The Summer of LeBron is nearing its end and culminates with a pretty big event this weekend: His wedding. Given that LeBron James prefers to do pretty much everything in an over-the-top manner, it should come as no surprise that reports surfacing regarding his top-secret wedding to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson indicate that the festivities surrounding the wedding will be a lavish — and long — affair.
Brinson and James have been an item since high school and became engaged on Dec. 31 of last year, so the couple will be sparing no expense to ensure a grand time will be had by one and all as the two make their union official.
With Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and president Pat Riley, teammate Dwyane Wade (goodness knows what he’ll be wearing) and New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and their significant others as well as Los Angeles Clippers superstar Chris Paul rumored to be among the esteemed guests, the celebration of James-Brinson nuptials reportedly will be spread out over three days.
Rumor has it that the festivities will be held at one of two hotels in San Diego, Calif., either the Grand Del Mar or Hotel Del Coronado. And it’s a sure bet security will be tight at either locale, so any thoughts of crashing the wedding — we’re all looking at you Stephen A. Smith — should probably be put on the back burner.
Page Six reports LeBron already apparently has cut back on the guest list, although it is expected the number of attendees will still be in the hundreds, as he apparently prefers a smaller scale affair in numbers, but clearly not in grandeur.
The three days of fun will kick off with a welcome barbecue on Friday. The wedding will be held on Saturday afternoon with the customary cocktail hour, dinner and DJs and dancing to follow.
A farewell brunch on Sunday morning will send the presumably worn-out guests on their way.
It certainly sounds like it will be a weekend to remember, but if one piece of advice could be interjected here: Skip the in-room DJ on the wedding night, LeBron. Three people in the honeymoon suite is one too many.
