Madonna Selects White For Wedding
The first details of Madonna's upcoming wedding emerged last night with the news the bride will wear white and the groom will wear a skirt!
According to The New York Post, the Material Mom and boyfriend Guy Ritchie will tie the knot in a star-studded $1.5 million ceremony three days before Christmas, London's Sun newspaper said.
The nuptials will take place at the historic Dornoch Cathedral in northeast Scotland.
The tiny Gothic church was consecrated in 1239, destroyed by fire during the 16th-century clan wars and then rebuilt in the 16th and 19th centuries.
After they say "I do," the lovebirds will hold a gala reception at nearby Skibo Castle, which newlywed Catherine Zeta-Jones has called "the most romantic place on Earth."
The 250-year-old castle, once owned by Andrew Carnegie, is located on 7,000 acres in the Scottish highlands.
The 42-year-old pop goddess will wear a gown designed by Paul McCartney's daughter Stella, who has become one of the most sought-after dressmakers in fashion.
Ritchie, 32, is being fitted for a traditional Scottish kilt, which will come below the knee and be worn with gray socks, the newspaper said.
Madonna's daughter Lourdes, 4, is expected to be a bridesmaid at the services.
And the couple is considering having their four-month-old son, Rocco, christened at the same time.
The couple are said to be sending out wedding invitations to their families and close friends this week. The guest list is expected to top 200 people.
On Tuesday, Madonna wowed a celebrity-packed audience in London at her first concert in England in seven years.
She wore a tight T-shirt emblazoned with the names of her two kids, Rocco on the front and Lola, her pet name for Lourdes, on the back.
The 3,500 fans who jammed Brixton Academy included Mick Jagger, Spice Girl Mel C, Kate Moss and Ewan McGregor.
The crowd exploded as Madonna arrived on stage on a white truck and launched into Impressive Instant, from her album Music, flanked by dancers in bondage.
As she began Runaway Lover she jumped into the crowd and was led by bouncers to a second stage decorated with hay bales.
"Come on London," she cried.
She then premiered her new single Don't Tell Me and said to the throng: "I'm going to dedicate this song to all the pop bitches out there - including me."
She also did one of her first hits, Holiday. – Albawaba.com.
