The editors here at WeddingWire spend most of our time sharing our best wedding-related advice. Once we watched this now-viral video of little JoJo imparting her knowledge of weddings, however, we realized that our attempts have been futile. She pretty much sums up all that you need to know about wedding ceremony etiquette (particularly regarding the “no shouting while someone is walking down the aisle” rule), and we should probably just give up now because she’s got it covered. This is also another prime example of why having kids at your wedding can be pretty great. Watch this video, and you’ll see what we mean.
Are you in need of some wedding inspiration this hump day? Our Editorial Team is busy writing content for our newly-launched Ideas Section! Each week, they’ll share their favorite articles and slideshows on Wednesdays at noon. Check out this roundup below:

Even though just one photo and a few small details have been released from Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen’s weekend nuptials, we still have major wedding-envy. From the secret Wyoming ranch location (learn more about it here!) to her amazing Oscar de la Renta gown (check out a similar style from the most recent collection), we’re absolutely swooning. Oh yeah, and then there’s the fact that everyone from Mindy Kaling to Lena Dunham to Katy Perry was there, and Tom Hanks was the officiant. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
In addition, our Real Weddings Editor is also busy featuring cute couples for our photo galleries! Each week, she’ll be sharing her favorite real weddings on Fridays at noon. Check out this roundup below:
Creative Fall Arizona Wedding – Kathleen and Matt were married at the Stillwell House and Garden in Tuscon, Ariz. on October 17. “The wedding was still romantic and classy, but had a little nod to our silly side,” said Kathleen. Take a peek at their stunning ceremony backdrop, which was composed of dozens of hanging glass orbs.

At first glance this video has all the makings of a hit rom-com. A beautiful wedding, hilarious speeches, great music, and of course, Kevin Hart. Much like the movies she’s starred in, Gabrielle Union’s wedding to Dwyane Wade at Chateau Artisan in Miami, Florida on August 30, was the perfect blend of romance and fun. The first thing that made our jaws drop? The venue. The actress and her longtime basketball superstar love married at a modern-day castle surrounded by a moat, a perfect fit for the rom-com princess. The bride was walked down the aisle in a strapless sweetheart ball gown by Dennis Basso by Dwyane’s two sons and his nephew. Of course, no celebrity wedding is complete without the vocals of John Legend, who performed the ceremony music. A reception followed in a big room with floor-to-ceiling windows where Kevin Hart toasted the couple. Gabrielle herself also made a speech telling guests “dreams do come true,” which was followed by a gospel choir performance. Guests, which included Ludacris, ended the night by showing off their best moves on the dance floor. Talk about an uplifting reception!
