Bride marries herself in lonesome wedding

Maybe some of us are destined to live our lives in a perpetual state of loveless isolation.

Laura Mesi, a 41-year-old Italian fitness trainer, took the next logical step and married herself in a full-fledged, egotistical wedding ceremony. Mesi gave herself a four-decade benchmark to find her soulmate, until she finally put on a $12,000 wedding gown and vowed to love herself till the end in front of nearly 70 guests, according to The New York Times.

"You can have a fairytale even without the prince," Mesi said.

The Italian government does not legally recognize the self-marriage trend known as "sologomy."
