“Pawn Stars” personality Rick Harrison is typically busy negotiating deals on historical artifacts, but it seems his main responsibility for the time being will be bartering down caterers’ fees. The reality TV star and pawn shop owner has finally set a date for his wedding, and his fiancée has stuck him with all the planning.
According to People, Harrison, 47, announced a date for his wedding to Deanna Burditt on Thursday. The Las Vegas couple will hold their wedding at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach, Calif., on July 21. If nothing else, it should make an interesting episode of “Pawn Stars.”
And it seems that Harrison is in charge of all the details. The reality TV star told People, "She sticking me with all the planning!" while attending a casino opening Wednesday night.
"I can't make that up," he said. "I just had no idea there was so much involved. I just thought you got a cake, had a party, buy a keg. But we're getting it done."
The “Pawn Stars” host also divulged several details about the size of his wedding, which was originally planned to be held in Las Vegas.
"It will be a lot of friends and family," Harrison told People. "It started off with about 40 people and it's well over 100 people now. You know how those things go."
In a move that’s sure to please “Pawn Stars” fans (and is in no way staged for the television), the show’s dimwitted star Chumlee is going to be the couple’s ringbearer. Let’s just hope he doesn’t loose the rings.
