Married Men: Gigi Buffon, Rafael van der Vaart & Didier Drogba
You thought we forgot a few earlier in the week and the truth is – we did. Consider this post a ‘make good’ from us to you!
Alena Seredova made an honest man out of Gianluigi Buffon yesterday in the bride’s hometown of Prague. The couple of six years had their bubbas Louis and David in attendance wearing wee adorable suits.
We’re not sure what kind of omen having to stare into the center of the sun for your paparazzi wedding photos is, but we sure do hope these two kids make it. We give Alena credit for not wearing a carnival of a wedding dress as so many WAGs are prone to do. Her simple white gown and full length veil is perfectly classy.
More holy matrimony this way!
Rafael and Sylvie van der Vaart renewed their wedding vows in Las Vegas (also yesterday). No word on whether or not an Elvis impersonator performed the ceremony, as is proper in all Vegas weddings.

We were a little put off by Sylvie’s W.T. wedding style attire, but were equally relieved to find that said attire did not include a baseball cap, a crop top, and a shed load of booze (also ‘proper’ for Vegas weddings).
Rounding out the trifecta of week day ‘baller weddings is Didier Drogba, who married his long-time love, Lalla Diakite in Monaco over the weekend. Didi invited 600 of his closest pals, with Chelsea team-mates Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda acting as groomsmen. And since it seems that no wedding involving the football world can be completely normal, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reportedly officiated the nuptials. We know the man enjoys to have control over his club, but,er, that’s weird.
