No one loves Harry Potter more than my Blogger Bud Lauren over at https://shootingstarsmag.net, and she has all kinds of memorabilia to prove it. You'll also see mentions on her Instagram, and Facebook pages of this beloved character. So I wouldn't be surprised at all if she looked around her house and had 1 of the 500 original copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone from 1997. What makes them so special are the misspellings of philosopher on the back cover, and Harry's wand is typed in twice on his school supply list.

The son of her husband's family showing up to a couple's black tie optional wedding wearing military formal wear including all his medals, caused a bride to lose it. This Marine was mannerly and friendly, and many people wanted to take pictures with him.
The bride said that she had nothing against those in the military, but felt that wearing his uniform was a way for him to show off and steal the spotlight on her special day. In frustration, she asked him to leave the wedding. This scenario caused close to 1800 comments on Reddit before the moderators finally cut off any new responses. Let's just say that things got heated!
Do you think he was showing off? Did she overreact? Did he make a mistake? Was she the star of her wedding?
