Some were elaborate and stretched out for days, some were tiny, intimate affairs, and some were kept a total secret – yep, 2018 saw a range of celebrity nuptials that have had us talking all the way into 2019. Whether it was for their outstanding dresses, their Coachella-themed after parties or the fact it stretched for days, here are the best celebrity weddings we witnessed from January to December.
Priyanka Chopra And Nick Jonas
We were all looking forward to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding for months. The build-up was high and the event did not disappoint. Celebrations kicked off on the weekend of December 1 and featured a traditional Hindu ceremony and the stunning Umaid Bhawan Palace with A-list guests including Sophie Turner.
There were multiple outfit changes including a stunning Ralph Lauren dress with a 75-foot veil and a Ralph & Russo Couture look for the pre-wedding ceremony because a girl can’t have too many outfits. Just when you thought it was all over, the couple surprised us with another post-honeymoon wedding party in Mumbai weeks later.
Many Moore And Taylor Goldsmith
Quite the opposite to Nick and Priyanka, Mandy Moore and musician Taylor Goldsmith tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on November 1 at LA’s Fig House, with 50 of their closest friends and family. Sharing photos to Instagram, Moore revealed her beautiful choice of ruffled blush pink gown by Rodarte.
Amy Schumer And Chris Fischer
Amy Schumer also casually slipped in her wedding news on Instagram in a post that simply read “yup,” accompanied with a shot from the private ceremony. The comedian apparently couldn’t wait to marry chef Chris Fischer in February and wanted a no-fuss affair. Her wedding reportedly took less than a week to plan. Schumer’s dog Tati was a key member of the bridal party.
Chiara Ferrangi And Fedez
Influencer of The Blonde Salad, Chiara Ferrangi, and Italian rapper Fedez opposed the no-fuss approach. These two exchanged vows in Sicily and the big day included three Dior outfits for the bride, 160 guests, a Coachella-themed after party, and smoke bombs that went off when the couple kissed. They also had a private plane that flew family and friends to the ceremony. I think it’s time we start choosing our friends more wisely!
Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth
Just when we thought our year of outstanding celebrity weddings had come to an end, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth surprised us all with their private ceremony at the singer’s Tennessee home on December 23. Rumors of the nuptial did begin to emerge when photos from a friend showed Miley dressed in a white dress on Instagram. The star herself later confirmed the marriage with her own romantic shots of the big day. She captioned one with, “10 years later.” Miley wore a white, Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder dress.
40+ People Who Deserve An Award For Confidence Even Though They Were Really, Really Wrong
Confidence is always a good thing, right? Well, confidence is great if you are actually right about the thing you’re confident in. If you’re wrong, not so much. That said, there are some people who are so confident in incorrect knowledge, that we still feel a little impressed by them. These are those people from the internet: absolutely wrong, but very confident that they are right.
Arguing with the Experts
There’s a certain level of extreme stupidity that goes with the confidence of someone who would argue with an expert. Even worse, not just arguing with an expert, but arguing with someone who actually did the thing you are fighting about.
It would be like trying to correct Buzz Aldrin about the details of the mission to the Moon. Who would have the gall and the foolhardy confidence to do that?
A lot of people don’t know where their products are really made. And yet, they will speak with great confidence about it, especially if they are trying to condemn something. Tesla is one such misunderstood company.
For anyone who confuses the Tesla cars with the historical Tesla, there is no relation. Yes, Tesla is an American company, making American cars. Just keep that in mind when talking about foreign vehicles.
Take a Bow
There are certain people you shouldn’t argue with: namely, people that are experts at what they do. Seriously, who is going to try and correct Stephen King of all people in regards to spelling? The confidence there is through the roof.
Of course, it was entirely misplaced confidence, but that is kind of the point of this article isn’t it? Don’t worry, it gets a whole lot worse!
Learning Your History
Lots of people have confidence in historical knowledge that is absolutely wrong. This person is just one of them, though it’s pretty amusing just how confident they are in something so laughably mistaken.
Remember, it’s always worse to be wrong about your own history, as opposed to the history of other people. You really don’t have any excuse for not knowing your own history.
Isn’t That John Boyega?
A lot of confidence involves someone making a totally blind assumption about things they don’t really know about. For instance, assuming John Boyega is a rapper, for reasons that are probably subliminally racist at best.
At least the guy admitted to his stupid assumption, but that doesn’t make it any less of an eye-roller, now does it? People on the internet should always fact-check what they are going to say before posting it.
