Celebrity weddings: TMI or not enough?

weddingImage Credit: Andrea Bricco/Workbook Stock/Getty ImagesE! Online is reporting that The Office’s John Krasinski and Young Victoria‘s Emily Blunt will walk down the aisle “in about a month.” The source doesn’t know a lot of the major details — like the location — but it seems that when it comes to celebrity wedding news, every single detail is worthy of a headline.

Clearly, however, people are interested in the nitty-gritties. How else can you explain how much I know about Carrie Underwood’s upcoming nuptials? Ready for this? Okay: Underwood, who became engaged to hockey player Mike Fisher last December, will have cupcakes instead of wedding cake at the reception and her dog will serve as the ring bearer, but her dress is still in the beginning stages of design. Phew! Last year, I didn’t even know this much about one of my oldest friend’s weddings, and I was a bridesmaid.

I get sucked into Platinum Weddings and My Fair Wedding marathons more often than I care to admit. I can see why people are interested in the details, especially if they’re a fan or a bride-to-be. But we’re not talking about weddings of Diana and Charles proportions; a new heir to the throne won’t be coming out of any of these unions, no matter how much we love Jim Halpert. Is there really a reason why we can’t wait until after the wedding to find out that Carrie’s on Team Cupcake?

What do you think PopWatchers? Do you care about every single detail of a celeb wedding leading up to the big day, or is it information overload? Is there any celebrity wedding you were truly excited for?

    If we cared, we would go read E! Online.

    ^^^ Crispy speaks the truth. EW, we don’t care about celebrities for the sake of them being celebrities.

    I don’t know what celebs are supposed to do when they get asked these questions. Like the Carrie details came out because a radio DJ or People magazine asked her questions and then breathlessly wrote up articles with her answers. Was she not supposed to answer those questions? Or is it smarter to just answer a few questions and keep the big details out of the press? I’d say the latter is smarter for people like Emily Blunt and Carrie Underwood.

    It’s TMI for me. I enjoy a juicy piece of gossip every now and again, but much like celebrity kids, this is just one obsession I don’t get. I view things like weddings, children and etc as off limits and don’t care to know those details about celebs much less the D-list reality stars who tend to be ones on the covers of trash mags every week recounting every detail of their lives. It’s all a bit TMI for me, really.

    I am a huge fan of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski and I am interested in their wedding. However, they seem like they really want to guard their privacy (smart) so I hope they are able to.
