Wedding Quiz

July 9, 2009

The Today Show has wedding fever.

For the last month or so (I feel as though that’s an accurate estimate, merely based upon my half-awake assessment of the show when I watch it in the morning before work), the morning news program has been hosting their 10th annual “Today Throws a Wedding” series. The first half of the series involves four couples being whittled down to one through a  bunch of fairly amusing competitions. In the second half, different choices of gowns, honeymoons and rings are presented and Today viewers are allowed to vote for the winning picks. Thus, the couple has basically no say in how their wedding will turn out, but they get it all for free. Doesn’t sound like too shabby of a deal to me.

In honor of all this wedding hullabaloo, the Today show posted a fun little wedding quiz. Test your celebrity matrimony knowledge with the following questions (answers can be found on the site):

1) What movie did Michelle and Barack Obama see on their first date?

a) “Inside Man”

b) “She’s Gotta Have It”
