Marriage, musicals for midgets and mansions

Marriage fair
If you’re getting married this year, the Marriage Fair at the Bella Center this weekend is the place to be. Everyone who’s anyone in the industry is gathering for just two days under the same roof – there will never be more inspiration for your big day. (And something even possibly for men.) Just think of all the travelling time you’ll save visiting them all in the same place. In total there will be 120 different stands. MSØ
