And it's definitely going to be a flamboyant affair. New pictures show Ronnie looking like the picture of happiness in her traditional embroidered white gown - with her sister Roxy beaming next to her in a black frock.
It's clearly a no expense spared dream wedding with the pair pulling out all the stops to make the wedding go by without a glitch (they've even hired a bus to get everyone to the church on time!)
Ronnie and Jack look blissfully happy in the wedding snaps – but the happiness won't last for long as both Ronnie (Samantha Womack) and Roxy (Rita Simons) are though to meet their deaths in the explosive New Year special.
Ever since the news leaked that the sisters will be leaving the soap AT THE SAME TIME after a decade of award-winning drama – the rumour mill has been on fire with theories on how they may leave.
Will Ronnie and Roxy both be killed off in a dramatic stunt? Or will one sister die trying to save the other? Or will both of them live to tell the tale?
An insider told Digital Spy: "Rita and Samantha created the iconic Mitchell sisters and with their undeniable chemistry, they immediately created a double act that the viewers fell in love with.
"But when [the show staff] all sat down to work out where to take them, they all felt it was the right time to rest them. When you look back over nearly a decade and realise what they have been through, it seems that most avenues have been exhausted."
We really hope these two get the ending they both deserve. Now sit back and enjoy some delicious EastEnders drama.

December 22 'DANCING WITH THE STARS' COUPLES ARE ADORABLE! EMMA AND SASHA MAKE WEDDING PLANS AS PETA AND MAKS PREPARE FOR THEIR BABY BOY
The Dancing With The Stars couples are going strong as 2016 comes to a close. Sasha Farber is visiting Emma Slater on tour, Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovskiy are preparing for their baby, and Val Chmerkovskiy and Amber Rose are getting serious.
Emma and Sasha have been apart since Emma left for the DWTS tour. But Emma took to Twitter to announce she and Sasha are finally reuniting Thursday. “I can’t wait to see @SashaFarber in just a few hours,” she wrote.

So now that the tour’s on a break for the holidays, will Emma and Sasha make wedding plans? Emma previously revealed that they’re hoping to tie the knot next year. She’d like to get married in nature, invite her DWTS friends, and incorporate Russian culture.
Peta and Maks, meanwhile, are preparing for their son’s Jan. 2 due date. They just threw a baby shower last weekend in Brooklyn. They went all out, decorating the McCarren Hotel & Pool in blue and gold, handing out a bunch of desserts and setting up a Shake and Share Media booth.
“The love in the room was apparent and the babies made us feel at ease about bringing a kid into this crazy world. If our children are half as close as we have been through the years, they will have a large family of loyal friends to fall back on!” Maks wrote on Instagram after the shower.
He added, “That’s what it’s all about after all … Don’t like the world you live in??? Do better! And it starts with how you raise your children. This is an incredible adventure and I can’t say enough how lucky I am to have a partner like @petamurgatroyd to experience it with! I love you for always.”
Val brought his girlfriend Amber Rose to his brother’s baby shower. And their relationship is already heating up.
The Val and Amber dating rumors first started back in October. Since then, Amber's called Val “bae” on Twitter, and they’ve been seen out together multiple times. “They’re solid and in a good place,” a source previously told People. “They’re both very happy with how things are going.”

December 21 9 Beauty Trends to Leave Behind in 2016
2016 was an epic year for the beauty world: CoverGirl announced its first male ambassador, Kylie Jenner solidified herself as the “king” of cosmetics, and Instagram proved to be the birthplace of many a beauty trend.
pics:prom dresses london
And while some of these trends were pretty exciting when they first launched, here are nine we can’t wait to say farewell to once we enter 2017.
It was a trend that started in 2015 and continued strong (and given new life … unicorn horns anyone?) in 2016. Despite the saying, “Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn,” we say 2017 is the year to let go of the My Little Pony hair.
While we love that this feature finally got the recognition it deserves (especially with so many people being self-conscious of their freckles), it’s time to put down the brown pencil liners and leave the freckles for those who were naturally blessed with them so you can embrace your natural features.
Beauty vloggers went overboard when experimenting with their hair-curling techniques — everything from tampons to maxi pads and even cheese puffs were used in an attempt to get the perfect ringlets. Despite wasting a perfectly good bag of Cheetos on your hair (and leaving cheesy dust everywhere in the process), using these random items to curl your locks is absolutely unnecessary.
It’s the trend that gave “having a green thumb” a whole new meaning, but thankfully succulent nails are short-lived. You don’t need plants growing off of your nails, people!

