All hail, Kimye! The greatest luv union in history since Queen Cleo bought that first malt for Roman stud Tony is about to befall the world!

Saturday, they'll say their vows before the world at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. I'm crying already.   tirdad@phillynews.com 215-854-2736

Reader: Who in Philly comes to mind when looking for someone "pushing the envelope" in terms of molecular gastronomy? C.L.: Matt Levin, the former Lacroix chef who recently opened Adsum, would be one of my first stops. Lacroix at the Rittenhouse is another spot that still loves playing around with liquid nitro and various futuristic powders. The Garces restaurants have been dabbling with high-tech ingredients and techniques. Probably, the one place in town though that still seems extremely devoted to pushing this envelope is Marigold Kitchen in W. Philly, where current owner Robert Halpern is exploring that world with ambition, creativity and good ingredients.

Question: My son is getting married in four months. He and his fiancee have lived together for eight years and have a baby daughter. The mother of the bride (MOTB), along with the bride, have a huge wedding planned, with over 200 guests. MOTB has pretty much left me out of all the planning (I live about 10 hours away), with the exception of this: She's asked me to pay for the rehearsal dinner, the limo ride, and one hour of open bar at the reception. MOTB knows I lost my job almost a year ago, collected unemployment, and now work a 16-hour-per-week job at minimum wage.

Soap-opera weddings rarely come off without a hitch, but are there times when truth is stranger than fiction? Just about every actor we asked had a wedding horror story to relate. "It was just like in the movies," says Thom Christopher, who played Dante Partou on "Loving" and Carlo Hesser/Mortimer Bern on "One Life to Live. " "I never thought I'd ever actually hear anything in response to 'If there is anyone who can show just cause . . . ' but I was at a friend's wedding, and someone came forward with a quite unprintable objection.

Every detail of the wedding at the Episcopal Church of the Good Samaritan in Paoli had been planned. The gown was a classic: "It was all silk, with a low back and lace across the front, long sleeves . . . I bought it in April or May, and had it altered, had the bustles put up. It was elegant but simple," the bride-to-be, Dana Holmquist, speaking sadly in the past tense, said last night. Only hours from walking down the aisle, at a moment meant for focusing on the wedding rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner and her upcoming wedding vows, Holmquist instead spent her afternoon at a suburban United Parcel Service warehouse depot.

Lesley Ibanez, her red plastic cup filled with Flying Fish beer, looked up at the cloudy sky on a recent Friday night and was thankful. It wasn't going to rain, after all. The bride knew it was a gamble hosting her rehearsal dinner at an outdoor-only venue. If it rained, the backup plan - tents - would have to do, because she felt the space, Garden Variety in Northern Liberties, was perfect. "We wanted somewhere that everyone could enjoy, rather than a fancy restaurant," she said, motioning to her 50 or so party guests.

What's wrong with this postcard? Ken Peyre-Ferry is standing on the practice green at the Olympic Club, where the lifelong club pro is about to fulfill a three-decade quest by competing in his first U.S. Open. The only other three players there with him are Scott Simpson, Corey Pavin and Steve Jones, all former Open champions. But this week, Peyre-Ferry has received more ink than that trio combined. He was front-page material in one newspaper on Tuesday. "Good Morning America" has called.

Question: I am getting married in two months, and my fiance and I have decided to write our own vows. He wants them to be a surprise. I am no poet. Are there any good ways to ensure the vows are compatible, without ruining his emotional moment? Answer: If the surprise element is stressing the poetry out of you, then tell him that, and ask to make it a joint project. You can still love and appreciate his preference for surprise while respecting your own limits. If you're game to try, though, then you might want to start by getting inspiration.

I'm a card-carrying member of The Club - the Bridesmaids' Club: reliable types who have shelled out mad scratch for dear friends' Big Days, all for the grand distinction of being ordered around for a year. I have a closetful of five overpriced organza or satin gowns to prove it. With the money I've spent on other people's weddings, I could have thrown a darn nice one for myself. Thankfully, at tonight's 12th annual charity Bridesmaids' Ball at Liberty Place, about 400 other wedding-poor singles and I get to call the shots.

The wedding was going to be casual - a pig roast at the bride's Oxford home, with sunflowers. But on Sept. 23, Tamara Muenter will wed Craig Curry, a Texan, in a formal, Victorian affair at Wilmington's Bancroft Mansion with plenty of frills and lace, and a catered dinner for 120. The mansion, built in 1867 and situated behind the Delaware Art Museum, is the site of the second annual 1995 Designer Show Home, which opens tomorrow with the...

Hello there In 2002, Rebecca, who hails from Abington, and Mike, who grew up near New Orleans, shared a Northwestern University freshman poetry class. "Once we started talking, it felt like we could just talk forever," said Rebecca, who majored in theater and English. Rebecca tried for more conversational opportunities with frequent visits to a friend who lived across the hall from Mike and carefully timed trips to the dining hall. After a year discussing books, movies, and current events, Mike, a film major, asked Rebecca to attend a student play.

Ain't love grand? The folks at Philadelphia's own Banyan Productions sure think so. Today, they celebrate the 100th episode they've produced of A Wedding Story, the most popular show on The Learning Channel. A Wedding Story is pretty much just what you'd think. The producers find a couple, and follow them, from two days before the wedding to the reception. Boy and girl tell "how they met, and what they mean to each other," says Banyan's president, Ray Murray. There's footage of the rehearsal dinner, the bride getting into her gown, the vows, the dancing, the departure, pared down to a half-hour segment "with a happy ending every day," says Murray.

The parallels between restaurants and theater are uncanny. Think of the decor as the set, the waiters, hosts and busboys as actors, the chef as the producer/director. Just as every show holds previews before opening night, so does every self-respecting restaurant. But unlike most shows, which charge for the previews, the restaurants feed their audiences for free. "Order the world. It's worth it, whatever it costs," Joseph Tucker was saying on a Monday night earlier this month in his new restaurant at Broad and Spruce Streets, as deliverymen dropped off floral arrangement after floral arrangement.
