The rumour mill has been churning overtime this week (and it’s only Wednesday!) with news of celebrity couples announcing their engagements—and other pairs calling it quits before making it to the altar. Need help keeping track of it all? Here’s our guide to the biggest engagements (and breakups) of the past few days:
Shannon Tweed & Gene Simmons
After insisting he wasn’t the marrying kind, KISS star Gene Simmons popped the question to long-time lady love Shannon Tweed during a romantic getaway in Belize. The proposal aired last night on the couple’s A&E reality show, Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels. Tweed and Simmons have been together for more than 25 years and have two grown children together.
Carey Mulligan & Marcus Mumford
Actress Carey Mulligan and musician Marcus Mumford (of Mumford & Sons) met last February when he invited her to a private gig. The proposal reportedly happened over the weekend in Somerset, England at a posh hotel and country club. Mulligan was seen on the property sporting a beautiful diamond ring. We love Ms. Mulligan’s style and can’t wait to see what she wears for her trip down the aisle. Yesterday we picked some fabulous dress options for her(check them out here).

Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler
Just days ago we blogged about Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s wedding registry, but now they’re through: and rumour has it Cavallari (of Laguna Beach and The Hills fame) is the one who got dumped. She was spotted at an L.A. nightclub on Saturday night without her engagement ring. To add insult to injury, photos have just surfaced on the Internet of Cavallari posing in wedding dresses. Ouch!
Kat Von D & Jesse James
Kat Von D and Jesse James, who were engaged in January, confirmed yesterday that their plans for a summer wedding are off, and they are no longer together. The cause of the split up? Reportedly the two could no longer maintain their long-distance relationship—Von D films her show LA Ink in Los Angeles, while James resides near Austin, Texas. We can’t help thinking this breakup is probably for the best—James doesn’t exactly have the most stellar marital track record…
