Wedding Video of the Week:
"Best Thing I Never Had"

Okay, so technically this isn't a wedding video. But it is a video. And there is a wedding of sorts. Sporting sheer, lacy lingerie alone in a bridal suite, Beyoncé begins the video for her latest single, "Best Thing I Never Had," with a clear message: Dear Mr. Ex-Boyfriend, I'm getting married today, and it ain't to you! (Depending on your relationship with former loves, that may be a statement you identify with.) Beyoncé then dons a crystal tiara, a veil, and a heavily embellished ivory ballgown by Baracci-Beverly Hills for an outdoor sunset ceremony, which may or may not be on a golf course. She then changes into a satin Vera Wang dress for the video wedding's white-tie reception. And because the singer never released photos from her real-life nuptials to Jay-Z, this might be the one and only time we get to see Sasha Fierce as a bride. So soak it up. —Phillip B. Crook