December 20 Velvet, lace, floral – the hottest party fabrics of 2016
It’s the most exciting, yet nerve-racking, time of the year: a whirl of shopping and holiday parties.
As you flit from one champagne-fuelled event to the next, your style needs to be on point – because the last thing you want to do is end the year on a style disaster. Forget about dusting off “ol’ faithful” – the little black short prom dresses uk you’ve always resorted to – that won’t cut it this year.
Whether you love it or hate it, velvet is here to stay. The good news is that designers have come up with some lovely options to update this classic evening wear fabric. Brands such as Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani, Rochas, Haider Ackermann, Gucci and Sacai are offering playful takes on velvet for the holiday season. And if you’re not daring enough to go velvet for the whole body, the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Jimmy Choo are using it in shoes and accessories.
In a dark world, Haider Ackermann embraces the bright side
The trend comes as part of a 1990s revival in fashion, but this time it’s not just boring black – colourful velvet and even crushed velvet are making the rounds. We are fans of velvet slip dresses this winter and the various velvet pantsuits, such as the dark emerald green one from Frame worn by supermodel Natasha Poly.
I’ve always been a fan of sexy, party jumpsuits. It reminds me of the ’70s “glamazons” and that whole Studio 54 Bianca Jagger vibe. The jumpsuit has enjoyed a resurgence on the catwalk lately with brands such as Chloé, Versace and Elie Saab all embracing retro styles but executed with a modern elegance and panache. Thankfully, it’s not just high fashion either; there’s plenty to find on the high street, too. Zara, for example, does a red version with an asymmetrical frilled neckline for HK$499. Don some impressive heels and you’re golden. Winter florals can be sensual and enticing while bringing a touch of complexity to an outfit, depending on the print. We’re in love with dark floral jacquard with rich shine from Erdem (availabe from matchesfashion.com), which always does the most sophisticated floral prints. Micro florals are also a hit this season: the strapless, wide-leg jumpsuit by Johanna Ortiz in a white on navy micro floral print is an inspired choice.
Silver is a key colour in stores at the moment and perhaps that has something to do with this year’s Met Ball Gala (the theme was Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology) where the red carpet saw the likes of Cindy Crawford, Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora and Poppy Delevingne all looking fabulous in futuristic silver gowns. Many brands and designers are eschewing traditional gold for more fashion-forward silver metallic dresses, blazers or pleated skirts.
We all love a bit of bling, and there’s plenty of it around: see Valentino, Balenciaga, Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana. And high street hero H&M has lots of affordable options, with a silver floor-length slip dress being one of our favourites.
Why S.Nine’s Hong Kong designer Susanna Soo is happy to stick to her roots
Sexy lace is always a good option, but avoid saccharine versions in peach or pink. I favour black or darker tones for the holiday season. If you can’t afford Valentino’s intricate lace creations, try Self Portrait (available at Net-A-Porter and Lane Crawford), which has made a name for itself with well-structured, feminine lace outfits at a decent price. If you want to go local, S.Nine by Susanna Soo has plenty of body-conscious lace in sumptuous hues – we especially like the festive red high-collar sleeveless dress with lace trim hemline.
A little feminine volume goes a long way, and we like the way in which Ellery and Johanna Ortiz introduce a bold frill or peplum but keep it modern through clever draping and construction. Hong Kong designer Melissa Bui does something similar in terms of volume in her dramatic evening and day outfits. For this party season, we like her black and white outfits that use a voluminous sleeve, or skirt peplum to add a touch of drama.
Finally, there’s good news for the girly girls – the return of the ultra feminine in fashion and evening wear – with floaty sheers, tiered ruffles and light bohemian fabrics leading the way. For inspiration, just look to the catwalks of Alexander McQueen, Chloé, Valentino, Gucci and Bora Aksu, who recently opened a store in Hong Kong. These can add a romantic, flirty twist to your cocktail outfit, but just make sure the outfit doesn’t overwhelm your body.
Ultimately, the holiday season is just the right time of year to bring a little fantasy and magic to your sartorial choices.

