  • Most brides choose to have their dad walk them down the aisle on their wedding day.

    Amanda Volf chose a jet pack instead, zooming down an ocean aisle to wed her groom-to-be, Grant Engler, in what appears to be a first-of-its-kind wedding Thursday.

    Instead of waiting for his bride at the end of the aisle, Engler donned one of the $90,000 contraptions himself, meaning both bride and groom flew in together to meet their shocked guests on the shores of Newport Beach, Calif.

    It was there that Volf, 25, from Grand Rapids, Mich., and Engler, also 25, said, "I Do," in what is being billed as the first jet-pack wedding in history.

The Dutch first used the word "wafel" back in 1744, according to Merriam-Webster, and the Pilgrims are said to have brought the dish to America.

    Fast forward to today, when waffles - from Eggos to Belgian-style - are an American favorite, dished up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Waffles have even become trendy in recent years, popping up on restaurant menus across the country with pairings like fried chicken, beer, caviar and more.

    To celebrate, cook up some homemade waffles today and through the weekend from the "Good Morning America" recipe archive. (Or for those

  • (Twitter/@jasminejae)Before Prince Harry was caught playing pool naked in front of cameras in Las Vegas, he was all dressed up at a Sin City hotel pool, wearing a tank top custom-made for a visiting bachelorette party.

    "He asked us if he could wear one of our bachelorette shirts and we didn't hesitate," one member of the bridal party, all from New York, told " Good Morning America." "[He] put it on and, wearing our tank tops, jumped on his friends shoulders and waved his hands in the air."

    The bridal party's tank tops said "Let's get Wild," and Prince Harry, 27, seemed determined to do just that when he ran into the girls last weekend, even asking who among them was single and where they were staying.
