Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Because we're not already involved in more weddings than desirable, the marketing team at Universal has created a fake wedding blog (complete with YouTube channel) for the main characters of The Five-Year Engagement. In the movie, Jason Segel's Tom and Emily Blunt's Violet are happily engaged when Violet's new job forces them to move. So they postpone the big day and eventually it looks like the wedding might never happen. It's not entirely clear why (white person's problems?), but feel free to leave your best wishes on the couple's guestbook. Keep an eye out for fake goofy posts from Tom's friend Alex, played by Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt.

To the person who had to sit at the computer and write, "We're getting married! Yes, mom. Married. You can stop worrying. But Violet's father should start worrying...ha ha," let me buy you a drink.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
