Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs love to keep the public guessing about their relationship. We weren’t even sure they were actually engaged when the news made headlines in April 2015. And as of September, reports had emerged claiming the couple may be having trouble due to long-distance dating. But hey, there’s always a chance they could try to keep their romance more under wraps and surprise us all with a secret 2016 wedding.
In June 2015, basketball pro Nick Young asked for Iggy Azalea’s hand in marriage with a whopping 10.43 carat rock. The next month, he spoke to Entertainment Tonight about starting to plan the nuptials: “I am trying to figure it out. I got to figure out how many people are coming, and then we go from there.” So if the guest list is in order, we expect to see a wedding in 2016.

Popular OAP Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru got engaged to pilot Tunde Demuren sometime in 2015 or 2014. Since then, the couple have held their introduction ceremony and released pre wedding pics. 2016 is the year they make things official.
Eva Alordiah kicked in 2016 with a proposal as her boyfriend Caesar proposed while she was performing at the Headies award show. They haven’t announced a wedding date yet but we can expect them to tie the knot in 2016.
Nashville star Hayden Panettiere confirmed her engagement to pro boxer Wladimir Klitschko in October 2013. Then the couple welcomed daughter Kaya Klitschko in December 2014. Hayden seems to be in a better place since completing treatment for postpartum depression in November 2015, so wouldn’t 2016 be the perfect time to plan a wedding with her baby daddy?
Rappers Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have been fueling engagement rumors with Instagram posts of huge rings on the Anaconda singer’s finger throughout 2015. Still, in May, he told Fader that he wasn’t ready to walk down the aisle: “It ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out.” But we wouldn’t be surprised if these pranksters spoof us and jump the gun in 2016.

Christina Aguilera and Matt Rutler announced their engagement on Valentine’s Day back in 2014. But so far, it seems as though their baby-making has gotten in the way of a wedding! Xtina, who has a son named Max Bratman from her first marriage, gave birth to her and Matt’s daughter Summer Rain Rutler in August 2014. We think it’s about time for a wedding now that Summer’s big enough to walk down the aisle with her parents.
We’re not even sure if Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are still seriously dating, as they’ve been quite elusive about their status since reportedly splitting in June 2014.
