    What is a " a WAGS wedding"?

    It can't be easy planning a WAGS wedding the same summer that Wayne and Coleen are staging their own multi-million-pound nuptials.
    But Rooney's fellow England star Joe Cole and fiancée Carly Zucker are determined their big day remains in the premier league.
    Hi! What is " a WAGS wedding"? I can not understand " WAGS". Thanks in advance!

    Re: What is a " a WAGS wedding"?

    This is what wikipedia 'told' me:

    WAGs (or Wags) is an acronym used particularly (but by no means exclusively) by the British tabloid press to describe the Wives And Girlfriends of the England national football team

    You are studying hard, thedaffodils. Keep it up!

    It has a connotation that the wedding was expensive, over-the-top fancy, and somewhat vulgar [unsophisticated].

    Anglika,

    Glad to "see" you again. Does it refer to the to-be groom who is footballer here too? How do I pronounce it? wag-s? Can I say " the clothes is "WAGS"?

    Please just take your time. Thanks in advance! Good night there.

    Hi - "WAGS" is pronounced just like the verb wags.

    What do you mean = "Does it refer to...."?

    I haven't yet seen WAGS used as an adjective to describe clothes, but that isn't any reason why it won't be. It is being used to imply that a great deal of money is spent on showy goods, so you see references to a WAGS lifestyle - all show and no substance.