You’re an Idiot
Correcting the misused words of other people on the internet is a time-honored tradition that everyone does. Most people are pretty confident about it, but that backfires horribly if you don’t know what you are talking about. Case in point, this guy right here.
We imagine that there was a lot of backlash for this misplaced confidence, but that’s what you get when you try to mistakenly correct someone else in the first place.
How the Food Chain Works
There are plenty of people out there that don’t really know how the food chain works. But few people have such great confidence in something as stupid as this. Why do we need crops if people buy food at the grocery store?
Such a stupid question can only be asked by someone with misplaced confidence in their knowledge. No one else would be willing to make themselves look that stupid in front of the world.
The Meaning of North America
Some people have great confidence in their geographical skills. However, most of them are wrong. In this example, we have a fellow who doesn’t really know what all is included in North America.
Remember people, the country came after the continent. There are several countries that are part of North America, and that includes both Canada and Mexico.
Missing Something Important Here
We’re going to ignore the stupidity that is claiming a relation between misogyny and eating meat (do women just not eat meat now?). Instead, we’re going to focus on the bigger problem here, that being the assumption that cows are being consumed when you eat yogurt.
What, did they think that yogurt is ground up cows, or something? Do they know that a mammal has to be female in order to produce milk? So many things are wrong here.
Oftentimes, people with great confidence just don’t stop to think about what they have said. For instance, Roman numerals aren’t letters. Wait a minute…
Yeah, if you just thought about that statement for more than two seconds, it would be obvious that something doesn’t add up. But very few people actually do that, as far as the internet is concerned.
The Metric System
Americans just can’t stand the idea of using the metric system. But if they all have the misplaced confidence of this guy, we can understand why. Not understanding the metric system might be a good reason to not use it.
Just so everyone knows, a mile is in fact longer than a kilometer. In fact, it’s almost twice as long, give or take a little distance. What’s funny is the fact that this guy on the internet got the conversion right, but failed to understand what the conversion meant.
A lot of people confuse ethnicity and nationality. They are two different things, and Europe is an easy way to understand them. People that are descended from European people all have European ethnicity, but they may be French, German, British: all of which are still European.
Yes, even Britain. Separated from mainland Europe it may be, but that doesn’t change which continent it belongs to, and the European Union has nothing to do with it.
Just Plain Wrong
There’s really not much to say here, because it’s obvious where the misplaced confidence is: it’s just someone who has no clue what they are talking about. Well, maybe they just made a mix up.
Either way, we imagine a lot of people raised their eyebrows when they read this during whatever argument was being had. How could you even mix up such important wars like that?
Apparently, there is a great deal of misplaced confidence regarding the United Kingdom and its place in the world. There are a lot of people that seem to be confused about what counts as the UK, and whether or not it counts as Europe as a whole.
To be fair, we’ll cut a little slack here: the United Kingdom is a pretty confusing body, especially considering the difference between the UK, Great Britain, and England. They don’t all describe the same thing!
Someone Failed Science
Here, we once again have someone who has an issue with the non-American measurement systems. We’re inclined to be somewhat lenient with them though, since the difference between Fahrenheit and Celsius is kind of weird.
Really, why do Americans pick such weird numbers for their measurements? Why go with 212 when you can settle for a simple 100? Then again, it doesn’t matter when you don’t know the temperature for boiling water in the first place.
So Much Wrong Here
You may assume the first person in this exchange is wrong, depending on whether or not you think the orange was named after the color, and not vice versa. But the real problem is the second person, thinking that star is a color.
What color would star be? White? Yellow? Blue? There’s a surprising number of colors that real stars can be, if we are talking about the ones you find in space.
Once in History Stupidity
2020 may only come around once in history (ignoring 2020 BC, we suppose), but there’s a bunch of other things wrong with the picture and statement below. We don’t know how someone said this in confidence without realizing it.
The thing is, 8:20 PM comes around, you know, every single day. So that kind of ruins the whole “once in history” thing they are trying to pull off here. Well, better luck next time.
The Point Still Stands
Lots of people try to correct others about Frankenstein with great confidence. Usually, they are right since a lot of people assume Frankenstein is the monster, when it is actually the doctor that built him.
But in regards to this particular joke, the guy trying to make a correction is still wrong, and the person who made the joke in the first place clearly knew what they were talking about.
Not Sure I Agree
There are ways to try and end an argument without conceding that you were wrong about the argument itself. It takes a degree of confidence, usually of the misplaced variety.
