File this under who-needs-a-man: Tired of waiting for someone to come along and make her happy, 36-year-old Nadine Schweigert realized that she's already got that someone ... herself! So she decided to get married:

Nadine Schweigert says her wedding went so perfectly that it left her in awe.

The bride wore a long, satiny dress in peacock blue and carried a cluster of white roses. Schweigert’s best friend stood up for her. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed white wedding cake enrobed in peacock-blue fondant and New Orleans-style king cake.

The affair was missing just one, teensy detail: a groom.

In a purely symbolic ceremony, the 36-year-old “married” herself before a crowd of 45 friends and family members Saturday at Ecce Gallery in Fargo.

During the observance, the Fargo woman read her vows: “I, Nadine, promise to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self.” She presented herself with a ring and invited all guests to “blow kisses to the whole world” at the point of the traditional, bride-groom lip-lock.

The best thing is that she doesn't have to change her last name! Tammy Swift of Inforum has the story: Link - via Shine

...and sad. No one told her? If you're satisfied with your life as a single person, you don't have a public "wedding" to yourself. You just live.
