    You're engaged -- congratulations! And you can't wait to share your exciting news with everyone. But how? With a hilariously brilliant video, or a beautifully engraved announcement, or writing it in the sky with an airplane? There are so many creative possibilities! Or you could just post a photo of your engagement ring on Facebook -- because that's what everyone's dying to see. 

    But before you make the big announcement, there's one thing you need to do. We talked with two wedding experts about the best way to announce your engagement, and they both gave the same advice for their number-one tip. This, ladies, is the most important thing you need to do when you announce your engagement.

    If my sister's wedding has taught me anything, it's that IF I ever get married (yes, 'if'), I am going to do it at City Hall, invite no guests, and then go eat a sub afterward to celebrate. Because big weddings? They are insane. And when there are TWO of them for the same happy couple? They are even nuttier.

    Don't get me wrong! I'm my sister's maid of honor and I've had a blast doing it. But my sister's soon-to-be-in-laws are numerous and they alllll live in Chicago, whereas our smaller clan is located in Rhode Island. My sister and her fiance thought it would be the best plan to do a wedding in Rhode Island and then a second reception in Chicago for members of his family who couldn't make it. Sounds reasonable enough, right? Wrong.

    It's kind of amazing that practically no details about her wedding to Kanye West have leaked thus far, but as it turns out, Kim Kardashian's latest travel outfit may be a clue as to what type of wedding dress she's going to wear.

    Supposedly she's been "dropping hints" about the designers she has her eye on by wearing other pieces from their collections. And if what she wore to fly from Miami back to Los Angeles is any indication, then we can add Balmain into the mix.

    When you see "Jenny McCarthy," the first thing that probably comes to mind is something like "vaccines" or "autism" -- but that obviously doesn't mean we can't be happy for her, as she just announced her engagement to Donnie Wahlberg on The View on Wednesday.

    "I just got engaged!" she exclaimed on the show. She had her hand hidden behind the desk (how clever) and then jumped around hugging everyone and shrieking, as brides-to-be should. "It's a yellow sapphire," she went on to explain. Then she teared up when she described how her son Evan helped plan the whole thing. Donnie also showed up on the set of The View on Wednesday to give his new fiance a kiss.

    Clearly this is fantastic news for her, but wow -- can you imagine having Mark Wahlberg as your brother-in-law? She's probably in for a ton of hilarious, raunchy, laughing-so-hard-you-pee-a-little family dinners. So jealous!

    It's official! After a very short 84-day engagement, Jill Duggar will be a June bride when she and her fiance Derick Dillard tie the knot on June 21 of this year. The couple made us all squee a little when they announced their engagement last week, even if most of us were shaking our heads at their strange mating rituals.

    Well, strange by today's standards, at least. The two have decided to not only wait to do the deed until they're married, but they're saving their first kiss for the altar too! Does that quick engagement make sense now? Wink, wink.

    They only have a little over a month until they're set to tie the knot, which is why it seems strange that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are touring wedding venues in Paris this week in an effort to nail down a spot.

    I mean, typically when brides plan weddings, they start with setting a timeframe for a date. Then the next logical thing that follows is picking out a location for the ceremony and reception, right? How in the heck are Kim and Kanye supposed to get anything else in place if they don't even know where in the hell they're getting hitched?

    I know they had their hearts set on becoming husband and wife at Versailles and all, but that plan was shot down quite a while ago. Why on Earth have they wasted all this time when they could've been checking out venues months ago?

    Planning a bridal shower is very rewarding. But it can also be a lot of work. What food to serve? What drinks to buy? What decorations and colors to work in? Will there be a theme? Who to invite? What should the favors be? There are so many things to sort out. Not the least of which are the games that will be played.

    We might chuckle at the idea, but folks come to a shower expecting to play games! It's a tradition! But that doesn't mean they should blow up your budget or be terribly complicated. In fact, with shower games, the simpler, the better. The main reason they still exist (other than the aforementioned tradition) is to act as an icebreaker. We've rounded up a few of our favorite free shower games.

    Weddings are an incredibly exciting time. But, as some former brides-to-be can tell you, they can also make for a pretty stressful time too. There's so much to do in order to get ready for the big day! How anyone manages to keep their cool is beyond me. Even the most well-mannered bride can bend under the pressure. While she might be masterful enough when it comes to her emotions not to outright scream, she isn't above a little bit of passive aggression.

    You kind of can't blame her! With so many people coming to her with so many different questions, problems, and concerns, it's only naturally that all her grinning-and-bearing-it will eventually start to show. Sadly for her, most stressed out brides aren't exactly great actresses.

    Many church weddings are predictable. The priest talks a bit. The bride and groom lovingly look deep into each other's eyes. I do. I do. And kiss the bride. Some people, and I'm not admitting that I'm one of them, don't really look forward to church weddings because some people think there is too much long, boring talk going on by the priest. Father Ray Kelly, however, does things very differently in his church.

    At the wedding of Chris and Leah O'Kane in the Oldcastle Church in Meath, Ireland, Father Kelly surprised everyone by singing a personalized version of "Hallelujah," originally by Leonard Cohen. If this doesn't brighten your day -- maybe even bring a happy tear to your eye -- you may have to check your pulse. Watch.

    They only have a little over a month to go before getting hitched, but unfortunately, it seems as though there is a huge problem with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding. It could spell major trouble if they don't figure out a way around it.

    RadarOnline has learned that according to French law, when a couple wants to get married, one of them is required to have lived in France for a minimum of 40 days -- otherwise the marriage ain't happening.

    And considering today is April 8, that gives Kimye about a week to establish some sort of residency over there. So we shouldn't be surprised if one or both of them winds up holed up in his Paris apartment until the big day.
