    Thorughout their entire relationship, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have played by their own rules, so it's no surprise the two broke with tradition when they said "I do" this past weekend! The newly-minted Mr. and Mrs. reportedly gave their daughter Shiloh the honor of ringbearer, alongside brother Pax, while daughters Vivienne and Zahara served as flower girls.

    But as novel as the famous pair's move may seem, switching up gender roles in your bridal party has been a widespread trend for a while now.

    "Weddings today are more gender-neutral than they have ever been in the past," explains wedding planner Aviva Samuels of Kiss the Planner in Delray Beach, Florida. "Certainly girls can carry in the ring, and boys can sprinkle petals if that’s what suits the bride and groom. And if a bride's best friend is a guy or the groom's best friend is a girl, so be it."

    Are there any moms who wouldn't love a complimentary photo session with their baby? Well, you may be in luck if you've had a successful Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC). Launched by Amy Wehner, PhD, a doula with Opet Childbirth Services, the VBAC Project set the goal of collecting one million photos of VBAC moms and babies. The movement is gaining momentum by offering free photo sessions this Labor Day weekend.

    More than one million cesareans are performed in the US each year. For some moms, a traumatic C-section experience grabs them like a choke-hold; they mourn the loss of control over their birth experience, suffer from feelings of inadequacy, and feel an overwhelming desire to reclaim what they lost in the operating room. The VBAC Project was designed to give power back to those moms.

    You've been charged with throwing a baby shower, and you want it to be ah-mazing for your expectant friend. Yet the image that baby showers first conjure up in your mind -- of well-dressed ladies primly sipping lemonade on a Sunday afternoon, husbands nowhere to be seen -- just doesn't fit your pal's style. Well, to heck with all that then! Baby showers are steeped in antiquated traditions, many of which should have been jettisoned along with girdles back in the 1950s. Here are 7 baby shower rules worth breaking, plus some fun, more modern ideas to celebrate a baby's arrival in style.

    Once in awhile, my female friends and I joke about all of us living in the same building together. We would help each other cook and clean and take care of kids. We'd bring each other to doctor's appointments. We'd always have someone to talk to.

    The catch? Husbands are strictly forbidden.

    Yeah, so maybe we don't know who would trap the mouse if we saw one, but there would be much less arguing. We'd get the help we need instead of resenting the help we don't. Sex? Oh sure. Husband or boyfriend could come over for that. But then they'd have to leave.

    Of course, we don't go through with this plan, because we truly do love our men (on good days). But deep in Brazil there is a town that is living this dream. It's called Noiva do Cordeiro, and it's made up of mostly women.

    OMG, you guys. The only thing better than hearing details about her pregnancy is seeing how excited she is about it -- and that's why you're not going to be able to resist this video of Catelynn Lowell sharing her baby's heartbeat, which you can clearly hear in the clip.

    I know ... seeing the first ultrasound photo that Tyler Baltierra shared was thrilling enough, but getting to experience this part of Catelynn's pregnancy is a real treat too.

    If Saved by the Bell can do it, so can Friends! We're talking about a reunion with its fabulous cast members, which may never actually happen -- okay, it's never going to happen -- but that's okay. Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, we got the second best thing last night: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow reprised their roles as Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe and agreed to act out a scene from Kimmel's fanfiction, in which the TV host cast himself in the role of Ross.

    Hmm. After the news broke that he's dating again, most of us assumed he was simply having a rebound romance after his split from Cressida Bonas earlier this year. But after hearing that Prince Harry took Camilla Thurlow on a cruise in Saint-Tropez with a few of his pals? It's quite obvious that their relationship is going in a serious direction.

    According to US Weekly, they sailed off on August 23, and the trip was part of Harry's 30th birthday celebration. He also supposedly needed some time off to "recharge his batteries," and there's really no better place to do that than on a luxury yacht.

    We still have a little over a week to go until the official announcement is made by ABC, but so far the Dancing With the Stars season 19 cast rumors are pretty exciting.

    From Bachelorette couple Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray to country singer Jessie James Decker to American Ninja Warrior star Kacy Catanzaro, the competition is setting up to be pretty fierce if the rumors turn out to be true.

    But it looks like there is one very sexy man we can go ahead and add to the list of possibilities. According to E! News, General Hospital star Antonio Sabato Jr. will give DWTS a try this time around.

    You may have been super tired last night/woken up bleary-eyed this morning, but most likely your spirits were risen to the high heavens when you read the latest breaking entertainment news. It seems that a Full House revival is in the works! Yep, your favorite, cheesy, violin-background music-loving, all-white cast could actually grace your television screens yet again in the very near future. Oh, Mylanta!

    The sitcom aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995 and can still be seen at nighttime on Nick at Nite. Don't lie, you know you've watched a couple episodes. With the show's success on Nick at Nite, Warner Bros. TV is thinking about bringing back some of the original cast and giving the show a reboot. With the newly revived Girl Meets World getting a second season, this could equal ratings gold. Or, at the very least, a super-curious audience who wants to see exactly which direction the reboot could possibly take.
