It's really uncommon to hear that a celebrity isn't inviting another celebrity or two to their wedding, especially when they work together! Katy Perry, though, is one of those artists who's never really settled into social norms.

She definitely has her reasons for not inviting Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie to her wedding, so let's hear her out before we start shouting about it, or whatever. It's important to go into this topic with an open mind, so we don't sit here bad-mouthing her when her.

Let's find out her reasons!

While it is a bit odd she's not inviting either judge, neither man seems to take offense to it. After all, why should she feel pressured to invite her coworkers to a wedding, when it's HER day? Not theirs, or a day for the fans.

So stop judging, and sit down and wait for photos or video of this beautiful wedding. Personally, we can't wait to see Perry and Bloom really tie the knot, we've all been waiting for it, you know you have too.

The pair first met four years ago, after Bloom swiped an In-N-Out Burger off of Perry's table at the Golden Globes.

"He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington, and he took it," she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Later that night, the moment prompted Perry to talk to Bloom. "Then later, I was at a party and was like, 'how are those onions resting on your molars?' and he was like, 'I like you.'"

Love at first... stolen burger?

Bloom proposed to Perry on Valentine's Day, in 2019! That means they've been engaged for a year now, since it's 2020.

“We went to dinner and I thought we were going to go see some art after dinner, but we pulled up to a helicopter,” she said of the night. “But it was really sweet.”

“Actually, the funny part is we had champagne in the helicopter and the box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note,” she said.

Things didn't go as planned, however.

“He was going to pull it out while I’m reading it, so I’m reading it but I’m hearing the champagne is like broken, the bottle’s everywhere. I’m still looking at the note but he’s pulling out this box that’s too big for his coat pocket and it rips his coat pocket and his elbow goes into the champagne.”

“He did so well,” she continued.

Onto the topic of Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. There are different types of coworker relationships. Sometimes you're close, other times you tolerate one another.

Perry revealed that Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie are not invited to the wedding because, simply put: "she cannot afford them". She's a "bride-chilla", she's sort of chilled, but she's also that girl who got engaged Feb. 14, and had the venue booked on Feb. 19.

Kimmel then asked if Richie or Bryan would perform at the wedding, and she once again said: "I can't afford them!" She claimed the wedding would be small, to try to rid the air of some of the awkwardness, as the interview happened while she was sitting next to both of the aforementioned judges.