December 18 Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg on diversity
Twice a year, before the fall and spring collections make their debut on runways around the world, designer Diane von Furstenberg sends out a message to the fashion community.
“I always tell them: ‘Health is beauty. Please do not use anorexic girls.’ And, ‘Diversity,’” von Furstenberg explained during a live discussion with fashion critic Robin Givhan at The Washington Post on Dec. 15.
That plea is just one example of how the industry icon has helped shape and define fashion over the last 40 years.
Born in Belgium in 1946 to a Romanian father and a Greek mother who survived 13 months in Auschwitz, von Furstenberg said fashion was never a real goal for her.
“When I was growing up, I did not really know what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman that I wanted to be. I wanted to be a woman who was independent, who could pay her own bills, who was not depending on her father or husband — that was the most important,” she said.
But while working as a photographer’s agent in Paris in the late ’60s, von Furstenberg discovered fashion, and fell for it — hard. She wanted to learn more than just the world of modeling and styling, so she traveled to Italy to study with a silk and jersey manufacturer. It was there that she made her first long prom dresses and learned the ins and outs of cut, color and fabric.
After her apprenticeship in Italy, von Furstenberg married her college sweetheart, Prince Egon von Furstenberg, a member of the German aristocratic family who was also a fashion designer. The two moved to New York and, right away, had two children. Von Furstenberg said it was becoming a mother that made her determined to have a successful career.
“I always wanted to have a man’s life in a woman’s body,” she said.
In 1972, von Furstenberg showed her designs to Vogue’s then Editor-in-Chief Diana Vreeland, whose response to von Furstenberg’s T-shirt dress was, “This is genius.”
That was just the encouragement she needed to kickstart her career. By 1976, von Furstenberg was making 25,000 dresses a week.
“Which is 50,000 sleeves,” she said.
She graced the cover of Newsweek, and her signature printed wrap dress became a symbol of the 70s. Von Furstenberg said it was professional, yet freeing and rebellious. The $86 dress launched her into the spotlight.
“That dress is a bit of a mystery because it was a huge success and everybody had so many of them that it got saturated for a while,” von Furstenberg said.
But with a new decade came new change, and von Furstenberg was left uninspired in the ’80s. In fact, in her book published years prior to the 2016 presidential election, von Furstenberg said she decided to leave New York because “New York had become the city of Donald Trump.”
“What I meant was the mid-80s was ‘Dynasty,’ it was ‘Dallas,’ you know, big shoulder pads, big boofy hair … and so money seemed to be the big deal,” von Furstenberg said.
After splitting with her husband, she moved back to Paris and opened a small publishing house. The designer admits it was a tough time in her life, as she realized a lot of her identity was tied to her brand and her business, which she sold when she left New York. Her children were away at college, and she developed cancer in her tongue.
“I couldn’t express myself,” she said.
But a new door opened for von Furstenberg in the early ’90s — the opportunity to re-launch her designs and her brand on QVC, a cable home-shopping channel. In two hours, the designer sold $1.2 million of her Silk Assets collection, and just like that, she was back in the game.
“After having felt like such a ‘has-been’ for a while, I was a pioneer again,” said von Furstenberg, who reintroduced the wrap dress to a new generation in 1999.
Now, von Furstenberg is one of the biggest, most well-respected names in the business. Everyone from Michelle Obama, to Kate Middleton, to Karlie Kloss has donned a von Furstenberg wrap dress. And the door is open for the designer to dress other notable figures.
When asked if she would long evening dresses America’s next first lady, von Furstenberg didn’t shy away.
“Any first lady should be respected like any first lady,” she said, adding that she, in turn, thinks the first ladies owe something to America’s fashion industry.
If they can wear American labels, they should, she said. “It makes sense.”
Despite recurring runway shows, skyrocketing sales and her influence on the industry, von Furstenberg said her best accomplishment is her family.
“All I can tell you is that the most successful thing I’ve ever done is my family. The thing I am proudest of is the quality of people and of human beings that my children and my grandchildren are,” she said, adding one piece of advice for the modern working woman.
“Definitely I think women should have children, and I also think women should have an identity outside the home. It is very difficult, but it is indispensable.”
July 28 Who Will Design Pippa Middleton's Wedding Dress?
The world could not handle the news that Pippa Middleton was engaged to her beau James Matthews, after flashing her estimated 250K sparkler for us gawkers to swoon over. Then came the questions...Will her big sis be her bridesmaid? Where will they say ‘I do’? Will MIC star Spencer Matthews be best man? And DATES - we need dates, please!
But the bigger question on every fashion girl’s lips – who will design Pippa Middleton’s wedding blue prom dresses uk?
The 32-year-old author and businesswoman has upstaged her sister on many a royal occasion. Case in point? Kate and Wills’ wedding in 2011, in that white Alexander McQueen dress.
And even her day-to-day fashion choices get serious applause from top Fashion Editor’s – whether she’s rocking a chic skinny jean and silk top combo or a glamourous floral print dress for Wimbledon.
So to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of the rising royal style icon, team Grazia has picked the designers who are in the front running to dress her on her big day…
'I think Jenny Packham - she designed Pippa’s dress for Kate and Will’s reception (below) and while she’s very quintessentially British, she’s also not not too ‘fashion’, which Pippa isn’t either. She’s never worn a fashion forward piece like Roksanda etc… Pippa is very into that quite sloaney floaty, floral, maybe a bit embellished dare I say it, Monsoon look. Packham is a safe choice.’ Laura Grabiner, Grazia’s Fashion Intern
‘I would love to see Giles Deacon design her dress. His new couture line is just beautiful and it would be great if she used a British designer and someone who is known for statement gowns’. – Gemma Hayward, Grazia’s Senior Fashion Editor
‘I would love to see Pippa in a gown designed by Giles, something fabulous and with intricate detailing, it would be great for her to wear a British brand, or something super elegant and clean from Roksanda.’ - Polly Knight Grazia’s Shopping Editor
‘I’m all for a bit of healthy sibling rivalry in the style department. While of course I thought that Sarah Burton’s chic and lacy creation for the Duchess of Cambridge was phenomenal, it would be interesting to see how Pippa’s wedding dress by Kate’s go-to designer would differ. Let the Bride Wars commence…’ – Emma Firth, Grazia’s Freelance Writer
‘Pippa always looks incredible in Tabitha Webb’s statement dresses. In fact, she’s such a fan of the under the radar brand she recently collaborated with them to create an exclusive dress and scarf in aid of the British Heart Foundation. ‘Pippa co-designs her own wedding black prom dresses’. Now that’s a headline I’d like to see. ‘ - Danielle Fowler, Grazia’s Intern
Will have to wait and see what the final result is. But in the meantime here’s a look back at all the times Pippa Middleton was our ultimate style crush…
July 27 Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher Went The Low Key Route With Their Wedding Rings
Most of us live rather modest lives where we try to go all-out when it comes to purchasing big-ticket items like engagement rings and wedding bands. Really, it’s something you should theoretically be wearing for the rest of your lives (or at least the rest of your marriage, whichever ends first). Sure, one could potentially buy nicer replacements further on down the line, but usually those are some pretty huge purchases all in the name of love.
photos:white evening dresses uk
Celebrities obviously have more disposable income for this kind of stuff and this is sort of an age where the rich and famous showing off their bling via Instagram and other social media isn’t uncommon, yet Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher did the exact opposite, Mila told Conan O’Brien. Did Ashton and Mila go to Jared for their ultra-thin titanium wedding bands? Nah, they browsed Etsy and picked the two bands up for just under $200.
That is not a typo, two famous, successful actors spent both $90 and $100, respectively, on their wedding bands. So for all of you out there that have an impending wedding and are starting to fret over the mounting costs (and boy do they add up quickly), be more like Mila and Ashton: just find something cheap on Etsy and instead of focusing on those material things just love each other. What a message, right?

