Katy Perry, Russell Brand, Twitter


We love a lavish wedding as much as the next gal or gay—a big, fancy cake, glasses filled with bubbly and dancing galore.

But lately, Team Truth has been wondering if bigger weddings will only end up meaning bigger problems for the duo who, ya know, say "I do." So what got us thinking like the bummer of the bridal party? Katy Perry and Russell Brand, of course, the latest couple to call it quits after some mega-extravagant nuptials.

And the former Mr. and Mrs. Brand aren't the only couple comin' to mind…

While we're hardly placing the blame for the demise of this duo on their lavish wedding in India, we're kinda thinkin' perhaps the wedding hoopla had the couple forgetting about their future.

Like what would happen after the fairy tale wears off? As many of you A.T. readers noted, these two have a whole lotta differences (he's sober, she's not, she's Christian, he's a bad boy, and the list goes on), and call us crazy for thinking they didn't entirely talk it out before saying I do.

Sounding like another famous couple? Kim Kardashian and Kris Humpries, perhaps?

Even Kim K. admitted she felt caught up in the wedding bliss, and well, we don't need to tell you how that turned out.

Or another example if the Kardashian divorce wound is a bit too fresh? Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. The duo had a whole friggin' show dedicated to their wedded bliss only to sign divorce papers just three years later.

And heck, even Robert Pattinson admitted divorce is the "only option" for Bella and Edward and their Breaking Dawn nuptials practically put the royal wedding to shame.

So, we must ask the obvious: Do big weddings really lead to bigger problems?
