Thank goodness it was fixed within the hour.”

Fortunately, everything else went smoothly for the 22-year-old bride as she tied the knot with Mike Comrie last weekend in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Walking down the aisle in front of about 100 guests, Duff wore a Vera Wang gown with an organza mermaid look that was adorned with giant blossoms while carrying a bouquet of blush dahlias.

“There are not even words to describe it,” says the starlet about her dress. “It’s exactly what I imagined, plus 10 times better.”

Duff says she also abided by the tradition of wearing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

“I wore blue underwear and borrowed all of the jewelry [from Van Cleef & Arpels], and the something old was my great-grandmother’s cameo, which I wore on the inside of my dress. The dress itself was new.”

Upon exchanging vows, the newly married couple joined their loved ones under a muslin tent for the reception, which, according to Duff, featured truffled corn ravioli, pepper-crusted rib-eye steak and miso-glazed black cod, as well as a dessert station that included ice cream sandwiches with hot fudge dipping sauce.

That must have freaked Hilary out to no end to have chipped a tooth on her wedding day! Thank goodness she was able to get it fixed right away and I wonder if it was even noticeable. Also, I love food “stations” at weddings! I once went to a wedding with different chinese food stations ahead of, unbeknownst to me, the main meal. I walked around and filled up and then we sat down for a few courses.

OK! has two photo sneak peeks of Hilary’s wedding on their site, a picture of the reception set up and a photo of her shoes overlaid with a couple of her diamond accessories. The reception looks gorgeous, with multiple understated chandeliers, lots of draped fabric, and pink and yellow rose bouquets. It must have been such a special day. I wish she was my friend on Facebook so I could just see the pictures there and look at all her friends’ comments on how drunk they got.

There’s a little more gossip on Hilary. US Weekly reports that she had a prenup with her new husband, who is a multi-millionaire hockey player in his own right and comes from a wealthy family with a furniture empire. An insider says “It was a totally amicable agreement. They love each other very much and knew this was just a technicality.” That was smart, and good for them. People get married thinking it’s going to last forever, but the truth is that we all have about 50/50 odds – maybe a little better but it’s smart to be prepared.

  2. bite me says:

    divorce in five years

  3. guesty says:

    yawn on hil & mikey.

  4. Rachel says:

    She’s only 22?! Not that she looks older, I just thought she was older. That’s really young to be married.

  5. Sumodo1 says:

    She had better get used to being a hockey widow, because it’s a long-ass season. Same with Carrie Underwood. And, wait til he gets a puck in the teeth! She’ll love her toothless groom in THAT look! 1 year max.

  6. Me says:

    IF they have kids they’ll look like Rumor WIllis.

  7. AbbeyRoad says:

    They look really happy, and I wish them all the best.

  8. kelbear says:

    Lmao @Me

  9. Katie says:

    Good to know Comrie comes from money, because last I heard he still has no contract for the upcoming season, and hockey players don’t make that much compared to other atheletes in America. His last contract I think was only 1.something mil. I sort of figured, of course he proposed when he realized his hockey prospects are great.

  10. aenflex says:

    The prenup and not letting it be a dealbreaker was very mature and makes me respect them both.

  11. Tia C says:


  12. Cam says:

    aw, happy for them! :).

    and btw, you can check my photos on facebook if you want haha

  13. serena says:

    I don’t like the shoes. However why did she have all that hurry to marry? She’s so young, wtf!

  14. Green Is Good says:

    The Pre-Nup thing, very practical. They both have their own money and other material assets acquired before their marriage.

    “the something old was my great-grandmother’s cameo, which I wore on the inside of my dress.”

    That’s sweet.

  15. TQB says:

    The shoes are hideous, also I call BS on referring to your loaner jewelry that you got because Van Cleef knew you’d be selling the pics to a tabloid as the “something borrowed.”

  16. Bea says:

    I’m pretty sure all the Canadians reading this article are snickering at the line about Mike Comrie “com[ing] from a wealthy family with a furniture empire.” His family owns The Brick, a chain of stores that sells cheap ass particle board furniture and is legendary for bad customer service. Hehehe. Hope Hillary didn’t get store credit in lieu of wedding presents.

  17. Rachel says:

    Anyone else remember the Hilary Duff/Lindsay Lohan feud? Hilary gets married while Lindsay is in jail/rehab. That’s karma for you right there.

  18. Chickadees4me says:

    @ Bea you’re right LOL its not a top quality furniture store thats for sure

  19. Jeri says:

    I hope they’ll be happy. Hillarie has worked hard and led a scandel free existence (except for Lindsay of course) and deserves happiness.

  20. chasingadalia says:

    Wait, she’s all of a year older than me? That can’t be right. I grew up on Lizzie Maguire and always thought she was so much older then…

  21. Truthzbetta says:

    Why is she always chipping her teeth? Same excuse she had for why she wore the horse veneers that had to be sawed down.

    She malnourished? A vampire? Clumsy? Does she do hard ass stunts in Salt-like action movies so super secret the public never knows about them?

    Or maybe they’re risque love wounds that earned her that big wedding rock.

  22. Confuzzle says:

    22? Dumbass.

    The husband looks like a tree stump.

  23. slymm27 says:

    strange face that man has……plus they willb divorced in less than three years. why do all these people bother getting married????? the man will surely cheat, and the woman will get bored… WTF?????

  24. Lisa Turtle says:

    Actually these two have less than 50/50 odds. Statistically speaking, Hillary did not go to college and is 22 years old. Uneducated spouses, and marrying younger than 25 are both factors that multiply your chances of divorce. Her odds of divorce are Very Very High. Probably closer to a 75% chance.

  25. Yasmine says:

    Bahahahahahaha!! The Brick totally sells cheap-ass furniture. But who’s goin there these days when you’ve got IKEA? And woah man, those teeth are freakin’ me out. I give their teeth more time than the marriage. Good luck suckers!

  26. Tuatara says:

    Not liking the wedding hair. Maybe down would have been nicer.

  27. DeE says:

    The hubby looks kinda like that boy Levi Johnston or something or the other. I loved Hillary Duff on Nickelodeon. Hope they be good to one another.

  28. lolo says:

    Ooh :’D I love this. I want to get married as well!

  29. that buck toothed bunny says:

    another chipped tooth? that’s supposedly the reason she got those horse veneers. anyway, i give it 7 years.
