Battle of the Brides

2012-08-14 14:09
Jennifer Aniston's engaged to Justin Theroux.

Brad Pitt's engaged to Angelina Jolie.

Team Aniston and Team Jolie, whip out those T-shirts again - the battle is on!

When Brad and Jen famously split in 2005, supposedly because Brad fell in love with Angie on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, it was time to pick a side. Did you sympathise with "dumped" Jen or were you loving Brangelina too much?

I've always been rooting for team Brangelina. I've got no beef with Jennifer and goodness knows I'm happy she's found happiness again, but in my eyes, Brad and Angie belong together.

Jennifer and Angelina couldn't be more different. They're sure to have very different wedding gowns, very different wedding guests and nothing but one of the world's most famous movie stars to connect them.

Yet we can't help pitting them against each other. Photos are sure to be scrutinised to pick up on the finest details of their weddings. If they choose venues close to each other, we'll wonder who's spying on who. If they choose venues on opposite poles, we'll assume they're arch enemies.

It's what we do. We'd love to be their friends and have the 411 on everything, but because we're not, we're left with our over-active imaginations to piece it all together ourselves.

We're eagerly anticipating both weddings and hope they share more photos than both brides have of their previous weddings.

So tell us - which team are you on?

Here's to our favourite brides-to-be!


Local is very lekker!
