Even though President Barack Obama will be participating in the first presidential debate Wednesday night against Republican nominee Mitt Romney, Obama has something else to celebrate–his 20th wedding anniversary with his wife, Michelle. On Oct. 3, 1992, Barack and Michelle Obama married at Trinity United in Chicago with around 200 of their closest family and friends, according to People.
“Twenty years ago today, I married the love of my life and my best friend,” Obama tweeted. “Happy anniversary, Michelle!” In response, Michelle tweeted back, “Happy 20th anniversary, Barack. Thank you for being an incredible partner, friend and father every day. I love you!”
On her wedding day, Michelle wore an off-the-shoulder, long-sleeved white gown. But if her wedding were today, what kind of dress would she wear? Here’s what we know: Michelle likes to make a statement with bold colors and body-conscious cuts that emphasize her figure. Maybe she would wear an empire, one-shoulder tulle gown, similar to what she wore to the presidential inauguration in 2010. Or maybe she would wear a short-sleeved, tea-length dress with a birdcage veil. Congrats Barack and Michelle!

Every detail of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ Sept. 9 wedding has been kept a secret, except for the venue and dress. Here’s what we know: According to Martha Stewart Weddings, Lively wore an off-white Marchesa dress with a silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery. From these details, the dresses pictured above could be a cross between what she walked down the aisle in.

What’s an “unplugged” wedding? This is when a couple asks their guests to turn off all electronic devices, including, cellphones, smart phones and cameras, during their ceremony and reception.
Why do this? Having an “unplugged” wedding allows for the professional photographers and videographers to do their job and allows for your guests to be more present and not be distracted by uploading their own photographs to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were married Sept. 9 at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, S.C. Its rustic charm and lush gardens attracted the pair to this venue, but what’s most surprising of all is that they managed to keep their nuptials a secret and so did their planners at Martha Stewart Weddings! It may also look familiar because it was used in the 2004 film “The Notebook” as the summer home of Allie (Rachel McAdams).
