Man, wife and sister: A heartwarming union

This one is a keeper.

Earlier this year, Will Seaton showed there are still many good guys out there. When Seaton decided it was finally time to pop the question to Ashley Schaus, there was one person he had to ask a very important question. No, not her father, but rather her sister Hannah. 

Seaton asked Hanna to be his “best friend forever.”

Hanna has Down’s syndrome and diabetes, and when Seaton and Schaus started dating, Hanna was part of the deal, the couple told ABC News in June.

The couple got married on Oct. 7 and Hanna was there in a special role. 

Wearing a white dress of her own, Hanna was a bridesmaid, but she was also dubbed the “Best Sister.”

Hanna also exchanged “best friend vows” with Will, WXIN reported.

“I promise to tell funny jokes. I promise to care for you. Thank you for being in my life,” Hanna told Will.

They also had a first dance together, to the Michael Bublè version of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” WXIN reported.

They are high school sweethearts who got married on their 6-year dating anniversary.

Baerman said in a Facebook post that Taco Bell was the couple's go-to spot after class in high school.

Laura Mesi, a 40-year-old fitness trainer from Italy, married herself and became the first woman in Italy to do so, according to the BBC

“I firmly believe that each of us must first of all love ourselves,” Mesi, who spent her honeymoon in Egypt, told The Telegraph. “You can have a fairytale even without the prince.”

While the ceremony has no legal weight, it carries a lot of significance to those who have a self-marriage, which is also known as “sologamy.” Sologamists are fighting the stigma that one needs to be married in order to live a complete and happy life, according to Cosmopolitan

“We’re set up as a culture to treat marriage as the most exciting thing you’ll ever do in your life,” Rebecca Traister, author of “All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation,” told Cosmopolitan. “But if you marry yourself, you can say, ‘My life is just as meaningful as the life of the person who happens to be getting married.’”

>> What is a ‘sologamist’ and why are people doing it?

Mesi might agree.

“Everyone celebrates getting together with someone and becoming married, but there’s no milestone in society that celebrates escaping something awful or returning to your own happiness and contentment,” she told the Telegraph.

Engaged couple seeking sponsorships to pay for dream wedding

Planning the perfect wedding is serious business for Jason Mielke and his fiancée, Rebecca Winter Hansen.

That's why the Canadian groom and bride-to-be are looking for sponsors to fund their Nov. 25 wedding.

According to the Moose Jaw Times Herald, Mielke lost his job in January, shortly after he asked Hansen to marry him.

Eloping or getting married at the courthouse isn't an option for the Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, couple, Mielke said. He also didn't want to ask family members for money, so he decided to seek sponsors for their special day.

"I've always been good at marketing, forming relationships in the community, sponsorship, stuff like that," he told the Times Herald. "I thought maybe I could do something here."

>> See their wedding website here

According to the CBC, Mielke and Hansen are "asking individual community members to donate money in return for a seat at their winter wedding reception." They're also hoping companies will pay for a red carpet, spa services, a gluten-free wedding cake and other items.

But Mielke and Hansen have some lines they won't cross.

"I Googled some pictures, and some brides have the logos of the companies on their dress, and I don't know if we're going that far," Mielke told the Times Herald.

Hansen said contributing to the couple's happy moment would lead to a "long-lasting and double-fold reciprocal return," the CBC reported.

"The power of giving always moves everyone toward greatness and making the impossible possible," she told the CBC.