The guy trying to save face in his exit is absolutely wrong, trying to say that he doesn’t agree with cold hard facts. A lot of people have a tendency to disregard factual information if it doesn’t line up with what they were saying.
Practically a Documentary
Nine times out of ten, if someone bases their knowledge and beliefs on a movie by Disney, you can assume they are wrong about things. Confident, but wrong. This is especially true when it comes to mythology.
Seriously, read a book if you want to get some slightly more accurate info about the past. Trusting a movie probably isn’t a good idea if you don’t want to look like an idiot.
R. Kelly Math
Math is a hard subject. But that’s alright if you know you aren’t that good at it. It’s the people who are confident in their terrible math skills that are more deplorable. Of course, we’re not even sure how people do math like this.
You add the eight to the year the person was born in, which makes them eighteen? Wait, that doesn’t make any sense. This isn’t even a loophole if you were intending it to be one!
On a Technicality
Now, we can understand why one would assume that this post about a homeless muppet would be wrong, considering the point they made about Oscar the Grouch. He lives in a trashcan, right?
Well, Oscar the Grouch chose to live in a trash can of his own free will, which makes that trashcan his home. So is he really homeless, or does he just have a very weird sense of shelter?
Get Your Facts Straight
Far be it from the media to get their facts right all the time. In fact, they tend to get it wrong more often than not. But being confident in incorrect info tends to make you look like an idiot. Case in point, this right here.
Talk about looking stupid in front of the whole internet. Maybe he got lucky and few people actually saw it, though we doubt that. He was probably blasted pretty hard, though we can’t say he didn’t deserve it.
Actually, We Have
There are a lot of people that are both confident and wrong about vaccines. Usually, they are just missing a bunch of information or refuse to acknowledge it. But this really goes to an entirely new extreme.
If you are going to try and badmouth a certain field of technology or science, you should at least know what you are talking about before you do that. Otherwise, no one is going to consider whatever you had to say in the first place.
Let’s be real: neither of these guys is actually correct about what capitalism and communism are. However, there is a good point coming from the third responder. If the thing they are talking about happened in a capitalist society, then is it not an example of living under capitalism?
We suppose you could argue the point a little further, but we’d hardly say it’s like living under communism if it happened in a non-communist environment.
By Another Name
We’re actually willing to cut a little slack on this confidence, primarily because few people actually know that there is a country called Georgia, just like the state. Still, that doesn’t change how wrong the confidence in this answer is.
Maybe this confusion explains their misunderstanding of things in America. A little bit of research goes a long way, especially if something doesn’t make sense at first!
Renewable Energy Misunderstanding
Ben Shapiro isn’t exactly the kind of person one should look to for correct information. But if you are looking for an example of confidence in all the wrong places, he is a great person to take into consideration.
Needless to say, what he is saying here about renewable energy is completely wrong. That’s not how it works. That’s not how any of this works!
Remember when Animal Planet talked more about animals and less about humans? Yeah, if they were still doing that, maybe people wouldn’t say things like this. Dolphins are in fact mammals: they breathe air with lungs, just like we do.
That said, dolphins do look a lot like fish, so we’re willing to give people the slightest bit of slack for having confidence in calling them fish. It’s still wrong though.
Wrong, But Hilarious
We’re not even sure what to say about this one. Make no mistake, it’s ridiculously funny. But the amount of confidence that could go into a statement this wrong, it just can’t be fathomed.
We can’t imagine how hard the girlfriend laughed when she had to explain this to him. We just hope no one got too offended by his blasphemy. It was just an honest mistake, guys!
This meme is actually really funny (and gives us Ark or Minecraft flashbacks), but unfortunately, it’s also backward. 6001 BC would be before 6000 BC, not after. Remember, you count down while in BC, then count up in AD.
There’s no denying that they were wrong, but whatever, right? At least it wasn’t someone saying something stupid, which would have been easier to mock. This was just someone a little confused about how things work.
He Who Owns
Not trusting big corporations is something many people do. However, most of them know how to avoid those big corporations. This person has great confidence in avoiding Microsoft and its products, but also uses Windows and owns an Xbox.
Needless to say, there’s a bit of a disconnect there. Have they never bothered using Google to find out who owns those things?
The Literal Definition
We get what Trader Joe’s is trying to do here, but unfortunately, they have completely missed the point of their own example. They are literally describing a middleman while talking about removing the middleman!
We’re not sure who actually approved this sign, but we’re not sure if they bear all the blame for it. Doesn’t this kind of thing usually go through a bunch of people before it is approved?