July 26 These High School Sweethearts Had the MOST Romantic Garden Wedding
Tina and Levi met as high school freshmen — but ended up as husband and wife. After spending their first four years as best friends, they realized that they were meant to be much more. The two became inseparable while dating the next eight years, finishing college and starting their careers together.

For their wedding at the historic Casino Estate in San Clemente, CA, Tina and Levi envisioned an intimate garden ceremony and a romantic, backyard dinner-like reception. "We love the feeling of sitting at a long table with all of your close friends, chatting over a cocktail, and some really good food," Levi told their photographer. "So we made that our focus and went from there."
One of the sweetest moments during the couple's wedding was the first dance — but not theirs. Levi's grandparents were also celebrating their 60th anniversary but didn't get to share a first dance on their own wedding day since it wasn't yet a tradition in the '50s. "He showed me a song that they would have danced to if they had the chance," Levi shared. "So Tina and I arranged to surprise them during the reception with a special moment on the dance floor, where they could have their first dance to their special song."
Take a look at the gorgeous pictures ahead!

July 25 Newlywed couple holds up traffic as wedding helicopter lands in middle of busy street
This newlywed couple have caused outrage after they caused huge traffic jamsby landing a helicopter in the street.
The chopper, which was taking the happy pair to their wedding in China, meant police had to hold up queues of cars.
The media has dubbed the couple a pair of "tu hao" - a Chinese phrase used to describe the country’s new rich who have more money than sense - after panicking drivers affected by the sudden appearance of the craft called the police for help.
Police cars arrived on scene following the calls, reports said, but authorities assured the public and the other officers that both the road closure and the helicopter flight were both authorised.
Amateur pictures now being shared on China’s Twitter-like microblogging website Sina Weibo show the well-princess prom dress couple smiling happily as they board the craft.
Puzzled drivers could do nothing except wait in long queues, which are said to have lasted for more than an hour.
The unnamed couple were not seen or heard from again after they left the traffic-laden streets behind.
Weibo users noted that while the couple were allowed to spend their money as they pleased, Shanghai officials should show more consideration towards those who were affected by the stunt.
During traditional Chinese weddings , the groom’s family picks the bride up from her family home by car or palanquin.
But in more recent times couples have added a twist to the custom, choosing to use bicycles and lorries and other more unorthodox modes of transport instead.
Reports citing traffic officials said that if they had pulled off their stunt illegally, the couple would have been fined at least 100,000 RMB (around £11,000) for the disruption - and the helicopter pilot would have lost his licence.
