Las Vegas, Nevada - A woman in a suburb of Milan, Italy was determined to get married before her 40th birthday and she did-to herself.  The bride, Laura Mesi, wore a designer wedding gown and was attended by bridesmaids in a ceremony featuring a three-tiered cake, but no husband to share it with.

The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] says that, apparently, solo marriages are not all that uncommon these days.  "Sologamy," or self-marriage, seems to be catching on throughout the world.  Although it is not officially recognized, as Ms. Mesi [or is that Mrs.] put it:  "you can have a fairytale wedding even without the prince."
