Wedding contest enlists Paramore for performance but forgets to tell them

October 27, 2017

After splitting from hubby Chad Gilbert last summer, Hayley Williams is... not stoked.

Some people get married in churches, others get married on the beach, and if you’re Kacey Musgraves, you tie the knot in an a fairytale outdoor wedding, complete with a white stallion and falling leaves.

Virginia-based radio station X96 seems to have its own ideas about how you should get married. As part of their Winter Meltdown show, they’re offering a total wedding package, giving a couple the chance to say their vows on stage. The station will provide the wedding dress, a tuxedo for the groom, a VIP suite, free food, and an elaborate cake.

The best part: Paramore will perform.

Unfortunately, it seems like the station forgot to tell the band about it, and singer Hayley Williams isn’t thrilled.

Williams split from longtime partner (and husband) Chad Gilbert this summer, so it makes total sense that she’d be less than stoked about this. Luckily, her BFF — and tour mate —Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast came to the rescue, offering her own proposal. 

Because that’s what friends are for.
