At Least One Pachyderm

When reality darling Nicole Ritchie wed musician Joel Madden in 2010, the couple's guests were shocked to discover an elaborately dressed elephant make an appearance at the ceremony. Although the elephant in the room was a surprise to nearly everyone, including the groom, we think we know where Ritchie got her inspiration.

Not only does she believe elephants to be good luck, but she was inspired by the lavish elephant-studded wedding in the movie, "Coming to America," in which Eddie Murphy played an African prince.

While we have mixed feelings about introducing a 7-ton (6.35 metric ton) pachyderm onto the Westminster grounds, the idea does embody something we wish for the royal couple. Although they may not opt for such an exotic twist, we do hope they put their own spin on tradition. There's nothing like shaking it up a bit to bond with the people.