That’s How It’s Done
The confidence in this statement is pretty laughable. Votes have never been counted after election day? But… how do you know who won, then? We’re honestly just curious how this guy believes the election actually works.
Like, do they have to count every single vote on election day? Are any votes after that day just thrown in the blender? How do they think the process works if you can’t count the votes after election day?
Anatomy, or Lack Thereof
We’re not trying to stereotype here, but if there’s one thing that appears to be true, it’s that most men speaking with confidence on the female body are wrong. Not all of them, but we’d take any assessment of the female body made by the average man with a grain of salt.
They aren’t all like this, but then again, you don’t hear stories about things being right, because where’s the fun in that? Confident correctness doesn’t make anyone laugh.
We’re not trying to make any sort of political statement here. However, there’s no denying that the president is a great example of someone who has often spoken with confidence while being wrong about the things he’s talking about.
This one is pretty embarrassing since it’s not that hard to learn a little bit of history about your own country. Well, not everyone does research on the things they are going to say, even when they definitely should.
The Weight of Stupidity
There’s a lot of things wrong with this image, and the text therein. Namely, this comparison between diamonds and any other object in the universe. We have to give kudos to the confidence with which it was said, but grams are grams. They don’t change based on the item in question.
One gram of diamonds is the exact same weight as one gram of feathers. There’s a saying in there somewhere, but it’s better to just know that it is true.
Failing Math Class
The math here seems pretty straightforward at a glance: just add the two percentages, right? Well no, that’s not at all how it works. Feel free to show your confidence with that simple addition though. Maybe you won’t be crucified too harshly by the court of public opinion.
Honestly, this is why fewer people should speak up on the internet. Few of them even understand how much of their reputation they are really risking.
It Just Is
You’ve probably noticed by now that a lot of the misplaced confidence in this article revolves around math. It’s a hard subject, but some people fail to understand even its simpler aspects. How is 18oz 50% more than 12oz? Because it just is?
50% of 12oz is 6oz. Just add it to the 12 and you get 18. It’s pretty simple math, and if you don’t get it, you may just come across as looking like an idiot.
Math Skills, 1/10
Speaking of people being confidently wrong about math, there’s this right here. We don’t know how accurate all those “nine out of ten dentists” claims are, but we’re pretty sure they are more accurate than the math going on right here.
Of course, that’s a pretty low bar to clear. Maybe we should rank which of the math-based follies on this list was most ridiculous? They’re all pretty bad.
Math Can Be Tricky
You guessed it, here’s another math-related one. Frankly, math seems to be one of the things people have the most confidence in while being the most mistaken. This example is particularly egregious, however.
We can’t imagine the person who made this statement was actually in their right mind when they said it, but you never know. They could just be extremely, especially misinformed. That happens a lot.
Speaking of misplaced confidence about the United Kingdom and locations surrounding it, here’s literally another one! Seriously, we want to know how many people are confused about this stuff, and where they all live. Are these Americans? Europeans?
Maybe it’s someone else entirely, but apparently, someone needs to make an easy-to-read graph that breaks down everything around the island and all the countries that are a part of it or near it.
Flat Earth Fallacy
There’s not much we actually have to say here, all things considered. We don’t want to be those guys that speak ill of an entire group of people, but Flat Earthers… they really are something else entirely. Something almost impossible to comprehend.
On the other hand, they take the cake for being the type of people who have the most confidence in the most egregiously incorrect things in the world.
The Origin of Pizza
Oddly enough, a lot of people are actually quite confused about the origin of pizza. Contrary to popular belief, it did not come from Italy, despite being heavily associated with the country and its people.
There’s actually a lot of food like that. French Fries aren’t French, and fortune cookies aren’t Chinese. We’re not sure why Americans like to pretend that such things come from other places. Is it just the name?
Do You Mean Waves or the World’s Curves?
Speaking of Flat Earthers, now we get to talk about the confidence they have in water mountains! Seriously, what the heck are water mountains? We’re not even sure which aspect of the ocean they are referring to. Waves? Natural curvature?
We’re not sure one way or another, but regardless of what they are talking about, we can say with absolute certainty that it is wrong. About as wrong as you can possibly get.
What on Earth…?
We honestly don’t know what the heck is being said in this social media post. It makes no sense to us at all. What we do know is that someone here has an extreme amount of confidence in the crazy stuff they are saying.
Whatever your stance on the chicken and egg debate, we’re certain that this assessment is incorrect. It’s befuddling just to read the darn thing, never mind trying to actually make sense of it.
